Stun in scarlet like Cat Deeley
Cat looks like the cat that got the cream (sorry) in this stunning and vibrant one shouldered red dress at the 2012 Emmy Awards. Wearing a bright colour is a sure-fire way to stand out, and this fiery colour looks beautiful against Cat’s sun-kissed skin and blonde locks. The one shoulder detailing is bang on trend, and the long, flowing maxi style of the dress is classy, as well as contemporary. Copy Cat’s look with this dress from Koo-Ture.com, a mere £55. perfect for special occasions, the colour will suit all skin and hair tones and the cut is uber-flattering.
If you have opted for a one shoulder dress, follow Cat’s lead and wear hair up to really show off the detailing – and avoid necklaces, as they will detract from the neckline. Cat has kept her blonde hair super shiny and clean for that Hollywood effect, so if you fancy doing the same, wash your locks on the day of prom, using this enhancing shampoo, £1.95 from Superdrug. However, remember that if you do wash your hair on the same day you wish to style it, hair will be a lot softer, so you will have to use more hairspray and bobby pins to keep your do in place.
As your hair will be up, this is a fantastic chance to showcase some show-stopping earrings. We love Cat’s Egyptian style exotic looking drop earrings – the perfect compliment to the dress. Get these copy cat earrings, £8.50, from the ever reliable Miss Selfridge and wear them for a glam look – which is exactly what we want come prom night!
The finishing touch to any prom girls outfit is, of course, the little clutch bag. Cat has co-ordinated her bag to her earrings, going for the classic red and gold combo. We found this adorable bag from It’s Vintage Darling, £55 – perfect from prom! Unusual looking and sophisticated, this little clutch will be the icing on the cake of your wonderful prom outfit.
