Remember dressing up? It seems like an eternity since we’ve been able to get super-glam for a party or an event. For celebrities, however, things have been a little different: This awards season, stars have still been slipping into their finest evening attire for various ceremonies like the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards. Even though there’s no physical red carpets to be had, and many of these shows are virtual, they’ve made sure to bring dazzling fashions even for their Zoomed-in appearances.
This approach got us thinking: We’re all missing getting dressed up, even if it’s just to stay home. Whether it’s for a birthday, a special anniversary, or just a regular Tuesday, why shouldn’t we go all out this year? Whereas 2020 was the year of cozy sweatsuits, this year is all about putting the fun back into fashion—even if nobody sees it, at least for now. And who better to ask for some styling tips than some of Hollywood’s leading stylists?
Below, Vogue reached out to a handful of reading red carpet dressers to get their tips on how to instantly glam-ify our wardrobes—from what earrings to wear, to what fragrances to put on. We might not be able to live the life of a famous A-list celebrity, but we sure can dress like one.
Below, seven stylists share their secret weapons for red carpet dressing.
