Sheer was a popular element on the red carpet this week. See-through details were spotted from London to Paris on necklines and sleeves. Gold accents along with black dresses and bold tie-dye prints also all made appearances. Full-length gowns were noticeably absent since stars favored knee-length hems and minis.
