After a short look at this month's red carpet events before the Oscars I can say that glamour has exceeded Hollywood's boundaries.2008 Bafta Awards were illuminated by shiny dresses in silver, gold and sparkling turquoise. Marion Cotillard who won Best Actress wore the most daring outfit: a silver mini Chanel Haute Couture dress with a built in white cape.

Along with those sparkling beauties the BAFTA Awards saw some very dramatic black gowns with little adornment, long sweeping-floor trails or deep slits.

2008 Grammy Awards went through a makeover as this year it looked very grown-up and glamorous. Finally music stars decided to give a more fashionable significance to this major event. There were a lot of knockout dresses in bold colors or with dramatic-looking long trails, all big-name designers.
