Awards season officially kicked off with the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday. Certainly not one that I watch, but still like to check out the style. There were some really horrible dresses circa Prom '95, but also some cool, modern cut dresses that I hope to see more of this weekend at the Golden Globes.
Brights are still all over the place on the red carpet, and these two ladies took it a step farther with the addition of some lace. Both trends we saw on the runway for Fall and Spring of this year.
I love the mix of feminine fabrics and ruching with leather in Kristen Bell's dress. Nina Debrov killed it in this kelly green dress with delicate lace sleeves. The color is stunning and the accessories are perfect, nice and neutral.
If you followed me during awards season last year, you know I am pretty harsh when it comes to the styling. These ladies show us that less is more when your dress is so loud. And pretty, loose hair with natural makeup keeps the young, young.
My wish is that Sunday's Golden Globes (which REALLY kicks off awards season) has some looks that actually dazzle us a bit. Sometimes no one takes risks and the gowns get very pageant and boring. Would love to see all those beautiful pastel colors from the Spring '12 collections, as well as brights done in tasteful, modern ways.
Can't wait. Happy Weekend!
