    Do you think the orange trend will continue at the Oscars?

    I do! Orange was a huge hit on the red carpet at this past weekend's Golden Globe Awards, and I definitely think it's here to stay throughout awards season.

    Jessica Alba stunned in a beautiful melon-hued Oscar de la Renta gown that looked incredible against her golden compexion, while Marion Cotillard stepped out in an effortless strapless custom design by Dior in a deeper fiery orange-red shade.

    And then there was Jennifer Lawrence, also in Dior, wearing a striking persimmon color that begged to be noticed. These hot hues are radiant on the red carpet and will continue to make a powerful statement this spring.

    How many actors/actresses who attend the Golden Globes, change into other outfits for the afterparties? #AsktheTrend

    Quite a few! There are countless reasons why a star would  double up on outfits for one big night: comfort, fresh photo opps and another chance to wear an incredible designer look, just to name a few. 

    Awards season only happens once a year, so why not embrace all of the glamour and gorgeous gowns, right? (Plus, most of those red carpet dresses aren't exactly the easiest things to move around in—and when celebrating a big win at a fabulous bash, comfort is key!) 

    This year, we took notes on the afterparty wardrobe changes ranging from Jessica Alba, who swapped her curve-hugging mermaid gown for a chic mod-inspired Louis Vuitton sheath dress from the spring/summer 2013 collection; and also Sarah Hyland who traded in her sultry Max Azria Atelier floor-length gown for a sparkly mini at the InStyle and Warner Bros. afterparty. Genius!

    And to make it easier for you, we pulled together a gallery of the Golden Globe wardrobe changes (including savvy stars like Amy Poehler, Julianne Hough and Jennifer Lopez) for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
