Red Carpet Trends of 2011

With the Golden Globes on the 16th January and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on the 30th, there have been some amazing frocks gracing the red carpet already in 2011. Here are the top trends and those who wore them best…

Green with Envy

Catherine Zeta-Jones :: Angelina Jolie :: Mila Kunis

The Golden Globes red carpet was littered with green this year. Catherine Zeta-Jones looked ethereal in a deep green full and voluminous gown by Monique Lhuillier. Angelina Jolie sparkled in a Sea Green Versace dress and Mila Kunis looked stunning in Vera Wang.

Fairytales and Feathers

Heather Morris :: Olivia Wilde :: Angie Harmon

The fairytale style strapless gown with full skirt was popular this season, and these ladies pulled it off with class and a bit of embelishment, be it sparkles or feathers, or both. Heather Morris (who plays Brittany in Glee) wore a gorgeous Romona Keveza gown with a feathery bust and stunning sparkled belt. Olivia Wilde shimmered in a stunning Marchesa masterpiece at the Golden Globes. Angie Harmon wore a pale pink feathered Monique Lhuillier gown with beaded bodice and looked amazing at the SAGs.

Shimmering Nude

Anne Hathaway :: Carrie Underwood :: Scarlett Johansson

It seems like the nude dress is not going out of season, and I am so pleased! However it has been glamed up a notch with crystals and sequins. At the Golden Globes Anne Hathaway sparkled in a floor length, low backed Armani. Singer Carrie Underwood shimmered in a gorgeous sweetheart necked Badgley Mischka frock with matching metallic clutch and Scarlett Johansson glistened in Elie Saab.

Pastel Pinks and Peaches

Lea Michele :: Claire Danes :: Emma Stone

Pale pinks and peaches were most ceremony goers shades of choice this year. Glee‘s Lea Michele made a statement in a one shouldered Oscar De La Renta gown. While Emma Stone and Claire Danes achieved flawless simplicity floor length in Calvin Klein dresses.

Saffron Sunset

Jayma Mays :: Sarah Hyland :: Mila Kunis :: Tina Fey

It was at the SAG awards that we saw an array of oranges and reds on the red carpet. Oranges and reds are big colours in fashion this season and these ladies have picked up on it. Glee star Jayma Mays looked lovely in peach silk chiffon with a beaded juliet sleeve by Jenny Packham. Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland looked vibrant and on trend in an orange Max Mara dress. Mila Kunis looked stunning again in an abstract print Alexander McQueen gown and Tina Fey looked fabulous in a bright red floral Oscar De La Renta number. Click here to see some of my favourite orange items on the high street this season.

Midnight Blue

Amy Adams :: Dianna Agron :: Julia Stiles

Midnight blue is navy’s classier older sister and this season it looked lavish and expensive on the red carpet. Amy Adams wore a beautiful midnight blue Marchesa gown to the Golden Globes with intricate laser cut fabric ruffles. Dianna Agron looked much more grown up than her Glee character in Vintage Chanel lace and Julia Stiles looked amazing in dip dye Monique Lhuillier.
