Prom is a big event for every young girl—an occasion when you can dress your best and have fun. The outfit you choose for it will be immortalized through photographs taken on the day. Therefore, you must find a dress that helps you look your best. It should also be comfortable, since you will be wearing the dress for several hours and even dancing in it.
Here is a round-up of the hottest prom dress trends for 2018 from the fashion enthusiasts at Best for Bride in Canada to inspire your choice.
Fringe dresses provide the carefree, glitzy, glamorous fashion statement that made this style all the rage among flappers during the 1920’s. All eyes will be drawn to you as the fringe shimmies and sways when you enter a room or step upon the dance floor. Mac Duggal has brought up to date styling to the fringe dress, giving them a modern look and feel. View more fringe dresses
Ball Gown Prom Dresses
The perfect evening gown for that grand entrance of your dreams is a romantic ball gown prom dress. It fulfills the dream of walking into a room and feeling like a princess. And when twirling across the dance floor you will feel like teen royalty. Prom dresses with a ball gown look and feel are surging in popularity this season. In particular, soft hue colors like rose gold and powder blue are on trend this year, to the point where these colors have become equal in popularity to red and black dresses. For a bold look in the red spectrum, burgundy prom dresses are in vogue this year.
Shine in Gold
Bring on the bling in a gown embellished with golden sequins or brocade. Metallics are very fashionable, and gold is the hottest choice this year. This universally flattering metallic hue works on all complexions and is just perfect to steal the spotlight. It is also a versatile choice that works well with any hairstyle and makeup. You hardly need any accessories to complete your prom day look, when your dress is opulent with golden details. So make a majestic appearance in a gold dress and you will certainly be noticed.
Dresses with Dramatic Backs
Show skin without being flashy in a dress with dramatic back details. This is a great option to show-off your sense of style in a sophisticated way. You can make your pick from illusion designs embellished with lace appliques and crystal embroidery, sheer overlays, pretty keyhole cut-outs and low-cut open backs. Keyhole backs and illusion details offer beautiful coverage, while low-cut and open backs are revealing and bold. Don’t forget to choose a suitable hairstyle that highlights the back of your dress and doesn’t distract from its statement features.
Lace Details and Accents
If you love elegant and classy styles, lace is the way to go. All-over lace dresses are eternally romantic with timeless allure. Look for playful colors like bright red or blue for a modern twist on the classic. You can even go gothic with black lace. Or include lace in your outfit as an accent, by choosing a dress with lace sleeves. For a contemporary look, pick sexy silhouettes like the mermaid or sheath in lace. When wearing lace, choose your accessories with care or you can end up with a cluttered look.
Don’t hide your beautiful, slender legs beneath yards of fabric. Show them off in a splendid high-low hemline dress. This style of a short hemline in the front that grows to floor-length at the back is very youthful and chic. Pay attention to your choice of footwear, since it will be visible beneath the short skirt in the front. Contrast colored footwear will stand out and make a statement, when paired with a dressy high-low gown that cascades and flows in the background.

Spaghetti straps and slightly wider straps on the shoulders and crossing over the bodice or back are fashionable now. This vintage-inspired trend has a 90’s vibe, and looks best in solid color dresses. Dresses with sheer panels and cut-outs along sides and neckline also feature slender straps that structure the dress and hold it in place. This is a dramatic look to explore if you don’t mind showing off some skin. For an effortless and stylish look, keep your accessories minimum and choose a tousled and natural looking hairstyle.
Black and White
The black and white combination is a welcome update to the all-black gothic look, and one you can easily personalize. This classic combination of two neutrals is impressive for its simplicity and elegance. Take your cue from the monochrome look sported by Michelle Williams on the Oscar Red carpet, and choose a black and white dress with a plunging neckline for added impact. On the other hand, go with patterns in these two colors for a fun and flirty look. Complete your black and white outfit with a pair of brightly colored heels or sandals for a pop of color.
Incredibly versatile, two-pieces are the way to go if you love unique and customized looks. It allows you to mix and match colors and textures to make your own fashion statement. With the right style of top and skirt, you can create any silhouette whether it is a mermaid, sheath, fit and flare or A-line. You can also pick different colors for the top and bottom. The latest trend is to pair a crop top with a skirt, so you have a separate bodice and skirt that comes together while showing off a bit of skin. Two-piece dresses are also a practical option if you are on a tight budget, since there will be several options that work within your given budget.

Sep. 25, 2017
This week a Mac Duggal photo shoot was front and center of Lifetime’s “Growing Up Super Model”. Mac Duggal himself appeared on the show, first at a meet and greet where aspiring models lined up to meet him and hoped to be selected for the photo shoot. It’s worth noting that these weren’t just any aspiring models. The models anxiously hoping to be selected included Steven Segal and Kelly LeBrock’s daughter Arrisa Le Brock, boxer Oscar De La Hoya’s daughter Atiana de la Hoya, their supermodel mothers and many more big names.
Many of the beautiful aspiring models were plus size, diverse in look and body shape and, even with their famous lineages, spoke about the years of difficulties they’d had to break into the fashion industry. But Mac Duggal didn’t skip a beat, knowing talent and beauty when he sees it, and offered to give these beauties work and exposure.
The girls spoke to the camera about what a big break into the fashion industry Mac Duggal was giving them. They were honored and thrilled to be a part of Mac Duggal’s international gown empire and to work with one of the biggest designers on the planet. The girls also spoke about how his decision to work with them could be career changing and they were all thrilled to model his gowns and continue to work with him in the future. It was an uplifting and positive experience for Mac Duggal and all of the models involved.
Growing Up Supermodel is a Lifetime reality series that follows the drama of making it in the modeling world for seven celebrity kids: Arissa Le Brock (daughter of supermodel/actress Kelly LeBrock and actor Steven Seagal), Cambrie and Faith Schroder (daughters of Ricky Schroder), Atiana De La Hoya (daughter of actress/model Shanna Moakler and boxer Oscar De La Hoya), Cairo Peele (daughter of supermodel Beverly Peele), Jake Moritt (son of actress Krista Allen) and Janis Ostojic (son of model JD Ostojic).

It’s no surprise that it was a sold out, packed house during NYFW for Mac Duggal’s spring 2017 collection, 1,500 attendees to be exact. Everyone wants an invite to Mac’s runway during fashion week. His gorgeous and elegant dresses are second to none. Mac is a trendsetter, and has not only set the trend in fashion, but with various sized models, too. The true beauty of it, is that Mac Duggal incorporates regular and plus size models on his runway, which sends a message to millions within the world, that it is okay to love your body, no matter your body type or size, and that you’re still beautiful regardless. The positivity of this, is much needed in today’s society, due to the amount of body shaming that women endure on a daily basis. To see this showcased on the runway, during NYFW, is priceless, and is something that should become the fashion world’s new normal.
Mac is definitely not new to this. He has dressed some of Hollywood’s finest. Walking the biggest fashion stage in the world, alongside professional models was Arissa Le Brock, who is the star of the reality series, “Growing Up Supermodel” on Lifetime. Le Brock’s mother Kelly Le Brock, was also in attendance to show her support of her beautiful daughter, and boy did Arissa look stunning. To capture the essence and true beauty of Mac Duggal’s designs, you would have to be in attendance to see his work in person, and trust us when we say, you would be in awe too. Mac Duggal’s work has always been jaw dropping beautiful.
Additional reality star walking the runway included Ava Cota (Dance Moms and SYTCD next Generation), Roxy Earle (Real Housewives of Toronto), and Niche Caldwell.
Some names that you may recognize that were in attendance, were Nick Cannon, Deontay Wilder, Kelly Le Brock, Gabriela Dias, Sonja Kovac, and Halima Aden to name a few. Mac Duggal continues to be the preferred go to designer, that not only keeps up with what is fashionable, but always classy.
