The year's red carpets turned up a lot of gems, but some of the frocks that left the biggest impression on us were classic combos of black and white. Emma Watson went simple in Cannes in a Chanel number with a black sequined top and long, flowing bottom, while Brit Marling played with pleats in a silk Viktor & Rolf gown to premiere The Company You Keep in New York. Jennifer Lawrence's big red carpet year included her take on the timeless trend — she wore a strapless Dior in Cannes as well. It was Dianna Agron who strayed furthest from the fashion flock, picking a floral Carolina Herrera dress with silhouette-making short sleeves and a matching belt cinched at her waist.
