Pitch Perfect premiered this week, and we have to say—we’re digging the fact that a lot of the celebs showed up on the red carpet in girly frocks! What better way to celebrate girl power and support a chick flick, right?
Brittany Snow in Georges Hobeika and Anna Kendrick in Zuhair Murad both killed it on the carpet. We’re loving Brittany’s ice blue dress—all of the detailing could make it look busy, but it really speaks to us, especially with those metallic silver pumps. And Anna’s nude dress is equal parts glam and girly with metallic swirls and a pretty waist bow. She really kicked it up a notch with sky-high strappy heels.
Both of these looks are actually making us want to see the movie now!
Claire Danes (and her baby bump), in Lanvin, Julie Bowen, in Monique Lhuillier, and Julianne Moore, in Dior Haute Couture all looked stunning in a bright marigold color that definitely stopped traffic. The color must have been lucky as each lovely lady above took home an award for their respective show/movie.
Edie Falco in Stella McCartney and E! Host Giuliana Rancic in Romona Keveza turned the simple LBD on its head in sleek black gowns with great detailing. Flattering side cut-outs and a shiny gold belt, and a super sexy slit take these gowns from ho hum to hot.
Kat Dennings, in J.Mendel, Gretchen Mol and Julia Dreyfus, in Vera Wang show us the beauty in varying shades of red. One thing all the ruby gowns had in common was their beautiful draping and ultra flattering bodices. With gowns this red hot the ladies kept their accessories to a minimum with Kat showing off wearing a luxe gold cuff and red lips, Gretchen letting her shoes shine and Julia wearing a pair of pretty drop earrings.
THE LITTLE MERMAIDS
Kelly Osbourne and Allison Williams (even Julie Bowen above) dazzled in body con dresses with fun trains. Kelly really steals the show here in what is perhaps one of our favorite looks on her yet, and Kelly being Kelly got her tresses to match.

Our absolute favorite person on the red carpet? Hands down, Gwyneth Paltrow. We love her kicky flared skirt and the heels are to die for! Olympian Gabby Douglas looked adorable as always, pairing her grey tee with faded bootcut jeans that made her legs look a mile long. (And we love her red nails!)
Katy Perry, in Elie Saab, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, in Emilio Pucci and Taylor Swift in a J. Mendel suit and Tom Ford heels surprised us last night on the red carpet for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards in really elegant looks. We’re so used to trendy and gimmicky getups that we had to rub our eyes to make sure we really watching the VMAs. In sharp contrast Katy and Miley (sporting her new radical ‘do) went dark in chic evening gowns with intricate detailing, while Rihanna and Taylor kept in bright in crisp white looks that showed off their curves.
What did you think of last night’s looks at the VMAs? Do you think all the polished and elegant looks is a new trend we’ll see in VMAs to come, or just a passing trend that is as fleeting as an artist keeping their spot in an MTV video countdown.
