After the bustle of the holidays, everyone is winding down except for our friends on the West Coast. January marks not only the beginning of a New Year but also the start of AWARD SEASON! That’s right, it’s that time again where we see our beloved celebrity idols and crushes either make it or break it on the red carpet. Nothing is better than having your closest friends over, while cracking a few bottles of wine and dishing on this season’s hottest looks as they grace our televisions. The award show to always kick off award season is the “People’s Choice Awards” which aired last night. This is one of the more low key award shows, however, it is one of the most fun red carpets to watch! The reason for this is that the setting isn’t extremely formal like the Academy Awards and/or terribly casual like the “Teen Choice Awards.” It’s a happy medium, which makes the fashion insanely interesting. This is when celebrities get a chance to truly express themselves in what they wear, and their looks can either range from casual chic to elegant glamour. Another reason why I’m drawn to the “People’s Choice Awards” show is that it draws talent from all areas; movies, TV and music. It’s rare that you get all three categories in one show. Let’s take a look at this year’s hit and misses of the 2013 “Peoples Choice Awards.”
Kaley Cuoco was once again this year’s host for the 2nd time in a row and is seen here wearing a fair pink Christian Siriano Dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Dana Reecca Designs Jewelry. I’m not crazy about this look, and I think it’s too “cute-sy.” What do you think?
Taylor Swift shocked all of us this year and looks absolutely stunning in this stark white Ralph Lauren gown, complete with dangling turquoise earrings. The 23 year old newly single songstress sure can rock the camera! She is definitely my pick for ‘Best Dressed’ at this year’s “People’s Choice Awards.”
Lea Michele is seen here in a shockingly bright pink, fun, and flirty mini dress, completely embellished by Ellie Saab. I applaud Michele for making such a drastic choice as this creation also has sheer cutouts from front to back. On glee this season we are noticing how major of a body Michele has, and golf claps to her for showing it off! This isn’t my favorite look of the night, but this just shows you how diverse the “Peoples Choice Awards” can get.
Ashley Rickards looks sophisticated and mature in this stunning Aidan Mattox gown. The color is a neutral and really makes her gorgeous chocolate brown hair pop. The detail in that triangular beading is sick…which is a good thing
Julianne Hough made sure everyone noticed her as she frocked down the red carpet in this amazing Tony Ward Couture cocktail dress. The adorable closed-toe shoes are none other than Guiseppe Zanotti and the short hair is definitely working in her favor. It’s nice to see Hough in a more covered up dress, as it’s a change up from her normal flesh flashing costumes on “Dancing with the Stars.”
Naomi Watts amped up the game as she appeared bold and flawless. An Alexander McQueen Resort ’13 gown is a unique number, however, it works for her. With that sexy open back, it’s no wonder that this star has lots of things to smile about.
While some starlets have made incredible feats in the fashion category last night…others didn’t exactly. Take a look at some of the stars who should’ve also let the people choose what they were going to wear.
Jennifer Aniston has finally done it. After always looking beyond incredible in her perfect glowing skin and killer body…it appears she is ready to play the rom-com version of “Gladiator.”Sorry Jen, maybe next year.
Heidi Klum is generally associated as a fashion icon with her impeccable looks and vast experience as a model. However, even though she has a rockin’ body, she has missed the mark for me on last night’s dress. This Julien McDonald gown has me thinking Princess Leia slave couture…anyone else get that vibe?
Paris Hilton is known for lots of things, and now the most recent will be her winning my “Worst Dressed” title for this years “People’s Choice Awards.” This scantily clad dress is all sorts of wrong, while the shoes don’t help. Sorry Paris, but…nice try.
Eddie Redmayne is pulling off a rugged yet polished look in this tartan print suit, completed with all the right accessories, including the black vest. Congratulations Redmayne, you’re this year’s “Best Dressed Male”!
Well, we have taken only a glimpse into the good and the bad when it came to fashion at this year’s “People’s Choice Awards.” It’s a new year and award season 2013 is well underway. Next up is the “Golden Globe Awards” which takes place on January 13th. A whole new breed of glamour and glitz awaits and I can’t wait to share with you all that Hollywood has to offer once again!
