Ginnifer Goodwin receives award for "Style Icon" at the 14th Annual Young Hollywood Awards.
Hollywood — It's summer and time for big screen flicks featuring young actors and actresses to release such as "The Amazing Spider-Man" with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone and "Savages" with Blake Lively and Taylor Kitsch. There's tons of excitement surrounding the who's who of Hollywood, especially the young up and comers. Last Thursday we were on the red carpet at the 14th Annual Young Hollywood Awards, where Hollywood's brightest stars convened at the Hollywood Athletic Club to celebrate emerging talent. Bing, the growing search engine, sponsored the event and "Your Bing Moment" was the theme of the night. And there were plenty of "Bing" moments of the night, like when James Van Der Beek entered the building or the fashionable ladies who were blinging in their designer garbs.

Bella Thorne was a standout in her pink party dress and attitude, while the bombshell Janurary Jones looked stellar in a yellow-hued frock. Janel Parrish was another standout in an off-the-shoulder ensemble. Sophia Bush wore a fresh black and white cutout dress. They were all on par for the evening of celebrating the fabulous young Hollywood set.
While celebrities, producers and socialites mingled before the ceremony, toasting over trendy cocktails and celebrating their achievements, Bing documented all the special moments, using Twitter to connect the young social media addicted crowd. The awards show was just as posh with a perfect mix of praise and entertainment and a strong underlying energy that signified a young new Hollywood generation was poised and ready to take over the entertainment business.
