Fashion Picks: People’s Choice Awards 2017

Last night was the annual People’s Choice Awards which means I’m back with a fashion post rounding up my favorite looks from the night! This actually works out perfectly because as I write this (Wednesday night) I’m so exhausted, so all I need to do with this post is share my favorite looks and write a little about why I like each look. No photo editing, no long post detailing what I’m wearing or what I made etc. So basically, I’m keeping this short and sweet!

Unlike more formal award ceremonies like the Golden Globes or the Oscars, the People’s Choice Awards are a little more lax so you’re not going to see as many really elegant gowns. And although it is less formal, it’s not as “crazy” as shows such as the Grammy’s or any MTV awards show. Not as low key as MTV awards shows either.

Chelsea Kane looks beautiful in this black sheer gown with a very pretty floral embroidery. I actually have a black sheer top with a similar floral design that this gown reminds me of and I love it!

I’m not entirely sure how much I love this Reem Acra gown Jennifer Lopez wore. I don’t love it entirely, but it’s also the kind of gown that you can’t take your eyes off of! The gown looks like velvet which is the on-trend material right now and I love all the nude front with jeweled detailing.

Jamie Chung is one of my favorite fashionistas! This lace gown is so pretty and fits her perfectly. I’m not sold on the color, but I still think she looks amazing!

There is something I just really love about this red midi length dress Ali Larter wore to the event. It has a fun geometric print, cinched waist, and the perfect split neckline to this strapless dress. And I love her strappy shoes!

I went back and forth with whether to include Candace Cameron-Bure because her dress struck me as a little too daytime. But like I mentioned earlier in this post, this isn’t the Oscars or a super formal event so I think the dress is actually fine. I love the little metallic floral detail and her sparkly heels!

Blake Lively can do no wrong on the red carpet and it’s nice to see her embracing her figure post-baby. I love that she wore a bustier underneath the sheer, fringed dress. It’s perfect to show off her fuller figure and some skin beneath the sheer bits of the dress without being too revealing and covering her where she probably feels like she wants to be covered as she continues her post-baby body journey.

Sarah Drew wore this fun number with black lace and cobalt blue accents. She keeps with the deep v trend in a way but the lace covers her up a bit so it’s not as revealing. I love the cobalt blue underneath the lace in the skirt and the cobalt blue trim on top which is what creates the deep v illusion.

Overall, I was pretty underwhelmed by the looks on the red carpet but I know it’s not really considered a major awards show so maybe people are waiting to bring out the amazing stuff for later. I think my favorites are Chelsea Kane and Blake Lively.

Were there any looks that you liked?
