Crayola Carpet.

Nude gowns and black gowns have dominated the red carpet for years. But last night, two awards ceremonies, and two VIPs in particular, provided a much needed break from this rather boring tradition with Spring/Summer’s hottest trend: bright, Crayola colours.

Across the pond in Los Angeles, the 55th GRAMMY Awards red carpet was stolen by an unexpected, ultra-feminine look from Rihanna. Wearing a scarlet red Azzedine Alaïa gown, the Barbadian songstress looked absolutely stunning and really stood out against the monochrome looks from Beyoncé, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Rowland et al.

In London, the 66th BAFTA Awards took place honouring art forms of the moving image - film, television and video games. My favourite look of the ceremony came from Marion Cotillard and her partnership with Christian Dior. Wearing Spring 2013 Haute Couture, the actress wowed in an acid yellow, strapless gown with discreet sheer panelling and relaxed peplum. Paired with Chopard jewellery, this truly was the perfect red carpet look.

These two looks demonstrate the ability colour has to transform your look from good to great. By taking risks, these two celebrities are sure to be featured on every best-dressed list across the world for weeks to come.

Best of Black

Although a bit on the safe side, the following black looks impressed me. I love the jumpsuit trend demonstrated by Sarah Jessica Parker in Elie Saab & Beyoncé and the sheer panelling of Kelly Rowland's dress. Also a note on Anne Hathaway's pre-fall Burberry Prorsum dress - just the right amount of bling.
