Black and white ensembles were a red-carpet go-to at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards last night in Los Angeles. The trendy-yet-timeless look was spotted on spring runways from Oscar de la Renta to Altuzarra, proving its status as a wardrobe all-star. While you can always add a punch of color with a bright bag or shoe, these three starlets stuck to the basics for accessories.

  1. Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting showed off her figure in a monochrome outfit, coupled with another trend: midriff cutouts.
  2. Olivia Munn shimmered in a demure, horizontally striped, midi-length sheath dress from Giambattista Valli.
  3. Katharine McPhee wowed in a very of-the-moment Balmain dress, featuring both peekaboo detailing and stripes.

Over the past year, it was hard to ignore Taylor Swift’s music accolades (2014’s top-selling album and Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award among them), or her ever-evolving, enviable style. Needless to say, we’re looking to the pop star for a little cold-weather outfit inspiration as we kick off 2015.

Best Dressed Taylor Swift

  1. The secret to looking edgy and chic? A J Brand leather jacket, black leggings, and lace-up rag & bone boots.
  2. Perfecting the high-low mix, Taylor stepped out in Manhattan in a plaid Finders Keepers coat, ALDO handbag, and rag & bone boots.
  3. A baby-blue bouclé topper proved that when it comes to dropping temperatures, the coat really does make the outfit.

Celebrities favored the box clutch this week, pairing the chic handheld accessory with clean silhouettes (but bold details). These three looks, featuring geometric embroidery, three-dimensional folds, and leather accents, are equal parts classic and modern. And of course, they push boundaries in all the right ways.

Best-Dressed List

  1. Camilla Belle looked to Carolina Herrera‘s Spring 2015 Collection for an elegant red look at an event in Hollywood.
  2. Kerry Washington wore an origami-inspired Calvin Klein Collection dress for the 21st Annual Women in Hollywood celebration in Los Angeles. Her best outfit add-on (blue eyeliner) might not be what you’d expect, but she pulled it off with ease.
  3. Michelle Williams was head-to-toe perfection in Louis Vuitton at the opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Edgier than her typical red-carpet fare, the combination of this whimsical-print dress with black platform boots is just right.
