On November 30, Harper’s Bazaar Star Awards 2022 – a party to honor outstanding individuals and brands in Vietnam will officially take place.
Decoding the dress code of the harper’s bazaar star awards party 2022
Harper’s Bazaar Star Awards 2022 is a prestigious awards event organized by the fashion and lifestyle magazine Harper’s Bazaar. This year, the party returns to honor individuals and brands that have made important contributions to the fashion and luxury lifestyle industries in Vietnam over the past year.
The dress code of Harper’s Bazaar Star Awards 2022 is a black tie inspired by masquerade. While inspiration from royal fashion (regencycore) is still a big trend of Fall and Winter 2022, the party closely follows the world’s major fashion trends. So, what is the meaning of this dress code, and how to dress appropriately?
A masquerade ball was a party combining eating, dancing, and other court entertainment that originated in Italy during the Renaissance. After that, prom quickly became a trend throughout Europe (France, Sweden, Switzerland, England, …).
“Masquerade” in English, or “master” in Italian, both mean disguise. At the masquerade ball, the elite has to disguise themselves by wearing masks so that others do not recognize them.
The European elite and aristocrats were always looking for luxury pleasures and entertainment. Masquerade Ball creates a satisfying playground for the elite. This is a place where no one has to worry about being judged because everyone wears a mysterious mask. And of course, create the opportunity to dress up in the most splendid way.
Since the masquerade ball was a popular party in the European court, ancient court costumes with masks were the costumes associated with this type of ball.
Women in ancient times often wore skirts with a tight upper body, tight waist, and breast enhancement. The lower body has many layers of petticoat or has a support frame that inflates the skirt. Large, loose petticoats are used for special occasions.
During the 18th century, the Watteau dress, also known as Robe à la Française, was popular, with a cape-like back bodice connecting directly to the front. The square neck, and deep cut help to flatter the bust. All are generously decorated with lots of lace, bows, and flowers. Even more compact is Robe à l’Anglais, without petticoats, often with a longer back skirt and lace around the neck.
Women can style themselves with opera gloves, fur hats, fans…
Men’s clothing depends on the fashion of the court at that time. However, a standard outfit usually includes a jacket, vest, and breeches.
The vest is decorated with embroideries, and the collar is lined with jabot lace. Breeches usually stop at the knee, with white socks underneath and large square heels. Jackets are worn on cold occasions and are also made of jacquard or wool.
Men can also dress up with wigs, bow ties, and pocket towels…
Inspired by Masquerade Ball, Harper’s Bazaar Star Awards 2022 applies a black tie dress code towards prom style. However, we do not force guests to wear bulky, thick outfits. Mainly, we want to promote the joyful spirit of the gala and invite you to join this joyful atmosphere.
According to the dress code black tie, women need to wear long skirts and men need to wear suits. Many people mistakenly think that the dress code black tie requires wearing black clothes, but it actually only means formal attire.
Instead of wearing a mask in the traditional way, using mask-shaped accessories such as earrings or chest brooches is a new idea. Or wearing masks with mask motifs is also a suggestion. You can even use large sunglasses to replace the traditional mask as Kendall Jenner did.
There is no limit to the outfits on this special night. As a party to honor dedication to high fashion and lifestyle, creativity is what Harper’s Bazaar Star Awards is all about.
