Prom Dress 06 II: Off the Runway

Off the runway, we look to the stars and the stores for inspiration.

Conveniently for us, ABS has a collection of dresses that is literally off the red carpet, called the "Red Carpet" collection. I think its pretty cool. They have Natalie Portman's vintage Chanel that she wore to the Golden Globes this year, which I love, because it is just SO classic and elegant. It looks so similar that I noticed the resemblance even before I read about the idea behind the collection!

Sometimes, the ABS copy is even better than the real thing. I bet Charlize Theron wish she wore this ABS copy to the Golden Globes instead of the real Dior by Galliano see-through version.

Also in stores are dresses in the color of this season's brown. I adore the brown/gold dress BCBG on the left, its just good to see something different in dresses. And the model looks good in the brown BCBG dress on the right, especially with that tan!

Look young and cute in these BCBG taffeta dresses with a bow. They are so fun! Although I'm not too fond of the slight 'bubbling' of the skirt on the right.

Then there is the ever elegant goddess look. I especially like these two from BCBG, with the fading wash of colors. Although with that length, you really have to be tall to carry it off.

But if you, like me, are not that tall, there is always these goddess-like dresses from ABS with the short or assymetrical hem.

So happy prom dress hunting everyone. And remember, find something that is flattering to your body and that you won't cringe at when you see your prom pictures 10 years from now!

I love the blue/pink dress! Too bad I'm not even five feet. :(

My high school only allows calf length and longer dresses, but they're allowing knee length for prom. Dress codes are annoying.

Natalie Portman looks so cute with short hair! Screw updos, that's how I want my hair for prom.

Ooh la love.

Pretty adorable.

I never went to prom, thank God. I almost wanted to for 2 seconds, then I realized I could just get elaborately dolled up for the opera instead.

Puccini was lovely.

Natalie Portman's dress is lovely!

Her simple strappy shoes are great too.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
