Anna Lynne McCord and Emmy Rossum rock their favorite jean jackets
The jean jacket trend survived through the 80s and the 90s…popped collars, acid wash rinses and all. After taking a few years off, it’s back with a stylish vengeance. No crazy cartoon characters on the back and definitely no sequins or embellishments attached. Just the good old fashioned jean coolness. The popped collars still remain but we can live with that. As always, Hollywood has caught on to the return of the jean jacket. Below, check out some stylish ladies interpreting this classic piece and putting their own spin on it. Tell us what you think of the jean jacket revival….are you ready to dig yours out of the 90s closet?

The maxi-dress has been a spring/summer staple for the past few seasons due mainly to its casual chic and comfort appeal. This spring however is pointing towards the return of the proper dress. Looks like the lady-like allure of the 50s style dress is hard to ignore. When you think of elegance, this dress style always comes to mind and thanks to designers like Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Monique Lhuillier and Muiccia Prada, it’s no doubt ready to make a statement again this season.
Style Tip: It’s all about the cut when it comes to a 50s style dress. The focal points of this style are the cinched waist and full skirt. They’re also easy to wear in the day time and can be as fancy/glam as you want them to be for going out at night. For the daytime, go for fun colors like deep orange and fun prints like floral, tribal or polka dots. For fancy evenings, try metallic colors, black or lace.

The Awards show season ended on high note at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. Stars came out in full force in their best couture and once again we’re breaking down all the red carpet action. Scroll down for a complete look at the night’s biggest trends and best dressed.
There’s no doubt red played the headlining role on the carpet. Everyone from Host, Anne Hathaway to Best Actress Nominee Jennifer Lawrence and last year’s Best Actress Winner Sandra Bullock turned up the heat in this color.

Best Actress Nominee for Winter's Bone, Jennifer Lawrence in a simple Calvin Klein
Last year's Best Actress Winner, Sandra Bullock in a corseted Vera Wang
New mom Penelope Cruz came out to support her guy Javier Bardem in L'Wren Scott
Stars continued to show their love for the “nude” trend which was all over the red carpet this award season. It’s a soft feminine look that works beautifully on almost every skin tone.
Halle Berry wore a nude Marchesa gown with a tulle train
True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld looked like a modern day princess in her age appropriate custom Marchesa gown. Kudos to the young actress for her fashion choices this awards season.
Mandy Moore also looked soft and beautiful in her elegant Monique Lhuillier gown
If all else fails, go with white…
The red carpet always has it’s “white moments” and the Oscar’s carpet was no exception.
Best Actress Nominee Michelle Williams wowed in Chanel Haute Couture
Best Actress Nominee Nicole Kidman wore a white Dior Haute Couture gown with crystal detailing
Reese Witherspoon color blocked with a little white and a lot of black in a retro chic Giorgio Armani Privé and matching retro updo
Minimalist and Metallic…
The minimalist trend was huge for fall and we saw a lot of it at the Golden Globes this year, the same goes for the metallic trend. Both Celine Dion and Gwyneth Paltrow carried on the torch.

All shades of Purple…
A pleasant surprise of the night was the many shades of the color purple on the carpet. From lilac to plum, there were so many beautiful dresses that spanned the spectrum of this gorgeous color.
One of the front runners of the night was Mila Kunis in a lavender, lace Elie Saab Couture gown
Cate Blanchett shows off her unpredictable yet always fitting sense of style in a lilac Givenchy Haute Couture gown with beaded accents and a pleated skirt
Finally! Natalie Portman looked absolutely beautiful in this violet Rodarte off the shoulder gown. Sometimes it pays to stick with what you know works and her collaboration with the Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte always works.The dress flows beautifully and compliments the pregnant star's current physique. Her retro curls finish off her look perfectly.

Scarlett Johansson goes with the trends in lace and one of the night's hottest colors
Hilary Swank in a feathered and sequined Gucci Première gown with an ombré train
Best Supprting Actress Nominee Amy Adams in a cap sleeved, sequined L'Wren Scott and Emerald Cartier Jewels. The jewelry set would have been better suited for another dress. The color unfortunately clashes with her dress and the necklace doesn't work with her dress' neckline either. Elegantly cut diamond drop earrings would have made the perfect accessories here.

Until next year….

Nudes, pastels, sequins and emerald green ruled the red carpet at Sunday’s 2011 Golden Globe Awards. While some Stars shone, other heavy hitters like Halle Berry, Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman didn’t fare so well. Here’s the low down on the good, the bad and unfortunately, the not so impressive…
Matching your skin tone has been one of the biggest trends of the season and the carpet was swarming with gowns featuring this trend. Everyone from Scarlett Johannson to Sandra Bullock, Glee’s Diana Argon and Michelle Williams took a bite out of the “nude” apple.
Scarlett Johansson channeled old hollywood glamour in a flutter sleeved Elie Saab with floral appliqué.
Sandra Bullock showed off an edgier look with her blunt bangs but softened things up in an embellished Jenny Packham dress.
Glee's Diana Argon also went soft in J. Mendel
Not so impressive in this hue…
Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester looked aged in Burberry
Nominated for her movie Blue Valentine, Michelle Williams tried to match her 60s hair cut in this Valentino gown with floral embellishments. Unfortunately, it was just a bit underwhelming for this event.
A-list Stars took a cue from the disco era trend taking over the runways and glittered on the carpet.
Anne Hathaway stunned in Armani Privé and loose waves.
The back of her dress was just as stunning.
Carrie Underwood also added some sparkle to her elegant Badgely Mischka.
Olivia Wilde went the princess route and sparkled in her black and gold Marchesa ball gown.
Unfortunately, even sequins couldn’t save these Stars…
Nicole Kidman failed to impress in this one shouldered, belted Prada gown, accessorized with a brooch.
While Desperate Housewives' Vanessa Williams (also in a one shouldered gown) made no impact at all.
Green with envy…
Emerald green was the color of goddesses on the carpet.
Catherine Zeta Jones showed us why she's Hollywood royalty in an emerald Monique Lhuillier.
Angelina Jolie also pops in this gorgeous color wearing Atelier Versace.
Mila Kunis joined A-list company in this custom Vera Wang.
Elizabeth Moss also dipped her toe in the night's hottest hue but this ill-fitting Donna Karan frock did the talented actress zero justice.
Bringing more color to the stylish carpet were some super stylish ladies…
January Jones recovered from last year's Versace Emmy bomb with another Versace (fringed), retro curls and matching lips.
Red head du jour Christina Hendricks matched her hair and showed off her killer curves in a one shoulder, body hugging Romona Kaveza.
A pleasant surprise on the carpet was The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick who stood out in a bold, marigold Emilio Pucci.
On a lighter note…
Nominees Claire Danes and Emma Stone both went the minimalist route in pastel colored Calvin Klein numbers. Megan Fox, Lea Michele and Best Actress Nominee, Natalie Portman also went the light pink route.
Claire Danes who won the Best Actress statue for her HBO movie "Temple Grandin" looked elegant in her custom Calvin Klein gown.
Emma Stone looked peachy in a simple and elegant Calvin Klein with a daring back.
Emma Stone rocked the minimalist look in Calvin Klein.
Megan Fox continued her loyalty to Armani in a blush Armani Privé gown.
While Glee's Lea Michele donned another Oscar de la Renta - It would be nice to see her switch it up a little bit from her usual taffeta choices.
Two ladies who failed to impress in Pink, Best Supporting Actress nominee Julianne Moore and Best Actress Nominee, Natalie Portman.
Julianne Moore's crumpled and wrinkled hot pink Lanvin was a complete mess.
While Natalie Portman's Victor + Rolf gown did nothing for the expectant mom. There's no excuse for that flower plus there are so many amazing designers that have beautifully outfitted pregnant Stars...Sarah Jessica Parker in Narciso Rodriguez anyone?
Pregnancy flashback: Sarah Jessica Parker looked beautiful and stylish at 7 months in 2002 wearing a gorgeous pink, Narciso Rodriguez babydoll dress.
It wouldn’t be the Globes without the prerequisite black…
Eva Longoria was stunning in a body hugging Zac Posen with a cut-out back.
Piper Parabo could have done better than this boring black dress with a shoulder bow, which just seemed oddly sized and placed. As Charlize Theron showed us in her John Galliano for Dior number in 2006, either go big or go home.
Blast from the past: Charlize Theron in the controversial Big Bow Dior dress at the 2006 Oscars.
Another hot mess…
Halle Berry who's usually flawless, bombed in this black corseted Nina Ricci gown. It was a bad mixture of a cliché undergarment / nightgown with a weirdly cut sheer train.
On to the Oscars….
