The 2011 awards season started off with a bang at the 36th Annual People’s Choice Awards. Held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Jan. 5, the show was hosted by Queen Latifah and was full of fun, surprises and high fashion. Alll of your favorite celebs were there, dressed in their ‘Sunday best’. Between the gorgeous gowns, glitzy jewels, sky-high heels and makeup and hair done to perfection, celebrities looked so amazing we completely missed who won what! We combed through the event photos to bring you the best looks of the night, from the red carpet to the stage:
Taylor Swift looked simply sweet in a peach colored, flared minidress. The J. Mendel frock hit just above the knee and featured a pleated skirt and a bodice with nude cutouts. She accessorized with nude Prada heels, Amrapali earrings, Neil Lane bracelets and a bright red lip.
Selena Gomez stunned in a strapless, multicolored butterfly-print Irina Shabayeva gown. The dress had a tiered hem with a tulle underlay, letting her show off her legs and strappy gold Christian Louboutin sandals. She wore large Polki Allure mirrored gold hoops by Isharya, a 14K gold and sterling silver bracelet by Vahan Jewelry and the “Melange” diamond, pink quartz, rose de France amethyst, citrine and garnet ring by Brumani.
Host Queen Latifah had multiple dress changes, one of which was a beautiful hot pink, one-shoulder gown with a curved, jeweled neckline. She accessorized with a M.C.L. by Matthew Campbell Laurenza large stone pearled pave bangle on each wrist, and matching M.C.L. by Matthew Campbell Laurenza pave flower chandelier earrings.
Kim Kardashian got glam in a short and sparkly strapless Malandrino frock with an 18k gold square link necklace by Rina Limor. She and sis Kourtney both wore nude, patent leather Christian Louboutin platform pumps on their feet.
Kristen Stewart accepted an award on stage wearing a Reem Acra Spring/Summer 2011 pink sequin cocktail dress paired with a wide brown belt and heels. Her only accessory was a head full of beachy waves styled hair, courtesy of Adir Abergel at Frederic Fekkai.
Virginia Williams (How I Met Your Mother) wore a back-baring Oday Shakar sequin chiffon cowl back dress. The fitted rose-colored frock shimmered and she paired it perfectly with sky-high nude heels. Baccarat “Pampilles” silver Mordore earrings and a Brumani “Candy Rose” ring in white gold with diamonds and smoky and pink quartz ring accented her look.
Leighton Meester rocked a unique grey silk chiffon and cotton Vionnet dress from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The short frock featured multicolored floral embroidery, sheer panels and a yellow georgette lining. She paired it with orange drop earrings by Cathy Waterman and Brian Atwood patent pumps.
A tad too tanned Ashley Tisdale wore a gorgeous, strapless print dress by Farah Angsana. Though her tan almost matched the color palette of the dress, it fit her perfectly and the floor length gown added a touch of elegance.
