...And How to get their Looks
We often see celebrities in skimpy outfits sprawled all over the tabloids, but more often than not, Celebrities show us how to work the modest dress code.
These Celebrities truly paint the red carpet red in their stunning Modest looks, inspiring us to create our own elegant and show stopping looks. Just because we're not celebrities attending the Grammy's doesn't mean we cant look and feel red carpet ready too, in our ModLi looks.
Our Favourite modestly dressed celebrities looks are...
1. Our all time favourite singer, Adele:
Adele’s first red carpet look covers all our Favourite trends: The flared midi, florals and bright colours. The outfit aligns itself beautifully by balancing the flared skirt with a tight lace sleeve. Adele chose contrasting colours of pink and red against the black fabric for a more vibrant look. The colour ways are perfect as they’re easily adaptable through seasons.
Inspired Look 1: The stunning ModLi wrap dress. The contrasting pastel flowers against the Navy create an eye catching number. The belted waist line synchs the waist for the ideal balance form the flared sleeves. Lie Adele’s dress, the flared midi adds character to your outfit. https://modli.co/adele-floral-dress-navy.html
Inspired Look 2: This high neck long sleeve dress is a gorgeous, more casual alternative to Adele’s red carpet glamour.

Adele’s second red carpet look works a slightly more elegant and sophisticated vibe. The maxi length allows it give a more relaxed and floaty shape. The gorgeous rich olive green really gives the dress an even more elegant touch. The use of crossover and gathered fabric makes the perfect modest dress.
