The color coral seems to be the flavor of the season, and nothing could prove this truer than various appearances made by celebrities in coral dresses, at a bevy of events that have taken place in the past few weeks.
Style Inspiration: Wearing Coral Dresses & Gowns
Coral outfits were seen in various cuts, falls and lengths, and each take looked pretty. All the lovely ladies, who were seen wearing coral dresses, did justice to their attire and are our style inspiration.
Bella Thorne & Dakota Fanning in Coral Gowns
Bella Thorne wore a dreamy Catherine Deane gown in coral to the 2012 Daytime Creative Emmy Awards. The outfit comprised of sheer layering on top of a subtly draped gown. The intricate floral pattern on the bust area of the sheer fabric added more beauty to the attire. This creation by Catherine Deane is a winner, and we are totally eyeing it! Bella Thorne did absolute justice to her coral outfit and carried off the glamorous look so effortlessly that we had a tough time believing she is just 14. Full marks there!
Dakota Fanning looked all grown up and feminine in a plunging neck flowing coral gown. She was seen in this attire at the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award honoring Shirley MacLaine in Culver City.
Bella Thorne and Dakota Fanning are teen beauties who definitely know more than a thing or two about fashion, and something tells us that we will be looking at them for style inspiration in the future too.
Christina Milian, Eva Amurri Martino & Sarah Drew in Short Coral Dresses
Christina Milan wore a short off shoulder dress in coral to the Grand Opening Celebrity VIP Reception of the First Signature La Fitness Club that took place at Woodland Hills. Her outfit had a “going clubbing” feel to it, and she accessorized it well with delicate jewelry and a pair of nude platform pumps.
Eva Amurri Martino was dressed in a short lace coral dress at the premiere of Columbia Pictures Thats My Boy at the Regency Village Theater Los Angeles. She kept the style classy by doing her hair in an updo.
Sarah Drew looked stylish in her belted short coral dress at the 11th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in LA. She wore a pair of green strappy ankle tie-up sandals that looked very interesting when matched with coral.
Style Tips for Wearing Coral Dress
- We saw two of the celebrities sport purple manicures with their coral dress. This is a very striking combination; in fact you can take it a notch higher. You could pair purple accessories, like a shoe or a bag, with your coral dress.
- The color gold also goes well with coral, so you could stylize your outfit with delicate or chunky golden jewelry such as bangles and earrings.
- Minimal makeup looks the best with coral; this is because the color makes quite a statement in itself. Pink tones will be perfect, so use a blusher and lip gloss in this shade. Keep away from overtly deep or vibrant lip colors.
