That forever-classy combo, black and white, had a big showing on this year's Golden Globes red carpet . Some women did it romantic, with florals and gowns with cascading trains, while others did the duo in a more modern shape. Still, however it's worn, no one can deny it makes for a very smart look. Herewith, the women who took on the trend this year.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
Jennifer's allegiance with Dior didn't waver. She picked a strapless white style banded by black at the waist and hips.
Julia Roberts in Dolce & Gabbana
A unique styling trick — a dress shirt worn under a strapless gown — took Julia's Dolce & Gabbana  into black and white territory.
Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen
Those weren't any simple stripes on Allison's McQueen gown. Rather, floaty feathers made everything feel a bit more whimsical.
Emilia Clarke in Proenza Schouler
The guipure lace on Emilia's custom Proenza Schouler  dress created a layered black and white effect that was gorgeous.
Hayden Panettiere in Tom Ford
Sharp, colorblock angles gave Hayden's Tom Ford  halter dress a supersexy feel (and the leg slit didn't hurt, either!).
Heidi Klum in Marchesa
One of those women doing black and white in its most romantic form was Heidi Klum , who picked a floral Marchesa  dress with a sheer train.
A mermaid-style dress with elaborate black beading kept Jenna as one of the most glamorous in the color pair.
Laura Carmichael in Viktor & Rolf
A pleated black chiffon insert was the one stark add-on that kept this custom Viktor & Rolf  gown from being all snowy white.
Zosia Mamet in Reem Acra
Black vines and buds framed the front of Zosia's Reem Acra gown for a polished effect.
