Last week I saw this video of Grammy nominee Britt Nicole discussing her stage costumes for her tour and was pleased to hear that she is fully embracing princess-ness with a gold tutu skirt:
“I do feel like I have to be comfortable on stage because I’m moving a lot, I’m dancing…so I have to have something that I can move in,” Britt explained. “When I’m trying on clothes for a tour coming up, I’m in the dressing room posing, dancing, holding my mic. I’m like, ‘Okay, how do I feel in this? Can I lift my arms? What all can I do?’ The last thing I bought for the most recent tour I was one is this really big tutu skirt. It goes out really far and has this gold top. I wear it with gold Converse. It’s this kind of prissy, really fun pop look and then the Converse make it more fun, more edgy.”
Scarlett Johansson has also been wearing the same gold-and-tulle style at the MET gala and looks super-pretty in this long ebellished gown by Dolce & Gabbana. If you can’t stretch to a designer price-tag to recreate the look, here’s an idea to create your own tulle dress using one of my new range of custom-made tulle skirts – coming soon to www.TutusWingsandPrettyThings.com – combined with a sparkly gold top from La Redoute.
If you can’t wait for the new range of fashion skirts to be launched at Tutus, Wings and Pretty Things, please get in touch for a personalised quote for a handmade tulle skirt firstname.lastname@example.org which can be made to your size, length, fabric and colour requirements – you can even decide how many layers you want! 😀
