A big no for out of style gear

WE girls love things. And it's always fun to watch and admire celebrities gliding down the red carpet in their glittering gowns and fitted tuxedos.

WE girls love things. And it's always fun to watch and admire celebrities gliding down the red carpet in their glittering gowns and fitted tuxedos.

But its sad to see your favourite celeb drowning in a fashion Tsunami.

Who could forget popular former YFM DJ Sbu in his orange Niknaks outfit? We are still haunted by the spaceship-inspired blue dress former Miss SA Tansey Coetzee wore at the Samas two years ago.

So to avoid the same mistake this year, we asked our fashion expert how to get the Yellow Carpet right this weekend.

Men's designer Ole of House of Ole says women are not the only ones who suffer from wardrobe malfunction. He says a man should always get a tailored suit.

The GQ award-winning designer says a man should not look as if he borrowed his suit from his grandfather.

"A well-fitted suit tells something about a man. It says you take control of what you wear," Ole says.

Playing with dark colours such as ink blue, black and navy in a tuxedo is always wise. Ole says white shoes and bright coloured suits are a big no. Ole, who will be dressing Tumi and the Volume at the Samas, also says the baggy and too skinny look on the big event is bad.

Designer David Tlale says preparing for big events is important. He says you must look as if you made an effort.

Stars should not copy what was worn at the Oscars but take inspiration from that.

He says the old couture is back, with long gowns a must-have. This year the trend is boldness and drama . But too short and quickly made dresses are a big no.
