Unique prints and patterns dominated the red carpet this week. From florals to more abstract designs, celebs opted to stand out in style. On the other end of the spectrum, some stars impressed in sophisticated black gowns with beaded accents and contrasting details. Celebs also went bold when it came to footwear, selecting shoes featuring everything from bows to embroidery and even embellished parrots.
