Prom Dress Inspiration from the Golden Globes

Did you catch the Golden Globes award ceremony? It was packed full of starlets strutting down the red carpet in the latest fashion trends. A few styles stuck out as the perfect looks for the 2014 prom season. Here are a few examples:

Rainbow hues
Color was everywhere on the red carpet during the Golden Globes. Members of Hollywood wore bright red, turquoise, yellow, green and magenta hues. For a youthful look, wear an above-the-knee dress in one of these showstopping colors. Or you can seek out cheap prom dresses with sequins so your color of choice comes across even more dazzlingly.   

This prom season you don't have to settle on one color. Tons of celebrities wore gowns that sported multiple contrasting or complementary hues. Browse through many formal dresses until you come across the color combo that works for you, like monochromatic red, nude and pastels, or black and white.


 Princess Style
If you are wearing a strapless gown for the prom, seek out the princess style. It has a sweetheart neckline with a fitted bodice and wide skirt for a fairy tale look. It was worn by many young starlets on the red carpet.
