As we ramp up for my favorite time of the year- awards and fashion week season, the People's Choice Awards brought out celebrities who were ready to show off their first red-carpet looks of the new year. Here are some of the prominent trends I noticed last night.
Winter white hues were big at the People's Choice Awards. Newcomer Adelaide Kane chose a lacy Rhea Costa frock with an emerald clutch for a pop of color. Humanitarian Award recipient Jennifer Hudson dazzled in a long-sleeved Kaufman Franco sheath. Jason Wu's form-fitting zippered dress looked fresh on Jessica Alba, however her solid white Casadei pumps weighed down the ensemble. A strappy, open toed sandal is usually a better choice for this monochromatic look.
The freezing temperatures throughout much of the U.S. seems to have left some stars yearning for Spring, as floral prints were also prominent. Unfortunately most of the looks fell flat. Florals can be tricky and are best kept simple. Sandra Bullock looked polished in her dress by Peter Pilotto, whose highly-anticipated collaboration with Target will be in stores on February 9th. Kat Dennings chose the vampy route with a David Meister gown. With a shoulder embellishment, low-cut neckline and busy floral pattern, Heidi Klum's Armani gown seemed to have a bit too much going on.
Colorblocking was out in full force- mostly kept in neutral tones on this red carpet. Newly-engaged Naya Rivera looked stunning in a Michael Kors dress. Co-host Beth Behrs showed off her first look of the evening in a flowing Rene Caovilla gown, showing that black and white are always a good pair. Emily Deschanel matched her Max Azria gown to her colorblocked clutch.
