Look Like a Starlet: Designer Prom Dress Collection 2016

Get Inspired By Reese Witherspoon's Style For Your Prom Dress

Whether you’re willing to admit it or not, there’s probably a celebrity you admire, at least style-wise. Even if it’s the embarrassed-to-say choice of Kim Kardashian – her fame may be inexplicable, but it’s hard to deny her impact on fashion. Hoards of visitors rush to the Kardashian’s West Hollywood shop, Dash, and she’s positioned herself as a red-carpet regular. Then again, you may find Nicole Kidman’s always understated and elegant style more to your taste. Jennifer Aniston has a similar aesthetic – she’s not known for donning anything excessive – her sophisticated Armani and Dior choices have a timeless appeal.

Award-show red-carpet dresses boast excessive prices, untouchable to non-celebs. But, surprise! You can circumvent all that ridiculousness and channel the super style of your favorite celebrity by checking out and choosing something from the designer prom dress collection 2016.

Reese Witherspoon

You won’t be getting the exact same dress as your preferred starlet, but you’ll be able to infuse your own personality into a dress that harkens to her fashion sense. One of the most popular red carpet personalities is multi-award winning and multi-talented Reese Witherspoon. You’ve never seen her in on a “worst-dressed” list or in a “What was she thinking?” because she just doesn’t make fashion missteps.  Petite and tiny, this Hollywood powerhouse – who has her own production company – just knows what looks good on her. She’s been walking the red carpet since she made her on-screen debut in 1991, as a child actress in “The Man in the Moon.”

Here’s Oscar/BAFTA/Golden Globe-winner Reese Witherspoon on stage at the 2015 Oscars, wearing her off-the-shoulder white-with-a-black-band accent, from designer Tom Ford

This La Femme Dress (21359) may initially not resemble Witherspoon’s 2015 Oscar gown, but it definitely conveys the elegance, and, offers a more youthful vibe. This is not to say Witherspoon and her look is too mature (she’s a very young-looking 39!), but the fuller skirt, replete with playful polka dots, and the strapless sweetheart dress are an ideal prom dress ($378, peachesboutique.com)

This Mori Lee Dress (97140) offers a sophisticated take on the black-and-white evening gown, and is ideal for the 2016 prom. The strapless dress features a very unique silhouette, with black panels accenting the white gown. The placement of the black panels is not only slimming, but very figure flattering. The high/empire waist created by the black panels is one of the most flattering elements. The skirt is deconstructed mermaid. It features a corset-style, lace-up back. ($330, peachesboutique.com)

This JVN by Jovani Dress (JVN26974) is another take on the black and white evening gown. It is, in fact, a dress you can imagine Reese Witherspoon wearing. It features a high-necked, stunning black and white lace sheath, with an open back and overlays a white sweetheart bodice. The black lace is not only intricately beautiful, but is positioned at the waist and hips to truly flatter the wearer. From the thighs down, the sheer lace silhouettes your legs.

Talk about deconstructed! You can almost imagine taking Reese Witherspoon’s Tom Ford dress and magically spinning it into a prom dress and the result would be this Rachel Allan 4033 two-piece white and black short dress. It is all kinds of adorableness, and unique, too. The pearl bodice with a zippered racer back and pearl-accented straps features a high neckline and bares your midriff in a sweet, not over-exposed way. The full and whimsical skirt is gorgeous black lace.  ($398, peachesboutique.com)
