How To Stay Funky In A Beaded Gown

A full length beaded gown can weigh you down and add 10 years to your age, or it can make you the belle of the ball. SJP shows us how to rock the ball gown.



# 1 Show Some Leg

A center slit in the dress, gives a full skirt some breathing space, and some lightness. It also accents your funky shoes.

#2 The T-Strap

The magical T-strap, adds attitude, youthfulness but still keeps the glamour.



#3 The Funky Hair Style

This divine hairstyle is sophisticated, playful and fluid. The movement and imperfection of it, makes it that much more perfect.



#4 The Slouchy Bag

This vintage style handbag adds color and the softness helps keep the look current.



#5 Keep The Drama

What is a ball gown without the train ? Trimming the train is perhaps practical, less people stepping on your dress, but kills the fairytale appeal of it.



#6 Have Fun With It

Nothing says youthful like a fun attitude. Heavy dramatic dresses have a way of stiffening us up, perhaps the weight of the dress… embrace a more relaxed demeanor, it's your best accessory.
