Here are my faves from this year:
The first set of gowns I liked for their romantic or old-world feel. Penelope Cruz looks effortlessly elegant in her off-shoulder gown. I think this one is my favourite. The next one in pale pink with beading I also like, it's very pretty and feminine.
These next two, I like for their blingy-ness. Shiny, sparkly, celebratory.
And here are two which I like for their off-worldly look. I'm sure this is not the look that Gwyneth and Shailene were going for, but I can imagine rulers from a far away world wearing stuff like this.
These two appeal to the younger me. They are fun - one has multiple ruffles and the other has polka dots, and they're red!
And finally, if I ever had a gown-required event to attend, it would probably be in something sensible like this:
There were lots of other beautiful gowns too, but these ones were my favourites. What do you think?
