2013 People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet

The stars gathered together for the People’s Choice Awards, so let’s kick off this awards season the best way we know how.

This was my Fall 2012 red carpet prediction for Alexa Chung, but I’m simply thrilled to see it on Katy. Ms. Perry isn’t exactly known for her love of these classic, simple dresses in vintage-looking prints and romantic, girly silhouettes because she’s generally too busy shooting whipped cream out of her nipples. Luckily, someone talked her into this truly fantastic little black dress, complete with pockets and a super-flattering waistline. I love the little embellishments at the waist, shoulders, and neck, and even Katy’s hair and makeup are toned-down accordingly. But whoever this new hipster-chic version of Katy Perry is, I hope she sticks around.

Love the plaid, love the vest, love the shoes. This man is on a red carpet rampage and killing it every single time.

The gown is gorgeous, though I don’t love how naked it is on the sides. But the liquid-looking gold top and bejeweled neckline are fantastic, and Naomi looks absurdly glamorous. But it also kind of feels a little over the top for the People’s Choice Awards, doesn’t it?

The plunging neckline looks fantastic on her, particularly since the rest of the dress is simple and classic. The earrings are lovely, but I can’t get too worked up over T.Swift in another white gown, even if this one is much sexier and more glamorous than her usual looks.

I wish the fabric around the armpits didn’t drape quite so much, as it obscures her fantastic figure, but I love the shininess and the draped skirt and the neckline. But the long, heavy sleeves make this a little bit too matronly for someone as young and fabulous as Jennifer Lawrence. But I love the hair, makeup, earrings, and shoes, and Katniss doesn’t always get those little details right, so let’s call this progress.

The matching shoes bring this into Barbie territory, and I’m not sure this is the best color on Lea, but I do think this dress is adorable and the shoes are fun as can be.

Adorable dress, but the heavy shoes are distracting. And did she spend the whole limo ride with her head out the window? Why on earth does her hair look so terrible?

The proportions are awkward, the fit is off, and the styling is completely nonexistent, but I do like the dress itself.

Oh, Ms. Watson. This is a real disappointment coming from you. The hair is really unfortunate, that shade of lipstick isn’t your color, and that dress is just impossible to look at. I’m all for something funky and weird when the occasion calls for it, but it needs to not be completely hideous. And the shoes look similarly over-designed and unreasonably complicated.

The dress is only okay – it’s more office party than red carpet – but the world’s largest purse and the Barbie pink shoes were terrible styling choices.

What is with these D-list starlets and their compulsive need to dress up like figure skaters on the red carpet? It completely baffles me, dear readers. Unless you are named queen of your high school winter formal, there is no reason for you to wear this dress.

And this one looks like the drunkest girl at prom. Who the hell decided that the People’s Choice Awards red carpet would be doubling as a preview of what every Jersey girl will be wearing to her high school formal in 2013?

I don’t think this girly silhouette works at all in leather, particularly when it fits so poorly, and I’m fairly certain Jennifer’s been wearing those same sandals to every red carpet event for the last ten years.

Everyone loves a good cut-out, but nobody wants to look like they’ve just been mauled by a bear. It’s a fine line, Heidi. I’m sure you’ll figure it out eventually.

She’s fucking kidding me with those pants, right? And she’s not really wearing them with white platforms, is she? I don’t even know where to begin with this one. She might be a lost cause.

    I had no idea that was Katy Perry when I first saw her, she looked amazing even if a bit boring. I really like the gold detail/headband she added to her hair, it was a nice touch.
    Naomi looked nice but I feel like she was really over dressed for the People’s Choice Awards. She should have saved the gown for the Critics Choice Awards or another show. I feel the same about Taylor Swift, good, but overdressed. She should have lost the train or just shortened the dress to make it more event appropriate.
    Eddie Redmayne is indeed on a roll. If he keeps this up, he might be the best dressed of this entire awards season, male or female!
