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.

Spring 2010 Trend – Clogs

Clogs clomped their down the runways of Chanel and Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2010 presentations. Those of us who were childs of the 70s and 80s screamed “No, not clogs again.”

For me they weren’t very desirable the first time around, and even with a heel, tassles, buckles and prints I’m still not sold.

From what I remember they were just damn difficult, noisy and painful to walk in, but Uncle Karl and Marc Jacobs are trying to seduce us with clogs this season.

Celebs have already been spotted wearing clogs.

Alexa Chung started the trend back in January at Chanel’s Spring 2010 Couture show in Paris. Most recently Rachel Bilson was the epitome of casual chic wearing a red pair of clogs, whilst a dressed down Ashley Simpson wore a black pair.

Clogs. Thumbs up or thumbs down?

Red Carpet Trends – All White On The Night

White was a huge trend on the SAG Awards red carpet last night.

It was also a trend at the 2010 People’s Choice Awards, and coincidently at the 2009 SAG Awards.

Pre-spring is the perfect time for a white trend to arrive, just as we’re getting bored of wearing black and covering up in the winter months.

None of these crisp bright white look felt too bridal – with maybe the exception of Paula Patton.

It was also nice to see some shorter styles on this red carpet like Katrina Bowden’s Tadashi Shoji feathered-like frock.

2010 National Television Awards Trends: Purple

One big trend stood out at the 2010 National Television Awards – Purple. A trend we saw on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last weekend.

Ex wife of Sir Paul McCartney, Heather Mills arrived at the awards wearing a strapless floor length purple gown. I’m still not sure about her new pixie hairstyle.

Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh wore a purple floor length dress with a pleated detail at the front to pick up the award for Best Serial Drama with her co stars.

Champion Ice Skater, Jane Torvill wore a knee length ruffle detail dress but I wish she’d left those tights where they belong -  on the ice rink.

Television presenter Fearne Cotton wore a purple mini dress with a double bow detail at the back, which is available to buy from Very.co.uk

Angelica Bell wore a Grecian style floaty Marchesa gown with a jeweled detail on the bust.

Jackie St Claire arrived with her ex squeeze Simon Cowell and was wearing a layered purple floor length dress.

Purple continues to reign.
