Among our favorite gowns from the Golden Globes red carpet tonight, many of them involved fishtail hems (the style is typically an asymmetrical hem that is usually fitted around the hips and flares out from the knee to the floor). Stylish stars like Reese Witherspoon, Elle Macpherson, Sofia Vergara, and more took advantage of the trend, and for good reason. Fishtail hems are flirty, feminine, and sophisticated, and other than the whole "going up a flight of stairs" conundrum, it's an incredibly glamorous look. We spotted the look on the Spring '12 runways from designers like Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Christian Dior, and more, and we've rounded up some of the lovely ladies who sported them tonight. Click through to see them all now, and let us know who had your favorite gown in the comments.
Considering fishtail skirts are a big part of bridal fashion, it makes sense that they were also popular at the Oscars. What's the connection? Well, the Oscars is the biggest, fanciest award show of the season, hence, it calls for drama, drama, and more drama. Beyonce, Melissa George, Freida Pinto, Vanessa Hudgens, and Taraji Henson all wore dresses with fishtails tonight. Some were more voluminous than others, but they all brought elegance to the carpet. The most eye-catching fishtail? Melissa George's bright white Dolce & Gabbana.
