Do not adjust your television. Your screen may have been black-and-white, but you were (probably) not watching I Love Lucy last night. It was just the red carpet for the People’s Choice Awards.
There was a pretty common theme among outfits at one of the first Hollywood ceremonies of the season. Celebs opted out of statement-making prints, blazing bright colors, and — most uncommon for a major red carpet event — heavy bling. Instead, a wave of minimalism washed over the nominees and presenters.
We get it, ladies. Black is endlessly flattering and a chic, no-brainer choice. White, on the other hand, is crisp and ethereal without being too precious. Would we have liked to see a smidgen more color? Sure, but we can wait patiently for the stars (and their stylists) to pull out the big guns at upcoming shows. For now, click on to see pics of the red carpet that was white and black and — in some very rare cases — pink all over.
