As the year starts, we are eager to see the looks at the red carpet events and are set to embrace ourselves in the glitz and glamor of the awards. The year started with the relatively toned down People’s Choice Award on January 10, 2013, where celebrities really experimented with their styles. A few trends and styles definitely stood out, making the night fashion fabulous!
1920’s inspiration. Jennifer Lawrence showed up in a draped, loose fitted Valentino Couture dress. Combined with sheer panel and silver neckline, it definitely had a 1920s flapper-esque touch to it. And the best way to wear this trend was red carpet’s favorite color: Black!
Brights and Neons. Some stars decided to take a turn from the quintessential colors and have fun instead by going “bright.” The most eye catching looks were the neon yellow Simone Rocha dress worn by Chloe Moretz. The dress, unusual to the characteristics of a red carpet event, was very fresh with the semi-sheer details.
Another star who mesmerized the crowd with their impeccable style was Lea Michelle who donned a beautiful Elie Saab embellished short dress in flamingo pink. Other pop colors that caught my fancy were Rachael Leigh Cook in the blue Oliver Tolentino dress, Paris Hilton in a vibrant Lea Michelle green printed mini dress and Brittany Snow in Maria Lucia Hohan.
White. While a complete contrast from the pop colors, white was at a top spot with the celebrities. Pop star Taylor Swift dazzled the red carpet with her white Ralph Lauren gown. The gown with a plunging neckline and floor swinging length, topped with pure white color surely made an impact in the crowd.
With a completely effortless look, on the other hand, was Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo clad in a cream Lanvin dress. The beauty of the V Neck, sleeved maxi dress was in the minutest detail in the accessories- the wide black belt and gold chain.
Sequins. A red carpet event is not complete without sequins, and this evening was no less. I loved Naomi Watts’ Alexander McQueen gown with the stunning gold top, which definitely made a statement. While Naomi Watts’ gown was glittered only on the top, Rumer Wilis went head to toe sequin in her Alice+Olivia gown with black and silver diagonal stripes. Although always topping the charts for red carpet looks, sequins this time definitely made a show stopping statement.
Fit and Flare. This classic trend finally has taken off on the red carpet this time. The fit –and-flare little dresses have proved to be glamorous, versatile and extremely flattering. While there were some edgier styles with Jennifer Aniston in her leather Christian Dior, there were also some ultra feminine styles in Christian Sirano’s petal pink dress worn by Kaley Cuoco or glitter clad silhouette of Tony Ward’s couture worn by Julianne Hough. This trend definitely brought a fresh, new and modern look to this classic retro style!
While these trends were worn by celebrities on the red carpet, it’s never too hard to pull them off in real lives. So get ready and embrace yourselves in these trends for your next evening party!
