You are going to have so much fun - that theme is awesome! It's best to understand a little bit about the Moulin Rouge to know what you'll need to wear. The Moulin Rouge is a centuries-old, traditional French cabaret theater where tourists can catch a music/dance entertainment show when visiting Montmarte, a district in Paris. The decor is turn-of-the-century French romance - lots of red, black, and other rich colors. V. dramatic! Think full skirts, bold colors, long dresses, tiers of ruffles, and long black gloves. Basically, you want a showstopping dress that'll get you noticed!
To get inspired, you should absolutely check out the FIDM Debut 2008 Fashion Show, which had a can can theme this year! Click here to watch. And here are some dress styles to inspire you:
Here's a very can can-influenced look from Windsor. It's very dramatic with a corset-like top, a jaw-dropping slit, and a beaded bodice.
London Dress, Windsor, $400
This dress from Jessica McClintock screams French romance! The lacy, black bodice is such an expressive contrast to the silky tiers of pale blue ruffles.
Style # 53136, Jessica McClintock, $300
This dress is heavily-influenced by the cabaret - it's got a rich, vibrant red hue and tons of cascading ruffles that are shorter in the front and exquisitely long in the back.
Style # T-12597, Anna Scott, $358
