Get the Look: Met Gala Dresses 2022

It’s safe to say we’re still obsessing over last week’s Met Gala red carpet. Arguably the most prestigious night in fashion, The Gilded Age theme offered red carpet styles dripping with beading, sequins, and plenty of excess. And whether it took the form of a breezy neon pink gown a la Nicola Peltz Beckham or Marilyn Monroe’s infamous crystallized Happy Birthday Mr. President dress (donned by the one and only Kim K), the red carpet fashion did not disappoint. Here at Camille La Vie, we know the value of a red carpet moment, from the Oscars to your own prom night. And let’s be honest – it all starts with an unforgettable dress. Ready to have your own best dressed moment? (We know you are!) Scroll below for our top look-alike styles from the 2022 Met Gala, pulled straight from the Camille La Vie collection.

Leg Slit Evening Dresses That Ch...

Side cutouts. A plunging neckline. An open back. There’s plenty of flirty ways to show skin when dressing to the nines, but there’s just something about a thigh-high leg slit that just exudes red carpet glamour. From Angelina’s famed Oscars dress to basically every Kendall gown, showing off your stems is basically a mainstay in the world of formal wear. Ready to strut your stuff this summer? We pulled 10 long prom dresses that are a cut above the rest (see what we did there?) Scroll below so you, too, can have your red carpet moment. Killer pair of heels optional. Whether it’s spring, winter, summer, or fall, a leg slit dress universally suits any season, making any of these styles perfect for an upcoming RSVP…and again for a glitzy holiday party. Leg slits serve a dual purpose of posh and practical; a pop of leg makes maneuvering around the room (and dance floor!) a breeze due to its non-constricting silhouette. A thigh-baring look is daring on its own, so scope out dresses with more modest necklines. Get set to stun in a mod halter neckline style, or go for a sequin v-neck for an extra dose of luxe. Want to be on-point with one of the hottest trends? Then a lace corset dress is your black tie go-to. Slip it on and the night is yours. Find more evening dresses with leg slits for weddings, formals, or wherever the invites take you on CLV.com. Xo, Camille

Spring Silhouettes: Evening Dresses for Your Next RSVP
Formal Dress Styles long evening dresses

Spring Silhouettes: Evening Dres...

When shopping for an evening dress, there’s a few factors that determine the look you choose, depending on your personal style. The color. A lot (or a few) embellishments. The neckline. But what about the silhouette? The shape of a dress can dramatically enhance your appearance for a flattering finish. When you keep your body type in mind and what you’d like to highlight, it can make all the difference in how you feel inside and out! Scroll below for 4 of the most popular evening dress silhouettes and how to navigate between each. Ballgown Shop: Off the Shoulder Placement Embroidered Tulle Ballgown A full skirt not only adds drama to your look, but puts more attention on your upper half; specifically your arms and shoulders with this enchanting look. If your style falls more into the “girlie girl” category, then a ballgown evening dress is perfect for you, whether it’s for prom, a gala, or fancy wedding. Column Shop: Floral Embroidered Dress with Cap Sleeves If a ballgown brings the drama, a column silhouette is just the opposite: fitted to the body without any additional flair. But don’t let the minimal silhouette fool you; a tighter fit gives curves the limelight, great for highlighting an hourglass shape. This floral embroidered evening dress is elegant, yet demure, gorgeous for that spring wedding on your calendar. A-Line Shop: Metallic Knit Lace Up Back Dress In between a ballgown and fitted look, an A-line evening dress is a classic choice that works for any formal event. This style is universally flattering on all body types, and puts the waist and upper body on display. Level up with a leg slit to elevate the flirt factor, like this on metallic lace-up dress. Mermaid Shop: Tank Illusion Plunge Mermaid Horsehair Dress Chances are you’re familiar with a mermaid dress, which draws in at the knees similar to a mermaid’s tail. Whether you’re looking to enhance or create an hourglass shape, this look is your fashion ticket. Own any evening in this beautiful plunging style and let the compliments roll (because trust, they will).

Follow her lead and capture the essence of Portofino by selecting a style with few or no embellishments, and also doesn’t compete with the shades of the Riviera. Stick to wine, red, gold, or green in sleek fitted silhouettes. Or, if you’re feeling especially fancy (say, for a gala!) slip into a floral ball gown that’s basically its own work of art. Oh, Paris. For the City of Light, Stephanie wore a pink high low dress adorned with elegant beading. The subtle embellishments against the silky Mikado texture feel tres chic for a picture-perfect day in Paris. (and can we talk about that Eiffel Tower backdrop for a sec?!) Shop: Mikado Antique Beaded High Low Dress Shop: Metallic Knit Dress Long Sleeve Dress Tank Plunge Dress Pleated Metallic Dress Long Sleeve 3-D Dress Parisian fashion is all about minimalist style with an element of surprise; think classic, unfussy silhouettes bearing 3-D florals or sleeves lined in pearls.

Have a fancy event coming up, perhaps a wedding, holiday bash, or formal night at school? Capture the vibes of fall in an evening dress that suits the shades of the season. The Camille La Vie collection has plenty of options to shop, from slim-fitting silhouettes to epic ballgowns and everything in between. Love some drama? Browse full body sequin dresses in off the shoulder, Cleo collar, and long sleeve styles depending on your fashion taste. Prefer a more minimalist approach?

Camille La Vie Makes Prom Dreams Come True at The Glam of Giving
Fashion Events ULTIMATE PROM GUIDE

Camille La Vie Makes Prom Dreams...

Prom dresses for a good cause? That sums up The Glam of Giving, which took place at the Vince Lombardi Center of Hope in Newark, NJ on Friday, April 15. The event had one objective: helping underprivileged girls look and feel like a princess for their prom. Here at Camille La Vie, we strive to help every girl find "the one" - from prom dresses to wedding dresses and beyond. Memories from these special events last a lifetime, and the perfect dress only adds to the magic. Camille La Vie gifted 30 of the 150 prom dresses at the event, contributing to the shoes and accessories donated by other New Jersey vendors as well. Dozens of excited teenage girls shopped the racks, with the company of Miss Newark and Miss New Jersey USA Alexandra Lakhman. The girls come from modest-income families who simply can't afford to spend $300 or more on a prom dress. Fourteen-year-old Jaylene Santana, who was seeking a gown for her eighth grade prom, found her dream dress from Camille La Vie. "It's just so beautiful! It makes me feel like a Disney princess...like a better version of myself," she said, holding her pastel pink embroidered style. The right prom dress goes beyond a picture-perfect appearance; but rather empowering young women to feel beautiful in their own skin. Prom isn't just the average school dance; it's a night to dress to the nines, connect, and have fun with your classmates. To us, that's a feeling worth celebrating.

Picture-Perfect Plus Size Prom Dresses

Picture-Perfect Plus Size Prom D...

Whether you’re long and lean, curvy and petite, or anywhere else on the spectrum of body types, we get it: shopping for a formal dress can be tricky. Add prom to the equation and it’s even more tempting to throw in the towel and stay home in your comfiest sweats (But really…don’t do this). After all, you want to look amazing for the biggest dance for the year, and honestly, a less than perfect dress fit just won’t cut it. Today, we’re specifically talking plus size prom dresses. From satin to chiffon, strapless to one shoulder, the Camille La Vie collection has plenty of options that effortlessly enhance curvy frames. As for silhouettes, mermaid and trumpet styles accentuate an apple or hourglass shape for a picture-perfect finish (we hope you like compliments!) Another fabulous option is an empire waist, which gathers higher on the midsection and provides a universally flattering fit. Considering your neckline will be in full view from dining to dancing, choosing a well-fit style is key (and also because….selfies) Go classic with a strapless or tank dress, or opt for a halter or one shoulder for a more unique way to highlight gorgeous shoulders. The cherry on top? Embellishments! Sequins, beading, rhinestones, applique…the options are plentiful. Keep your personal style in mind here; if you’re normally a simple jeans-and-tee gal, a glitter ballgown probably won’t be on your radar. However, a sleek column silhouette adorned with lace could be your fashion ticket. Always up for drama? Try head to toe sequins to mirror your more-is-more taste. Ready to find your perfect fit?

Our Top Tips on Posing for Prom Pictures
ULTIMATE PROM GUIDE how to pose in pictures

Our Top Tips on Posing for Prom ...

In a world filled with selfies, stories, and other social media shenanigans, the pressure to look good in front of the camera has never been fiercer. And with prom night rapidly approaching, you and your gals are sure to be all over Tik Tok and the ‘gram (unless you’re taking a much-needed break from social media, which in that case…good for you, girl!) But as far as posing, a simple smile can be a tad…boring. And peace signs and duck lips? Let’s not even go there. Slay in front of the camera with our tips for owning every picture, video, Boomerang- anything, really. Try the Tongue Trick Okay, okay, we know we mentioned that a simple smile can be a little too basic, but hear us out! For those classic moments when you just have to (hello posing in front of the mantel!), gently press your tongue to the roof of your mouth as you grin. This trick helps lengthen your neck and jawline and (ta da!) eliminates a double chin. Sign. Us. Up. Check Your Posture Repeat after us: Do. Not. Slouch. Rather than over-arching your back, pretend an invisible string is pulling you up from the crown of your head. Think of lengthening versus bending your spine back (because…ouch). Turn to the Side Fact: no one looks flattering facing the camera head-on. Whether you’re in a group photo or posing solo, angle your body about 45 degrees to the side (i.e. midway between facing the camera and totally sideways) Don’t forget to tilt your face slightly as well, and if one arm is free, place it on your hip for a super slender effect. Don’t Forget Your Legs Looking fab in photos is truly a head-to-toe effort! Make your legs look long, lean, and model-esque by crossing one foot behind the other. Bonus: this tip also works if you’re sitting down! Do Your Own Thing This one only applies to group shots. Whether you’re posing with one or three of your besties, have everyone casually do their own thing for a natural, non-stiff look. Pop one leg, blow a kiss, or giggle while looking at the gal next to you for an adorable, we’re-totally-being-spontaneous shot. The best tip for a flawless photo? A standout prom dress! Find endless styles on CLV.com. Xo, Camille

Channel Your Inner Princess with...

Unless you’re a lover of the limelight, a ballgown prom dress can be intimidating. Its grand, full skirt feels ideal for a fancy night out, but girls with a more minimalist fashion sense may be reluctant to try this lavish silhouette. But as they say in fashion and in life, you’ll never know unless you try! If you’re still in the running for finding that perfect prom dress and have debated on wearing a ballgown before, slip one on during your next round of prom shopping. Who knows; it could be love at first fit! With its full skirt and figure-hugging bodice, a ball gown style works for all body types, especially if you’re tall, as the grand shape balances out a long frame. But petites, have no fear! Ballgowns are flattering for you too; just look for an A-line style with a skirt that’s not as full. The Camille La Vie collection offers a range of beautiful ballgown prom dresses that give off that “I just stepped out of a fairytale” vibe. Ready for a happily ever after evening (and plenty of twirl-worthy Boomerangs?) Explore stunning styles in both shiny satin and ballerina-esque tulle, with a variety of gorgeous necklines like strapless, spaghetti strap, illusion, and more flattering cuts. And we know you’ll fall in love with the pretty embellishments; find luxe beading, chic applique, and rich embroidery, among other standout details. Whether you’re a limelight-loving princess or prefer to look chic on the sidelines, browse a variety of ballgown prom dresses that are made for an unforgettable evening.

We pulled 10 long prom dresses that are a cut above the rest (see what we did there?) Scroll below so you, too, can have your red carpet moment. Killer pair of heels optional. Whether it’s spring, winter, summer, or fall, a leg slit dress universally suits any season, making any of these styles perfect for an upcoming RSVP…and again for a glitzy holiday party. Leg slits serve a dual purpose of posh and practical; a pop of leg makes maneuvering around the room (and dance floor!) a breeze due to its non-constricting silhouette. A thigh-baring look is daring on its own, so scope out dresses with more modest necklines. Get set to stun in a mod halter neckline style, or go for a sequin v-neck for an extra dose of luxe. Want to be on-point with one of the hottest trends? Then a lace corset dress is your black tie go-to. Slip it on and the night is yours.

PREP FOR PROM: 10 Beauty Tips Every Girl Should Know
Beauty ULTIMATE PROM GUIDE

PREP FOR PROM: 10 Beauty Tips Ev...

As a girl, getting ready for prom can be a complicated task. Guys have it easy: rent a tux, buy a corsage and have little prep work the day of prom. But for girls it is a different story. Getting the perfect prom look could take lots of time and preparation. There is finding your dream prom dress, shoes, makeup, and hairstyle to complete your head-to-toe look. With so many things to think about, prom can be a very overwhelming time. That is where this list is here to help. Here are 10 easy beauty tips to help get you ready for prom and have a great night! 1. Find the right moisturizer: Finding the right moisturizer for your exact skin type can do wonders to make your skin smooth and shiny. Imperialis from Lush Cosmetics is a perfect moisturizer that works for basically all skin types. All of their products are handmade and consist of all natural ingredients. No harmful chemicals are added to their products, making your skin look healthy and smooth. 2. Start whitening your teeth early. The perfect smile can make all the difference at prom. It is important to start whitening you teeth at least two weeks before prom to achieve those pearly whites. Products like Crest White Strips work great and are easy to use. 3. Freeze your makeup: Once you apply you foundation and makeup on your eyes and cheek, stick your face in the freezer for about 20 seconds. Now you might be thinking “why on earth would I put my face in the freezer?” Your makeup will essentially “freeze” to your face, making it last longer then usual. 4. Clean up your brows: Some might get their brows done the day of or before prom but this is a bad idea. Some girls might have sensitive skin and will get red marks that take sometime to go away. About one week before prom will give you enough time to get them done and look great for the big night. 5. Finding the best hairstyle: Months before prom, schedule a “practice” session with you hairstylist. It might happen that the hairstyle you picked doesn’t look exactly the way you thought it would. Getting a practice run will give you an idea how your hair will turn out, saving you from a potential mistake. 6. Getting the perfect tan: While most people book multiple tanning bed sessions before prom, this can eventually damage you skin. Spray tans are a healthier option to get that perfect glowing skin for prom. Take some time to find the right spray tan for your skin like St. Tropez Bronzing Mist. 7. Hydrate your hair: Dry and damaged hair not only doesn’t look good but it can cause problems when styling your hair. Use a leave-in conditioner like this multi-tasking hair mist from Ouai . This will leave you hair super soft and hydrated without weighing it down. 8. Highlight your eyes OR your mouth: One of the biggest mistakes you can make is putting on too much makeup. Have a nice clean look by highlighting either your eyes or lips. If you focus on lips try a bright color like red or pink from fan-favorite Kylie Cosmetics. If you want to make your eyes pop instead, go all out with liner, shadow and mascara. Maybelline makes a variety of cost-friendly products to help get the right look for your eyes. 9. Use a good deodorant: This is especially important if you are going to be dancing the night away at prom. A product like Dove Advanced Care Beauty doesn’t leave white marks and it will keep you smelling fresh all night long! 10. Pick the right shoes: Having the right shoes is an important part of preparing for prom. Not only do you want shoes that look good but also feel good. You are going to be walking around a lot and dancing so you want shoes that aren’t going to hurt your feet. Master these TEN TIPS and you'll be ready to party the night away at Prom...and feel absolutely fresh 'n fabulous from head to toe! XO, Camille La Vie

The Jazz Age Called: Roaring 22's Prom Dresses
beaded prom dresses Prom Dress Style Guide

The Jazz Age Called: Roaring 22'...

When you hear the phrase “The Roaring 20’s," what comes to mind? Most likely jazz music, flapper dresses, and The Great Gatsby. It’s crazy to think this era of opulence occurred 100 years ago, but now here we are, two years into the 2020's. Whether your prom theme this year is the Roaring 20’s or you’d simply love to honor the era, we rounded up a bunch of glamorous styles that totally would suit this lavish time period – with a modern twist, of course. 1920’s style is known for being extra. Heavy beading and sequins were prominent in fashion, especially in a pattern form. When shopping for your 2022 prom dress, look for high shine in form-fitting silhouettes and, if you wish, a skin-baring neckline. Try a plunge, v-neck, or square style to show off your décolletage; women’s fashion in this time period was a bit more daring. Neutral colors were a signature as well; stick to simple shades like blush, champagne, silver, gold, or black. Want to take your look one step further? (Um, of course!) Go all out with a feather boa, chic feather headband or hairpiece, and pile on the pearls. For this prom look, there’s no holding back! Add a red lip and even pin your hair under to mimic the classic bob cut. Find a partner and a Charleston tutorial; the 20’s are back, baby. Discover even more 1920’s-inspired prom dresses in our prom dress collection! Shop all prom dresses here! Xo, Camille

Turn Heads in Any of These Brill...

Let's face it, red is always the talk of the town…and this season, we’re still feelin’ flushed by its roaring presence in fashion. Not to mention, it basically represents Valentine’s Day, so cliché rituals aside, wearing red for the holiday is actually trendy this year. While the hue pairs seamlessly with V-Day, you may shy away from it for other dressy occasions, like prom . But we’re here to tell you…go for it, girl! Red seems like the ultimate contradiction. Super classic, yet bold and controversial. Wouldn’t it be easier to slip on a sleek black or soothing blue hue and call it a night? Sure it would…but red is just too fun to ignore! In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re rounded up a few red prom dresses you simply can’t neglect. Give in to your crimson crush and prepare to make an entrance on your formal night out. Sound the siren in a magnificent off the shoulder mermaid dress with a shiny satin finish, or tap into your soft, feminine side with an airy tulle skirt and sparkly detailing. Further fuel the fire with a red clutch and red lips that match the tone of the dress. Not ready to go full-on red quite yet? Ease into it with a darker burgundy or wine prom dress boasting beads, glitter, or allover embroidery for the sweetest finish. As for lipcolor, pair with burgundy or nude to complement the gown’s deeper red shade. Is it love…or just a crush? Either way, we’re loving these long red dresses for PROM ’18!

Valentine's Day Ideas Whether You're Single or Coupled Up
Beauty Valentine's Day plans

Valentine's Day Ideas Whether Yo...

Cue the groans (or the cheers); it’s Valentine’s Day! Whatever your stance on the holiday, it’s a day to honor love, and that alone is worth celebrating. While the day historically seems to honor couples, more recently it evolved to friends (hellooo Galentine’s Day!) parents, and even pets. No plans yet? Scroll below for our celebration ideas whether you’re single, coupled up, or seeking a night with your girlfriends. Not a candlelit dinner in sight! With Your Bae Go for a hike. Whether it’s a popular trail that’s a short drive away or local park around the corner, spending time in nature is a scientific mood-booster. Make a day of it with your other half by packing a picnic lunch, exploring new trails, and enjoying fab views. Because it's outdoors, we recommend saving this activity for a weekend afternoon versus Valentine's night. Plus...did we mention its free? Order in. Stray from the typical pricy dinner out and opt instead for a chill night in! From pizza to tacos to Chinese food; the menu options are limitless. Then cue up a movie you’ve both been dying to see as you veg out on the couch. Romance at its finest. Skip right to the sweets. Rather than shell out big bucks for a fancy-schmancy feast, have a normal dinner at home and go out for dessert instead. Whether it’s a cool fondue place, crepes, or waffles and ice cream, the saying “save room for dessert” has never rang more true. With Your Girls Bake something yummy together. Cookies, cake, donuts, you name it! Better yet, each choose something and make it a friendly competition, having a neutral third party, like a sibling, be the judge. Regardless of who wins, you’ll all have plenty of goodies to share! Go bowling. Even if you’re horrible. Even if you haven’t bowled since your tenth birthday party. At the end of the day, it’ll make for a fun story with lots of laughs (and gutterballs!). Have a rom-com movie marathon. Complete with popcorn and make-your-own-sundaes! Have each of your besties pick their fave flick, then get together slumber party-style with pjs, pizza, and face masks. No boys allowed! With Yourself Take your dog for a nice long walk. Though you’re not technically by yourself, is there anything more chill than spending time with your fave furry friend? Make it a point to be mindful during your walk; avoid peeking at your phone and let your pooch spend some extra minutes sniffing around that tree before you tug him away. No dog? Offer to walk someone else’s; perhaps a neighbor’s or your bestie’s. Buy yourself something pretty. Flower and chocolate? Sure. That cute clutch you’ve forever had your eye on? Even better. Treat yo’ self to a little gift, because, why not? Now’s your chance. Have a spa night. Candles, soft music, and all! What better day for some tender loving care than Valentine’s Day? Take a bubble bath, paint your nails, cue up your fave show on Netflix, whatever relaxing ritual means self-care to you! Because sometimes, your own company is the best company. Still love a classic dinner out? We’ve got outfit options for days on CLV.com…or depending on your plans, check out a few of our fave short cocktail dresses. Happy Valentine’s Day! Xo, Camille

Attention Bridesmaids: You'll Want to Read These Do's and Don'ts
bridesmaid advice bridesmaid dress inspiration

Attention Bridesmaids: You'll Wa...

Weddings can be chaotic. Between timing, locations, money, emotions, people and many unsolicited opinions, the entire event is nothing short of a whirlwind. And that’s just the wedding day! Whether you’re a first time bridesmaid or a seasoned bridal party member, the entire process can feel overwhelming. Not to mention, navigating a group of girls you may hardly know is tough. So what’s the proper protocall as the bride’s lady-in-waiting? We’ve rounded up some major do’s and don’ts to follow for your role as a bridesmaid. Don’t: Say Yes if You Can’t Commit Assess whether you can commit to being a bridesmaid in the first place. If the time or cost is just too tight, don’t be afraid to gently decline; you can always offer to take on a smaller role in her wedding, such as a reading during the ceremony or a toast during the reception. Out of respect, have this conversation in person if possible - never over text. Do: Know Your Role Generally, you should follow the vibe of the bride. Keep track of specific dates, times, and activities where you’ll be involved in a calendar and don’t forget them! Know what you need to do for each, such as which costs to contribute for the bridal shower or the exact itinerary for the bachelorette party. And always offer help to whoever’s in charge (and if it’s you, don’t hesitate to ask!) A second set of hands is always appreciated. Don’t: Complain About Costs No one likes a Debbie downer, so unless the bride gets totally out of line (i.e. makes you pay an outrageous sum for hair and makeup or negatively comments on your appearance) avoid confrontations about money-or anything for that matter. If you must let off some pre-wedding steam, talk to someone outside of the bridal party, like your mom or a friend. Causing friction with the bride or bridesmaids is a total no-no. Don’t: Gossip Repeat after us: Do. Not. Gossip. Keep in mind during the entire wedding process, and remember as needed. Do: Give Honest Input Within reason, of course. Kindly suggesting a more local bachelorette versus jetting off to Ibiza? Up for grabs. Telling the bride she’s gained some weight and should rethink her dress? Not appropriate. Don’t: Make It About You Remember: it’s the bride’s day, not yours. Whether you’re single, engaged, married, or divorced, as a bridesmaid, you’re there to complement the special day-not control it. Remember that you’re there to celebrate her and her fiancée, so stay mum on any input that wasn’t warranted (“Are you sure you want your flowers to be that color?”) On the flip side, if you’re bombarded with wedding emails on the daily, it’s A-OK to shut off your phone and take a breather; wedding plans are one thing, your own life is another. Don’t neglect it! Do: Be There for the Bride From bridesmaid fittings to witnessing her I do’s, you should be there for her every step of the way. If she calls, pick up. If she’s stressed out, listen. If she wants to meet for coffee to break from wedding planning, make an effort to show up. Being there for her is the most basic thing you can do. Do: Have the Time of Your Life Bridesmaids come with many duties, and having a blast is one of them! The bride chose you to be a part of her special day for a reason, so mingle with guests and tear up the dance floor to celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs.! Love the bridesmaid dresses featured here?

Prep for Prom: Six Steps to Glowing Skin
Beauty ULTIMATE PROM GUIDE

Prep for Prom: Six Steps to Glow...

You might be wondering how you are going to get your skin to look perfect for prom. Don’t stress out! Getting your skin to look clean and glowing is actually a lot easier and cheaper than you think. Don’t go crazy trying to buy all of these products at top dollar to help cleanse your skin. By following these six simple steps you can have the glowing skin you've always dreamed of in no time! And with prom night getting close, you'll surely achieve those goals if you get started now. 1. Start with Steam. The steam from taking a hot shower can help open your pores so you can get all of the gunk out of your skin and let the good stuff in. 2. Drink up! Water is definitely your friend if you want beautiful glowing skin. Even just the slightest dehydration can cause your skin to look dull. Water can help give your skin a natural glow and helps eliminate the puffiness underneath your eyes. So make sure you drink lots of water weeks before prom so your skin is perfect for the big day. 3. Sleep, Sleep and more Sleep: Lack of sleep can be extremely detrimental for your skin. It can leave behind dark circles and bags, which is definitely not what you want on prom night. While you sleep, your skin is being restored and renewed from the day’s wear and tear. It can help improve the texture of you skin and give it that supple, gorgeous glow. Make sure you develop an appropriate sleeping schedule (at least 8 hours of sleep a night) before prom. 4. Green Tea: Drinking a cup of tea every night a couple of weeks before prom is a cheap and easy way to get glowing skin. The antioxidants in green tea help to flush out toxins and keep your body hydrated. 5. Don’t forget to exfoliate! Make sure you exfoliate once or twice a week for a couple of weeks before prom. Your body is shedding skin cells all the time so it is important to get rid of dead skin or else it will end up looking dull and dry. Use products like Clean & Clear Advantage 3-1 Exfoliating cleanser for your face and Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash to help give your skin a glowing look. 6. Give Your Skin Oxygen: Spend some time every day doing some exercises to help improve your skin. The increased oxygen supply to your blood stream during exercise helps improve your complexion and gives you an instant glow. So dish the thought of having to buy high-end, expensive skin products to get that glow. All it takes is some natural healing and detoxifying methods in a set routine and a couple trusty skincare items at a fraction of the cost of those luxury brands and you're good to go! .

Your Holiday Hair Inspiration is...

Your clutch is packed, presents are poised for unwrapping, and your holiday dress is hanging patiently in the closet, but your hair? That’s a separate issue. While you could always go for the classic curls or straightened strands for this year’s party, it might be fun to experiment. Venture away from your tried-and-true style with an easy update like a glam high bun or deep side part. Ready to try a new ‘do? Whether you’re headed to a restaurant feast, NYE party, or annual gathering at Aunt Linda’s house, cap off your party dress with a super sleek hairstyle. Scroll below to get ultra-inspired. Got 5 minutes? Then you’ve got time for this simple, yet chic ‘do! Tie a gold ribbon around a low ponytail, then tease the back for some volume. So pretty, so festive, so done. Move over Elsa; there’s a new princess in town! Loosely curl random strands around the crown of your head for a tousled, romantic look, then braid it up in honor of your favorite Frozen lady. “Let it goooo…” Well, hello, Old Hollywood glam! Use a comb to create a deep side part on one side of your head, then grab your curling iron to create soft barrel curls. No Oscar nom necessary. Wondering how to tame your uber-curly tresses? No need; apply your fave styling cream and just let your natural texture flow! Use a pretty hair clip to pin back any locks that fall in your face. Second day hair, who dis? This high bun fares well on a day when you’re in-between washes. Spritz hair with texturizing spray to give it a lived-in look, then roll into a bun on top of your head. Leave a few stray pieces out in front, then loosely curl for a fancy finish. For a polished finish to any look, straighten your strands, then pull back into a half up-do and fasten with a fancy barette to complete your #ootn. Who said holiday hair had to be complicated? Bombshell hair, right this way! Great if your tresses are naturally wavy, spriz in texturizing spray, then pull hair back and poof it up at the crown to add volume. Fulfill your inner flower child with this boho-glam style! Starting at the crown, French braid each side, leaving the bottom half of hair loose. Fasten the braids together with a festive pin, then curl remaining hair. Next year’s prom look, perhaps? Now let's shift from festive tresses to dresses; pull your whole look together and shop all holiday dresses! Xo Camille

Wedding Guest Dresses for 5 Different Venues

Wedding Guest Dresses for 5 Diff...

Spring and summer wedding season is just around the corner. And chances are, you’ve RSVP’d “yes” to at least one wedding in the coming months. Call it the social media effect, but these days, brides have gotten more and more creative with their wedding receptions, especially in warmer months. City? Rustic? Coastal? Nothing is off limits. If you’ve perused your closet and can’t find a single thing to wear, allow us to intervene; we pulled wedding guest dresses for 5 common, yet gorgeous, venue types. Where to? Somewhere chic. Ballroom Shop: Satin Halter Dress Strapless Fit and Flare Mikado Ballgown Time to turn up the fancy. A ballroom venue may call for a black tie dress code, and is definitely not the time for anything remotely casual. Dress to the nines in a regal satin or Mikado number. Whether it’s a ballgown, leg-baring A-line, or chic fit and flare, your look is sure to turn heads on the dance floor – and beyond. Beach Shop: Criss Cross Halter Glitter Lace Dress Scuba Lace Dress Sun, sand, and sea; a beach wedding is exposed to all of the elements. Fabric and silhouette are key players here; choose a fit and flare wedding guest dress in a light fabric like scuba or crepe to stay cool. Avoid anything too tight or heavy (i.e. satin, brocade, or Mikado) so you can soak up the sun with confidence. As for shoes, opt for a dressy sandal for the easiest transition from sand to reception. Garden Shop: Floral Fit and Flare Floral Embroidered Dress Floral High Low Dress There’s no denying the elegance of a garden wedding. Complement this beautiful outdoor setting with – you guessed it – a pretty floral print dress. Check out our fresh picks here, and depending on the dress code, go for a short fit and flare, midi-length high-low, or long evening dress for a more formal environment. You grow, girl. Rooftop Shop: Satin Halter Dress Crepe Illusion Midi Halter Pleated Party Dress Twinkling lights, a bustling crowd below, and of course, a dazzling cityscape; a rooftop venue offers a truly unique appeal. Keep your look as sleek and sophisticated as the trendy setting; look for a slim-fitting style that shows off your curves or a shimmering party dress with an eye-catching open back. Vineyard Shop: Lace High Low Dress 3-D Petal Dress V-Neck Chiffon Dress Complement the rustic, rolling hills of a vineyard wedding with a dress that isn’t too flashy, in style or color. A soft pink, blue or even fuchsia hue won’t clash with the backdrop, making for beautiful photos in your look (because trust, you’ll be snapping more than a few). Opt for an easy-breezy silhouette that’s easy to maneuver on uneven terrain. And repeat after us: block heels, block heels, block heels! From destination to local, discover more wedding guest dresses for any venue in our chic collection! Shop now! Xo, Camille

What to Wear for 4 Popular Prom ...

Getting dressed to the nines is one of the best parts of prom; but if your formal night has a specific theme, it can seem a little bit challenging. What type of prom dress do you look for? Does the fabric matter? Silhouette? Well the good news is that a prom theme can actually help you narrow down the endless options to a smaller selection of styles. Whether you have a prom theme this year or are drawn to a certain look, check out our style guide to 4 popular themes below. Carnival Shop: Beaded Mermaid Dress Sequin Chevron Dress Mikado Ballgown Off the Shoulder Dress Appliqué Chiffon Dress Bright and boisterous, a carnival theme is as fun as it gets! Let your prom dress follow the same formula; think bold colors with shiny accents. Beading, sequins, rhinestones, applique; the more embellishments, the merrier! And whether it’s ballgown, fitted, A-line, or mermaid, any silhouette suits this whimsical theme. Under the Sea Shop: Sequin Lace Up Dress Two Tone Metallic Dress Sequin Slip Dress Strapless Glitter Ballgown Two Piece Shimmer Dress We’re definitely blue about this theme (in the best way possible!) All hues of the classic color work; think turquoise, teal, royal, even mint, in form-fitting silhouettes that show off your curves. For the finishing touch, look out for fabrics that glisten like the ocean; try glitter, sequin or metallic. :: Plays Under the Sea on repeat:: Enchanted Shop: Off the Shoulder Ballgown Lace Sweetheart Ballgown Glitter Mermaid Dress Sequin Ballgown Glitter Mesh Dress The epitome of an enchanted prom theme? Romantic, flowing silhouettes in soft shades like light pink, blue, and ivory. When shopping, keep an eye out for delicate, feminine patterns, especially floral prints.

Spring Silhouettes: Evening Dresses for Your Next RSVP
Formal Dress Styles long evening dresses

Spring Silhouettes: Evening Dres...

When shopping for an evening dress, there’s a few factors that determine the look you choose, depending on your personal style. The color. A lot (or a few) embellishments. The neckline. But what about the silhouette? The shape of a dress can dramatically enhance your appearance for a flattering finish. When you keep your body type in mind and what you’d like to highlight, it can make all the difference in how you feel inside and out! Scroll below for 4 of the most popular evening dress silhouettes and how to navigate between each. Ballgown Shop: Off the Shoulder Placement Embroidered Tulle Ballgown A full skirt not only adds drama to your look, but puts more attention on your upper half; specifically your arms and shoulders with this enchanting look. If your style falls more into the “girlie girl” category, then a ballgown evening dress is perfect for you, whether it’s for prom, a gala, or fancy wedding. Column Shop: Floral Embroidered Dress with Cap Sleeves If a ballgown brings the drama, a column silhouette is just the opposite: fitted to the body without any additional flair. But don’t let the minimal silhouette fool you; a tighter fit gives curves the limelight, great for highlighting an hourglass shape. This floral embroidered evening dress is elegant, yet demure, gorgeous for that spring wedding on your calendar. A-Line Shop: Metallic Knit Lace Up Back Dress In between a ballgown and fitted look, an A-line evening dress is a classic choice that works for any formal event. This style is universally flattering on all body types, and puts the waist and upper body on display. Level up with a leg slit to elevate the flirt factor, like this on metallic lace-up dress. Mermaid Shop: Tank Illusion Plunge Mermaid Horsehair Dress Chances are you’re familiar with a mermaid dress, which draws in at the knees similar to a mermaid’s tail. Whether you’re looking to enhance or create an hourglass shape, this look is your fashion ticket. Own any evening in this beautiful plunging style and let the compliments roll (because trust, they will). Find even more fitted and flowy silhouettes by browsing the long evening dress collection here! Xo, Camille

What to Wear to a Black Tie Wedding

What to Wear to a Black Tie Wedding

When it comes to different dress codes, black tie is likely the one you’ve heard again and again. Maybe it was for last year’s prom night, maybe your cousin’s upcoming wedding. You know it calls for fancy attire in an evening setting, but what exactly makes a dress fall into black tie territory? What type of style should you look for while shopping? With the most popular wedding season now in full swing (hello, fall!) coupled with the cooling temperatures, a long evening dress is typically the default for a black tie event this time of year. Landed an invite with this common dress code? Lucky you; follow our tips below to shop for your style stress-free. Shop: Ombre Sequin Dress Glitter Jersey Dress Sequin Glitter Dress Brocade Mermaid Dress Mesh Godet Dress Does a black tie dress have to be long? Nope! A fancy cocktail dress with lots of lace, beading, and other embellishments is fine, but like we said, a long evening dress can be more comfortable in fall and winter. Shop some of our black tie dress picks here, or find more in our long evening dress collection. What about the dress silhouette? Everything from ballgowns to simple column styles work, but no need to go super grand for a wedding invite (you definitely don’t want to out-do the bride!) Form-fitting shapes like trumpet, mermaid, and column are appropriate and also highlight your frame. Shop: Knit Cleo Dress Floral Sequin Dress Long Sleeve Sequin Dress Plunge Metallic Dress Satin Slip Dress How about dress color? For a black tie wedding, always respect the bride and avoid white, ivory, and other similar light tones. A rule of thumb: if you even think it’s too light, it probably is; but no worries, there’s plenty of other chic shades to choose from! For fall and winter, stick to neutrals like black, navy, or gold, or have fun with rich tones like emerald, wine, or gunmetal. And of course, black is always a classic option as well. Let’s talk embellishments Go all out with head to toe sequins, glitter detailing, heavy beading, and luxe textures like satin, Mikado, and brocade. Whether you prefer to keep it simple or unleash your inner glamazon, there’s a dress for you. Now get shopping! Xo, Camille

Follow her lead and capture the essence of Portofino by selecting a style with few or no embellishments, and also doesn’t compete with the shades of the Riviera. Stick to wine, red, gold, or green in sleek fitted silhouettes. Or, if you’re feeling especially fancy (say, for a gala!) slip into a floral ball gown that’s basically its own work of art. Oh, Paris. For the City of Light, Stephanie wore a pink high low dress adorned with elegant beading. The subtle embellishments against the silky Mikado texture feel tres chic for a picture-perfect day in Paris.

Style Guide: Satin Homecoming Dresses
Homecoming Dress Styles homecoming dresses

Style Guide: Satin Homecoming Dr...

As we move through September, it’s only natural to look to the latest trends when shopping for your homecoming dress. And while fall has quite a few (Glitter! Leopard print!) today’s focus is primarily on satin. Especially popular in the ever-extra 80’s, satin has stuck around since last season, and is more popular than ever, if we do say so ourselves. Ready for a smooth style transition from summer to fall? Our crash-course in satin is right here. What is satin? Satin is a weave fabric with a shiny finish. Due to its thickness and rich texture, satin is best worn in cooler temperatures, making it the perfect look to sport at homecoming or a fall wedding! Why is it so popular? It’s no secret that 80’s fashion was over-the-top. So it makes sense that satin was one of the many trends that dominated the era. And since everything old is new again, 80’s style has come full circle, along with puff sleeves and pops of neon. Honor the decade at homecoming or your next special event with the slightly more subtle satin. The Camille La Vie collection has plenty of chic styles to get you started. How to style it? Choose from pretty detailing like lace and appliqué, or opt for a simple satin dress without embellishments. And just because it’s shiny, don’t shy away from jewelry! In fact, due to its regal finish, satin looks even better with extra glitz. Add texture with chunky jewels or keep it on the minimal side with delicate gold or silver earrings, rings, or a bracelet. After all, it is an 80’s trend, so more is more. Shop more satin homecoming dresses on CLV.com! Shop main banner: Satin Dress with Pockets Rose Appliqué Dress Lace Tiered Dress
