7 Red Carpet-Worthy Options By LA Designers
For most of us, attire for watching this Sunday's Academy Awards will likely be something more conducive to eating massive quantities of nachos (or is that just us?) and cozying up on the couch shouting at the screen when our favorite movie doesn't take home the big prize (sigh, it never does). However, if you're an LA-living lady—or even if you're not—there will likely be a time in your life where you'll be in need of a red carpet-worthy gown for a black tie soiree. It might be your fancy friend's wedding, a night at the opera, a formal philanthropic function, or film screening, but it will finally be your chance to get especially glam and ready to put your inner Ruth Negga/Isabelle Huppert/Frida Pinto (they're our faves to watch this year) to work.
There are more Los Angeles-based designers doing formalwear than you may think—and plenty of them are within a reasonable price point. We've rounded up a few of our current favorites for black-tie appropriate affairs, from an etherial, embellished gown with a dramatic train to an asymmetrical jumpsuit, with lots of options in between. Now it's up to you to figure out what fab function you're going to wear these to.
