On the hunt for that perfect bridal inspiration for your big day? You’re not alone! All 2017 brides will now be on the look out for their dream dress, hair and makeup and whilst Pinterest is great, you really can’t do better than turning to the red carpet for high fashion looks.
If you want your choices to be bang on trend for 2017, award ceremonies might just hold the answer for you. To kick awards season off, celebs donned their finest for the Golden Globes.
Bridal Inspiration: Golden Globes 2017 Hair, Makeup & Wedding Fashion
Fairytale whimsy complete with starry embellishments starts us off on our run down of Golden Globes bridal inspiration, courtesy of the gorgeous Emma Stone, gracing the red carpet in her Valentino gown.
This very pale pink is a colour we can expect to see a lot more of in 2017, both on the red carpet and down the wedding aisle. Doesn’t it look fabulous with her auburn hair? Definitely one for the red head brides out there!
With a dress so beautifully decorated, Emma has quite rightly kept her makeup fresh and simple to avoid making the overall look too busy. I adore her choice of lip colour here, which flatters her skin tone perfectly. Strong and perfectly groomed brows frame her face whilst a pop of orange toned blusher really brings out those cheek bones.
Emma’s hair hair been put up in a wonderfully loose up do, which exudes elegance whilst still remaining quite relaxed.
Gina Rodriguez demonstrates perfectly how to do the roaring twenties fashion this year. We’re still loving those beaded tassels, a la 1920s flapper girls, but the Hollywood length and plunging neckline bring this bang up to date.
To continue the theme, Gina has opted for Hollywood waves in her hair, which as you can see look equally amazing on shorter styles as on long locks. Fantastic bridal inspiration for shorter hairstyles.
Lashes play the main role in Gina’s flawless makeup, really amping up the glamour and sex appeal of the whole look.
We saw a lot of one shouldered dresses at Bridal Fashion Week in October 2016, set to be the next big thing for Spring 2017. Right on time, Lily James chose to wear this simply stunning, Grecian gown, complete with an attached flowing cape and nipped in waist to really show off those curves. Figure hugging, yet still demure enough for a bride.
Shoulder length hair is the cut of the season, so I’m expecting to work with many more brides with this length in 2017, as opposed to the long tresses that brides-to-be often aim for. Lily has kept her hair cutting edge – shoulder length with loose, messy waves. This creates the ideal counter balance between cool and glamour. She’s also had just a touch of volume and lift added in at the crown for that really regal look.
Smoky eyes are a must here – just check out that smoulder! Her lips have been kept defined but nude though, so as not to over do it.
A newbie on the celeb circuit, Lola Kirke (seen in ‘Gone Girl’ last year) may not be a household name yet but she sure does have her red carpet style down – definitely one to watch for your bridal inspiration.
Just as embellishments are a must for 2017 wedding dresses, so is embroidery, just as Lola has worn here (oh, and there’s that pale pink again!).
Following suit with the length of the moment, shaggy, messy waves in a 70s style give this outfit a really relaxed feel, despite the dress actually being quite ‘princess-like’.
