Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, Kate Hudson and More Rock All Black: Style Showdown (GALLERY)
Rejecting summer's color explosion, celebs went back to black this weekend. From Gwyneth Paltrow to Kate Hudson to Ashley Greene, celebs across the globe were snapped in monochromatic ebony ensembles.
Victoria Beckham, Monet Mazur and Ashley Greene all embraced urban-chic looks in flirty LBDs while attending New York Fashion Week. Beckham wowed in a ruffled LBD at her show — one of our favorite looks of the weekend — while Greene, a DKNY spokeswoman, looked great in a figure-flattering black dress with sheer cut-outs.
We have to give Katherine McPhee props for breaking out of the LBD crowd with a two-piece ensemble for the Rebecca Taylor fashion show. Combining a peplum top and wide-leg pant, the Smash star was the picture of modern sophistication in her fashion-forward look.
And further up North, three more contenders entering the celeb black dress showdown.
While celebs played it safe in black for New York Fashion Week, stars went for more daring styles for the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Tying for sexiest style at TIFF, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson both looked smoking in LBDs that flaunted their fit figures. Mad Men star, Christina Hendricks was effortlessly elegant in a looser ladylike dress.
On the other end of the style spectrum, Anna Kendrick departed from her typically-flirty-yet-elegant frocks in a long black gown with sheer long sleeves and a leg-baring slit that we would have expected to see on Angelina Jolie. Though longer styles can easily overwhelm the petite star's figure, the asymmetrical sheer neckline freshened up the slightly goth look.
Across the pond, Salma Hayek stunned in a classic black gown and coordinating peep-toe pumps, while walking the red carpet with her family at the Deauville Film Festival. We love how she gave the classic style a modern update with a high-low hemline and sheer neckline that offered her bigger bust more support than a straight-up strapless gown would have.
So now that you know what we thought of everyone's ensembles, check out the gallery of celebs in black and let us know who you think looked best in black.
