Inspiration Board: DC Gala

I'm attending my first black tie gala in DC this week and have been checking out red carpet looks for styling inspiration! DC is a bit more conservative than other places and its my company's event, so I couldn't go with my usual formfitting, backless gown but I still refused to wear black! I decided to create an inspiration board of some of my favorite celeb looks and a dream look for myself if I wasn't on a strict budget! The J. Crew gown is so killer - flattering and ethereal! Paired with some bold earrings and a cropped tux jacket to fend off the autumn chill and I'd feel like a star myself!

I have recently joined TTD group and i came to know about the Black tie gala, and DC is little conservative but i like to call them Vibrant Conservatives! there is a great mix of some very bright and flashy colors too.. what do you feel?
