Kristin Chenoweth Channels Gwyneth Paltrow at American Country Awards

kristin chenowethIt feels like every other week there's some music awards show, so it should come as no surprise that the American Country Awards were last night in Las Vegas. Tons of American Idol alums were there, but Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, and Jordin Sparks were hardly noticeable next to Broadway and country star Kristin Chenoweth. She looked red hot last night. And by red hot I mean green hot. Like tomatillo. In a plunging, emerald green gown from HONOR's 2011 collection with a thigh slit up to here, Chenoweth stole the show. And she might have stolen the look, too. Kind of looks like Gwyneth Paltrow's green dress, doesn't it?

Not that there's anything wrong with that. Both blonde stars look breathtaking in the gorgeous gem tone. And the sternum exposure also works for both ladies. It's not something many people can pull off, but Gwen, Kristin, and Lea Michele all look stunning in their deep Vs.

So what's the trend we're observing here. Is it cleavage-baring necklines? Or is it the emerald green color of the dresses? I gotta go with green on this one. We've seen V-necks that delve down to the belly button many times before (think J. Lo, Charlize Theron, and Amanda Seyfried) but the bright, saturated green is something a little newer, a little more interesting.

I hope Kristin and Gwyneth are on the cusp of a burgeoning grass green dress fad. It's one of the prettiest colors on most every woman. Blondes, brunettes, red heads, pale or tan, look fantastic in bold green. 2012 will be a great year if we get more green environmentally and fashionably. Going green really is the way to go!

Do you wear bright green?
