Every once in awhile there just seems to be something in the air that gets celebrities syncing up their red carpet looks, even when they're appearing at events on different sides of the country or globe. This week was one of those instances: While stars like Lupita Nyong'o and Thandie Newton had us falling for colorful printed dresses, the overwhelming trend of the week was toward wearing black or white, with the occasional red accent. 

Some stars, like Nicki Minaj and Mary J. Blige in Dennis Basso, went for head-to-toe monochrome and let sexy cutouts keep the single color from feeling stale. Others, like Lili Reinhart and Zooey Deschanel, chose largely monochrome looks with hints of graphic black and white showing up in details like buttons or shoes. Other celebs, like Blake Lively and Leighton Meester (no, this was not a "Gossip Girl" reunion), opted to add bold hits of red to spice things up.
