Embellishments were all over the red carpet this week. Sequins, beads, and crystal accents adorned everything from gowns to accessories. Celebs opted for rich hues like emerald, yellow, red, and blue — though blacks and metallics also made appearances. A wide variety of necklines included strapless, plunging, and halters.
