Formal wear is probably one of the oldest types of types of fashion available. Women’s evening clothing is readily available because the gowns and dresses that are part of women’s evening wear are similar to what was once worn at a king’s court long ago.


Initially gowns etc were the most important form of fashion because they were what were commonly worn by ladies in the old times. In the old times women just added a train to their dress to make it more formal. However as times progressed so did fashions. Evening gowns became the staples for evening wear. For less formal parties like cocktail parties, cocktail dresses became popular. The styles for women’s evening clothing have changed over time. Initially, it was all about celebrating the female shape dresses were made in a way that they emphasized breasts and hips and showing off the hourglass figure. The late fifties brought the longer evening gowns which were made from luxurious materials and had embellishments. Women like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe personified style in this era and Monroe’s long white dress and heels that she used to pose over vent have epitomized style whereas Hepburn’s naïve look with the full skirted white gown and evening gloves Roman Holiday too won hearts.


Some of the best designers for women’s evening clothing are the big names like Versace, Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Every year these big brands churn out the most beautiful evening wear. They also dress beauties from Hollywood for prestigious red carpet events.
