It was another week full of parties (Chanel!), premieres (Rock of Ages!) and award shows (MTVs and CMTs!) so let’s break down which red carpet trends caught our eyes — and the looks we’re so tired of seeing. Here’s what’s hot (and not) this week:
Up: Disco ball dresses. If you’re going to go to a glam Hollywood event, then you should dress the part … which means over-the-top sequined dresses are absolutely encouraged! We’re obsessed with Carey Mulligan’s metallic paillette Prada number and the blinged-out silver Randi Rahm mini Carrie Underwood wore to the CMT awards.
Up: Crazy colorful kicks. Here’s a shoe trend we can get on board with. Fergie‘s hot orange pumps take her look to the next level — and a bright, bold shoe is totally warm-weather appropriate.
Down: Calf boots with minis. Last week it was turtleneck dresses, this week it’s clunky footwear — what’s with these ladies who don’t embrace summer? Kim Kardashian‘s dress would have been much better off if it was paired with minimalist heels rather than her mid-calf boots. We’re shocked her beau (and self-appointed fashion critic) Kanye West would let her commit such a fashion faux pas.
