5 of Hollywood's Most Memorable Red Carpet Fashions of 2011

Award season...yup it's that time again...
 no doubt we'll see lots of interesting fashions!
 Today's guest blogger Emily looks back
 at some of 2011's most interesting Red Carpet looks

You have to wonder if there was some sort of back room contest taking place to see who could produce the most over-the-top red carpet outfit in 2011. While no one could rival Lady Gaga’s meat dress from the 2010 Grammys, there were certainly some memorable entries that we saw last year.

1. Helena Bonham Carter

This eccentric British actress never disappoints in providing us with a breather from the dull and predictable. Her outfit of choice for the 2011 Oscars was a quirky, black velvet dress by "Alice in Wonderland" costume designer Colleen Atwood. The corseted dress was a nod to the 18th century and her demented Goth fashion leanings. The finishing touch was a lot of leg accessorized with a Union Jack garter belt.
2. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s wore an Alexander McQueen costume to the 2011 Bambi Awards that was dubbed the “Post-Apocalyptic White Swan" by the fashion media. The head-to-toe creation is armored on top and intricately layered with tiered ruffles from the waist down. Lady Gaga managed to give the bold dress extra shock value by replacing the lace headdress originally featured on the runway with a helmet that matches the metal bodice.

3. Nicki Minaj

The only way to describe Nicki Minaj’s 2011 Grammy Givenchy outfit is to compare it to the “Bride of Frankenstein” meets a leopard. Her hair was a platinum skyscraper with a random black streak that suddenly produced a leopard print short fringed hairdo. The animal print theme continued with a high collared dress that tied at the neck and leopard print tights, gloves and boots.

4. Katy Perry

Katy Perry floated down the red carpet 2011 AMA awards looking like an angel - literally. Her Giorgio Armani, Swarovski encrusted gown was made of white satin and featured a long, cascading train and wings on her back. The look was slightly bizarre, ethreal and beautiful but fashion critics were not impressed with this red carpet choice. What fashion critics fail to realize is that this diva dresses for impact that will keep them talking.

5. Jesse J

British songtress Jessie J turned heads at the "2011 VH1 Soul celebrates Divas" award show with an edgy haircut and a gaudy Falguni and Shane Peacock dress. The confusing and revealing black and gold floor-length gown featured heavy gold embroidery and the grandma panties and bra awkwardly concealed her lady parts.

While 2012 is still new, without a doubt we have already seen some stunning outfits. Only time will tell if they can outdo any of these radical outfits for 2011! Snooki already has pulled out some interesting
personalised t shirts and bootie shorts of course and if the rumor is true that she has a little guidette in the oven, there may be a whole new generation hitting the red carper soon!
