Trend Alert: the Formal Jumpsuit

Yes The Help took top honors at last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards but we all know it’s Rose Byrnes sequined ivory jumpsuit that has tongues wagging.

Trend Alert: the formal Jumpsuit

The Bridesmaids actress looked every part the red carpet diva wearing a fully embroidered and embellished ivory jumpsuit from the Elie Saab Fall 2009 Couture collection. While some fashion critics can’t quite decide whether the look was for them, there’s no denying that it makes a statement!

Inspired by Rose’s courageous foray into the couture “onesie”, I’ve rounded up some elegant jumpsuits that have that red carpet edge.

Starting from left is Alexandre Vauthier’s silk wide-legged jumpsuit. A contemporary take on old Hollywood glamour, this jumpsuit will have you looking like Miss Monroe herself. Next up is Kevork Kiledjian’s silk-chiffon asymmetrical jumpsuit. Reminiscent of beautiful gowns worn by Gwyneth Paltrow and Natalie Portman you’d almost forget that you’re wearing pants! Third is my favorite of the bunch – a lace and mesh jumpsuit by Asos. A sultry silhouette with beautiful keyhole back detail, I’d envisage this on red carpet risk-taker Angelina Jolie. Finally, last but not least, is another jumpsuit by Asos fit for the celebrity Diva. The striking hue and classic cut were made for the likes of Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez. Nothing shows off a famous behind like a jumpsuit after all!

While it may take a confident women to pull off the figure-hugging jumpsuit styles, this diverse selection shows that just about anyone can channel a little Rose Byrne with the right jumpsuit!
