Who ever said covering up couldn’t be sexy? As a cold front overtook LA on the eve of the Golden Globes, a group of wise leading ladies took note and dressed accordingly, making long-sleeve gowns one of the night’s hottest trends. The silhouette successfully concealed some toned A-list arms and so many chose to counterbalance that by embracing more revealing elements. Kate Hudson’s stellar Alexander McQueen look was more chic than coy; the plunging neck line was both fashion forward and flattering. Jennifer Lopez is never one to shy away from attention and though there was no shortage of fabric on her Zuhair Murad dress, she still looked semi-nude. Nice work J.Lo. Eva Longoria, for her part took a page from Angelina Jolie’s book and showed off some serious leg in a slitted Pucci stunner. Nicole Richie looked quite elegant in a blue Naeem Khan lace gown, which was probably the most modest of the batch.

What a night, huh? The 2013 Golden Globes! A year’s work in movies immersed in a sea of sequins, leg slits more or less boring speeches but a lot of glamour! So many people, so many awards and not enough time to talk about them all! It seems like the night just went away in a second – I could actually watch reruns and Red Carpet flashes for hours!
I can only imagine how I’ll feel after the Oscars! But the honest truth is that I love movies. Big screen or small screen, I really love them all with unhidden, undissimulated passion. And I love the tremendous work that’s being constantly poured in, I love the oh – so talented individuals who wear their many character’s costumes all year long and for several nights, they get to enchant us all with their glam Red Carpet parade.
But tonight, what I love most was Jodie Foster. Her brilliance, her honesty, her humor, her drama, her incredible blue yes, her trademark bob, her speech and her custom made Armani blue dress!

So: we’ve seen pretty much every major dress moment from the 2012 Oscars Red Carpet. What main trend did we notice when we drew the fashion line and made the style count? Precious! Precious dresses reigned supreme on the Oscars Red Carpet this year! Having doubts? Stay with me, I’ll take you trough a very precious journey, then!
Sequins and beads, precious embroidery and metallic dresses, it was all meant to steal the eye and charm the glam fashion hearts of whoever watched the event this year. We talked about Meryl Streep’s dress, Stacy Keibler’s tin foil gown, white sequined Elie Saab worn by Milla Jovovich; we even mentioned the power pale couple: Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz and we were amazed by Jessica Chastain’s McQueen dress or Octavia Spencer’s lucky charm designer, Tadashi Shoji.

Sunday night is the 84th Academy Awards, and stars will be pulling out all the stops for their Oscars red carpet moment. The night never ever fails to bring us a handful of fashion surprises, but a single thing we can guarantee is that you will have an amazing night if you enjoy glamorous gowns!
On Sunday, team Catwalk Queen will be having a tiny Oscars party of our own, livetweeting the red carpet and updating the internet site as soon as the photos come in so you can see the gowns for oneself.
In my function as resident Oscars specialist, I usually predict what I believe folks will wear, and while they usually pull a thing new and thrilling out of the bag to prove me incorrect, it really is still fun to guess.
As we approach the middle of the madness that is awards season, we take a look at what we think makes up the A – Z of red carpet style at these big star-studded events (yes, we even found a Q and an X)…
A is for Academy Awards
The Academy Awards is undoubtedtly the biggest awards show on the red carpet calendar and thus the most glamorous. Film stars from across the globe flock to Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre to celebrate the year’s best performances, dressed in their very best couture. Designers clamour to dress nominees and presenters, as the publicity is worth millions.
It wasn’t only my first Balmain presentation; it was new head designer Olivier Rousteing’s too.
The (rather cute) designer didn’t take the Parisian fashion house too far away from its rock n’ roll roots for this Spring 2012 collection, much to the relief of Kate Moss, Rihanna and Alex Gerrard.
We saw plenty of gold-studded, fringed and embellished details on leather jackets, second-skin mini dresses, tops and short leather skirts.
These looks were presented on a colour palette of black, light-wash denim, ice white, silver and gold.

Following the figure-hugging, breast-enhancing dresses from Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2011 collection which Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Lopez fell in love with last season, Peter Dundas opted for a more free-flowing silhouette for Spring 2012.
The Pucci woman is still uber sexy but with added Latin spirit.
I envied the models as they stormed the runway wearing midriff-baring tops paired with maxi skirts, signalling that Peter’s motto for the Pucci woman is still, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.”
