Red carpet fashion – 2012

Lights, paparazzi, red carpet, awards! From Filmfare of local fame to the prestigious Oscars, celebs stepped under the best possible avant-garde creations to get the look right. No matter how lengthy and boring the award functions might be, one cannot help but obsess over the red-carpet fashion. While a few celebrities got the look right, a few of them simply bombed. Let’s take a look on this season’s best and worst dressed celebrities along with some red-carpet trends that stood out.

The best had to be Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams.
And the worst dressed had to be Sandra Bullock for making even a Marchesa gown look plain and boring!
Bollywood siren Chitrangada Singh wore this tri-colour Salvatore Ferragamo gown for the Indian filmfare awards night. Actress Rosario Dawson was seen wearing the outfit for the post-Oscars Vanity Fair party. Honestly, I don’t think this multi-hued garment was even a right option for a red-carpet event.
STEEP ‘V’ : With celebrities like Charlize Theron, Rose Byrne, Naya Rivera and Bérénice Bejo of ‘The Artist’ fame sporting steep V neckline, plunging neckline proved to be one of the most popular trends on the red carpet.
Bérénice Bejo, known for her role in The Artist is seen in a Ralph Lauren Collection beaded gown, Chopard jewellery and a Swarovski clutch. Charlize Theron wore a Christian Dior Couture blush gown.
SEXY SLIT: Are legs the new clevage? Celebrities were religiously engaged in showing off their sultry leg slits!
While Jessica Biel chose to wear a white lace gown from Elie Saab Couture autumn/winter 2011-12 collection, Lea Michele showed off her legs in a Versace gown with thigh-high slit, Casadei silver heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.
MONOCHROME: Most celebrities played it safe in monochromatic look often in block colours with bold details where the actual beauty of the ensemble lies in.
Diane Lane sported the monochromatic look in a one-shouldered draped dress. Emily Blunt showed off her legs in an emerald green Oscar de la Renta asymmetric gown. Jessica Chastain’s sapphire gown from Calvin Klein collection had a sexy neckline slit!
LIGHT N WHITE: Just as the 2012 runway shows, the red carpet too witnessed a number of minimalistic yet sexy outfits in light shades of white.
Shailene Woodley dazzled in a silver beaded Marchesa gown. Priyanka Chopra was spotted in a draped Ferragamo gown at recently concluded Filmfare awards.
GREACO-ROMAN DRAPES: Effortlessly draped Greaco-Roman inspired gowns were donned by the likes of Angelina Jolie, Diane Lane, Freida Pinto,  Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu at the recently concluded red-carpet events.

    Angelina Jolie was so stylish in this year's red carpet fashion. You forgot to mention the black dress she wore showing her left leg. It created quite a big buzz. 🙂
