Color was definitely a big trend on the red carpet this week. Deep reds, subtle blush tones, rich greens, and vibrant yellows were all well-represented, in addition to shades of gray. Lace was also popular with several stars selecting looks with delicate embroidered accents. There was a notable variety of neckline styles, including strapless, one shoulder, halter, plunging, and even high collar.
