Don't Fight It: Pretty, Frizzy Hair

Cursed with frizzy hair? Not anymore. The newest trend is all about embracing the frizz, instead of fighting it.

Brushed Out Curls

Bigger isn't always better, but when it comes to this type of frizzy hairstyle, the bigger, the better. Get super exaggerated volume by brushing out your curls for an edgy, not-your-average curly haired look. Los Angeles-based celebrity hairstylist Jonathan Mason tells us how to get the style:

1. Using a 1-inch curling iron, curl your hair away from your face, spraying Wella Dynamic Fix Hairspray as you go.
2. Repeat step one until your whole head is curled, and gently brush out your hair.
3. Spray Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, all over your head to prep hair for backcombing.
4. Backcomb your entire head with a small tooth comb, piecing apart your curls with your fingers to shape.
5. Once you are happy with the volume and shape, spritz your hair lightly with a finishing spray.

Bedhead Ponytail

There's nothing easier than pulling your hair up into a cute ponytail. But sometimes the tried-and-true pony look can get a little ... tired. Create some visual interest by opting for a ponytail that is deliberately messy. Alejandra tells us how to get the style:

1. Start by spritzing your dry hair with a volumizing spray, and then layering on a sea salt spray, like Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. Turn your head upside down and blow dry completely.
2. Next, begin curling your hair with a 3/4-inch curling iron, wrapping your hair around the rod in different directions. Repeat this process until your entire head is curled.
3. Rake through your curls with your finger, softening them into waves. There should be lots of texture and volume in your hair.
4. Next, flip your head over again and gather your hair into a pony at the back of your head and secure with an elastic. Flip back up and pull out a few face-framing pieces.
5. Spritz some beach spray onto your dry ponytail, and scrunch your pony with your hands to give it even more messy texture.

2012 Emmy Awards Red Carpet

Ariel Winter in Katharine Kidd

That is way too much dress and shoe for such a tiny little girl.

Jane Levy in Pamella Roland

Fabulous color.

Melissa Rauch in Oliver Tolentino

Another fabulous color. This was probably the most colorful red carpet we've seen in some time.

Christina Hendricks in custom Christian Siriano

This dress puts the goods on display without being too in-your-face and without looking like she's wearing a sausage casing. We like the belt; it does a very good job of defining her waist. I don't love the color, but it does suit her.

Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2012 Couture

It's a beautiful dress, but literally every single accessory matched it exactly. Come on now, Barbie.

Evening dresses with sleeves are in the latest fashion. Wearing evening dresses with sleeves in a suitable way will make you look desirable, getting outstanding from the crowd. An elegant evening dress with sleeves is the best choice for all women. If those of you with slim and trim figure are done wearing those LBDs aka little black dresses then it is the right time for you to try various other dress types.

Single colored dresses are often the best selected dresses with sleeves. Hence, be sure you select the best color that suits your complexion as well as the mood of the event.If you are looking for a formal black tie dress, wedding, business event, etc. then you need to choose long or full length evening gowns. But, if it is a semi formal or informal event like a cocktail party, evening party or homecoming party, then you can definitely experiment with length of the gown or cocktail dress of yours. The best and in vogue option to try for is a tea length dress with sleeves, which you can also wear to a wedding and such formal occasions. You may like to try knee length dresses with sleeves and vintage dress patterns like A-line dresses with sleeves, if you are looking for plus size evening gowns.

You have a wide range of fabrics to choose from, when it comes to evening gowns. Some of the traditional yet ever-popular choices of evening gown fabrics are, velvet, satin, silk, chiffon, organza, Georgette, tulle, etc. Choice of materials always depend on your body type and the mood of the occasion. You can also get inspired from the patterns of black dresses for juniors like ruched gowns, wrap gown, draped neck gown, shirt gown, embellished belt gown, kimono gown and evening gowns with asymmetric waist and asymmetric length. When it comes to dresses for women over 40, they can opt for medium length dresses with three fourth sleeves, full sleeves or mini sleeves.

Try Celebs' Red Carpet Looks - Celebrity Dresses

Bustier Babes

Scoopnecks and straps can be a bit tame for the red carpet. But a skintight structured bustier, like the ones Jessica Alba and Katy Perry are wearing? Pitch-perfect sex appeal.

Dressy Jumpsuits

These one-piece wonders are a fresh alternative to the typical red carpet gown. Just ask Kate Beckinsale and Cameron Diaz, who both paired dressy jumpsuits with bold jewelry, towering heels and fierce attitude.

Teal Appeal

Whether it's Kate Middleton in Jenny Packham or Emmanuelle Chirqui in Maria Lucia Hohan, there's something about a brunette in teal...Done up in sturdy cotton or wool, teal can be overbearing. But chiffon or silk? Totally gorge.
