Onto the fashion! We decided to withhold judgement on what we thought of the starlets outfits - we'd love to hear your opinion - facebook, tweet or comment on the blog and let us know what you thought of this years fashion greats, and not so greats. We've picked up on a few trends though, and here they are! 
Brights were seen all over the red carpet,with red and orange dominating this trend. We love the fun its adds to the red carpet, and  we think its a great break from the usual sparkly stuff we are all so used to seeing.
Metallics were all the rage tonight too - we love Ellie Kemper and Rose Byrne looks smouldering in Vivienne Westwood. What do you think? 
A red carpet is no red carpet without the classic, unwavering fortitude of some good nude and sparkly dresses. They're always a safe bet because they always look amazing. This years selection is no different. Jennifer Lopez seemed to have had a mishap with her dress while presenting an award with Cameron Diaz - check out all the tweets about it here.
White was most definitely the dominating trend on the red carpet this year. Its clean, simple, sophisticated and fresh - what say you?  

Another year, another award season gone by. We hope you've enjoyed our coverage and we look forward to doing it all over again next year!
