Our Favorite 2018 Awards Season Looks

by

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.

The Producers Guild of America Awards

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.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards

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. Another set of simple looks paired with subtle accessories or a deep shade of lipstick that reinforce natural beauty.

The Grammys

Camila Cabello and Hailee Steinfeld walked the red carpet in bold pops of color. Vibrant colors always stand out against the crowd, especially bold reds or purples. Both Cabello’s and Steinfeld’s dresses feature flattering cut outs on either the front or the side of the dresses and show off their curves nicely. Cabello paired hers with a disco ball clutch and Steinfeld wore purple pointed toe boots for an added flair.

The British Academy of Film and Television Academy Awards

Both Angelina Jolie and Emma Roberts were stunning in their classic black dresses. Jolie, in her elegant bardot style dress made of velvet, captured the crowd’s attention with her beauty. Paired with simple black heels and statement earrings, her simplicity is timeless. Roberts, in a low-cut black couture dress, has a slit on the side similar to Jolie’s dress. She also choose simple black heels and statement earrings to complete the look without taking away from the dress. The stars wore black to this event to stand in solidarity with the Time’s Up Movement, which provides support to those who have experienced sexual harassment.

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.

The Oscars

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.

4 Awards Season Fashion Trends for 2018

by

Although the year is still young, there have already been a handful of award shows. But before the moving speeches and celebratory awards are received, the public’s attention is directed towards the latest in celebrity fashion. Each show brings the biggest names in Hollywood, and the biggest designers and trends along with them. Shades of black and pink, textures, patterns, and low-cuts are among some of the trending styles this season. Check out some of the trending looks from January’s award shows below!

 

Black

This year, the Golden Globes attendees were sleek and stylish in their dark ensembles. Black is both effortless and elegant, and it just so happens that every single celebrity in attendance wore black to this event, which is more than coincidental. Besides for a classic look, celebrities used this opportunity to express their disapproval of the sexual harassment unfolding both inside and outside of Hollywood. Aside from the hidden meaning, the stars were eye-catching in black. The perfect blend of fierce and fabulous, the most classic shade was worn to make a statement.

Textures

The Critics’ Choice Awards represented the latest in textures. Trends in textures became apparent as celebrities walked the red carpet in the latest sequins, feathers, and lace. Quite the contrary to the Golden Globes, the trending styles during this awards show were much more vibrant and unique. From Angelina Jolie’s angelic white dress with the feathered top to Gal Gadot’s low-cut sequin dress, the stars knew how to catch the public’s attention.

Patterns  

The Producers Guild of America Awards brought out the most unique styles. The dresses worn to this event were vibrant, eye-catching, and bold. Patterns were an apparent trend as the celebrities walked the red carpet just a few days ago. Stars such as Kerry Washington and Leslie Mann opted to walk the runway in bold, floral print dresses. Floral print and embroidery are trending this season, and the stars are proving these patterns can be worn in more than one season.

Pinks

The Screen Actors Guild Awards also saw a rise in floral patterns, sequined-textures, and blush pinks, a color that is becoming more commonly worn. Blush is now a color worn during more than just spring and summer, especially with the help of celebrities who are making it more universal. Most celebrities who appeared on the red carpet opted for a soft, dainty look to this event, which contrasted several of the other awards shows previously held this month.

The Best Beauty Looks from Awards Season

by

Hands down, awards season is one of our absolute favorite times for the Cliché family—besides NYFW, of course. It’s a moment made not only for well-deserved recognition, stellar red carpet looks, and who’s bringing who as a plus one chatter, but it’s also a moment frozen in time for the best beauty looks we will spot all year. We gain so much inspo while tuning in right at home for makeup to do’s to the next, you know, red carpet we’ll be seen in…i.e. the next wedding we’re invited to. But let’s be honest: you don’t need a fancy awards show invitation to appreciate the goddess-like makeup we see presented. Nor do you even need a reason to try them out or create your own makeup look inspired by them! We’re all for being glammed up with nowhere to go. Just catch us on the couch with a bottle of wine and an episode of Gilmore Girls playing; we’ll give you an award just for the pure fabulousness of it. With that all being said and done, we’re rounding up the best beauty looks from this year’s awards season that we can all continue to be in awe of until the next awards season.
