It appears that Robert Pattinson won’t be the only celebrity on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globes. Across the pond, a certain “Bond girl” was spotted on the London street dressed in a stunning custom-made Valentino gown! Let’s take a trip to the dictionary and see what exact words are being used to describe these two occasions…


A “carpet” at a red carpet event is a long, thin, red carpet that forms a pathway to the stage or other notable areas of the event. It usually leads to the area where the event’s guests are seated and can be used to access the stage or areas behind the stage (e.g., winners’ platforms). Carpets can be made of various fabrics, such as velvet and wool, and are most often paired with gold or silver decorations and fringe details. As the term “carpet” suggests, these items are usually purchased in large quantities, and can be rather expensive (e.g., a seven-yard roll of beige velvet is priced at around $1,700).


Valentino is a luxury goods company known for its clothing and accessories. The company was founded by Italian designer Valentino Garavani in 1952. There are various designers under the Valentino umbrella, but only a handful of them are as famous as the house itself is for creating lavish yet simple designs for special events and weddings.

One of these designers is Valentino, and their gowns are usually constructed using the crinoline (pronounced “krin-oh-line”) pattern, a type of crinoline dress that was first manufactured in the early 19th century and named after its creator, the Englishwoman Anna Crinoline. These items are usually embellished with intricate needlework and finished with flounces, panels, and braiding. The designer’s gowns are often embellished with Swarovski crystals, and some of them are even lined with real dog hair!

Also known as “Scotch” or “Mountain” weave, the material bouclé is a luxurious, thick and lustrous wool that is named after its maker, the French company Le Roy Brothers.

This material is similar to other types of wool and is used for the same purposes (e.g., apparel and upholstery). However, bouclé is more common in the manufacturing of blankets, pillows, and bedding for higher-end hotels and other kinds of residential settings. Its soft texture and shearling-like appearance make this an ideal choice for those seeking to bring a touch of nature indoors.


The color blue is used to designate items in the following ways:

According to the dictionary, these terms are just some of the many ways color is used to describe something. For example, the color yellow is used to describe the sun and the sky, the color green is used to describe nature and vegetation, and so on. It is important to remember that these items are used to decorate the occasion, but they are not necessarily functional.
