Black tie events are the ones that give us girls the opportunity to channel our inside princess. Finding the perfect dress becomes a real challenge because there are so many designs based on what kind of princess you want to be. The first type is the Disney Princess dress with puffy skirts, shiny silk and a lots of rhinestones. I find them perfect if you are invited to a Viennese ball and you actually know how to do a waltz. Personally I’ve been over puffy Disney Princess dresses since the age of 12. The second type is the overly complicated and modern design which you’d see on the most extreme Couture shows. With some being 100% transparent, some featuring 10 meters tails, and others being constructed in such away that you’d need three people to help you get inside, if you aren’t going to the Oscars then better look away.
When in doubt I ask myself what would Lady Diana wear and go for the modern princess look. I took it a step further by not wearing any bling bling accessories with my Angelos Bratis dress, and playing more with the hairstyle. Because I was attending the premiere of the movie Saving Mr.Banks and not really attending a ball the choice of the dress came to how comfortable it was when staying seated for 3 hours and how awesome it looked on the red carpet. It took me one week of searching but at the end it was totally worth the hard work.
