Get Inspired By…Black Tie Glam!


Hey designers! We’re back with some more fashionspiration. This time: a great look for Black Tie Glam!


If you want to put together an outfit that’s sophisticated enough for a black tie event (that means an occasion where everyone is expected to dress up, like an awards show or a wedding) but still fun and NOT boring, then we recommend looking for inspiration from your favorite celebrities. They go to so many black tie events, they’re experts!


This time, we’re looking to the smart, beautiful and fashion-savvy Emma Watson (the Harry Potter series, The Perks of Being a Wallflower). Emma knows how to rock the perfect little black dress, as you can see:

We gave her fun yet classy dress a go with our Zoey’s Design Academy model, and voila!



The Bustle T Dress is perfect for this look! And because Emma rarely uses lots of accessories, we went with a Beaded Clutch for added pizzazz. What do you think?


Who do you look to for fashionspiration? What’s your favorite look to create at the Academy? Share in the comments!

      for black, go to the ‘winter’ section of the colors and go to the color at the far left, bottom. it’s very close to black, and I use it for zebra stripes. please make red lips, ZDA! and jet-black. red lips and pure, dark, black. thanks! >~pop~<
