    Winning a Nobel Prize would be an amazing feat. Can you imagine choosing a dress for that incredible red carpet affair?  Elizabeth Blackburn and Carol Greider enjoyed such a delightful dilemma in 2009.

    Blackburn, Greider and Jack Szostak shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work on how chromosomes are protected by telomeres. What recognition for decades of research. I love this interview where they talk about finding out about the award.

    Of the 876 people who received the Nobel Prize between 2001 and 2013, 45 were women. I imagine that this number will increase dramatically in my lifetime. If you received a Nobel Prize, what would you wear to the award ceremony? Let us dream together….

    Shop PromGirl Sherri Hill turquoise beaded formal dresses

    Beaded floor length gown from Sherri Hill

    The award ceremonies are held in Olso, Norway every December 10. I think this beaded turquoise Sherri Hill formal gown would be a fabulous shot of color on short winter days. The beautiful beaded neckline means you wouldn’t have to worry about jewelry, either.

    Shop PromGirl Alyce beaded fuchsia formal dresses

    Fabulous fuchsia beaded dress from Alyce

    Equally striking would be an Alyce cap sleeve beaded dress in fuchsia. A sequin lattice and rhinestones cover sheer panels for an opulent style.

    Buy PromGirl Sherri Hill black beaded formal dresses

    Sherri Hill black beaded floor length gown

    I know some of you wouldn’t wear anything other than black. Here’a gorgeous Sherri Hill black beaded dress to accept your Nobel prize. Black and clear crystals sparkle on the bodice for a very dramatic look.

    Buy PromGirl Alyce bead sheer panel long sleeve red carpet dress

    Alyce beads sheer panels on a long sleeve formal gown

    Then again, this award ceremony is in the winter… in Norway. I may need long sleeves. The sheer nude base on this Alyce beaded long sleeve formal dress may be just what I need to keep warm when I’m nervous about accepting the award.

    Buy PromGirl Mon Cheri ruched formal dress

    Mon Cheri ruched cap sleeve gown

    An modern version of aqua would be an elegant choice for a red carpet award ceremony. Imagine wearing this Mon Cheri ruched gown as you accepted your prize.

    Enough dreaming! We’ve got work to do before we choose that perfect red carpet dress. See you in the lab.

    Shop PromGirl Atria sexy long black evening dresses

    Atria black evening gown with side cut outs

    At 5’10″, Kendall is already long, but she likes to emphasize her stature with long, lean looks. This black evening gown by Atria. With a long side slit, beaded v neckline and long sheer inserts at the sides, it adds curves but keeps a slender profile. The short train makes it perfect for red carpet events.

    Shop PromGirl mini dresses under 50 with Kendall Jenner style

    Everyone says that school starts in the fall. I’m not so sure about this.

    Don’t you start school before September 21? If so, your first day of school is technically in the summer. The back to school season finishes just as fall kicks in. When I’m shopping for back to school dresses, I’m really looking for a summer dress that can transition into fall. Here’s

    6 Cute Back to School Dresses

    Buy stripe back to school dresses from PromGirl

    Red, white and stripes

    Did you already buy this fabulous striped dress? I blogged about it for the World Cup Final. It’s perfect for the first day back to school.

    Buy PromGirl scoop back cap sleeve back to school dresses

    Scoop back cap sleeve dress

    Available in both blue and pink, this cap sleeve dress transitions beautifully from summer fun to fall street style. The wide waist band highlights your hourglass figure and the flared skirt can minimize your hips. Dress it up or wear it with Tom’s, this back to school dress does it all for less than $50.

    Buy PromGirl black and white print sheath dresses

    Print sheath dress with a flared skirt

    Shop red cap sleeve dresses with pockets from PromGirl

    Belted cap sleeve dress with pockets

    This cute red dress even has pockets! Cap sleeves, a jewel neckline and a gently gathered skirt create a fun casual dress that can easily head to school on 80F or 58F degree days.

    I know some of you can’t resist black and white. I’d recommend a tank dress that’s elegant yet certainly appropriate for class. Is it lace? Is it print? This black print sleeveless dress creates a beautiful illusion.

    Shop gathered scoop neck dresses for back to school from PromGirl

    Navy belted blouson dress

    Use a navy blouson dress as a background for back to school style. You can push up the sleeves for the first day of school. Opportunities to accessorize this scoop neck dress are pretty fine. Just add a dash of your personality.

    Shop French Connection black and white stripe dress from PromGirl

    It might be too warm for the first day of school, but I’d be wiling to risk it for this French Connection striped dress. Never fear, cooler days are on the horizon.
