As one of the 2012 major red carpet events, the 69th Golden Globe Awards definitely had a good beginning. From hairstyles to beauty makeup to various styles of jewelry, all celebrities were so glammed up. But what was the most impressed? Of course–the prom dresses that made stars stepping up the red carpet. Inspired by this great event, here I would like to show you some prom dresses trends in 2012.
Mermaid Prom Dresses
Unlike A-line prom dress and ball gowns, fishtail or mermaid prom dresses are a classic way for ladies to highlight a feminine silhouette and show off enviable curves. Obviously, they have been almost ubiquitous on the Golden Globes red carpet. Actress like Paula Patton, Kate Beckinsale, Rooney Mara, Elle Macpherson, Reese Witherspoon and Tilda Swinton all looked fabulous on mermaid dresses（ball gown dress 2012）.
Nude Hues Prom Dresses
Back to the 2010 color spectrum, nude shade was a big trend while soft nude hues have been an A-list favorite all the way through 2011 and into 2012 with no sign of stopping. From Jiuliana Rancic’s nude high collar dress to Katherine Mcphee’s strapless knee length mermaid dress to Jessica Biel’s nude slit prom dress, quite a slew of celebrities seemed to be obsessed with this color on Golden Globes red capet.
However, they worn this color in a totally different way. While last year’s nude tones were accompanied by glitter and sparkle, prom dresses 2012’s are a far more muted affair, coupled with statement jewels such as Heidi Klum’s stylish blue necklace matching her neat nude dress, or the pretty capped sleeves dress worn by Julie Bowen, or a chunky gold bangle opted by Kristen Wiig to go with her backless nude dress.
Black and White Prom Dresses 2012
Black and white dress is a classic combo and it became firm favourites with the red carpet crowd this year. Claire Danes in J. Mendel, Best Actress-winning Kate Winslet all worked the trend to perfection. The interesting thing was that these actresses showed how to use it to their advantage. Kate wore black on top and white on bottom to minimize her bust while Clair threw in a backless black prom dress to show her curve. They really combined the two colors to have a monochrome moment at the awards ceremony.
