Well, that didn't go so well did it? I was all sorts of excited for my grand return to the world of celebrity fashion blogging and counted The People's Choice Award as my first hurrah. I'm completely and utterly underwhelmed. Anyone else?
What a painfully boring red carpet. Where were the Glee girls? Where were Diane Kruger and Pacey Whitter? Where was anyone else besides the Kardashians and Taylor Swift? And so much J. Mendel it's safe to say the brand is the official spokesperson of celeb cocktail dress chic?
Ok, ok... maybe I go too far. Yes Jennifer Aniston was there - and Leighton Meester and Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman. But their sartorial choices did not make up for the lackluster red carpet. It was all nude basic colors in short cocktail dresses. For once I'm glad for the likes of Kristen Stewart and Katy Perry for injecting a little life into this Awards season kickoff.
Let's read on for what I liked, disliked and was just plain bored out of my head by at The People's Choice Awards.

Strapless, short and sexy, that was the name of the fashion game at the Couples Retreat premiere earlier this week. Perennial It's Only Fashion favorite Kristen Bell was the "bell of the ball" (dear lord I'm a nerd) in a little Marchesa number straight from the runways of Spring/Summer 2010. This was one of my favorite looks from the Marchesa presentation, but who doesn't love a little lace and with a chiffon side tail?
Now her co-star Malin Akerman went for a similarly pastel look in a yellow and nude tube dress from Thakoon. While I absolutely completely adore the draped nude skirt, I wish the top had been a more favorable color - the yellow/nude combo seemed a little off for my taste, perhaps black or even navy would have worked better and given us a less springy feel? Rounding out the dress were a pair of nude Aldo pumps. Either way the shape of the dress is incredible and on Ms. Akerman it's absolutely stunning.
