Congratulations to the winners of the Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards, and also the Critics Choice Awards 2012. After the trophy was shared our turn to discuss the winner of the best dresses. Early year we saw a lot of celebrities are more daring dresses with delicate details, sexy pieces, and also the choice of bold colors. Who are the most stylish celebrities???
Inspiration: Sexy Back
Still remember the backless trend some time ago? After going back and forth the catwalk, these dresses can now be seen on Claire Danes, Shailene Woodley, and Julianne Hough. Backless dress will make you look sexy but still elegant. Keep in mind to do the fittings beforehand and do not miss attach tape to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.

Then the beautiful Emma Stone chose the green tuxedo blazer from Gucci.
B84 Evening Gown - 245 Dress - S123 Dress – S413 Dress
Inspiration: The Little Mermaid
Mermaid gowns are quite famous at every red carpet event. In addition to this sophisticated style, the silhouette accentuates the feminine curve of each woman. My favorite mermaid gowns at the Golden Globe 2012 are: Kate Beckinsale looks like a million dollars with Roberto Cavalli gown, the blue gown worn by Kelly Osbourne designed by Zac Posen, Julianne Moore looked like a pro in her Chanel dress, and finally Sofia Vergara looked more va va VOOM by the work of Vera Wang.

This dress has pieces that are not asymmetrical, slightly abstract, and certainly rare to find on the red carpet event. These fashion Daredevil: Lucy Hale wore a black dress with pieces like the shape of the waves by Abazoglu Cengiz, Jennifer Lawrence wore a blue dress by Vicktor & Rolf, and finally the talk of the town Rooney Mara looked edgy with Nina Ricci gown.

Bright yellow felt like its giving fresh air at the awards show this year. Anyone dared to wear this color? Although Diane Kruger’s Prada dress was not entirely yellow, a splash of yellow-line illuminated her skin. Olsen twins’ sister, Elizabeth Olsen wore Emillio Pucci mini dress with embroidery details, and Elle Fanning looked pretty with sheer gray dress with yellow flowers embroidery. Last but not least, Paula Patton looked much younger with a touch of bright yellow.
Feather Pattern Gown – Key Hole Evening Gown – Taffeta Rose Gown
Either their hairstyles and make up that matched perfectly, or the silhouette of their gowns, or the shape of their bodies, these three celebrities performed optimally with simple (yet gorgeous!) gowns. In addition to having the perfect companion, structured Versace dress is indeed made specifically to hug every inch of Angelina Jolie perfectly. Prada strapless gown looked perfect on Freida Pinto, finally Heidi Klum looked much younger and fresh in her Calvin Klein gown. Add different color or a larger size accessory so it doesn’t look plain.

Nina Dobrev wore a sleeveless mini dress by Elie Saab.
