anna Anna Kendrick stole the show in this elegant black design.

Actress Anna Kendrick stuck to the tried and tested black dress in a sultry design from Emanuel Ungaro. A classic gown sewn from black Dressmaking Fabric is the perfect outfit for almost any formal event and Anna gave a nod to the glamour of the occasion by adding a sparkly mesh cut out panel. Microfibre Dressmaking Fabric is the ideal choice to recreate this sleek look; composed of 100% polyester, microfibre is the ideal choice for evening wear due to its beautiful drape and silky "peach skin" surface. Microfibre is particularly popular for form fitting designed as it is not a very clingy fabric yet it falls and drapes beautifully to flatter your curves. Country singer, Carrie Underwood also chose a classic black dress, arriving on the red carpet in a classic design reminiscent of the classic Hollywood starlets of years gone by. This figure flattering mermaid cut design looks very simple at a first glance but with the addition of a gorgeous bow and fantastic train this Nicolas Jebran ensemble is a show stopper. To recreate this design you will want to opt for a Dressmaking Fabric with an element of stretch such as lycra jersey to flatter your figure and ensure full range of movement so you can dance the night away in perfect comfort.

Taylor Swift decided to explore her more adventurous side as she arrived on the red carpet wearing her most daring outfit to date. Featuring a tiny red bandeau top and high waisted, pink maxi skirt the revealing outfit was a huge departure from the more classic designs we are used to seeing from Taylor. Reminiscent of a 1980s prom dress, the dramatic design was a daring combination of red and orange and crafted from a shiny satin Dressmaking Fabric. Economy satin is not usually the first choice of Dressmaking Fabric however if you are looking to achieve a young, fun, party style like Taylor it is worth some consideration. Economy satin is known for its ultra shiny surface and is available to purchase in a wide variety of bright, bold colours. For a similar design with a more understated finish our duchess satin Dressmaking Fabric is ideal.
