Pictures, interviews, flashes, everyone yelling your name. Yes, you guessed it. You’re on “The Red Carpet!”  The experience can be a bit nerve-racking, especially for a first-timer.  The red carpet is an integral part of the night for media outlets to see you from galas to award shows.  Here are a few universal red carpet tips to follow:

  1. Get there early. Getting there well in advance allows you to avoid such a huge crowd. You can avoid engaging in conversation with other celebrities if you’re nervous.  Walk the carpet, pose, and conduct interviews. Now you can head to the venue. Many stars like to show up fashionably late; however, if you’re feeling nervous and don’t want to engage too much, the earlier, the better.
  2. Give everyone space. Personal space is necessary on the red carpet for various reasons.
  3. Being on the top 10 best-dressed list is a goal for lots of celebrities. Hugging someone too tight or stepping on a long train to a dress can ruin an entire look for someone. Wardrobe malfunctions happen often, and you don’t want to be the cause of it. Wave, an air kiss, and a smile are doable.
  4. You want to ensure you get photo ops by yourself; also, you don’t want to interrupt photo ops for other celebs.
  5. Don’t interrupt another person’s interview. Mistakenly, celebrities have interrupted conversations assuming the press was talking to them.   Personal space allows you to know if a question is for you.
  6. It’s okay to say, “no comment.” Often, walking the red carpet makes one feel pressured. It’s okay not to answer an uncomfortable question.  No comment is always better than making the wrong comment.
