Best and worst red carpet dresses of 2012

8 Mar

The red carpet season has just climaxed with The Oscars, so many stunning couture dresses and some great styling disasters!

THE TRENDS

There have been some trends going on this year. They have been carried off in some of the most amazing designs I have seen. Here are some of the dresses showing the looks on the red carpet for 2012. Done right and done so wrong

WHITE

This years award for colour of choice has to go to… white! There has been so many beautiful gowns in white but these have to be my favourite

BLACK

This is how to wear classic black but still stand out from the crowd. These dresses show that no matter shape or size, picking the right cut and keeping it simple can make you look sexy and classy.

Black isn’t always a safe option, these celebs show how playing safe isn’t always right.

Too much! these metallics unfortunately are bordering on cheap. Ever heard of less is more?

BLACK BELT
A clean silhouette and natural coloured dress nipped in at the waist by a dark coloured belt to create that hour glass shape. Beautifully simple, but still wow.

There were other colours hitting the award ceremonies but the jury is still out on some of these bold colour choices

ORANGE

Soon to be this seasons new colour. If your going to wear it, try and get it right. These ‘A’ listers showing they are nearly there. Cameron Diaz getting it just right in this Vicoria Beckham dress. But not sure on Fergies choice on teaming it with black ‘Bridget Jones’ knickers quite works for me.

BLUE

Oh dear, these dresses are all wrong, some great design ideas but the colour and over use of pattern turn them into a fashion disasters and can tie dye ever look good? unless your campaigning to save the forest.

GREEN

When picking a colour to wear, pick the right shade to match your skin tone. Some shades of green can make you look washed out. Not quite sure these celebs have it quite right.

These ladies in red look like they are going to a fancy dress party not the oscars! with elements of the 50s and 80s.

RED FLORAL

These celebs are taking us back to the 90s, not quite sure we are ready to back there yet.

PURPLE AND MAUVE

A fabulous colour for olive and darker skin, these Hollywood stars look fabulous in these purple shades

This model and reality star show how beautiful and still glamourous a pregnant woman can look. Hot mamas to be
