Ananya Fantasy Kaftan Gown & Cocktail Tunic/Dress.
The party season may be over for the majority of people with the snow storms approaching.
But, here in sunny, warm Hollywood, the entertainment industry is gearing up for the Awards Season, the industry's high society season.
It is also the time when nominees and thespians start shopping and picking their gowns, hair, and makeup for all these galas and soirees and those televised award shows.
The Arriviste had the privilege back in November to gain a sneak peek of what the nominees and guests may wear within a week on the Golden Globes on January 15th or the Grammys in February.
Since it is still poolside weather and the climate is easy, London designer, Ananya provides the right amount of ease and glitz with her glimmering sequin kaftans doubling as late-afternoon "twilight" gowns that speed directly into night.
A favorite of Kate Moss, Kylie, Madonna, and Kiera Knightley, this is new Brit Cool style or Brit Ease where Indian culture meets Hollywood glam, making it approachable for Spring and Summer Eveningwear.
It is not Awards Season or Hollywood High Society Season unless someone tosses in some spangle.
Think Holiday glitter refined into sexy and sleeker silhouettes...or incorporating it into unexpected forms...as in garden wear gone glam.
These prim and proper sheath dresses get dipped in sequins, with a slash of chiffon, by Alexia Admor and Blue Tassel.
The fabrications may be fierce but the price tag is friendly, ranging under $200.
Expect more red carpet fashion and style soon.
Time for this scribe to prep the outfit and primp that hair and makeup.
