Dress Like a Star at Your Awards Show Viewing Party

With awards season underway, one can’t help but stare with jealousy at the TV screen. From full-on ball gowns to sleek, body-skimming numbers, every celebrity looks picture-perfect. And me? In my lounge-around-the-house uniform of sweats and a tee, I don’t quite sparkle. But it’s not too late to change that. The answer: hosting a formal viewing party where getting just as glam as the movie stars on the flat-screen is required.

Cue this fete-worthy collection of floor-sweeping gowns and ultra sparkly sheaths. Simply throw one on, invite a few of your biggest movie-buff friends over, and make (or buy) a few festive hors d’oeuvres – your living room will begin to feel like a front-row seat at the star-studded venue (no interviews or paparazzi necessary).

Our Tadashi Shoji Boutique opens Wednesday, February 13, at 11AM ET.

New York Fashion Week has seen its fair share of new fashion trends, and right along with them are the fresh beauty looks. So what can we expect to stock our makeup bags with this fall? Between the barely-there makeup at BCBGMAXAZRIA; blue and purple eyeshadow at Jason Wu; nude manicures at La Perla and DANNIJO; and graphic nail art at Rebecca MinkoffNicholas K, and Degen (just to name a few) – it’s safe to say that bold and understated will live together in harmony.

And the hair? Put those curling irons away, because straight blunt cuts and messy, undone styles – from the grunge look at BCBGMAXAZRIA to roughed up ponytails at Richard Chai and Tadashi Shoji – are back.
