Bare Shouldered and Brilliant: Top Trends from the 2010 People's Choice Awards

January 7, 2010 by Tara Trombetta

Every actress attending the 36th annual People’s Choice Awards got the memo: Wear a one-shoulder dress. And wear one they did. However, while asymmetrical styles reigned supreme on the red carpet, flesh tones, sparkling whites, and graphic black and white combos were close seconds. Sparkling clutches were in tow, of course, while ears and wrists were laden with gems of their own.

Here are highlights from the big night with real-world alternatives to Hollywood’s finest trends for much less:

The One-Shoulder Dress

Matte Jersey One-Shoulder Dress

Olivia Wilde wore a graceful tea-length Monique Lhuillier ball gown, but for the real world, this no-frills Matte Jersey one-shoulder dress ($69) from Victoria’s Secret is guaranteed to become your new favorite little black dress with a figure-flattering gathered top and draped skirt.

The Black and White Graphic Print Dress

Replicate Carrie Underwood’s black and white mesh look with Tory Burch’s Ivette silk-jersey wrap dress ($340). The simple shape can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

The Chunky Cuff

Although they decided to forgo necklaces, Sandra Bullock, Alyson Hannigan, Jessica Alba, and others all wore sparkling cuff bracelets to add some bling to their attire much like this knockout CC SKYE Bracelet Dynasty Chain Cuff ($124) will add some to yours.

The Strappy Platform Shoes

Mary J. Blige came out on the top of the fashion list with a taupe, one-shouldered dress, crystal-adorned epaulet, and shimmering platforms. The strappy shoe style was by far the most popular, and it easily transitions to day-to-day life with these N.Y.L.A. Bande Strappy Platform Sandals ($89.95), perfect for a night out.
