Hollywood starlets up the style stakes in dramatic gowns

There was a fashion face off on Wednesday as Hollywood's most promising youngsters pulled out all the style stops in daring, dramatic gowns.

Leading the pack at the People’s Choice Awards was Vanessa Hudgens, who looked gorgeous in a webbed black Jenny Packham maxidress with a sheer panel that showed off the plunging neckline.

The 23-year-old former Disney star teamed the stunning creation with gold leaf earrings and smoky eyes.



Demi Lovato, meanwhile, looked equally lovely in a peach hued, crystal adorned full-length gown by Marchesa which flaunted her impressive curves.

Her simple up-do and crystal clutch completed the elegant look.

Glee star Lea Michele looked to be taking inspiration from the 1920s in her white, full-on fringed number by Marchesa.

Paired with neon pink lips and brash gold accessories, Lea gave the vintage look a modern twist.

Other famous faces in attendance had opted for more simple ensembles. Miley Cyrus showed off her impressive physique in a white David Koma dress with low key detailing that lent a high fashion edge.

And Emma Stone, who picked up two trophies, gave a masterclass in androgynous styling with her green tuxedo jacket and skinny black trousers.
