Curvy Girls - Violeta/Gina Bacconi/Charlotte Olympia/Pierre Hardy

For this outfit idea I wanted to create a traditional look which included a trendy piece and that's why I included these Pierre Hardy 'caged' sandals. This style of shoe looks amazing with an "evening look", and it's also perfect for a professional event. The Gina Bacconi dress is designed with side ruching and a fitted pleat skirt, this along with the Violeta wrap shoulder and belted coat creates a flattering fit to accentuate your curves. For the final accessory I went with the Charlotte Olympia gold box clutch because the gold exterior of the bag is a perfect compliment to the bright red dress, and the black casing inside the clutch matches the sandals.

Singer Mary Lambert has two great hair/makeup looks that I can't decide on. I truly love the red headband and red lip with this outfit. I would wear a plain headband — not a bandana — and continue on with the red lip if I was going to an event that required you to dress up a bit but still had a casual feel to it. The vintage inspired waves in the last photo is a great style for something more professional. Actually both styles would be perfect for a Christmas party, the latter I would say is a great choice for a work soiree, and since the alternative (bandana) is not as formal it works better with the relaxed atmosphere at a family and friends get together.

*UPDATE: Victor Cruz's fiancee, entrepreneur Elaina Watley wore this tan Violeta wrap coat with leather pants and black ankle boots while enjoying a night out with her family in Tribeca when they were surprised by the paparazzi. Their daughter Kennedy is the cutest!
