Most women would balk at the thought of donning black on their wedding day, but Olivia Wilde inadvertently made the thought less scary with the wonderful poofy ball gown she wore to Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.
We know Wilde wasn't planning on looking like a bride for the event, but her fanciful black and silver-studded frock looked fit for a queen - or a lucky gal on her big day. Her ensemble is bound to have women embracing a black tie motif for their marital shindig and incorporating uber-sophisticated decorations that will have guests raging that black is the new white.
Black tulle and ribbons that accentuate the ceremony space will increase the class factor, as long as they're used in moderation. Pair them with white or another neutral, contrasting color to soften the intense effect this dark color may have.
Guests will feel swanky walking away with formal black custom mint tins, and men especially will be grateful for personalized black border cufflinks and personalized black border tie clips, especially if they feel underdressed for your event.
