Awards Season Inspo for your School Formal

It’s January and we are right in the middle of awards season. We’ve had the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild with the Grammys, the BAFTAs and the Oscars to come. You know what this means? Fabulous dresses here, there and everywhere! Over here at The Volte, we love a good red carpet gown, and so far this year, they haven’t disappointed. Why not take some inspiration for your school formal? Think silhouettes, on trend colours and styling choices. With so many looks to choose from, I’m sure there will be something to inspire you to have your princess moment!

We love the colour of Sophie Turner’s Louis Vuitton gown at the SAG awards. Pink is so on trend right now and this Needle & Thread dress is bang on trend.

Cynthia Erivo has been coming in hot this awards season and her sartorial choices are no different. Her stunning Schiaparelli gown ticked all our boxes. Bold colour, check, princess style, check, drama, check! We think this Alex Perry number does the same and it’s available to hire on The Volte.

Jennifer Aniston has been the talk of the SAG awards, mainly because of that reunion with Brad Pitt that broke the internet. Can they please get back together? But she looked amazing too in vintage Dior by John Galliano. We think this Winona dress replicates Jen’s look at a fraction of the price. Available to hire now.

Saoirse Ronan is so hot right now with the release of Little Woman. She earned Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress for the role. She dazzled in a sequin sparkly dress at the Golden Globes and we think a sparkling dress is always a winner for a school formal. Check out this amazing Bronx and Banco sequin gown available to hire. It would be perfect for your school formal.

Classic blue is Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020. There was no shortage of it on the red carpet (think Margot Robbie in Chanel checks at the SAGS, Tay Tay’s print at the Golden Globes) but we think Renee Zellweger’s pale blue Armani Prive gown was the standout. Looking for something similar? Try this Rotate by Birger Christensen dress available to hire.

Jennifer Aniston again, this time at the Golden Globes. She wowed in this Dior gown. We particularly love how the fabric fans out at the bust. Why not try this Eliya The Label gown that whilst not being as dramatic down below, still has that fan action up top. Available to hire now.
