Trend spotting – All hail the Greek goddess

Emma Stone attends the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in a green Grecian goddess gown with gold accessories by Lanvin

Before the “goddess” title became synonymous with Charlie Sheen’s summer antics, it actually was associated with beauty, grace and elegance. In terms of fashion, there’s a reason why the goddess style dress has endured for so many seasons. Evoking the very essence of a woman’s beauty and femininity, it doesn’t overwhelm but in fact enhances. Draped to perfection on the wearer, its simple but elegant cut is what makes it stand out. As awards season approaches, this trend will no doubt be prominent on the red carpet and stars like Jessica Biel, Freida Pinto, Emma Stone and many others have already gotten a head start on the trend.
