Thanks, all. I’ll have to hit the stores soon. (I loved how once I told the ‘rents I was attending the event, my father said: “You’re going to have to buy something new to wear, aren’t you?”)
I actually have fairly short hair… not even shoulder length and kinda layered. Any more hair suggestions?
I would do your hair like Charlize Theron or Natalie Portman wears their bobs on the red carpet. You can definitely smooth it out for a vintage Hollywood vibe.
Given that the event is in DC, I would go as conservative as possible. That said, you aren’t limited to black… I think a very mature jewel tone would be very pretty and would stand out (and not in a bad way).
