Red Carpet Inspiration – Trends from SAGs and Golden Globes

My favorite part of Hollywood’s award season is spending the days after the awards shows pouring over the different red carpet looks. Although many of the designers celebrities wear on the red carpet are out of reach for us “average” girls, I always find fun in pulling inspiration from these celebrity looks and trying to find more budget-friendly alternatives.

I have a wedding coming up in March and so I’m in the market for a new dress! I took at look at my favorite dresses from the SAG and Golden Globes and found similar looks on some of my favorite sites. (I’ve done all the leg-work for you…you’re welcome!)

Racey Lacey

Lace is HUGE this year! Michelle Williams wore an adorable, coral dress that I included as one of my favorite looks. I found a way to wear this hot trend – also worn by Emma Stone, Stacy Keibler, and Jessica Biel – in a cocktail dress or formal dress.

Formal - BCBGMaxazria
Sequin in a deep V

Even in her Cherrios cheerleading uniform, Naya Rivera is pretty hot. She really rocked it last weekend at the SAG awards in this deep V sequin dress. Also in sequin this award season – Nicole Richie and Maria Menounos both wore this hot trend at the Golden Globes.

Formal - Scala via edressme.com
Ruched (and one shoulder)

Hello super duper sexy Lea Michele! She’s obviously trying to break out of her geeky, Rachel Berry shell – and WOW! She’s owning the sexpot look with that red carpet pose! I really love BOTH of these trends – one shoulder and ruched. The BCBGMaxazria formal option is totally something I would see myself wearing to the upcoming March wedding. What do YOU think?

Formal - BCBGMaxazria via Nordstrom
Baby got Back..(open back, that is!)

Clarie Danes must HATE this, but every time I see her I’m taken back to the days where she was Angela on My So Called Life. One of my absolute favorite shows…ever! Clarie always looks amazing and has fabulous style; her Golden Globes look was no disappointment. The front was gorgeous, but the back…WOW! I’m loving the cocktail dress I found from BCBGMaxazria – it actually pulls of two of the trends we’ve talked about today!

    Love all the dresses you showed! I mean, how could you not…they are all gorgeous! It’s so funny how the red carpet really is an indicator of what is or will be “hot” this coming season. My favorite options of the dresses for your March wedding is the “formal” option in the Racey lacey category. Not only is the dress beautiful and sophisticated, that royal blue color is to die for!!!! I also love the green one-shouldered ruched cocktail dress…looks fabulous!! Let us know which one you end up choosing!

      Absolutely love these looks!!! If I know you well enough I’d say your look is the racey lacey but I think all would look FABULOUS! I’m loving the Sequin these days. Never thought I’d say that because back in the day any sequin options were sorta tacky but these days I think when shown in a simple yet elegant style it can definitely be rocked!!! I’d love to see your final look!!! Please share!!!!
