Style Icons: My Favorite Red Carpet Gowns of the Decade

With the New Year and New Decade approaching fast I decided to look back at some of my favorite red Carpet gowns from the decade. This is just a sampling of the gorgeous gowns we saw over the past ten years. There were many great looks and wild statements made in 2000's. I mean the decade started off with JLo's legendary down to there Versace statement dress, Bjork's swan dress and most importantly a Britney Spears kicking off her reign in a flesh colored body suit. The following are my favorite Oscar and Golden Globe looks, I'm sure I forgot many favorites as well.
2002 Oscars
Jennifer Lopez in Versace. Quite a different look from the Versace dress cut down to there. I loved this dress and hairstyle. Although I rememebr it not being that well received.

2009 Oscars
Miley Cyrus in Zuhair Murad. I think this dress is PERFECT! Totally reminds me of a Barbie dress and I love it. Image source unknown
I guess I prefer pink, ruffles and strapless dresses. I can't wait to see what dresses will be hitting the red carpet in the next decade. And I wonder if the 2010 Grammy Red Carpet will start us off with a statement dress of the decade like Jlo's Versace dress did at the 2000 Grammy Awards. You know we can expect some craziness from Rhianna,, Beyonce and Lady Gaga. I can't wait!

  7. Styles are very simple, but elegant at the same time. I think it's the reason why we all love these kinds of outfits. I always love to get Red Carpet Gowns but some times got confused where to Shop Online Jalabiyas UAE. RubinaK made me a great dress for a big party during that time.
