My favorites, however, showed color. Alyson Campbell - Jack + Bill, Porter Novelli - wore a one-arm gold sequen top with a long dark skirt, and Hanna Lee - HannaLee Communications - a gorgeous red strapless gown with interesting lines and asymmetrical, tiered ruffles that flared near the ground. The consensus seemed to be that an event with networking opportunities, such as the PRWeek Awards, it's best to stick to classic and conservative. However, a little color or shine can help you stand out in a sea of black. And there's no better conversation-starter than, "Oh my gosh, I love your dress."
Also, I'd love to see more floor-length gowns. I know we live in a casual world, but come on! If we can't play dress-up at a black-tie event, when can we?? That's why last year's PRWeek "golden hanger" went to PRWeek's Natalie Morales, and this year's goes to Hanna Lee.
