Details were key this week to standing out on the red carpet. Sheer accents, fringe and other embellishments all helped stars make an impact. While the Oscars captured most of the limelight, several pre-events and other award shows proved just as stylish. Neutrals and vivid shades received equal adulation as celebs attempted to mix things up.
