Ornate accents were all the rage this week. Celebs relied on beading, lace and jacquards to stand out on the red carpet at everything from the ESPY Awards to various premieres. Even accessories got into the act with stars selecting statement jewelry as well as clutches and footwear featuring embellished details. Knee-length dresses and minis were popular picks thanks to the hot weather, but a few actresses still opted for floor-length gowns.
