Dragons on the Red Carpet

I’m looking forward to adding more material to the dragons in fashion category here on this blog as and when.

While I don’t have a huge wardrobe at home, I’ve always enjoyed artistry in fashion design. It’s always a visual treat to spot dragon designs on the red carpet!

Most of the designs I’ve seen have a powerful/fierce energy where the celebrity looks happy to don the outfit.

In this post, I’ve collected some pictures of Taylor Swift, J.Lo, Fan Bingbing, and other stars in their dragon couture.

P.S. Most of the images here are courtesy of the amazing Getty Images.

Jennifer Lopez in Dragon Dress

Here’s J.Lo in an Atelier Versace gown at the 2015 Met Gala. I love the colors, matching hues of the makeup, and how the design twists around her curves. Some blog posts suggested that she should’ve worn her hair up, but I don’t mind this look at all.

MJ had tons of tailored and memorable jackets. Michael Bush was his wardrobe designer and dresser for 25 years.

Gucci Baby Dragon – Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018/19

I remember this when it first came out as it was unusual to see on a runway. Extra heads were also sent down the runway in the same show.
