The 2011 Awards Season is underway. It begun with The Peoples’ Choice Awards on 6th January, The Critics’ Choice Awards and 68th Golden Globes will soon follow and the end of January will see the Screen Actors Guild awards.
But it is February that will hold the big hitters in the award world – The BAFTAS and the 83rd Academy Awards – 14th and 28th respectively.
I as a fashion lover enjoy the delights and frights of the red carpet, there are always headline grabbing style hits and fashion faux pas. Who can forget Bjork’s swan dress or Celine Dion wearing a white trouser suit backwards with a matching white fedora? Or Gwyneth Paltrow following her pink Ralph Lauren gown in 1999 with an Alexander McQueen sheer mesh top and black skirt that was, lets just say, less than flattering?
The hits – Sharon Stone in a white Gap shirt worn with a Vera Wang skirt that she claimed was a last minute decision. I don’t believe that but it worked and she looked fabulous. As did Halle Berry in 2002 when she accepted her award for Best Actress wearing a stunning Elie Saab gown with a deep red skirt and sheer embroidered bodice (are you taking notes Gywneth?)
I’m looking forward to seeing what this year will bring…
Floor sweeping classic black or bold tropical prints?
Flowing metallics or bold colour?
Pastel ruffles or jewel coloured drapes?
