The People’s Choice Awards is one of the most sought-after events in Hollywood not only because of the prestigious awards given, but also because of how celebrities make sure they arrive in their sharpest designer clothes. At this year’s event, the pool of celebrities in attendance were, as always, stunning and dashing. From standout shades to pretty patterns, Fashion Glamour selected the outstanding looks from the star-studded gathering.
Standout Shades. One of the most foolproof ways to stand out on the red carpet is to bring some color to the occasion. While Rachel Leigh Cook took our breath away in an aquamarine Oliver Tolentino creation, Glee star Lea Michele scored a number of nods when she turned up in a pink Elie Saab frock.
Meanwhile, actress Brittany Snow was all about looking demure and daring in a yellow Maria Lucia Hohan gown that had a super plunging neckline. Saucy and chic, these ladies definitely exemplified how colors are supposed to be worn on the red carpet.
Modern Metallics. Futuristic fashion, a looming spring trend, is also one way of getting sartorial approval. We’re paying tribute to the women who risked it in modern metallic numbers, shying away from the tried-and-tested Grecian gowns or lace dresses. Kristin Kreuk of Beauty and the Beast wowed us in a magnificent Jean Fares dress. The edgy contrast between the asymmetrical chiffon top and the metallic high-waist skirt is not only a visual delight but also a textured dream.
As she flaunted her curves in a glamorous number from Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet, Rumer Willis proved that she’s definitely all grown up now — and also her mother’s stylish daughter. Though her brunette locks were a bit disjointed from her chic look, her glamorous gown was easily one of the evening’s bests. Also looking sophisticated was Naomi Watts, who arrived in an Alexander McQueen number that had an inspiring gold halter top.
Sparkling Stunners. Three ladies dressed up in all their shiny and shimmery glory, proving that you can’t take away glitz, gold, and glitter from the red carpet. The always runway-ready Heidi Klum displayed her gams in an asymmetrical dress from Julien Macdonald. Meanwhile, Julianne Hough looked like she was wearing the evening sky in her very girly Tony Ward frock.
Although sparkly dresses are also known for its tacky tendencies, Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence was far from such image for she looked mighty elegant in a Valentino dress. Her Nicholas Kirkwood diamond-encrusted satin heels were as sparkly as her dress too, thanks to the diamonds decorating the platforms.
Prints and Patterns. Gowns with delicate prints and patterns are not the easiest motifs to pull off on the red carpet. However, these actresses managed to walk in sartorial success without losing the “fun” in fashion. Spring is still a few months away from now, but Chloe Grace Moretz had a blinding moment with fun florals in a Simone Rocha dress.
Emma Watson carried herself with class in a Peter Pilotto mini dress that was peppered with graphic prints and cutouts. While majority of fashion critics were quick to dismiss hotel heiress Paris Hilton‘s wild Mary Katrantzou dress as tacky, we at Fashion Glamour thought it was – still is — such a visual delight.
