People’s Choice Awards 2010

Did any of you lovely readers watch the People’s Choice Awards?

Who were your best dressed of the night? The worst?

Here is our top 5 ‘To-Die-For’ and top 5 ‘WTF-Were-You-Thinkin


Top 5 ‘To-Die-For’

Taylor Swift wore a Jenny Packham crystal embellished strapless mini. Kudos for keeping the accessories to a minimum and letting the dress speak for itself! She looked gorge!

Although she is not one of the favorite actresses on our list, there is no doubt that Jessica Alba looked super hot in this Antonio Berardi funky mini and super sexy Burberry Prorsum Platforms! HOT HOT HOT!

Demi Lovato wore this gorgeous Jenny Packham blue ruffled strapless mini. She looked absolutely stunning. Point Finale. Love!

Mary J. Blige is looooking mighty fine in this goregous taupe dress (does anyone know who it's by??) It is very figure flattering and we looove the embellished shoulder. The Ferragamo platforms are hot and so is she!

Mariah Carey seems to be turning a leaf and dressing more ‘grown-up’! FINALLY! She looked beautiful in this white beaded Ysa Makino strapless gown. A breath of fresh air from our dear Mariah.

Top 5 ‘WTF-Were-You-Thinkin

Nicole Scherzinger wore this hideous David Meister copper halter dress. We have the same feelings about her equally hideous and waaay overdone makeup: YUCK!

Carrie Underwood took the wrong path this time around. We agree it’s a change from her usual embellished metallic dresses… but we think maybe she went a little toooo far out from her normal look with this Christian Cota dress. Her Rock & Republic strappy shoes are hot though! LOVE!

Alyson Hannigan decided to wear this wrinkled boring Rene Caovilla LBD. It’s just sooo blah. Maybe a shorter hemline &/or a statement accessory would have improved this look.

Singer Colbie Caillat showed up at the Awards Ceremony in this orange disaster! It is super unflattering and there isn’t much to else say about this horrible look. Eeeek.

Kelly Ruhterford wore this very beautiful Vintage Jenny Packam (Jenny seemed to be the designer choice of the night!). The dress is simply gorgeous but on her… its just awkward. Her boob area looks super washed out and weird. Even the gathering on the stomach is off... so not a fan.

Do you agree with our choices? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
