Every awards show season, there are a few red carpet ensembles that make an impact, for better or worse, by force of sheer audacity. The dress worn by Amanda Michalka
to the People's Choice Awards may well be one of those pieces. While not particularly revealing, the black and white mini had its fair share of trends packed into one eye-catching package.
The floaty, puffy sleeves were very Pirates of the Carribbean
, while the sparkling keyhole neckline had something of a cocktail waitress element. Add a feathered empire waist, a hemline with sheer piping and lace-up heels, and you've got one heck of a party dress.
