AMAs 2014: This Year's Red Carpet Was All About the Rear View

Nov/23/2014 at 09:24 PM ET

There was a whole lot of sexy happening on the American Music Awards red carpet Sunday night. From plunging to high-slit, stars found plenty of bold new ways to show skin. But one trend we saw again and again: Dresses that were sassy from the front — and stunning from the back. Check out a few of our faves below.

Is Victoria Beckham Vying for Princess Kate's 'Gown Rewear' Crown?

Nov/18/2014 at 12:14 PM ET

Do you think Victoria Beckham is pulling a sartorial prank on us? We say this because it seems too strange to be true: Almost exactly one year ago (362 days ago to be exact), Victoria Beckham stepped out in a gown from her eponymous line at the Bambi Awards in Berlin, and accessorized with stunning emerald earrings and a ring. So when looking at photos of last night’s Global Gift Gala in London, we got red carpet déjà vu.

Nov/14/2014 at 09:16 PM ET

Shailene Woodley’s birthday isn’t until Saturday, but she’s putting on her party dress early: The actress selected a cleavage-baring, sheer-sleeved, starfish-covered (yes, that’s right, starfish) Valentino gown for the Hollywood Film Awards Friday night.

Jennifer Lawrence: 'I Used to Wear Clothes My Mother Dug Out of Yard Sales'

Nov/11/2014 at 05:46 PM ET

Jennifer Lawrence has long stunned on the red carpet (remember her amazing first Oscars dress in 2011?!), but she tells French magazine Madame Figaro this month she wasn’t always into the glamour. 

“I hated dressing up for my first red carpets, because I never felt comfortable in these glamorous dresses,” she shares.

And growing up in Kentucky riding horses didn’t exactly lend itself to encyclopedic knowledge of high fashion. “In Louisville, when I was a child, I inherited clothes from my two older brothers [Ben and Blaine] that I put together with things that my mother dug out of yard sales,” she says. “I was a true tomboy.”

It Takes Two to Spice Up a Red Carpet: Our Favorite Couples Looks of the Week (Including, Yes, the McConaugheys)

Oct/24/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

It’s pretty much standard practice at peoplestylewatch.com to basically ignore the man on the fashionable female star’s arm and focus on the fabulous dress and amazing jewelry (have you seen Last Night’s Look?). But three photos came across our desks this week that made leaving out the guy practically unlawful. The ladies looked beautiful on their own per usual, but the addition of their dapper dudes’ digs (and even matching facial expressions!) made these ensembles doubly sweet.

Camila Alves-McConaughey and Matthew McConaughey: Alves has long been a master of creating looks that correlate with her husband’s (before the Oscars she said that she didn’t want to wear a super show-stopping gown because she wasn’t a nominee) without feeling like she’s playing second fiddle. At the American Cinematheque Awards in Beverly Hills, McConaughey was being honored, and she picked a Dolce & Gabbana gown which showed no skin, yet was still slinky and sexy. McConaughey, who is an ambassador for the line, opted for one of their tuxes with a velvet blazer with satin lapels .

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz: When some pregnant ladies hit the red carpet, it’s all about showing off the bump. But for the Angel Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in N.Y.C., Keys decided to keep the focus on her accessories and her beauty look: Her high-neck black gown stood out thanks to a dramatic statement necklace and she tried a playful yet glamorous winged eyeliner. Like his wife, Swizz  chose to make his neck the focal point of his seemingly classic tux look, ditching a bow tie in favor of  graphic black accents on his collar. Keys referenced their adorableness at the event on Instagram, writing, “I love how we flow! Natural & simple.”

Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl: Their picture-perfect wedding was just one of many examples of just how well this couple cleans up. More than one editor here screen-grabbed this photo of their casual but polished looks for the Ghurka Woman handbag launch in N.Y.C. to send to our significant others. Note to guys: We already know what to wear for fall (thanks to Olivia on more than one occasion), but this is how you should be dressing.

Tell us: Do you coordinate looks with your boo? Which couples’ style is your favorite?

Lindsay Lohan Has Stepped Up Her Fashion Game Recently, No?

Oct/14/2014 at 06:30 PM ET

Sometimes you just want to give a celeb a high five to let them know they’ve been dressing well recently. So here’s ours: Lindsay, your style is improving. High five!

Now that she’s a serious actress in London’s “Speed-the-Plow” and, by all accounts, showing up for work and being polite to people involved, we’re moving on from this lace sunglasses moment (to be fair, she was leaving a Mardi Gras-themed party), and are focusing on her newly demure head-to-toe black looks and one not-too-body-con sparkly frock.

For the 59th annual Women of the Year Lunch (left), Lohan opted for a dress with a structured shoulder and buttoned-up pointy Petr Pan collar that elevates it past basic LBD and timeless black pumps. Poof! Businesslike and ladylike, perfect for a lunch surrounded by “women of the year.” For the red carpet at the event (center), she added a simple black coat to the dress and belted it, adding some length to the mini hemline.

Editors are divided on Lohan’s choice of a glittery Givenchy long-sleeved dress for the press night after party for her play. It’s show-stopping without being too-clingy, and the at-the-knee length makes this look more stage siren than country pop sensation. The similarly sparkly heels are a bit too matchy-matchy, but if you choose the same dress as Naomi Watts has worn, you’re doing something right, stylewise.

She’s also bringing some more sophisticated looks to her Instagram — case in point:

The hemlines are longer, the heels more tasteful, and the accessories? Understated. Lindsay, keep up the good work!
