People's Choice Style: Sweet vs. Sexy Looks
SEXY: TAYLOR SWIFT
Can you say breakover? reminds ex Harry Styles what he’s missing in a plunging white Ralph Lauren Collection gown, bright Sutra earrings, a Le Vian ring, Christian Louboutin heels and the best smoky eye of 2013 so far.
SWEET: JULIANNE HOUGH
She’s a star in stars. The singer-actress opts for a dress that features, yes, shooting stars and takes the crystal-embellished, full-skirted Tony Ward Couture creation in varying shades of blue for a spin, finishing it with jewelry by Norman Silverman and Misaki.
SEXY: LEA MICHELE
The Glee doubles down on hot pink, selecting a – no shocker here – ultra-short and ultra-revealing Elie Saab dress in the girlie shade, complete with sheer lace panels and sequins, then finishes the look with Anita Ko jewels and coordinating strappy sandals.
SWEET: KATY PERRY
We’re as surprised as you are that the kept her look so simple, wearing a demure floral Valentino frock with a high neckline and long sleeves, plus purple Jimmy Choo pumps and Sylva & Cie earrings. Of course, she did jazz up the outfit with four very notable accessories.
SEXY: JENNIFER LAWRENCE
It’s Dynasty fashion meets futuristic starlet! shows off a whole lotta leg in an allover beaded Valentino Couture dress with a high slit and a sheer V-neck, completing the look with black Nicholas Kirkwood pumps and Cartier jewelry.
SWEET: SANDRA BULLOCK
The may be all business down below (her custom Vera Wang dress features a office-ready pinstripe pencil skirt), but it’s lovely on top thanks to a one-shoulder floral design. But the best part of her look? Hands down, her bright pink lips and matching Jimmy Choo heels.
SEXY: EMMA WATSON
The perks of not being a wallflower: You get to turn heads in minis like this. The actress picks up her trophy in a thigh-grazing Peter Pilotto creation with a cutout-crazy, almost skeletal-inspired top, a leather peplum, a psychedelic printed skirt and strappy Tabitha Simmons stilettos that lace up at the ankle.
SWEET: KALEY CUOCO
Without the semi-sheer overlay, we’d have put Kaley’s blush-hued Christian Siriano dress firmly under the sexy category thanks to the va-va-voom neckline. But with the feminine lace and delicate Dana Rebecca Designs jewels, she’s pure sweetness.
SEXY: NAOMI WATTS
The red carpet version of the mullet: glam in the front, whiplash-inducingly hot in the back. Naomi kicks off her busy awards season with a stunning halter gown embellished with gold paillettes and a jeweled neckline, which she accessorizes with a studded black clutch and heels by Jimmy Choo and dangling Jennifer Meyer earrings.
SWEET: CHLOË MORETZ
Do not attempt to adjust your monitor. Chloë’s ’60s-inspired neon daisy Simone Rocha mini, accessorized with nothing but a pair of simple black Casadei pumps and Smythson clutch, really is this bright.
SEXY: MORENA BACCARIN
This is the hottest Elvis impersonator we’ve ever seen! Unlike most red carpet newbies, the Homeland star doesn’t play it safe for her first big awards show, selecting a sparkling ivory Donna Karan Atelier jumpsuit, plus a Daniel Swarovski clutch, Norman Silverman ear cuffs and Rene Caovilla heels.
SWEET: RACHAEL LEIGH COOK
She’s all that! The actress makes a comeback on the red carpet in a pretty teal Oliver Tolentino sweetheart gown, plus an Ella McHugh clutch, Pelle Moda heels, a silver Neil Lane collar necklace and a messy, side-slung knot.
SEXY: HEIDI KLUM
A high pony. Snake-inspired embellishments. A cutout. One very high slit. Yep, must be . She reveals slivers of skin in an asymmetrical black gown, Lorraine Schwartz gems, Ileana Makri rings and strappy Christian Louboutin pumps.
SWEET & SEXY: JENNIFER ANISTON
Leave it to to bring the sugar and the spice with a fit-and-flare mini in smokin’ hot black leather by Christian Dior, Fred Leighton jewels and delicate ankle-strap sandals.
