Miss Universe 2014: Miss Columbia, Paulina Vega!

All of the hard work of the Miss Universe 2014 contestants finally came to an end this past Sunday, and our new Miss Universe has officially be crowned! Out of contestants from over 80 countries, one pageant queen was chosen: Miss Columbia Paulina Vega! Congrats, Paulina! Last year, Miss Venezuela, Gabriela Isler, took the Miss Universe crown, so for the second year in a row, the crown is being worn by a Latina.

Miss Columbia is the new Miss Universe 2014!

This year’s Miss Universe pageant was held in our home turf, in the USA (Miami, FL to be exact!). And, that’s our very own Miss USA, Nia Sanchez, all the way to the right in the picture above. We were, of course, rooting for her, and she made it all the way to be the first runner-up! The second runner-up was Miss Ukraine, Diana Harkusha, pictured in the middle above.

But, all eyes were on Paulina for good reason. Donald Trump, who owns the pageant, said that many thought that Paulina would be the Miss Universe Pageant Queen a few weeks ago when all of the contestants first arrived in Miami. Trump said, “from the minute she walked into the building, people said, ‘She’s a star.'” Trump and everyone else was definitely correct!

Paulina is a 22-year-old student of business administration from Barranquilla, Columbia. You could tell that she definitely has the poise of a business woman from the question and answer portion of the pageant! Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek asked her what women could learn from men. She answered strongly and confidently that women can learn equality from men. Watch her response here (at the 4:15 mark):

Of course, our favorite part of the entire pageant were the gowns, though! Miss Columbia looked absolutely gorgeous in her sparkly silver deep v-neck gown. This is hands-down a look that’s perfect for prom! For a sparkly look like Paulina’s, go with BG Haute E01017.

BG Haute E01017

It’s a glamorously sexy full-length gown that features a deep v-neckline, beaded and sequined shoulder straps, a sultry open back with intersecting strap overplay, and a fitted bodice with a seductive side slit. It’s a classic look with just the right amount of glam!

Rissy Roo’s Dress Testimonial: Macie Buch

A new year always means lots of new events to attend, which gets us excited to not only help all of our Roo Girls find their perfect dresses, but to then get to see them all dressed up at their events! Our most recent dress testimonial comes from Macie Buch and her mom Jennifer Wyers-Buch. Macie recently attended her Majors ball and wore one of our favorite new looks from our Spring 2015 collection: Sherri Hill 32146. Jennifer sent us the below pictures of Macie and said:

“Just thought we’d share a pic with the Rissy Roo’s staff. This dress by Sherri Hill was the talk of the Majors Ball in Indianapolis last night. Thank you so much!!”

Sherri Hill 32146

We thought this picture was too cute! Macie certainly looked flawless in her leopard print Sherri Hill dress! The number she chose is a fun and flirty cocktail dress that features not only the stand-out leopard print full taffeta skirt, but also a shiny, chunky black beaded strapless bodice, hidden side pockets (which you can see in the picture of Macie blow), and a peek-a-boo layer of pink tulle underneath the skirt. It’s such a chic look, and Macie showed it off so well!

Sherri Hill 32146

Check out those so practical hidden pockets! Macie’s posing here with her cheerleader friend Danielle Ludlam. They both look so cute in their two-toned dresses.

We loved everything about Macie’s look – from her dress (of course), to her loose curls, simple makeup, and statement necklace. It’s a perfect (flawless!) look for any semi-formal or formal event… from a Majors Ball, to Prom 2015, or even a Sweet 16. We can definitely see why she was the talk of the night!

Thank you, Jennifer and Macie, for sending in your pictures! We hope you had an amazing time at your ball, and we can’t wait to see you dressed up for your next event. Cheer on!

Selena Gomez in Winter White at the Golden Globes After Party 2015

While watching the Golden Globes is so much fun, the party (and stunning looks) never end at the awards show. The fun always continues at the after-parties, and all the celebs have even more gorgeous looks to show off! The looks worn at this year’s Golden Globes after parties were just as stunning as what was worn on the Golden Globes red carpet.

While we’re obsessing over so many of the outfits, there’s one that stood out from the crowd for us: Selena Gomez’s sleek and sexy plunge neck gown! We love the idea of rocking white well past the summer months, so to see Selena stand out in white during a winter awards show gave us the chills (in a totally good way, of course)!

Selena Gomez Golden Globes After Party 2015

Selena rocked the sexy plunge of this dress in such a classy way. She kept the accessories simple (and classic with a gold purse), and we love how she topped the whole look off with a soft red lip color. This look screams old Hollywood to us!

Our favorite party, though? That you can easily rock this look for prom! Go with Jovani 22884 to get the same exact sleek and sexy white plunge neck gown look. It’s a sexy jersey gown that features a plunging neckline and a low open back. Choose the Off White color to get Selena’s look, or go with one of the three other colors this classic dress comes in: Navy, Black, or Red. Which ever color you choose, this is a dress that will definitely have you feeling like a celebrity walking the red carpet!

Jovani 22884

2015 Golden Globes Fashion Trends: Yellow Dresses

There were so many glamorous trends being rocked on the 2015 Golden Globes red carpet. The lady celebrities looked beautiful in nude colored dresses and sexy lace numbers, but there was one trend that so many celebs wore that it was impossible to miss: yellow dresses! Leslie Mann, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Naomi Watts, and even Taylor Swift all wore shared of yellow for the Golden Globes, and we are obsessing over every single look! Check them out below.

Yellow dresses worn at the 2015 Golden GlobesYellow is a great color to rock to stand out in the crowd – it’s not a popular color like red, white, or black, but it’s so timeless. Plus, it looks great with a tan (hello, Spring and Summer months)! Did you notice another trend that all four of these ladies are rocking? Leslie, Jenna, Naomi, and Taylor’s Golden Globes dresses were all strapless dresses, too! Want to rock a strapless yellow gown for prom or your next formal event? Check out some of our favorites below!

Clarisse 2108

Rock an elegant sunflower colored strapless yellow gown with a ruched top like Taylor Swift with Clarisse 2108. It’s a chiffon prom gown with a beaded belt and a flared hemline. A dress like this will flatter any figure!

Tony Bowls 115573

Or, go for a lighter color yellow like Jenna Dewan Tatum with Tony Bowls 115573! This is a vibrant strapless lace illusion evening gown with a flowy chiffon skirt. We especially love this look because it incorporates two other popular Prom 2015 trends: illusion and lace.

Mac Duggal 51011

If you love the idea of rocking a lighter color yellow dress, but want something a little more modest without any illusion fabric, go with Mac Duggal 51011. This is definitely a gown that will have you feeling like royalty at prom, just like the celebs walking the red carpet! This dress features a strapless sweetheart neckline and a bodice that’s completely embellished with pearls, stones, and clear rhinestones. A slight keyhole opening is featured in the center of the bodice, and a long chiffon overlay extends all the way down to the floor into a delicate sweep train.

Alyce 6205

For a sparkly yellow look like Leslie Mann’s Golden Globes dress, go with Alyce 6205. It’s a velvet chiffon long dress with stud stones that are heavily beaded on the bodice and cascade down to the hemline. You’ll be sparkling just like the stars in this dress!

2015 Golden Globes Best Dressed + Get Their Looks!

The 2015 Golden Globes Red Carpet blew our minds! There were so many stunning looks, from traditional elegance to stand-out sexy, that it got us excited for the year ahead of glam, red carpets, and dressing up (and prom, of course). It was so hard to narrow it down to a few favorites, but read on to see our 2015 Golden Globes Best Dressed… plus how you can easily get these looks for prom or other formal occasions!

Greer Grammer

Greer Grammer at the 2015 Golden Globes

Greer Grammer always looks beautiful and well put together, but her look at this year’s Golden Globes was exceptional! She wore a stunning pale pink/nude ball gown with gold and silver floral accents that we are obsessing over. We especially loved how she accessorized with a sparkly gold purse!

Rachel Allan 6888

Floral is a popular Prom 2015 trend, so luckily it’s not too hard to copy Greer’s look for prom! Our favorite way to get the MTV Awkward TV show star’s look is with Rachel Allan 6888. Just like Greer’s look, it’s a sweetheart strapless ball gown with floral applique in a pink/nude color. All you’ll need to do is add a gold purse! Even though there’s no gold in the floral embellishments on this dress, because of the pale pink color, gold (or silver!) still totally works as an accenting color.

Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards

Twilight star Anna Kendrick is one of the cutest girls around, and her style is always just as cute. She couldn’t have looked more beautiful in her nude gown with red accents at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.

Alyce 6186

Rock the actress’ elegant look for prom with Alyce 6186. It’s a sweetheart tulle gown with lace embroideries on the bodice and down the skirt. You can rock it in nude/red like Anna, but it also comes in royal/black and white/black.

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes

Model Chrissy Teigen is our final 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Best Dressed. We loved her perfectly fitted beaded long sleeved look! The dress couldn’t have fit her body and showed off her sexy curves more perfectly.

Alyce 2349For a similar look at prom or any other formal occasion, go with Claudine for Alyce 2349. Just like Chrissy’s dress, it’s a lace beaded evening gown with a bateau neckline, illusion sections throughout the top, and long sleeves. Keep the accessories simple, just like Chrissy did, to allow the dress to stand out.

Did your pick for Golden Globes Best Dressed make our list? Leave our comment and let us know what looks you’re obsessing over! If there’s a dress you saw that you want to rock at prom, share it with us and we’ll help you find the perfect look.

Prom 2015 Trends To Get Excited About!

January 2015 is here, which means that it’s officially Prom Season again! All of the new Prom 2015 dresses are here, and this year’s styles are just stunning. From sparkles to lace to two piece to ball gowns, there are so many gorgeous new looks to choose from that it almost makes it impossible to pick just one. While it can be hard to narrow it down to just one dress, there are certain things you can keep in mind and look out for to help narrow down your choices. One of those important ‘check list’ items is what’s on-trend during a given season, which is what will be focused on here. There are five trends in particular that are set to be very popular for Prom 2015. If you want to ensure you’re dressed just like celebrities and red carpet fashion this prom season, start your prom dress search by choosing from one of the below five trends!

1. High Necklines

Necklines can be overlooked at times, but they are are big contributor to framing your figure when it comes to choosing just about any outfit (from a prom dress to a work outfit to your causal every day clothes). When choosing a neckline, factor in your bust size, neck length, height, and even the shape of your face.

High necklines have become popular lately because of their glamorous look and flattering attributes. For one, they make accessorizing easier since many have glitzy beading around the neck that mimics a necklace! In particular, look out for the high neckline halter tops that are gracing this year’s prom dresses; they are considered a universally flattering neckline.

Mori Lee 97052 High Neckline Halter Top Dress

Mori Lee 97052 is an example of a high neckline halter top dress that would flatter just about any figure. It’s a beautifully beaded high neck evening gown with a sexy open back and flowy chiffon skirt.

2. Sheer Dresses

Sheer dresses, also known as illusion dresses, were one of the hottest trends of 2014, and will continue to be at the top of the trends list for 2015. Sheer is all about showing off some skin in style and class, and this year’s Spring 2015 dresses definitely achieve that.

What’s particularly great about the sheer trend is that you can rock the look as much or as little as you find comfortable. There are dresses that incorporate sheer from head to toe, and then there are dresses that only have sheer in certain areas, like on the bodice.

Jovani 1255 Sheer Prom Dress

Dress designer Jovani is all about sheer dresses this year; their Spring 2015 collection is full of a variety of sheer dresses. As an example, Jovani 1255 is a sheer dress that’s great for just a little bit of sheer in a traditional ball gown prom dress look. This strapless ball gown features a beaded corset with sheer panels and a tulle skirt. Or, go with Jovani 88463 for an all-over sheer look. It’s a strapless floor-length gown that features embellished beading and a sheer illusion skirt and bodice.

Jovani 88463 Sheer Dress

3. Lace Dresses

Lace dresses are perfect for an elegant, sophisticated, yet so chic look for prom. After all, there’s a reason for the saying, “Lovely in Lace!” Lace has been on-trend for a few years now and won’t be leaving the top of the fashion lists any time soon. It’s a look that’s perfect for any occasion, which means you’ll be rocking a dress that you can easily wear to events other than prom.

Just like illusion, there are many different ways that you can wear lace. Many lace looks even incorporate the illusion and high neck looks!

Rachel Allan 6814 Lace Dress

Rachel Allan 6814 is a dress that incorporates both the lace and high neckline trends (as well as the two-piece trend, which is discussed below). While this two piece dress will show off some skin, it does so in a totally classy way with the incorporation of the lace bodice, high neck, and classic colors of white and black (it also comes in red, another classic color!).

4. Print Dresses

Print dresses are making a huge come back for Prom 2015. Prints like a bold leopard, zebra, or floral print are all about making a lasting impression and letting your personality shine through your dress. In particular, animal print and floral print prom dresses are already proving to be extremely popular this year. Many celebrities have been seen rocking floral print lately, and this is definitely a trend that will carry over into prom.

Sherri Hill 32245

Dress designer Sherri Hill’s go-to look this year is print, and the new dresses are so stunning! From floral, to leopard print, to stripes, to polka dots, Sherri Hill offers print dresses for just about everyone. Sherri Hill 32245 is a great choice for incorporating the floral print, lace, high neck, and two piece looks into one stand-out dress. It’s a flirty two piece cocktail dress with a lace halter crop top and a floral print skirt with hidden side pockets. Alternately, go for animal print with Sherri Hill 32176. This is a strapless ball gown with a chunky beaded bodice and a soft leopard print satin skirt. Both print looks are perfect for standing out in style!

Sherri Hill 32176

5. Two Piece Dresses

The last, but certainly not least, trend to watch for in Spring 2015 is two piece dresses. From beaded and sexy to floral two piece ball gown styles (like shown above), the two piece prom dress is already all the rage for Prom 2015. This look started to pick up steam last year, and will undoubtedly be this season’s hottest trend. As far as celebrities go, Miley Cyrus may be the biggest proponent of the look; you can catch her rocking a two piece crop-top outfit almost every day of the week! So, dare to bare this Prom 2015 season!

Mac Duggal 82376 Two Piece Prom Dress

For a two piece prom dress that also incorporates the illusion and high neck trends, go with Cassandra Stone by Mac Duggal 82376. As one of the most popular styles from the Cassandra Stone Collection, the sexy crop-top bodice features mesh cap sleeves that give further emphasis to this unique style. The waistline on the long jersey skirt is trimmed with large stones that match the color of the top. It’s a perfect dress to show off that summer glow!
