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

Posted on

It was another busy week for Hollywood: between Comic-Con, the ESPY Awards and Emmy nominations, there were plenty of stylish (and not so stylish) red carpet looks. So let’s get to it: Here are the two trends that we’re obsessing over — and one that doesn’t earn our vote.

Up: Sexy body-skimming silhouettes: Sometime less is better. Case in point: Olivia Munn‘s minimalist jersey gown, which hugged her in all of the right places. If you’ve got a killer body, why not show it off?

Up: Funky floral details: Floral prints are everywhere this season, but Kerry Washington‘s daisy-print tank made us do a double-take. It’s a subtle, yet fresh spin on the staid pattern.

Down: Big bad bow ties: We love a bow detailing on a shoe or a belt, but an actual bow tie? Not so much. Freida Pinto‘s Contrarian New York red skirt and top would have been much better off minus the neck accessory.

Want more? Take a look back to see what we think about orange dresses, the pajama look and sheer maxi skirts.
