Shay Mitchell attends the 2016 People's Choice Awards on January 6, 2016

2016 People's Choice Awards: best dressed

The 42nd Annual People's Choice Awards took place Wednesday, January 6, in Los Angeles. Like each year before it, last night's event brought together actors, musicians and dancers to celebrate their work, but before picking up their trophy they have to walk down the red carpet! Let's take a closer look at some of our favorite ensembles...

Shay Mitchell

The Canadian actress turned heads in a figure-hugging black dress boasting a thigh high slit that showed off her long, lean legs! For her beauty look, Shay kept things equally glamorous: she traded in her favorite XL waves for pin straight locks tossed behind her shoulders and balanced out her nude lip gloss with ultra voluminous lashes.

Vanessa Hudgens

You can always count on Vanessa Hudgens to turn up the heat on the red carpet! The actress donned an elaborate metallic silver look topped off with a coordinated smoky eye and frosted lipstick. We especially love the Grease star's swept back wet look bob.

Ashley Benson

We love Ashley's little black dress with long sleeves and heavily embellished epaulettes! To complete her stellar look, the actress opted for a natural beauty look with blushed cheeks and glossy pink lips. Her long bob was styled into a relaxed low ponytail.

Kate Hudson

The actress looked modern and minimalist in this crisp white strapless jumpsuit! A simple tousled updo and natural beauty look completed the sophisticated outfit, while drop earrings gave a nod to Kate's signature bohemian style.

Lucy Hale

Perhaps our favorite look of the evening belonged to actress and singer Lucy Hale! Her black Victorian-inspired dress boasted a plunging neckline and tiered sections that gave it a really romantic look. To top it all off, Lucy's berry makeup and tousled braided crown really deserved an award of their own!
