A Look Back at the Fashion Highlights From Last Year’s People’s Choice Awards (PHOTOS)

People's Choice Awards 2012 Fashion 2012 People's Choice Awards - Red Carpet 2012 People's Choice Awards - Red Carpet 2012 People's Choice Awards - Arrivals

We’re counting down the minutes until tonight’s kick off to red carpet season — the 2013 People’s Choice Awards.

There’s only a few more hours to go until the red carpet fashion show begins, and to pass the time, we’re looking back at some of the most memorable looks from last year’s show.

Though the two biggest red carpet extravaganzas of the year — the Golden Globes and the Oscars — tend to steal all the style thunder, the People’s Choice Awards happens to be one of our favorite red carpet events to watch.

Not only is it a chance for stars to set the tone for the rest of the red carpet season, but there’s also less pressure to hit a home run, so we see many stars get more adventurous with their looks. Translation: The fashion is often far more fun and exciting to watch.

 

Plus, the fashion tends to be a little more casual compared to the dramatic couture confections that pour out come Golden Globes and Oscars time, with fashionistas like Emma Stone, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lawrence and Selena Gomez donning everything from pants and tuxedo jacekts to mini dresses on the red carpet.

In other words, the red carpet fashion is far more translatable to real life, so there’s always plenty of inspiration to steal for your next cocktail party or night-out.

Take a look back at the fashion from the 2012 People’s Choice Awards.

Share your favorite looks from last year’s show — plus, which stars you’re excited to see hit the red carpet this year.

It may have been back to reality for most of us who had to return to work last week, but A-listers like Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo and  Julianne Hough extended their holiday vacations into the New Year.

From the beaches of St. Barts and Mexico to Miami, Hollywood’s hottest stars celebrated the New Year with some fun in the sun.

While they may have taken a break from the set, these stars didn’t slack on style during their beach getaways.

Wowing us with more than just their beach bods, Palermo, and Hough both hit the sand in style, donning chic cover-ups over bright or white (in Hough’s case) bikinis to catch some rays with their main men in toe.

Also scoring major points in the style and bikini body departments,Naomi Watts, and Jessica Alba and Cindy Crawford all looked impossibly chic while playing in the sand and ocean with their families.

Flaunting her baby bump, mom-to-be Jenna Dewan-Tatum channeled her tropical surroundings in colorful prints while enjoying a beach babymoon with husband Channing Tatum.  

But what really took these star’s resort-wear to the next level were the finishing touches. Fashionable flair — straw fedoras, retro shades, stacked bangles, beaded necklaces, printed beach bags — took these beach babes’ style from chic to magazine-worthy.

Even if you won’t be enjoying a vaca anytime soon, these stars’ resort style will transport you (at least for a few minutes) to someplace fab and fashionable.

Check out the stars’ chic resort style and get inspired to plan your next getaway.

Where do you want to go on your next vacation — and what will you be packing?

Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough Relax on the Beach in St. Bart’s (PHOTOS)

Ryan Seacrest – arguably the busiest man in show business — actually managed to sneak in a little R&R this week in St. Bart’s, where he and girlfriend Julianne Hough enjoyed some well-deserved fun in the sun.

The happy lovebirds were photographed Wednesday paddle-boarding and playing around in the ocean. Hough, 24, showed off her killer bod in a white bikini, while her 38-year-old beau — who hosted ABC’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on Monday and Tuesday — showed off his own (admittedly impressive) beach body in blue swim trunks.

See photos from their beach day in the gallery, above.

Hough’s beach day makes for a much lighter headline than the ones she made earlier this week after admitting to being abused as a child.

“I was abused, mentally, physically, everything,” the former Dancing With the Stars beauty told Cosmopolitan in its February issue.

According to Hough, the abuse took place at London’s prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Arts, where she was sent at the age of 10 to study dance.

“I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer,” she said. “I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl.”

On a lighter note, Hough saved room to talk about her relationship with Seacrest, whom she began dating in 2010.

“We love what we do. We take pride in giving it our all, but then when we’re alone, we really focus in on going to dinners and being extra-romantic and affectionate and just being there for each other,” she said.

Hough, who last year co-starred in the much-hyped remake of Footloose, returns to the big screen on Feb. 14 in Safe Haven, opposite Josh Duhamel.

Seacrest, meanwhile, returns as host of ‘American Idol’ season 12 on Jan. 16.

Julianne Hough Reveals: ‘I Was Physically Abused as a Child’

Julianne Hough revealed a shocking detail about her childhood in the February issue of Cosmopolitan: that she was abused as a child.

While Hough was 10 years old and living in London to study dance, the Safe Haven star claims she was taken advantage of by adults around her. While attending the elite Italia Conti Academy of Arts, Hough said, “I was abused, mentally, physically, everything.”

“I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer,” she explained.

“I was a tormented little kid who had put on this sexy façade because that was my job and my life,” she said. “But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love.”

The 24-year-old added that the abuse proceeded to get worse as she got older.

“When I started hitting puberty, I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl,” was when things reached their pinnacle she told the mag.

Hough does not want to reveal any specifics regarding the abuse in an effort to move forward with her life.

“I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody,” she said.
