The people's choice awards are only really exciting because they're the first awards show of the season (the Golden Globes being this Sunday) but there were a few nice fashion moments this year. Kate Hudson showed up late (due to traffic, but I think really because it was her son's birthday) and missed presenting but won for favorite leading lady and got to show off her gorgeous blue assymetrical dress anyway. A lot of ladies wore black, and I especially liked Reese in a tiered halter dress which had really nice clean lines at the neck; Katherine Heigl in a trim, well-tailored black suit and a cute up-do; and Christina Appelgate in a long black gown with silver beading.
Among the men, I thought Seal was best-dressed (Thanks, Heidi) -- he got creative with black-on-black layering and a tie with a white pattern, but didn't go over the top. The Mentalist co-star Robin Tunney wore a patterened blue and white dress which might have been a little casual for the occasion, but I loved it all the same. Debra Messing and Marisa Tomei both wore short dresses with nude-colored shoes -- M in slinky red and D in an architectural pewter poof.
