With the Oscars this weekend, we are all super amped to see all of our favorite movie stars in their glitzy gowns. So what about our real life black tie events? A black tie event is the perfect excuse to live like your favorite starlet for a night. It’s our version of a red carpet moment, after all. Plenty of planning and time goes into a black tie night and outfit. The gown has to be fabulous, the heels shiny, and the jewels sparkling. This is your time to channel your favorite style icons and show the world exactly who you are. These nights are all about celebrating, so do it up and glam it up! Decide what you want to project, while always keeping in mind what works best with your body. With that said, we at The Divine Addiction wanted to inspire you for your own formal parties, so what’s your formal wear vision?
