Red Carpet looks inspired by the Oscars

With the end of the spring term in sight, many students are choosing to focus on the sudden fear of impending exams and the ginormous amount of coursework that is still yet to be started. We at Her Campus UEA choose instead to focus on the end of term celebrations that awaits us. Most university courses at UEA celebrate the end of the academic year before Easter with a black-tie ball (a very formal social).

Since a large percentage of student life is spent in slippers and sweatpants, the thought of an occasion where you can don your most glamorous dress is as exciting as it is daunting. The questions are endless: Long dress or short dress? Heels or flats? Hair up or hair down? The list simply goes on.

Seeing as the biggest vice of red carpet fashion porn was aired this week at the 87th Academy Awards, why not get a bit of style inspiration from some real style icons on the red carpet? We are not suggesting that you blow your student loan on a Valentino ball gown and a pair of Louboutins, but hopefully these timeless red carpet looks can inspire you to take a break from revision and to get planning on some glamorous attire fit for a ball.

Procrastination is perfect for online shopping and browsing, especially when there is a formal occasion in mind.
