Is it me or have the red carpet fashions become highly unimaginative and outdated? Spaghetti straps? Overly-used metallics? Stringent silhouettes? Outrageously poofy ball gowns? And why was everyones teeth so yellow *cough -Mel Gibson- cough*? Also, even the cameras can’t hide those crow’s-feet. Everyone is getting visibly older and plastic surgery is failing. God bless Hollywood.
I don’t really care to watch award shows but I am here for the red carpet fanfare. Seen also here.
I won’t waste my time posting pictures of the worst dressed *cough -Lucy Liu, Halle Barry and Sienna Miller- cough* because I don’t want to take away from all the pretty posted below.
#6 – Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka – One of my favorite designers. I love the attention to detail in this black and gold form-fitting dress. Helen looks amazing and age appropriate.
#5 – Kerry Washington in Miu Miu – Everything she wears fits her perfectly. Not too constricted or revealing. Neutral heaven.
#4 – Lea Michele in Elie Saab – Not a huge fan of halters but she redeemed herself by flatteringly revealing her legs and arms. The pristine whiteness of this dress illuminates her glowing skin in all the right places.
#3 – Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad – Although I’m tired of seeing JLo in these form-fitting dresses, she is known for wearing a mean silhouette so I will give her credit here. I love a woman who can appreciate a sheer overlay.
#2 – Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen – Honey. This dress is tasteful with just a splash a sexy in the cleavage area. Can’t go wrong with a cinched waist, either.
#1 – Eva Longoria in Emilio Pucci – My God. Representing for the petite women with style and grace. I am in LOVE with open back dresses. Although she’s revealing back, leg and boob, Eva nailed this classy look. Sheer and laced for the gods.
Next time, I’d love to post some men’s fashion but I’m always disappointed in what I see. Granted, it is a “black tie” affair but I wish they’d try something different. And maybe that’s why I can appreciate Kanye’s sense of style because he isn’t afraid to push the envelope. Hopefully, we will see a bit more from the men in future red carpet events.
