From the Golden Globes to the Oscars, the biggest starlets in Hollywood have gathered together on numerous occasions in 2018 to celebrate achievements in television, film, music, production, and more. With every awards ceremony comes a glamorous red carpet pre-show, where celebrities dazzle in the latest luxury brands from Prada to Chanel. Each show brings its own variety of eye-catching trends and styles that are sure to dominate the majority of the year. From blush pinks to deep v-necks, textures to patterns, and one-shoulders to bow fronts, the celebrities know how to make a statement! Below are some of our favorite looks from this year’s Awards Season.
The Golden Globes Awards
Both Zoe Kravitz and Dove Cameron stunned in their black sheath silhouettes. Simple, yet elegant, these sleek looks are the perfect combination of effortless beauty and breathtaking at the same time. Kravitz and Cameron reinforce the statement that less is more, especially when it comes to dresses. Paired with statement earrings or a bow-tie belt, this sophisticated look makes a statement without being over the top.

Critics’ Choice Awards
These looks are minimalistic, yet elegant. Traditional shades of black or white never fail to stun, especially when worn in a classy style such as these. The red carpets are known for their bold outfit choices, but these are two looks the average person would actually consider wearing. While Hyland’s dress resembles Haute Couture, it is eye-catching enough to turns heads without distracting from her natural beauty. Dern, who opted for a sleek jumpsuit, is both refined and beautiful in her black ensemble.

A little black dress is always an appropriate outfit choice. Both Robbie and Longoria dazzled on the red carpet with their sleek dresses complete with shoulder pads or puffy sleeves. Styled with minimal accessories and a pair of black heels, these were easily two of the most sophisticated looks worn during the Awards Season by the starlets.

Kristen Bell’s deep pink dress and Yara Shahidi’s sleek black jumpsuit were two of the most breathtaking outfits on the red carpet. The rich color of Bell’s dress stands out from the crowd and compliments her soft features nicely. Shahidi’s jumpsuit is a classic, elegant look, and the trail of fabric adds a unique detail.

Independent Spirit Awards
For this event, the dresses ranged in all different colors and styles. Patterns and textures were popular elements of most of the stars’ dresses, especially Amanda Seyfried’s and Saoirse Ronan’s. Seyfried, wearing a graceful white dress with lace detailing, opted for a simple ponytail and nude heels to complete the look.There are several cutouts on the front of the dress and a high-low element on the sides but the dress is every bit as elegant as Seyfried. While Ronan’s dress is much brighter, the floral pattern and beaded neckline adds character. The statement earrings she paired it match perfectly as do her gold heels.

Haute Couture gowns thrived at the Oscars this year. From lace to floral print designs, some of the most beautiful gowns were worn to this event on March 4. Allison Williams and Mira Sorvino both wore nude dresses, which was a popular color at this awards show. While the colors of their dresses are fair, the detailing is exquisite. Williams’ dress is complete with a beaded bodice, and Sorvino’s dress is covered in fabric flowers for extra elegance. Simple jewelry and accessories were worn by both to avoid taking away from the gowns.
