2012 Oscar Dress Trends – White and Silver Beaded Gowns. One of the most sought after styles at tonight’s awards included the look of white or silver beaded gowns. Ladies love the look of lightly colored gowns that look gorgeous walking down the red carpet. Many starlets were seen in either all white dresses, white beaded gowns, or silver beaded styles. Some of my favorites ladies wearing this trend included Giuliana Rancic wearing a mermaid silhouette with soft feathers featured on the shoulders and beaded bodice, and Milla Jovovich stunning in a one shoulder Elie Saab floor- length gown. Look below to see what other ladies choose to wear white or silver beaded styles.
