WHO WORE WHAT?.....2012 People's Choice Awards Trend Alert: Leather Dresses

LEATHA Time! If there was one trend we could latch onto from last night's People's Choice Awards 2012 Red Carpet--other than the "anything goes" from Krazeee to Klassy-looking ensembles we saw, it would be LEATHER. Several ladies wore leather on the red carpet (it's been nippy at night here in LA as of late!). Here are examples: Kristen Bell in Valentino Spring 2012: The proverbial "leather and Lace" combination came up on Kristen Bell in the form of this very feminine red dress from Valentino Spring 2012, featuring a fitted lace and chiffon overlay top section and half-circle A-line shaped red leather attached skirt. I like the dress and those gold-creme heels. It's just the messed-up hair that troubles me. This is where non-fashion/non-hair expert people say "Someone actually got PAYED to do that hair style?"...and kids, I have to second that. Ashley Greene in DKNY: Greene stars in the new ad campaign so naturally, she is wearing DKNY. Again, it's (wait for it): leather and lace! Yes, kids. This time, it's a very form-fitting black dress with a flared skirt panel. It's very "Sexy Morticia"! And I'm happy that her hair looks flawless; clean, soft, and healthy. Maybe Kristen Bell should switch to Ashley Greene's hair stylist. Pronto. Elisha Cuthbert in Vawk: Vawk is a brand based out of Toronto, Canada and designed by Sunny Fong. Elisha is Canadian and therefore, it's nice she was wearing a fellow countryman's design. The gown features a gold leather/lace strapless bustier with a black silk chiffon full skirt. It's very "Wonder Woman" Linda Carter don't ya think? In other words: Me likey.

I can't say I'm on board with this combination yet. The closest is Elisha but while I love the top, the skirt just doesn't seem right for it (too plain maybe)?
I think that the leather in general is just too heavy next to the lace so it's more jarring?

Nick...Vawk is run by Mr. Sunny Fong. So he cannot be a fellow Canadian-Woman of Elisha. He won the Project Runway Canada season 2. But I still love anyhow!
