Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

I’ve been talking about it for a while now, but the hottest red carpet trend at the moment is winter white.

Stars have been giving us pure as the winter snow looks on the red carpet in recent weeks.

Nicole Kidman (in Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana) and Michelle Williams (in Dior and Prada) have been the biggest champions of this trend wearing white many times in a row.

Thankfully neither has opted for white shoes to complete their looks.

Angelina Jolie did opted for white pumps with her a cozy angora Atelier Versace white dress with a thigh-high split.

Gwyneth Paltrow showed off her sexy back in Pucci and was demure in white lace Monique Lhuillier.

Katie Cassidy channeled her inner Blake Lively in Versace. Jessica Alba looked festive in her feathered Valentino Couture strapless dress and Olivia Wilde looked gorgeous opting for a minimalist Calvin Klein look.

Here are 3 perfect winter white looks you can buy now at 3 different price points.

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.

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

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.
