The Met Gala garnered a lot of attention thanks to the striking silhouettes in honor of America's First Couturier, Charles James, but there were plenty of other events this week with noteworthy looks. From the 100th anniversary of a Washington, D.C. tradition to an eclectic variety of award shows, galas and premieres, stars gravitated toward texture. Structure and embellishments also played key roles on the red carpet as neutrals along with vibrant colors were prominently featured.
