Walking on the red carpet is one of the most exciting opportunities that anyone can ever experience. Amidst the rock star arrivals in limousines, champagne and assembled press, wearing the most appropriate clothing is essential. It must be unique, it must stand out and scream individuality, but above all it has to be practical. A slip, trip or fall in such a public place under watchful eyes might not just be embarrassing, but could also lead to a serious injury.
The right shoes
Although high heels are almost a prerequisite for ladies walking the red carpet, it’s important to wear high heels that are at least reasonably comfortable to wear. Too large a heel can increase the risk of suffering a slip, trip or fall.
The most appropriate clothing
A dress is the pièce de résistance of any outfit. Choosing the right dress can be an agonising experience for any woman, but wearing an impractical dress could be even more so. It’s important not to wear a dress that consists of a long train which could be stood on, causing you to slip, or trip, or even suffer a neck or shoulder injury. A simple, elegant yet practical dress can ensure that your night goes off without a hitch.
Some women may worry that a handbag may not be appropriate when walking down a red carpet, that it may look out of place against the dress. However a small bag may not only accentuate a dress, but is a practicality for carrying essential items like sticking plasters or a small bottle of water in the event of cuts from your heels or dehydration.
