We may love a look done with brights, but we’ve certainly been enjoying the plentiful black and white looks we’ve seen on the red carpet as of late. Emma Stone (actually in black and beige), at the MTV Movie Awards in Martin Grant, Alexa Chung, at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in Moschino, and Kristen Stewart, at the premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman in Stella McCartney show us the best if the best in this trend.We could totally see Alexa’s mod dress working for day or night in our wardrobe.

Move over colored denim theres a new trend in town: printed denim. Jessica Alba, in Current/Elliott jeans, Chloe Moretz, in J brand jeans, and Taylor Swift, in AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans all look fab working the trend. Judging from the looks above printed denim is extremely versatile looking equally as good with a graphic t-shirt as it does with a button down blouse.

As spring rolls around we expect to see lighter softer makeup palettes in the streets and on the red carpet, but instead we’ve seen nothing but dark lips on the red carpet. Jessica Alba and Kate Bosworth both sported dark berry lips to the Met Gala, while Jessica Chastain worked some crimson lips on the red carpet for Madagascar Three at the Cannes Film Festival.
The stars’ key to working this trend is to keep the rest of the makeup minimal while focusing on the lips.
Is there any better way to bring the drama than in a gorgeous spangled gown? Camilla Belle (in Ralph Lauren), Cameron Diaz (in Stella McCartney), Karolina Kurkova (in Rachel Zoe), Kate Upton (in Michael Kors) and Jessica Pare (in L’Wren Scott) certainly didn’t think so.
Feathers, feathers everywhere
For a dose of added drama, some celebrities went for mountains of feathers attached to their gowns. Check out Beyonce (in Givenchy Haute Couture), Kate Bosworth (in Prada), Diane Kruger (also in Prada), Cate Blanchett (in Alexander McQueen) and Amy Poehler (in Fotini.) Some may say this trend is better left to the birds, but we think these ladies pulled it off!
There just isn’t a more ethereal, angelic hue than white. And while some may consider it boring on the red carpet, these three starlets definitely took chances with such a safe color! We’re loving the looks by Ashley Greene (in Donna Karan Atelier), Claire Danes (in J. Mendel, with husband Hugh Dancy) and stylesetter Rachel Zoe (in her own design).
Bright, sunny yellow
Is there a more “notice me” color than yellow? We don’t think so, and neither did January Jones (in Atelier Versace), Coco Rocha (in Givenchy, previously owned by Elizabeth Taylor) and Solange Knowles (in Rachel Roy, with the designer).
Tulle, ruffles and other girly, flirty details were all the rage on the red carpet. Sometimes it’s just really nice to enjoy being a girl! At least that’s what Leslie Mann (in Nina Ricci), Scarlett Johansson (in Dolce & Gabbana), Leighton Meester (in Marchesa) and Dakota Fanning (in Louis Vuitton) thought.

We’re loving Kaley’s sheer black blouse by Naeem Khan. The oversized paillettes look so glamorous with lace-printed pants and black leather booties. Carrie’s taupe top is given added pizzazz with silver squares, and toned down just a bit with skinny jeans and cutout peep-toes.
This trend is a great way to add just a touch of drama to your look day or night.
