The Stars Turn Out In World’s Best
Red Carpet Fashion

It may be cold outside (at least, in our part of the world), but it’s blistering hot inside-  on red carpets from New York to Los Angeles and beyond-  and as varied as The American Music Awards, Elle’s Women in Television Celebration, and the big momma of them all thus far, the always whimsical Golden Globes. It’s make it or break it time for artists and especially for the stylists to the stars, since as we all know, these shows are not really about who wins the most awards. These days, celebrities are graded on their looks, and every detail of their wardrobe, from head to toe, is scrutinized, identified and discussed by fashion police and millions of viewers, with the report cards put on public display for all TV and Internet users to see.

This year’s fierce competition had many women choosing to show some serious skin, while others chose to stand out in other ways, some perfectly gorgeous and others, simply ridiculous. And as always, many were accompanied by major bling.

Following are some of our favorite trends from this year’s award show season so far!
Rosie Huntington and Halle Berry
Trend 1. The Mile-High Thigh Slit
After all the attention that Angelina’s right leg got last year, it’s no wonder other gams have been stepping out into the limelight.

Trend 2. Nearly Naked
Stars of all ages can make an impression on the red carpet by showing off their hot bods. We’ll admire their hard work... then we’ll go get a cheeseburger.

Trend 3. She’s Super Greek-y
How do you make the Grecian goddess look more interesting? With cleavage-cutouts and more leg-slits, of course!

Jenny McCarthy and Elisha CuthbertTrend 4. Trophy Gold
Maybe these stars thought that dressing like a trophy would cause them to bring home an actual one.

Kelly Osbourne and Emmy Rossum

Trend 5. Sheer, My Dear
These girls know that a bit of sheer between the shoulders leaves something to the imagination, and that can draw just as much attention as some lesser-clothed counterparts.
