2012 People's Choice Awards

Yay for awards season!!! ;)

Let's start our red carpet watch with tonight's People's Choice Awards!

The People's Choice Awards are more casual and laidback than other awards, and that's why there weren't many long gowns or huge jewels... but the stars still gave us something to talk about. ;)

Some hit the mark, while others completely missed it. :/

Let's start with my favorites of the night:

Alyson Hannigan -

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Alyson Hannigan

The glowing soon-to-be mom of two looks gorgeous in her red "Brit" beaded Alice + Olivia dress. 
She kept things simple with Vram for Gray Gallery jewels and silver pumps.

Emma Stone


She is seriously becoming one of my favorite style icons!
I think Emma found a perfect balance between laidback and formal with her tailored black trousers, bright green blazer over a crisp white blouse, and black peep-toe heels.

Ginnifer Goodwin

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Ginnifer Goodwin

Ginnifer totally makes this hot pink Roksanda Ilincic dress look fabulous.
She finished off her look with Jimmy Choo booties, a black envelope clutch by KZENIYA, and Van Cleef & Arpels earrings.

Jennifer Morrison



Is it obvious that I love Once Upon A Time? Haha. ;)
Jennifer looks gorgeous in her tasseled Oscar de la Renta dress, high bun, suede pumps, gold clutch, and drop earrings.

Ashley Benson



I think this black and white ensemble is so pretty and age-appropriate!
Ashley did a great job choosing this Alice + Olivia dress for tonight.

Let's move on to the other looks of the night:

Miley Cyrus



This ivory David Korma dress isn't my favorite, but I still think Miley looks pretty.
I like the sheer detail of the dress and there's an interesting color thing going on down by the hem.
Miley paired her dress with purple Jimmy Choo heels and a Marchesa clutch.

Julianne Hough -

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Julianne Hough

I love Julianne's hair and makeup, but I feel like this backless long-sleeved dress look has been done countless times before.

Jennifer Lawrence -

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Jennifer Lawrence

This blue ocean-inspired Viktor & Rolf creation is definitely unique, but I'm not sure I like it.
Jennifer paired her dress with black Sergio Rossi heels and jewelry from Jack Vartanian.

Demi Lovato

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Demi Lovato

I think Demi went a bit too formal with her pink silk chiffon draped strapless Marchesa gown.
Don't get me wrong, I think the embroidered bodice detail of her dress and her turquoise and pearl embroidered clutch are beautiful -- but perhaps for something like the Golden Globes?

And also, I wish she had the dress altered to give some more room in the chest area.

Lea Michele -


The back of this white hand-draped bugle bead Marchesa dress is gorgeous, but I'm not a fan of the front.
And I wish she did something else with her hair. I like her silver Jimmy Choo "Señora" heels, though.

Nina Dobrev

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Nina Dobrev

This green Elie Saab cocktail dress with lace sleeves just didn't work, in my opinion.
Her shoes and clutch didn't do anything for the ensemble either.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens

I'm kinda torn about this black sheer double halter Jenny Packham gown -- sometimes I like the gold webbed beading and sometimes I don't. Hmmm...

Vanessa completed her look with Arunashi jewelry, black satin pumps from Casadei, and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Lucy Hale

 2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Lucy Hale

The Pretty Little Liars star chose a dramatic black beaded one-shoulder Cengiz Abazoglu dress, black pumps, Baccarat ring, and Sutra earrings.

Okay, I love Lucy Hale but I don't love this look.
Maybe it would look better if we do away with the extra cloth and if we find the missing piece of her dress.

Ashley Greene -

2012 People's Choice Awards: What All the Stars Wore: Ashley Greene

I am not a fan of Ashley's but you can usually expect gorgeous red carpet looks from her. 
Ummm, what happened? Did she have a fight with her stylist or something?

This black, skin-tight, custom-made lace and leather DKNY dress is just all wrong.
She can keep her black Brian Atwood pumps and Jacob & Co. accessories, but she should've worn something else. :/

Okay, there we have it, my take on tonight's red carpet. ;)

  1. I have to agree on these with you and I noticed a lot of these dresses were almost really cool, but there were unflattering aspects to each one. I think Miley looked better than she has for a while though and I like Lea Michelle but it was a bit much in that dress.

  3. Oh~ Thanks for doing this so quickly. I like Demi Lovato's but I agree with what you wrote. I don't know Ashley Benson but I like her dress. I like it simple. I wish Jennifer Morrison's didn't have the tassles. It's a bit too curtiny for me.

  13. A lot of the ladies look really pretty here and have chosen their outfits well but I think the worst-dressed celeb of the evening was Ashley Greene. I don't know what her or her stylist were thinking!

  20. Emma Stone has incredible style. Somehow she manages to mix it up every time she steps onto the red carpet. I love that she's not too feminine and not too masculine/androgynous. She always dresses to fit her body and that's the sexiest thing she can do for herself.

  24. I think my favourite is Jennifer Lawrence or Lucy Hale but I think it would be better without the rest of the material. Thanks for showing them, I love looking at people's outfits! I think Emma Stone looks so cool yet casual too! XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.com/

  25. Hey !
    Oh, I love me some award season !
    I think Emma Stone is the best dressed of the night :)
    Ps: I actually like statement nails, but I don't wear then that much. I feel way more comfortable with darker colors!

  34. i fell asleep even before the red carpet began so I wasn't able to see all of them. But I think I like Jennifer Morrison's look the best! She looks absolutely gorgeous. It's perfect for the PCA. Not too formal but not too casual either. :D

    :)
