There are very few occasions in life that call for a strict all-white dress code – think Diddy's annual summer party and weddings, though only if you're the bride – but stars like Jessica Biel and Allison Williams stepped out this week as if to prove that a head-to-toe white ensemble has infinite styling possibilities. A-listers around the globe donned varying shades of ivory and cream for red carpet appearances, ushering a perfect spring trend.
Attending one of the most certifiably high-fashion events this week – the Los Angeles premiere of Met Gala documentary The First Monday in May – Allison Williams came dressed for the occasion. The Girls star wore a cream caped jacket over a matching neck-tie blouse and trousers by Hrabal Gurung, anchored by nude heels. It's a bold sartorial statement for the 28-year-old, and one that would undoubtedly garner approval from Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Also a vision in white, Jessica Biel looked sleek and sophisticated in a cut-out shoulder gown by The Row with a crystal-embellished neckline. The glowing mom added some extra sparkle to her look with Tiffany accessories – it was the iconic New York jeweler's Blue Book Gala, after all.
With a mom like former Vogue Paris editor and world-renowned fashion icon Carine Roitfeld, Julia Restoin Roitfeld was literally born into good taste. The fashion world's favourite daughter looked garden-party chic in a white Chanel cocktail dress at the annual Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner in New York. Actress Dree Hemingway went for Old Hollywood glamour in an off-white Chanel skirt and black top at the event.
Elsewhere in Hollywood, stylishly minded celebs like Zendaya (in Manning Cartell) and Ginnifer Goodwin (in Rebecca Minkoff) showcased the beauty of a simple monochromatic look. Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams rocked a crisp white shirtdress and Tilda Swinton a creamy robe-like Maison Margiela Artisanal coat, proving that the clean-looking shade is a hit at any event Just do yourself a favour and skip the red wine!
