Nearly every woman in this entire planet looks up to Hollywood for gowns and dress ideas. After all, there is no other epitome for class, sophistication and elegance than these Hollywood femme fatales. Over the years, even the bridesmaid dresses have taken a new turn. Bridesmaid dresses styles have shifted from froufrou, pearls and bows to slits, sweetheart necklines, bare backs and diamonds. This turn in fashion could be largely attributed to what Hollywood celebrities wear during awarding ceremonies or on the big screen. Let us get a glimpse of ten of the best Hollywood celebrities’ gowns that have the potential to be a sweet, sophisticated bridesmaid dress.
1. Penelope Cruz’ intricate blush Atelier Versace gown, topped with a sweeping train was a sight to behold during the 2007 Academy Awards. This charming evening dress, in the right shade, would make lovely bridesmaid dresses. However, you have to get rid of the sweeping train and you ought to make sure you don’t have it made in white. Otherwise, with its elaborate details, it would end up looking like a wedding dress for sure.
2. Also worn during the 2007 Academy Awards was Cate Blanchett’s shimmering silver crystal-mesh Giorgio Armani Privé gown. This gown may seem a bit to sophisticated to be worn as bridesmaid dresses, but with a few alterations in its shade and cut, you could make it work out. This would make one heck of a stunning bridesmaid dress.
3. Anne Hathaway’s blood red Marchesa dress was a looker during the Oscars 2008 Awards Night. The asymmetrical draped gown with floral shoulder and waist detail was, simply put, captivating. This would also make a great bridesmaid dress – minus the extravagant train and the bold color, of course.
