Purple Dresses Emerge As Award Season Trend

As award season kicks off, purple dresses have emerged as a popular trend for actresses on the red carpet. From rich royal eggplant to delicate violet, every shade of purple made a colourful statement. The best part? There is a regal hue out there for every complexion.

Julianna Margulies chose a dramatic shimmering purple gown from Naeem Khan to wear to the Golden Globes. Looking positively statuesque, Julianna’s addition of turquoise earrings earned her extra points for a winning colour combination.

Mila Kunis went for a more sultry vibe in a two-tone Prabal Gurung number – the shades were a beautiful compliment to her fair skin and raven locks.

All eyes were on Golden Globe winner Octavia Spencer who was a wonderful example of dressing to flatter body type. In a pale lilac gown designed by Tadishi Shoji, the open neckline and gathered draping was perfection.
