Lucy Liu & Michelle Obama Kick Off The Clear Belt Trend

Just last month we were marveling at the genius of Lucy Liu’s clear belt, which she wore with her pink Lanvin dress to the 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards last month.

The belt gave Lucy a nipped in waist, whilst giving more shape to her dress, whilst not ruining the draping effect.

We should expect this to now become a trend, as Michelle Obama wore a Sonia Rykiel clear belt with her Michael Kors dress, and Dear Cashmere cardigan on the recent cover of Oprah’s O magazine.

Many of you asked me where you could get a clear belt from when Lucy wore it, and I still can’t find one anywhere. Give it a month or two, I am sure we will see plenty in stores, thanks to Mrs O.

Update: Sydne found a clear belt with black piping on French Connection’s US site & Anissa found one by Steve Madden.

3 Is The Magic Number For Amy Adams

When the pictures came in from the BAFTA Awards, and I saw the Amy Adams wear wearing RM by Roland Mouret for the 3rd time in a row, and I noticed a trend.

The trend is that Amy wears a designers dresses 3 separate times, before she moves onto the next designer.

This started with Oscar de la Renta at the Critic’s Choice Awards.

She has since gone onto repeat this pattern with Giambattista Valli, and most recently RM by Roland Mouret.

I would like to think the quota for loaned dresses is 3 at a time, and she falls so in love with all of them, that she has to wear them.

Maybe at her next 3 red carpet appearances she will wear 3 different designers and blow my theory, but for now it seems like a trend.


SAG Awards Trends – Ravishing Reds

After the sea of white gowns, Red was another hot colour on the red carpet last night.

I am a big advocate of colour on the red carpet and red is the hardest to pull off. There is a fear that the wearer might blend into the background.

Christina Hendricks, Lisa Edelstein, Diane Lane, Jane Krawoski and Claire Danes, all stood out when they took a risk with this bold colour last night.

Cherry, strawberry and candy apple stole spotlight.


SAG Awards Trends – White Gowns

The vibrant background of the 2009 SAG Awards red carpet, allowed these ladies in winter whites to really stand out.

Teri Hatcher, Olivia Wilde, Anne Hathaway, Amy Poehler, Jennifer Morrison and Taraji P. Henson all wore white gowns. Some with twinkling embellishments, some with halters, some with voluminous shapes, and others with clean lines.

What I noticed is that none of these women over accessorized their white gowns. The gowns did all the talking.

My favourite here is Teri Hatcher.


SAG Awards Trends – Halter Neck Gowns

At the Golden Globes it was all about strapless gowns, at the SAG Awards halter gowns ruled the red carpet.

January Jones, Perrey Reeves, Julia Ormond, Diane Lane, Penelope Cruz, Taraji P. Henson, Freida Pinto, Jane Krakowski, Alison Pill and Olivia Wilde all wore haltered gowns in different guises. Some were criss-cross halters, some were embellished.

January Jones’ Andrew GN gown, was by far the most impressive on the night.


Golden Globes Red Carpet Trends – Strapless

The ladies of Hollywood were happy to show a little skin on the red carpet last night, with the biggest fashion trend a floor-length strapless gown.

Everyone from Beyonce to Kate Winslet wore strapless dresses which showed off their toned arms.
