Sartorially savvy stars know that for black-tie premières and swish galas, sometimes an all-black ensemble just won't cut it, especially with all the sequin embellishments and bold hues that stood out on the fall runways. Actresses like Emily Blunt, Jessica Alba to Cate Blanchett got the memo this week, stepping out in eye-catching looks that boldly reflected their playful personalities.
Jessica Alba, stylish mom to seven-year-old Honor and four-year-old Haven and founder of The Honest Company, looked every bit the sunny California girl in a lemon-yellow Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 maxi gown at the 2015 Baby2Baby gala. It was a perfectly boho yet still chic and dazzled those at the fourth-annual soirée held in Culver City, Calif.
In Los Angeles, Elizabeth Banks continued the colourful fashion parade at the première of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2. The Pitch Perfect star opted for a sequinned, colour-block Dolce & Gabbana gown, a look that also ushers in the festive season.
The always-stylish Kate Hudson slipped into one of her favourite styles this week: a jumpsuit. The beaded, candy apple-hued version by Naeem Khan was just the ticket to celebrate the launch of her 2016 Campari Calendar in New York.
Rounding out a colourful week in A-list red-carpet style were Julianne Moore, Kirsten Dunst and Jane Fonda in eye-catching ensembles. See what all the stars are wearing by tapping the image – and let us know your top picks on Twitter and Facebook!
