Red Carpet Fashion of 2011- Part I

Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj have started a wave of bold, futuristic fashion on the red carpet. In contrast to recent years, during which the style featured more subdued, vintage gowns and minimal jewelry, celebrities are beginning to branch out towards brightly colored, distinctive gowns with accented shoulders and sleeves.

“Artists are starting to dress much more crazy, more out there and it has a ripple effect on fashion,” explains designer Marc Bouwer. “While you won’t see a Lady Gaga outfit necessarily on the Oscar red carpet, you will see more architectural styles- an expanded shoulder, a pronounced sleeve. The stronger power woman has emerged, and you cannot ignore that trend.”
