Glamorous Evening Dresses Should Be Ball Gowns Styles

It is elegant, feminine and glamorous, reminiscent of the dresses of princesses depicted in fairy tales. It is basically floor-length and usually has a wide-cut, swinging skirt. A fantasy ball gown is always something special. A hoop skirt worn underneath the dress can further enhance this effect. Sometimes the back skirt is lengthened by a train. To avoid stepping on the skirt while dancing, most dresses have a loop that can be placed around the wrist.


Ball gowns are always made of fine fabrics, such as chiffon, damask, brocade, velvet, silk, taffeta, satin, tulle or lace. They are usually decorated with elaborate details such as embroidery, beads, sequins, rhinestones or imaginative applications. In addition, as they are often tailor made, they are accordingly expensive.

It does not have to be the Vienna Opera Ball, but nevertheless a ball gown is worn only for very exclusive dance events. Unlike evening dresses in general, they are worn only when dancing is the focus.


The first dress of this kind is often used in the balls of dance schools or at the graduation ball. Otherwise, wedding receptions are often a great opportunity to dress in a beautiful ball gown, especially as a maid of honor or close friend and relatives of the bride and groom.

When in the Middle Ages the first ladies began to wear a ball gown on special occasions, this was granted only to noble women. Because the noble fabrics and luxurious details of the hand-made clothes made it even more expensive pleasure than they are today. Apart from that, the citizens and peasant women from the infantry did not have time to attend such events as they were busy with the house, the farm and the children. This fact is also discussed in fairy tales such as Cinderella.

Even in the Middle Ages and the early modern period, This kind of amazing evening dress were already designed for exclusive occasions such as dance balls and weddings. But at the time people had a different, much slower sense of time than today. That is, a ball gown not only lasted a lifetime, but was inherited from mother to daughter and from grandmother to granddaughter for generations. The early dances were not so hilarious and danced quickly as in modern times, but danced gracefully. This was particularly elegant in the wide hoop skirts. The noble treat with simultaneous freedom from dancing has remained the clothes until today.

Flabby skin. What can you do to get the skin elastic and tight again?

A flabby or weakened skin. What are the causes and what can you do about it?

Over the years, our skin becomes softer and less elastic. It is an aging process that we can not escape. In addition, there are special circumstances, such as losing weight or stretching the skin of the abdomen during a short period of time, which can make the skin relax even more.

The weakening of the skin is a normal and natural process. Over the years, our skin becomes slacker and loses elasticity. This applies to the facial skin but also to the skin of the body. The weakening of the skin is an inevitable process caused by the degradation of the collagen fibers over time (an important part of the connective tissue of our skin, see it as a kind of glue that holds the tissue together).

Both men and women are nowadays increasingly aware of the tightening of the skin and the cosmetic houses play on it. In the closets of the pharmacies, the racks of perfumeries and the shelves of supermarkets we find many products that promise us to restore the elasticity of the slack skin. According to dermatologists, especially active substances such as Boswellia acid (boswellic acid) and products based on collagen would improve the firmness of the skin.

In addition to specific skin firming creams that will have to be massaged daily and for longer periods in the skin, there are also other, more radical techniques for treating skin relaxation.

Laser can offer a solution when skin starts to sag. It is important that you do this with a knowledgeable and well-equipped doctor. There are different laser techniques and the doctor will need the right laser equipment. In case of skin relaxation, the laser will penetrate deep enough into the skin. Heat recovery stimulates the recovery and production of collagen.

Furthermore, skin relaxation is controlled by injecting polylactic acid deep into the skin. In short, the acid triggers a reaction whereby new collagen tissue is formed which leads to a strengthening of the skin. The injected polylactic acid is broken down by the body over time.

As always, in the case of skin relaxation, prevention is better than cure. No skincare escapes anyone because it belongs to aging but a healthy diet and adequate protection of the skin against the sun can slow down the process. Therefore, make sure you eat varied. Your daily diet should contain enough carbohydrates, proteins, fats and water. And limit the intake of sugar as much as possible because sugar is known to break down collagen (also look for hidden sugars, read the ingredients on the packs in the supermarket, but assume that everything that ends on -ose sugar is). Make it a good habit to always protect your skin with an anti-sun cream (even in winter).

Most recently, Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, along with Caroline de Maigret, Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams, advertised the new “Gabrielle” bag, which, like the “Gabrielle Chanel” parade, pays homage to fashion label founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

But not only in front of the camera makes the Aktrice, which is mainly known for their presentation in the “Twilight” series and in films such as “Clouds of Sils Maria” and “Café Society”, talked about: Celebrated at the Sundance Film Festival her short film “Come Swim” premiere, where she first served as a director and was seen as part of the special screenings at the Cannes Film Festival.

The most important handbag trends of the year

The runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York have shown that many old acquaintances made it into the pocket trends of 2018.
