Last night's People's Choice Awards marked the beginning of award season, and we were more than a little excited to pore over all of the gorgeous red-carpet looks. We were treated to a few minidress moments, sexy gowns, and lots of bold color, but there were five looks in particular that caught our discerning eye. Favorite comedic movie actress winner Jennifer Aniston wooed us in a black fit-and-flare leather dress by Christian Dior, Naomi Watts dazzled in a stunning black and gold gown by Alexander McQueen, and Taylor Swift switched up her style game in a plunging V-neck white gown by Ralph Lauren finished off with blue statement danglers. Chloë Moretz showed off her spunk in a neon yellow dress — covered with sweet, semisheer daisies — by Simone Rocha, while Ellen Pompeo opted for a cream-colored draped Lanvin maxi dress finished off with a bold belt. Five lovely ladies in five equally beautiful red-carpet ensembles — which one gets your best-dressed vote?
The traditional kickoff to award season, the People's Choice Awards are known for their dressed-up, yet not stuffy, red carpet. It is, after all, a show for the people, by the people. See which stars let their hair down, and which opted for classic beauty ensembles, up close and personal now.
Glee girl Lea Michele wowed on the red carpet in a bevy of braids. Her plaits circled her head, creating a style that was part hip-hop and part party girl. A fun and unexpected pop of purple around the eyes finished off the look. Braids have been a red-carpet go-to in recent seasons, but Lea took it up another notch at the People's Choice Awards. What do you think of her braided updo, though? Is this a trend you'd like to see retired?
Heads were bobbing on the People's Choice Awards red carpet, and it was all about the hair. It seemed like the lobbed-off bob was the hair choice du jour, and plenty of celebrities were sporting the look. Julianne Hough paired her blond bob with bold brows, and Regina King kept hers coiled in curls. Olivia Munn took her hair back up around her shoulders, while Brittany Snow did hers tousled and tight. All four women opted for different ways to style their shorter cuts, but whose hair did you like best?
When it comes to award season, everyone is going for the gold statuette. But a few stars from the People's Choice Awards decided to incorporate the color into their makeup palette, too. Gold eye makeup and blue eyes complement each other perfectly, so Taylor Swift had the right idea when she swiped on an array of gold-flecked shades. Likewise, Tempestt Bledsoe wore a sheer gold dust and even added a speckle of shimmer to her burgundy lipstick to tie the entire look together. Lastly, Olivia Munn chose a metallic frosted shadow that nearly disappeared on her bronzed skin. Adding a mineral hue like gold is one way to convert barely there makeup into something red-carpet ready.
Jennifer Lawrence has her cool-girl look down, and her makeup at the People's Choice Awards was no exception. Makeup artist Jillian Dempsey's goal was to play up Jennifer's striking blue eyes in a way that was sophisticated but still playful. Smoldering, smoky eyes were perfectly offset by punchy peach lipstick.
Jillian started by swiping on Giorgio Armani's Maestro Liquid Eyeliner ($31) for a sexy, winged-out cat eye. She then blended gray and champagne hues over Jennifer's lids, finishing the eyes with several coats of Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara ($27). Baby-pink lipstick and a pop of Hourglass Sheer Cheek Stain in Peachy Pink ($45) pulled the look together. The result was an updated Bardot silhouette, ideal for a modern-day beauty icon like Jennifer.
Julianne Hough kicked off the People's Choice Awards on a bold note. Her cropped, golden hair was contrasted by bold, dark eyebrows. She kept the rest of her look polished, with inky black liner and a pop of pink on her lips. While penciled-in, look-at-me brows are a big trend for Spring, a contrast this daring is quite a beauty statement. Julianne pulls it off, but would you test-drive this trend?
