Neutral colors dominate the red carpet at ’32nd Blue Dragon Film Awards’

Rabu, 30 November 2011

It hardly seemed like it was winter at the ‘32nd Blue Dragon Film Awards, as actresses in pastel-colored dresses made the red carpet bloom.

On November 25th, stars gathered at Kyung Hee University’s Hall of Peace in Dongdaemun, Seoul, to take part in the annual film awards. Since it’s one of the most prestigious events in K-entertainment, many expected actresses to pull up in the traditional colors of red, black, and white. This year, however, there was a mutual consensus to step out of the ordinary and deliver something enchanting and wonderfully feminine.

Kim Hye Soo, who was nominated for Best Actress for her role in ‘Villain and Widow‘, wore a dove grey, off-shoulder dress that clung to her figure. The broad, angled cut around the neckline left an effect that was sophisticated, yet sexy.

Another strong nominee for the Best Actress award, Tang Wei from ’Late Autumn‘, wore a full green-grey dress that didn’t look a bit dowdy, as its lace detailing gave it a sense of elegance.

Actresses Choi Kang Hee, Jung Ryeo Won, and Nam Gyuri all also chose to wear long dresses that were close to a nude color, though all three were insightful enough to ensure that there were enough playful details like frills and bejewelled beading to prevent their look from being too dull.

If there’s anything that these ladies taught us yesterday evening, it’s that neutral shades aren’t just for spring anymore — with the right cut and accents, it can be relevant for all seasons.
