For their turn on the red carpet, most of Hollywood’s beauties went slightly demure with short sleeves. Sleeveless, strapless, and halter necklines took a back seat to sleeve lengths that hit at the bicep and above leaving little exposed and much to the imagination.

Amy Adams’ cap sleeve L’Wren Scott dress may have kept her covered, but the top to bottom blue sequins were anything, but modest. She still managed to make a big impact without having to show a lot of skin.

Cate Blanchett chose a short sleeve Givenchy dress that really had people talking. At 41 years old, ladies can take a cue from Cate and look stunning while covering up those parts you may not want people to see.

For your every day style, a short sleeve mini dress, as shown on the Matthew Williamson runway is perfect for running errands and spring outings. The pretty print is lovely and ladylike.
