What do all these celebrities have in common (besides fame, money and a great wardrobe)? The answer is today’s topic of discussion. So let’s just dive in.
How do you take your fashion magazines? Model? Celebrity? Or neither? (Because really, those are your only two options).
The “let’s use more plus sized models” and “stop Photoshop” conversations are still happening but after an interview with Vogue UK‘s EIC Alexandra Shulman over the weekend, there’s a lot more to talk about.
Although still a few weeks away, awards season is upon us. It’s my favorite time of year, in the blogging world anyway, because if I can’t be on E! Fashion Police to make my commentary, I sure as hell am going to do it right here on ChiCityFashion instead.
These celebs can pick any dress from any collection they could possibly want, but we do tend to see mostly recent runway collections at these red carpet events. I’ve compiled my favorite red carpet ready looks from Spring ’12 that I hope to see worn by some major celebrities this coming awards season. And this is just the beginning…we still have Fall ’12 to come next month!
This might be too avant-garde for most red carpet events–it could be better fit for the Met Ball, worn by someone who knows how to OWN a look–but this was my favorite dress from Alexander McQueen Spring ’12 and it’s too amazing not to have a red carpet moment.
A lot of celebrities don’t like taking the risk of wearing color on the red carpet, and often they can bore us with their skin colored bandage dresses or plain LBDs. However, this would be a great option for someone wanting to be subtly sexy without being too over-the-top.
Now this is the completely opposite of the Azzaro number above; this is for the girl who loves to wear color. Because of the more casual nature of this dress, the color is not overpowering. Great option for something like the Independent Spirit awards.
This dress is perfect example of simplicity making a statement. There isn’t too much going on here, but between the black detailing and the play with volume, you don’t need much else…except a kick-ass shoe of course.
I can’t tell if this would be too casual for the red carpet (I would have to see it in person) but it was my favorite look from Christian Siriano Spring ’12 and it’s definitely deserving of a red carpet moment.
Elle Fanning…your dress is ready.
I’m not a gown person, but when you make it neon I will definitely reconsider. I can see Zoe Saldana owning this look at the Oscars. Not many people could pull of this much chartreuse but I’m hoping someone [Zoe] will try!
Marchesa has become a staple on the red carpet and it’s because of intricate designs like this one that makes them so popular at these events. This is definitely a statement maker but it’s so gorgeous, it NEEDS to be photographed on someone fabulous.
Another Marchesa stunner, this one is much more toned down than their usual designs. However, if you’re a celebrity and find yourself pretty pregnant during awards season…this is YOUR dress!
You could find yourself on the best dressed or worst dressed list in this one…no in between. With the right styling and the right celebrity, this could definitely be done right.
Wearing a white long dress, on a day that’s not your wedding, is not an easy thing to pull off. But with Prabal’s use of cut-outs, sheer detailing and of course that amazing slit, this is beyond perfect for the red carpet and a great canvas for a statement piece of jewelry and an amazing pair of heels.
This is probably the biggest risk out of any of the dresses I featured here today, but it’s one of my favorite looks from any of the Spring ’12 collections and I’m dying to see someone wear this look…and wear it well. Whether it’s worn with or without the harness, the detailing here is just too gorgeous not to have a big red carpet moment.
What dresses do you hope to see on the red carpet this awards season?
