      TV Presenter and Red Carpet Host Stuart Brazell Shares Her 2018 Red Carpet Trends

      Now that the Golden Globes have taken place we are officially in the thick of awards season aka my fashion happy place! With countless awards shows happening practically every week until the Oscars, we are in for some exciting red carpet fashion.  Here are my predictions for 2018 red carpet trends:

       

      ALL-BLACK

      All-black ruled the red carpet at the Golden Globes in support of the Time's Up initiative and we may see this trend continue through the awards season.  Tadashi Shoji dressed Octavia Spencer in a Custom Black Sequin Blouson V-neck Tea Length Dress and she looked stunning. The figure flattering design and sequins paired with her pop of color earrings sparkled with Spencer's megawatt smile!

       

       


       

      Another wonderful option is the Kimora Crochet-Lace Motif gown.  This evening gown definitely brings the sex appeal with an alluring silhouette and nude underlining that enhances the crochet-lace motif.  The fit accentuates the figure and the long sleeves are ideal for a nighttime red carpet.  This black gown is definitely a red carpet showstopper!

       

       


       

      A fun and flirty option for a daytime red carpet is the Kennedy Dress.  This party dress is the perfect blend of casual and chic and also comes in cantaloupe and forest.  The stretch belt slims the waist and I'm crazy for the peekaboo cutouts on the skirt. Plus the dress is fully lined so it will photograph beautifully!

       

       


       

      BOLD COLOR

      After the Golden Globes blackout, we may see a lot of celebrities eager to wear bold colors.  I personally love bright and rich colors on the red carpet.  A nominated actress would look ravishing in the Briley Gown. Who says you can't wear red on the red carpet? The fitted bodice and floor-length skirt crafted from alternating tiers of finely pleated crinkle chiffon and lace scream red carpet success!

       

      I'm also crazy about this deep amethyst color of the Lyrah Gown. This shade of purple flatters every skin tone and is a truly gorgeous special occasion dress.  I also love the cascading ruffle sleeves that highlight the bare shoulders and sweetheart neckline.

       

       


       

      WOMEN IN SUITS & SEPARATES

      As we saw at the Golden Globes, women made a bold statement in tailored black suits and jumpsuits.  We will definitely see this trend more on the red carpet.  A fabulous, feminine take that is perfect for a nominee brunch is the Tegan Floret Lace Jumpsuit.  The beautiful blue color with the ivory lace brings happiness and fun.  The off the shoulder jumpsuit also photographs beautifully from behind.

       

      A wonderful option for the all-black power look is the Sloane Top with the Kianna Pant. The floral lace blouse accentuated by a crinkle chiffon tie-neck collar exudes classic feminity. This top is perfect for layering under a suit but also looks great alone. The relaxed fit of the Kianna Pant and clean tailoring play up the uncomplicated styling of these stretch crepe pants.

       

       

      Another look styling separates that is perfect for the Grammys or an after party is the Giovanna Crochet Top with the Giovanna Crochet Skirt. Tadashi and his design team have embraced and modernized crochet this season. The long sleeve crop top and curve-hugging skirt are cut from an engineered design of serpentine lines and open-weave patterns and will surely draw attention on the red carpet.  Everyone will notice the women in this look!

       

       

      I wish you all a wonderful red carpet awards season!
