What type of women do you envision wearing your dresses?
The Adrianna Papell for E! Live from The Red Carpet woman is fashion forward and glamorous. She wants to be the center of attention and walk the red carpet in style, but at an affordable price.

Do you design with celebs in mind?
Of course. Everyone turns to a muse for inspiration, and Hollywood is full of muses!

What does it take to be a trendsetter?
The recipe for a trendsetter: Fashion sense mixed with confidence and a dash of risk.

No job is ever glamorous 24/7 – can you reveal some of the perhaps unexpected “grunt work” it takes to be on top of the trends?
A lot happens behind the scenes. We must be on top of every aspect of a trend—from color and silhouette to fabrication and all of the details in between. A lot of research goes into each dress design.

We’re heading into summer: What are 3 fashion staples every woman MUST have the spring/summer season?
1. A brightly colored dress to make you shine — for both day and night.
2. Interesting necklines — sweetheart, one shoulder, halter. The more drama, the better.
3. Sparkle — sequins, paillettes and metallic accents.
