Striking hues and crisp neutrals shared the spotlight this week. From the star-studded American Music Awards in Los Angeles to a couple of charity galas, stars made sure to stand out by selecting looks complete with embellishments, cut-outs and even pleating. Celebs mainly relied on the Spring 2014 collections, but representatives from this year's Resort offerings and a custom creation were also spotted.
