I have never dreamed of walking the red carpet in Hollywood, yet I feel like Cinderella headed to the ball! This weekend, I have the amazing opportunity to travel to Hollywood for the red carpet premier of Cinderella by special invitation from Disney. Finding a red carpet worthy dress was at the top of my to-do list!
I shop at Kohl’s for my entire family, so naturally I went to Kohls.com to see if they had evening dresses. I was surprised to see how many evening dresses there were to choose from! I was immediately drawn to the black evening dresses!
I received a gift card to facilitate this post.
Finding a Red Carpet Dress at Kohl’s #CinderellaEvent
Soon after I received the invitation to Hollywood, I was told that since this is a Cinderella movie premier, there was to be no black dresses on the red carpet worn by the Disney bloggers. Boo! You know that most of us would have chosen black because it is so forgiving for our figures. However, since we had this rule, we have all really enjoyed shopping for dresses of many different colors.
I really liked the 1 by 8 Embellished Mesh Evening Gown, is so romantic and princess-like, making it a great choice for the Cinderella premier. We were told to not wear black, so I didn’t think gray would work either for this particular event.
I also considered the the Jessica Howard Tiered Evening Gown & Shrug Set, but without the shrug. To me, it looks too much like a mother-of-the-bride dress with the shrug. I really like the tiered chiffon design, it looks like it would be flattering for many different figures. The silver color would be perfect for any formal event, including the red carpet.
When I found the 1 by 8 Embellished Full-Length Dress, I knew it was the one for this event. It subtly screams “princess” to me with the sheer, lightweight georgette top layer. The ruched waistline adds both romance and forgiveness for less-than-perfect figures too.
It is a very comfortable dress to wear too, which is important since I’ll be wearing it for hours for the events leading up to the premier and throughout the movie. I just had the dress hemmed today since it was too long for me. I can’t wait to pick it up tomorrow!
I was very pleased with the selection of evening dresses at Kohls.com. If you don’t shop online, you really need to check it out. There is so much more on Kohls.com compared to in stores. Plus, you still earn Kohl’s Cash and Yes2You Rewards with every purchase.
This week, I’m shopping in stores for outfits, purses, and jewelry for my trip. Stay tuned! Also, follow along this weekend during the Cinderella Premier with #CinderellaEvent and join the fun!
