A fortnight has passed already and it’s that time again, #OMCZ 27! This week’s theme has been chosen by the lovely Becky, and this is what she wrote:
As it is award season I would love to see some Red Carpet Glamour. Be inspired by some of the amazing outfits that have been down the red carpet and try and incorporate some of the key trends that seem to be appearing (colour blocking, bold colours, black and white) or even try and emulate your favourite stars red carpet look.
I did worry about this one a bit…. I try to incorporate the theme into my every day wear, and although my work colleagues at the day job know I’m a bit eccentric, and I’m not afraid to be a bit different in what I wear, to wear what I would really like to wear, and what I see as the ultimate red carpet outfit might just be a little bit too much for the office on a Wednesday, even by my standards…. Here is one of the most inspirational people for me and what I see as red carpet glamour personified, Ms Beth Ditto!
The fact I also do not possess anything remotely similar to this in my wardrobe as well also proved a problem…. Lol!
So I looked at some of the other influential people within plus size celebrities, Melissa McCarthy, Gabourey Sidibe, Amber Riley and Adele to name a few. Although I could probably have put together something that Adele may wear from my more vintage styled items in my wardrobe, I decided to go with Rebel Wilson….. Here is a photo of Rebel on the red carpet and here is my spin, adding that little bit of me to the mix. This may seem a little safe for me, but I still like it! What do you think?
