Celebs were in the mood to flash some serious skin this week, showing off exposed shoulders and dynamic cut-out details. One of the more interesting manifestations was in the form of keyhole fronts. Color made a comeback, too with pops of unexpected summer hues.

Beautiful in Burberry, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley attended the UK premiere of her latest film in a custom deep blue backless masterpiece. The new actress has been shining in some magnificent gowns while she traverses the globe promoting the latest Transformers installment. We didn't have to wait long for her next show-stopper since she switched into a cream Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 dress for the premiere's after party held at Morton’s Club in London. Beaded shoulder embellishments and that currently trending keyhole feature upfront were amplified by a striking gold Ferragamo clutch and suede Azzedine Alaïa lace-up sandals. Rosie's penchant for Burberry is only logical since she was the brand’s go-to girl.

Another star opting for a keyhole detail was actress Kerry Washington. She donned a bright lime green Michael Kors Resort column dress with silver neck ring for the BET Awards in Los Angeles. Her dress featured a high slit and was paired with a Kotur clutch, gold Lana Jewelry earrings, Movado watch as well as black Christian Louboutin pumps. Penélope Cruz also went for a burst of color in this reddish-orange Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2011 one-shoulder creation for Madrid's Walk of Fame opening. Cork Louboutin heels were the perfect finishing statement.

Salvatore Ferragamo's Resort 2012 presentation drew some big names. Thierry Mugler's latest angel, Eva Mendes came to check out the show in a heavenly two-tone twist dress by Ferragamo. Twilight's Ashley Greene, meanwhile, chose this belted wrap dress by the label along with an exquisite houndstooth clutch from the Fall 2011 offering.

For the premiere of her film Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark which closed the 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival, Katie Holmes selected a dark navy Contrarian dress. What gave it a bit of attitude was the pleated skirt and exposed back. Accessories included nude T-strap Lanvin heels and a gold necklace by Jennifer Meyer. We're pretty sure the "S" on the pendant is for Suri. Clad in a sparkly Monique Lhuillier gown, Heidi Klum attended the Hamptons Magazine July 4th issue party at STK in New York City. The cover girl also shined in a pair of Eros silver heels by Jimmy Choo.

Rose Byrne was simply a vision in Valentino for the New York City Season 4 premiere of her show, Damages. This nude applique floral dress is straight from the Fall 2011 collection. Just like Kerry, Rose carried a Kotur clutch which was combined with a brown belt and Gio Diev Nikko II grey pumps with silver accents. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge certainly looked regal in a navy blue Erdem Resort 2012 dress during her recent Canadian voyage. Her Royal Highness let the lace capture most of the attention by sticking with neutral accessories including L.K. Bennett pumps.
