For one of the more themed red carpets we have seen this year, both Taylor Swift and Odeya Rush wore beautiful doses dresses with hefty doses of scarlet for The Giver premiere. They walked the red carpet looking stunning as ever in two equally gorgeous gowns.
First, let’s take a look at Taylor’s dress:
Taylor picked a sharp red and cream-colored Monique Lhullier gown for the premiere, keeping her accessories simple with nude heels and minimal jewelry. I love this look, as I think it fits her well and has a fantastic shape to it.
Her pretty blonde hair was given a deep side part and a vintage-inspired wave. The red lipstick works well with the dress, while her signature cat eye makeup keeps the overall beauty look glamorous. This is definitely another style win for Ms. Swift.
And now for Odeya’s!
I was so impressed by her unique-for-the-occasion red Monique Lhullier gown at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards this past weekend, so I had a feeling Odeya was going to kill it on the red carpet for this premiere, too. Lo and behold, she looked wonderful Monday night in this bold scarlet gown from the Georges Hobeika Fall 2014 Couture collection. It fits her marvelously, the thin bow around her waist adding definition to her silhouette while flower-accented bodice supplied a dose of light drama to the dress. Definitely a win in and of itself, but then you see her makeup and hair:
And bam! Even better. She looked stunning with a similarly sheer red lip as her Teen Choice Awards makeup, and I like it for the same reason as before: it coordinates with the dress while not being too thick or dramatic. Odeya is only 17, which is right around when you should start playing with textures and brightness without going over-the-top with your beauty products. And then there’s that fun braided style, giving this an very modern yet carefree finish. Like I said before–I am super excited to see what’s to come fashion-wise and career-wise from Odeya.
While Katie Holmes didn’t wear red, she certainly looked lovely on the red carpet as well. Check it out:
If you have not read The Giver–which I feel like at least 75% of American schools force kids to do in fifth grade, or at least make today’s kids read the SparkNotes–and are not entirely sure why I am emphasizing how awesome it is that these two ladies wore red, then go do so. Seriously, it will take you like a day, and you will be happy you did it.
