Red Carpet Trend Report: What's Sizzling and What's Fizzling

Posted on

The summer movie premieres — Ted, Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D — just keep on coming, which means more awesome (and not so awesome) red carpet looks from our favorite celebrities! While most ladies brought their fashion A-games to work this week, there’s always one bad apple to spoil the bunch. So let’s see what we’re loving — and what we’re so over — in fashion today:

Up: Sexy sheer panels: Mila Kunis mastered the art of sexy and sweet thanks to her sheer, plunging Dior peplum mini. A see-through panel is a great way to show some skin without revealing too much.

Up: Matchy-matchy shoes and dresses: Pick a color and stick with it — just like Katy Perry did. We’re loving the pop star’s matching Dolce & Gabbana crimson ’50s-inspired dress and pumps. (Her nearly $500,000 in bling isn’t so bad, either!)

Down: Minis with maxi overlays: This trend falls in the same category as mullet dresses: we’re over it! Our theory is if you want to wear a mini, then wear a mini. If you want to wear a maxi, then wear a maxi. Choose one or the other; no need to combine, ladies. (We’re talking to you Diane Kruger!)

For more trends that we’re loving — and breaking up with — read our thoughts on floral headbands, neon and colorful shoes.
