This year’s red carpet was particularly inspirational. There were many breathtaking gowns which are simply ideal for weddings. One of them was certainly Cate Blanchett’s Nude Armani Prive dress with delicate capped-sleeves and embroidered with sequins and Swarovski crystals. She accessorised the dress with a pair of gorgeous opal drop earrings by Chopard. To match this romantic styling, she opted for vintage hairdo with old Hollywood waves. Her make-up was very simple and natural with taupe and brown eyeshadow, false eyelashes, a bit of blush on her cheeks and soft pink lipstick.

Margot Robbie looked stunning with her new dark brown hair colour styled in elegant bouncy curls. While many celebrities sported natural make-up looks, Margot went for a more evening glamour look with berry lips, dark brown eyebrows and spectacular eyelashes. She wore a stunning Saint Laurent black strapless dress embellished with sequins.

Kate Hudson’s old-school red carpet glamour was by far our favourite look of the night. She wore an elegant silver cape gown by Atelier Versace with structured shoulders and a cowl neck at the back. Her hair was parted on the side and curled into soft mermaid waves, while the make-up was dramatic with heavy smokey eyes matched with sensual pink lipstick. The perfect look for your big day!

Giuliana Rancic’s fairy-tale gown created by Australian designer Paolo Sebastian looked is an ideal wedding dress. The top of the gown features beautiful embellishments and the skirt is made from layers of tulle. She wore it with Forevermark Diamonds jewellery, a Judith Leiber clutch and Sergio Rossi shoes. Her hair was parted on the side and gathered in a bun, while her make-up was very effective with brown smokey eyes, big eyelashes and a matte lipstick in nude colour.
