10 Award Season Red Carpet Trends ...


Red carpet trends vary each year.

We’ve already seen a few awards ceremonies this year, and there are a few noticeable trends popping up.

Dress styles, colours, accessories, hair styles – more often than not you’ll have a moment that will leave you thinking “hmm… that looks familiar.” These are a few red carpet trends that are already proving popular this Award Season and what we’ll probably see more of at the upcoming Oscars.

1. Red Dresses

One of the standout red carpet trends so far has been the red dress.

Plenty of celebrities have been seen sporting a red dress this Award Season.

At the recent Golden Globes, they seemed to dominate the red carpet.

From bright crimson to dark oxblood, all different shades of red are in style this season.

2. All Black

Black is often seen as a ‘safe’ choice on the red carpet but that doesn’t make it any less fashionable.

From Amy Poehler’s black pantsuit on the Golden Globes red carpet to Jennifer Lawrence’s black cut out gown at the Critic’s Choice Awards, there are plenty of fresh takes on all-black dressing this Award Season.

3. Mermaid Style

Fishtail gowns scream of Old Hollywood glamour, which is probably why they’re a favourite on the red carpet.

Amy Adams, Jessica Alba, and Kelly Osbourne all wore mermaid-esque fishtail gowns to the Golden Globes, which is usually a good indicator of what we’ll be seeing at the upcoming Oscars.

4. Nearly Nude

Nude dresses, sheer panels, and cut outs have left little to the imagination on this year’s red carpets.

Whether it’s Amanda Seyfried’s beautiful blush gown or Kerry Washington’s sheer panelled dress at the Golden Globes, the key to making this trend work is to work a demure, feminine angle.

5. Evening Embellishments

Embellishments are everywhere right now.

And really, what’s a red carpet without a little bit of bling?

From subtle gold embellishments a la Nicole Kidman at the Golden Globes to all out sequins on Naomi Watts at the People’s Choice Awards, embellishments are a guaranteed way to shine on the red carpet.
