Red Carpet trends seen at the People’s Choice Awards & Golden Globes

With the New Year kick starting with numerous award events with People’s Choice Awards and Golden Globe Awards being held at start of the year. Glamorous gown, jewels and beautiful ladies walked down the red carpet looking ‘like a dream come true’. Designers got a chance to dress up stars in their best offerings this season. This is where the latest trends come to life for the rest to follow.

At People’s Choice awards, the ladies were dressed more casually giving way to the knee-length & Cock-tail dresses, The Golden Globes was more of a formal event with the screen Goddesses all dressed in alluring gowns. 

‘Borrow it Bindaas’ takes you through the latest fashion trends on the red carpet where the celebrities make a fashion statement with their attire. 

Minimal Mesh details

If last season was all about Lace, this season it was mesh detailing which was in vogue at the red carpet events. One got to see dresses with mesh work prominently at the People’s Choice Awards. The detailing was kept to the minimum for that subtle look like mesh used on shoulders, to show off the cleavage, on the sleeve or to enhance the décolletage. If you want to work this trend at your next party, just remember that ‘Less is more’ when it comes to using a tricky fabric like mesh.

Make way for the Feathers

Feather details at the hemline are ‘big’ this chilly season. People’s Choice Awards had celebrities work this trend in short Cocktail dresses whereas Golden Globes saw the celebrities wear this trend in a gown. The focus was more on this part of the detail work and other embellishments were kept to the least. You can work the feather detailling in a Cocktail dress or feather clutch for the evening and wear them while trying on feather earrings for daywear.

Mermaid style

A Mermaid silhouette beautifully contours a woman’s body from the chest till the knees and further flares up at the hemline giving an illusion of an hour glass figure. The upper part is usually designed in corset form, this style is best suited for slender body frame. This style is often combined with sweet-heart necklines as seen above. Comfort is the ‘Keyword’ here if you want to wear this silhouette at a big event since this one can be a difficult to handle. Mermaid style Lehengas are already a rage in India, so try one for an Indian wedding.

‘Satin’ has the Glam Quotient

Nothing compares to the soft, silky feeling of satin when you have to look your best at any red carpet event. This fabric does it all like flatter your figure, give you a comfortable feel yet look absolutely stunning. But the cut and the fit of this silhouette are the important if you wanna flaunt satin as it will give away the slightest flaw. Truly loved the way Angelina carried off a two-tone satin gown at the Golden Globes.

Jewelry worn as detail work

It is usual to combine jewels and silhouettes together but Jewelry worn as an embellishment is the new mantra. You can add in a diamond brooch, as a belt buckle or a bright neck piece on a plain color gown as an embellishment. Work wonders by making a piece of jewelry look like a silhouette embellishment. Try combining a necklace on a plain silk saree in darker hue to add a touch of glamour.
