Hey, HEY, time to focus! I know we're all a bit distracted by what certain people aren't wearing right now (ahem, Kim Kardashian) but it's time to talk about the stars who were wearing clothes — really good ones at that — on the red carpet this week. 

While the occasions were varied — movie premieres, fancy dinner parties, and awards shows around the globe — the celebs that caught our eye chose simple pieces that were anything but basic: think eye-catching monochrome outfits, and clean, streamlined shapes. For instance, Lupita Nyong'o's sublime Chanel couture dress was, of course, exquisitely embellished, but done in a straightforward shift silhouette. The sleek leather texture and diagonal slash of bold red on Keri Russell's strapless J. Mendel jumpsuit blew me away, and Olivia Wilde's minimalist black Michael Kors cut-out gown made more of a statement than any kaleidoscopic printed piece ever could.
