The Word of the Day Is Monochromatic

Jul 6 2014 - 8:00am

One note? Boring? Not how these ladies do it. Whether it's preferring a single palette for a string of appearance as Nicola Peltz did in white Stella McCartney dresses or sticking to one color from head to toe like Gemma Arterton's scarlet Prabal Gurung set, monochrome is definitely having a moment.

And it's no wonder! Nothing represents the easy, laid-back aesthetic we favor for Summer like one clean wash of hue. Then again, as some women prove, there's nothing wrong with a bright pop of color. See all the looks we loved on some very chic ladies.

Gemma Arterton

Gemma Arterton wore the color of the week [1] when she arrived to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party in Prabal Gurung's bright separates.

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley [2] gave Carrie Bradshaw a run for her money in gold Mary Janes that complemented her metallic Simone Rocha number at the London Begin Again photocall.

Suki Waterhouse

Suki Waterhouse's blush Burberry Prorsum slip dress nearly blended in with her skin tone for a sexy effect at the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party.

Kerry Washington

At the BET Awards, clever Kerry Washington didn't compete with her Dolce & Gabbana dress's floral pattern, instead accessorizing the print with white pumps, a green clutch, and coral nails.

Nicola Peltz

Nicola Peltz doubled down on cool, white Stella McCartney dresses when she wore her second of the week [3] to the Berlin Transformers: Age of Extinction press conference.


Zendaya looked pretty in a matching pink Emanuel Ungaro set while attending a book-launch dinner for Letters, to Men I Have Loved.

Jennifer Lopez

Silver tartan added extra curve appeal to Jennifer Lopez [4]'s LBD and black stiletto combo at the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party.

Chloë Moretz

Chloë Moretz arrived for the Saturn Awards in a graphic Dolce & Gabbana party dress. So as not to compete with the mosaic lines, the actress stuck to skinny black sandals and kept the accessories to a minimum.

Candice Swanepoel

Candice Swanepoel stepped off the runway and into the front row at Menswear Fashion Week, wearing a more modest [5] yet still skin-baring ensemble by Christian Dior.

Naomie Harris

Still, there are exceptions to every rule, and Naomie Harris turned to one of our favorite styling tricks and added pop of color via Casadei pumps to her pretty Vivienne Westwood design at a Virgin Atlantic bash.
