A black evening gown paired with her bronzed skin tone and matching black hair is as edgy as it gets. This dress stands out tremendously well against the stage backdrop.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, it takes a confident woman with a very strong sense of self to choose a presentation as bold as this. Black is a commanding color on stage.
Kara's evening gown features a unique A-line silhouette, bodysuit-like bodice, long sleeves, and a plunging vee neckline covered by illusion mesh.
This fitted silhouette accentuates Kara’s slim yet curvy figure. The trendy bodysuit-like bodice fits her to a T!
This gown has both elements of sex appeal and modesty. A high slit adds a nice element of exposed skin to help break up the heavy nature of the rest of the gown. The long sleeves and illusion mesh keep the gown modest and mature.
The satin skirt moves extraordinarily as Kara walks across the stage. It also adds softness to an overall edgy gown.
Kara did an excellent job styling this gown from top to bottom! The earrings match impeccably well, and her hair pulled in front on one side allows for the bodice to really be showcased.
