Q & A With Celebrity Designer Pamella Roland
Every week, we will be bringing you Q & A's with some of Hollywood's hottest designers. One fashion designer that always comes to mind when thinking about the red carpet is Pamella Roland.

A favorite among celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria and Emily Blunt, this American designer has proved that couture doesn't necessarily means "made in Paris."

What inspires you to create your collections?
Most of my inspiration comes from what I am passionate about . . . art, architecture and traveling with my family.

Do you have certain celebs in mind when designing your gowns?
I strive to design gowns that look beautiful on every woman--celebrity or not--but dressing Angelina Jolie for the red carpet would be amazing.

Tell us your first reaction when you saw (a certain celeb) wearing your dress on a red carpet.
A significant moment for me was when Kim Catrall wore a Pamella Roland pink embroidered gown to the Emmys at a time when "Sex in the City" was really big. I was in Chicago receiving the Gold Coast Award as the Emmys were airing but could not refrain from screaming in celebration!

What is a big trend we can expect from your collection this Fall?
Currently, I am very interested in fine draping and asymmetry. Our line is also known for embellishments--beading, embroidery, and cutouts. Expect these elements to be a prominent part of my new collection.

What are the do's and don'ts of fashion?
Always wear what looks great for your body type and what fits your personality. Never buy anything just because it's the latest trend . . . there's nothing worse than having a trend hangover.

Best fashion tip for anyone to look like a red carpet star?
It is always great to have a style role model, but feeling comfortable and sexy in what YOU are wearing is most important. Be yourself. Your gown should represent who you are and not overshadow you.

Does the look in the mirror and take off one accessory rule still imply in 2010?
Yes, absolutely. Less is more.

Who was your favorite designer that has influenced you?
Coco Chanel is such an icon for me. She paved the way for so many talented female designers.
