~ Below are a few red carpet trends I've spotted. See for yourself. ~

"Goddess of the Sea"
I've seen a number of celebs wearing the mermaid dress - Beyonce Knowles, Vanessa Hudgens, Melissa George, and Marissa Tomei. The mermaid style highlights the curves of a woman's body, very sexy and sophisticated.

"Modern Cinderella"
Some celebrities prefer to be the princess, not the queen. Penelope Cruz chose an off-white ball gown which complements her skin well. Miley looked like she came out from a fairytale book, except she doesn't have a crown. And for Sarah Jessica Parker who's in her 40's, I think it's not too late.

"The Runway Bride"
Color white definitely rules this prestigious event.
