2012 has only just begun, but from recent awards show appearances by our favorite celebrities, we can already see the fashion trends that are emerging. When you’re glowing like an Oscar statuette as George Clooney’s girlfriend Stacy Keibler in her golden Marchesa gown, you don’t really need any accessories to make a statement. She was only accessorizing with a gold colored clutch which matched her one-shouldered dress, but she looked as elegant as ever. The side-swept look accessorized with a golden swirl on her right hip was the look that was swiped directly from the runway — and she worked it.
This year’s fashion trends seem to be shifting toward little accessorized points of celebrity wardrobes. Case in point was Michelle Williams’ red Louis Vuitton gown, only accented by a cute diamond bow on the right side.
Both were bold colors that made a statement of elegance and grace, while others wore muted, drab colors for their appearance on the red carpet.
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland was wearing a muted mauve gown by fashion designer Alberta Feretti on the red carpet, looking drab and plain.
Her dress was left out there on its own merits without so much as a necklace, clutch or a focal point. This dress could have easily been spiced up with some color and perhaps a broach or a sash. Instead, she looks rather boring.
The Help actress Viola Davis was also one of the worst dressed for the evening, wearing a bright green colored Vera Wang dress. This dress was embellished along the bust line and left little to the imagination. As much as we love how talented this woman is, we did not love this gown on her whatsoever. Normally, we love a lot of color, but she should’ve gone more elegant.
As NBC premieres their new fashion oriented show Fashion Star, we will see new, up-and-coming fashion designers compete for the opportunity to win a multi-million dollar prize to launch their collections. What’s so good about this show is that if there is a piece that you like on the show, you can go to Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue or H&M to purchase the items the very next day.
We will be tuning in to watch the 14 fashion designers vying for the chance to unveil their latest collection for the $6 million prize. Will you be tuning in? Stay tuned, as we will be covering the show right here.
