Color and texture were well-represented this week. From award shows to movie premieres, celebs played with unexpected combinations while staples like black, white, and nude still had strong showings, especially when it came to accessories. Some of the best looks, however, occurred off the red carpet.

Pairing two separates from Alberta Ferretti's Spring 2011 offering paid off for Kristen Bell as she checked out the selection at a swag bag party in Brentwood, California. Her textured beige long-sleeve crochet top and green leaf printed mini skirt were sent down the runway as part of different ensembles, but the actress proved the collection can be mixed and matched. She finished off the look with reddish-orange Casadei pumps and a nude version of Jimmy Choo's Rhea stamped mock croc tote. The menswear trend gets a dose of 70s swagger as Lindsay Lohan arrived at LAX. She may have made a lot of wrong turns when it comes to her career, but this former child star got it right reigning in an oversized white button-up with a chic Chanel belt and topping it all off with a tan floppy hat. Her carry-on was a blue jean Hermes Birkin bag.

Solange Knowles demonstrated how to properly colorblock at the INC International Concepts announcement at New York City’s Open House Gallery. She brought her son to the event where she wore a camel, red, and black top partnered with mustard slacks and wild Tribute pumps by Yves Saint Laurent. What put the whole look over the top was that purple Emilio Pucci Marquise bag. Kerry Washington attended the 2011 Do Something Awards decked out in a lacy black bow detailed one-shoulder Zuhair Murad silk mini from the Fall 2011 collection. The actress knows how to accessorize, opting for equally lacy Jimmy Choo peep-toe booties, a black Bottega Veneta clutch, Arunashi earrings and rings courtesy of Le Vian.

One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush went with this teal Tibi strapless column dress on the blue carpet. Her stellar gems included rings by Swarovski and Bavna, Sethi Couture stud earrings and that fantastic twisted chain necklace by Iosselliani. Vamp sandals by Jimmy Choo and a Hands Up Not Handouts clutch also served as accessories. Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice kept it age-appropriate at the awards donning a Jay Godfrey mini with tiered skirt. Giuseppe Zanotti’s leopard print ankle strap pumps collaborated well with the bright hue of the scoop neck dress.

This white L ‘Wren Scott Fall 2011 sheath showed Claire Danes was still in a summer state of mind for the Showtime and Cinema Society premiere of her new TV show, Homeland. Cap sleeves and a high neck further defined the dress as did the addition of simple nude heels. Chloe Moretz already appears pretty comfortable experimenting with fashion at just 14 years old. This rainbow Christopher Kane Resort 2012 ensemble she wore to the Empire Big Screen Event at the O2 Arena in London included a sequin top and corresponding asymmetrical skirt. Rupert Sanderson's strappy black sandals completed the youthful look.

For the Los Angeles premiere of Our Idiot Brother, Olivia Munn was the very picture of sophistication in a knee-length silk faille Carolina Herrera number. Her orange Neil Lane earrings really popped against the black and white dress while nude pumps and a coordinating clutch helped pull the whole look together. Former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland attended The X Factor photocall at O2 Arena. The new judge has a habit of putting together a great outfit, but missing the mark when it comes to accessories. Maybe she has learned her lesson, though, since she went the minimalist approach when it came to this Versace Fall 2011 sleeveless dress with neon green python detail. She also sported extreme Giuseppe Zanotti wedges.
