Red Carpet Trend: Sexy Cut-Outs

Cut-out dresses have been a consistent trend on the red carpet for a few months, with some of our favorite celebs showcasing their Pilates toned abs in this very creative and uber sexy way.

Halle Berry, Karolina Kurkova and Selena Gomez have been embracing this trend recently, which appears to be a big hit as temperatures begin to warm up.

Halle was the most recent star to bring this trend to the red carpet.

The eternally sexy actress rocked her Halston dress with an asymmetrical cut-out last night, but many of you commented that the look wasn’t quite age appropriate and her modification of the dress was slightly tacky.

Love it or hate it, this trend was made for a body like Halle’s.

Subtle cut-outs have also been featured on dresses worn by Ginnifer Goodwin, Kerry Washington and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

All of these ladies showcased this trend in different ways in long gowns and short dresses; cut-outs are a great way to show a peak of skin and, when done properly gives off maximum sex appeal without being trashy.

This is a great trend to look hot whilst keeping cool. I’m sure we will continue to see more off this trend over the summer.

Red Carpet Trend: White Suits

One of the biggest trends to light up the red carpets these past few months has been the white suit trend.

Stars are channeling their inner Bianca Jagger by donning super sexy white suits.

Mila Kunis was an early adopter of this trend wearing a white Boca Negro suit back in March.

Vanessa Hudgens and Robin Wright wore a Mimi Plange and Julien Macdonald white suits – respectively – on the same day proving that this trend was gathering pace.

Elle MacPherson wore a stunning snowy white MaxMara pant suit which featured sexy side thigh-high split, which revealed a pair of 70s inspired gold platform slingback heels.

The trend was picked up by three stars this weekend.

Camilla Belle, Halle Berry and Rihanna all opted for white pant suits for their red carpet appearances.

Camilla opted for a more masculine-inspired look with her take on the trend wearing Tom Ford with Sergio Rossi patent pumps.

Halle’s vintage Roberto Cavalli tailored white suit was paired with a thin white tank with yellow embroidery.

Rihanna surprised us all by wearing this incredibly sexy white Max Azria suit to the 2011 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. Her look was simple but still made a big impact.

The white trend is definitely here to stay and these celebrities show us that there are many different ways of rocking a white suit.

You can choose to go 70s inspired, minimalist, sexy or sleek but either way it definitely makes a statement.

2011 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Trends

The biggest and most surprising trend on the red carpet at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards last night was the colour green.

Never have we seen so many shades of Hunter, Kelly, Jade and Forest green on the red carpet at one event.

The colour I usually love to see on red haired stars was embraced by these gorgeous brunettes.

The other big trend we often see on the red carpet was the one-shoulder trend.

Whether they opted for the left or right side, embellished or decorated with ruffles or feathers, stars can’t get enough of this style.

It’s the perfect way to show off those Yoga toned arms.

Leighton Meester Starts A Menswear Red Carpet Trend

On Monday night Leighton Meester wore a Thom Browne suit on the red carpet to the 2010 Gotham Independent Film Awards.

By Tuesday night many other celebrities had followed suit….see what I did there.

Stylish celebrities including Jessica Alba, Lara Bingle and Winona Ryder were all spotted on the red carpet wearing menswear instead of pretty dress.

The looks ranged from shirtless in Dolce & Gabbana for Jessica, who paired her look with sexy studded Christian Louboutin Pigalle studded pumps and an ivory Christian Louboutin Loulou clutch.

Lara opted to wear a white shirt and black velvet ribbon neck-tie with her peg-legged suit.

Gothic Winona kept her look black on black on black on black.

Her satin lapel Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci suit was paired with a satin clutch and silver pendant necklace.

They all look smart, but the only one who nails this look is Jessica.

Leighton can’t take total credit for this look as Marlene Dietrich and Diane Keaton popularized androgynous-chic a long time ago.

BlackBerry Torch Launch Party Trend – Black Blazers

Actress Shenae Grimes, Michelle Trachtenberg and Rashida Jones all sported black blazers at the BlackBerry Torch Launch Party in LA last night.

Sheane toughen up her Zara blazer by adding Helmut Lang skinny leather pants, a striped tank, a small crucifix and scuffed boots.

Maybe that black hair is part of the rock chic persona she’s trying to give us.

Michelle may have gone for an all dark look, but her Dannijo statement necklace takes this look from a 4 to a 9 out of 10.

She’s also wearing my favourite blazer, as I love those satin lapels which is from H&M.

J Brand jeans, Stuart Weitzman heels and Giuseppe Zanotti clutch complete the look.

Rashida’s look is all about her accessories. This is where Anna Kendrick failed to add a spark to her look.

Her necklace, clutch, LD Tuttle fringed sandals and gold bracelets perfect her overall look.

She didn’t really need her 3.1 Phillip Lim blazer with her ivory top and petrol green skirt, but this is very much her signature style and she totally makes it work for her.

Tres chic.

Get your Fall staple early by picking one of these black blazers.

Topshop ruched sleeved blazer Topshop US $125 & Topshop International £60
See by Chloe double breasted blazer Net-A-Porter International £395
Alexander McQueen wool-crepe blazer Net-A-Porter US $1,595 &
Net-A-Porter International £895

Red Carpet Trends – Shorts & Blazers

Amanda Seyfried wowed on the red carpet at the “Letters to Juliet” Tribeca Film Festival New York premiere wearing a Viktor and Rolf shorts/blazer combo.

The very next day Gwyneth Paltrow did the same at the “Iron Man 2” premiere in Giorgio Armani.

This has become a very interesting red carpet trend we can all try.

Shorts are the new mini skirts.

Worn with a blazer the shorts become more wearable. This styling combination is instantly chic.

An embellished blazer like Amanda’s is perfect for a party look, whereas Olivia Palermo shorts/blazer look paired with tights is the great way to style your look for those overcast days when the sun just won’t shine through the clouds.

Net-A-Porter.com have a number of printed, check, striped, black shorts paired with black, navy, embellished blazers if you’re looking for inspiration.
