Aside from the gorgeous ladies who went with gowns that feature prints, pastel colored gowns and shimmer-heavy dresses, there are those who took to the classics and opted for white, black, a mix of black and white or metallics… and those who braved wearing mixed media. Check out what Olivia Munn, Ellen Pompeo, Carrie-Anne Moss, Kristin Kreuk, Sandra Bullock, Emma Watson, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lawrence, Rumer Willis, and Heidi Klum wore to the 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards Wednesday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.
First up are the Olivia Munn, Ellen Pompeo, and Carrie-Anne Moss… who played with black and white to the event…
Olivia Munn was a bit on the casual side, as the TV host-turned actress wore a Carolina Herrera ensemble (from the Resort 2013 collection) that included a sleeveless white top with a keyhole at the back and black shimmering sequins embellished into a pair of vertical stripes at the bodice. She also wore the matching tiered skirt with lace overlay and black and white prints, before finishing off with a black pair of Christian Louboutin “New Simple” platform pumps.
“Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo looked very comfy in her beige-y, pastel yellow Lanvin gown (from the Resort 2013 collection) designed with long sleeves (but folded into three-quarter lengths), a v-neckline, and pleated floor-length skirt with a central slit, before she paired it with a black leather waist belt. Underneath the gown, Ellen wore a pair of Christian Louboutin “Epoca” pumps. She also accessorized with gold and orange Lanvin box clutch (from the Spring 2012 RTW collection), a Jennifer Meyer pendant necklace, and Sydney Evan gold jewelry.
Carrie-Anne Moss was dressed in all-black, but accessorized in plenty of white pearls. The “Matrix” star wore a black sleeveless velvety knee-length dress, which she paired with black knee-high heeled boots. If not for the tiered necklaces with off-white and gold pearls, Carrie-Anne would’ve looked like a dominatrix. But we actually love how she contrasted her ensemble with classic accessories.
Kristin Kreuk, Sandra Bullock, and Emma Watson chose dresses with different textures and mixed media.
Kristin Kreuk accepted the “Favorite New TV Drama” award with co-star Jay Ryan for their show “Beauty and the Beast.” The 30-year-old actress wore a two-toned Jean Fares dress designed with a one-shoulder peach top (with a big bow on the shoulder, an open back) and a gold sequined knee-length skirt with a stone-embellished lacy belt. She accessorized with an Blumera clutch and off-white peep-toe pumps.
Sandra Bullock looked amazing in a custom-made Vera Wang dress with a strapless asymmetrical bodice made of blue and black floral lace tucked into a black pencil skirt with grey pinstripes. She also accessorized the dress with a thin black leather belt, before finishing off with a pair of vibrant pink Jimmy Choo “Anouk” pointed-toe pumps to match her pink lips.
Emma Watson went with a bold mixed media dress from Peter Pilotto’s Spring 2013 collection that included a black sleeveless top with cutout details, a woven leather peplum, baby pink neckline and white pearls embellished all throughout the bodice. The skin-baring dress also included a mini skirt with a colorful print and black banded hem. Emma finished off her look with a pair of black Tabitha Simmons “Bailee” lace-up sandals.
Black dresses with metallic accents are always a staple on awards show. This year, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lawrence, Rumer Willis, and Heidi Klum stepped onto the red carpet in metallic-accented black dresses.
Naomi Watts wore an Alexander McQueen gown (from the Resort 2013 collection) that featured a shimmering halter bodice with a Swarovski crystal neckline, illusion panels connected to the open back and a black floor-length crepe skirt. Underneath the gown, Naomi paired it up with Jimmy Choo heels, a gold-stud embellished Jimmy Choo black clutch and Jennifer Meyer earrings.
Jennifer Lawrence showed off her glam side as she opted for a Valentino dress (from the Fall 2012 Couture collection) that aged her terrible thanks to the black and silver sequins and sheer neckline, draping on side of the skirt and long sleeves. The shoe choice was gorgeous though – she wore a pair of black Nicholas Kirkwood satin pumps with bejewelled platforms, before accessorizing with Cartier onyx and diamond drop earrings and a matching Cartier “Caresse D’Orchidées” ring.
Rumer Willis sparkled on the red carpet with an Alice + Olivia gown (designed by Stacey Bendet for the Fall 2012 collection) that featured diagonal stripes of shimmering paillette embellishments in black and silver, an open back, cap sleeves and a floor-length hem. The sparkles didn’t stop there – Rumer also accessorized with a silver box clutch, before adding a contrasting pair of sapphire drop earrings.
Heidi Klum showed off her legs in a black Julien Macdonald gown (from the Spring 2013) that featured cut-outs all around, a central slit on the floor-length skirt, and an asymmetrical neckline with metallic embellishments that are also seen as edges for the cutouts. She went with black accessories as well, starting with a pair of sexy Christian Louboutin “Crosspiga” stilettos and onyx Lorraine Schwartz earrings.
