What's Black and White and All Over the Red Carpet? This Trend

Jan 13 2014 - 6:35am

That forever-classy combo, black and white, had a big showing on this year's Golden Globes red carpet [1]. 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 [2] 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 [3] dress created a layered black and white effect that was gorgeous.

Hayden Panettiere in Tom Ford

Sharp, colorblock angles gave Hayden's Tom Ford [4] 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 [5], who picked a floral Marchesa [6] dress with a sheer train.

Jenna Dewan

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 [7] 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.
