Headies Award: A Clash Of Street Style And Perfect Red Carpet Looks
There are so many ways to express your feelings and personality. This could be from your speech or actions. However, one important way is through your fashion. Your fashion reflects your personality, in the same light, it reflects your society.
Dressing a certain way identifies your social standing. It shows the way you perceive yourself and creates certain expectations regarding your behavior and personality. Whatever your style, dressing to impress or simply wearing something comfortable, your choice of clothes reflects the “you” that faces the world.
Often, because of these factors, most people find it difficult to separate themselves from their choice of fashion at specific periods.
This can be noted in the just concluded Headies Award, where most people mixed street fashion with Red Carpet looks. It is worthy to note that the required fashion choices for a red carpet differ from street fashion.
However, in the just concluded Headies Award, it is evident that most artistes are not aware of this. So many artistes, especially male artistes showed up in clothes meant for street fashion.
Street Fashion is exactly what it means. It is fashion that has developed from the streets and not from runway shows or designers. It really has its grassroots in the youth culture of the recent decades. Street fashion, unlike other fashions, does not cover just one style of dressing, but it encompasses a whole range of styles. All these styles are unique and were created by the youth who loved this style of dressing. Street fashion is often about comfortability.
Red carpet fashion refers to the outfits worn on the red carpet at high profile gala celebrity events such as award ceremonies and film premieres. It receives scrutiny from the media and many people at large because of the statement it makes. The red carpet is often used in reference to the privileged treatment of a distinguished visitor, on a red carpet, you are special, hence, dress like you are a distinguished visitor.
The just-concluded Headies Award shows most artistes find it difficult to separate street fashion from the Red Carpet look; a conversation that has generated lots of back and forth on social media.
