Red carpet recipe: the right amount of sugar and spice

With the awards show season kicking off just recently with the People’s Choice Awards on January 9th, it’s no wonder that my favorite look of that night shares a common theme with my favorite of last night’s Critic’s Choice Awards.

Sophisticated silhouette, but with a flirty peplum and a little bit of leg.  Ladylike frock, but with detail revealing a little bit of skin.  High neck lines, but sexy with cut-outs and see-through lace.  Bright prints and floral that pop against black.

Classy, as Emma Watson and Marion Cotillard never fail to be, but with just the right amount of wrong.  I like that.
