today's post, I figured now was the perfect time to show this picture of Amber Riley looking stunning in a classic gown by Oliver Tolentino at The Golden Globe awards. I loved this dress the moment I first saw it, and I think she blew the other ladies out of the water, plus size or not. The mermaid shape is incredibly flattering on her, and what's not to love about a sparkly silver gown? The shape of the bodice brings old Hollywood glamour to mind.
The construction of this dress is interesting in that it has a drapey effect, even while being encrusted in sequins. Now, I'll admit, I know pretty much nothing about sequined fabric. The varieties I've researched online seem to be on a mesh backing, so maybe that provides some fluidity? Any thoughts?
