Bright bursts of color hit the red carpet this week along with more restrained tones of black, white, and gray. Spring collections from the past couple of years remained popular and intricate details like exquisite embellishments, ruffles, and dynamic folded accents were practically everywhere. A few celebs even relied on belted gowns to make an impression at several high-profile events.

Anne Hathaway at the London Premiere of Les Mis
Anne's daring white beaded Givenchy certainly had her standing out at her film's premiere. The Spring 2012 Couture creation included cold-shoulders and a dramatic open back, so the star wisely downplayed her accessories by just adding a pair of matching Givenchy sandals.
