This week's best dressed ladies wowed in dramatic monochrome gowns and flirty A-line dresses. We particularly love the long-sleeve look, which is making a comeback on many first-week-of-December red carpets.
Read on for our picks for best looks of the week:
Kate Middleton stunned at the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom royal screening in a white-hot Roland Mouret gown—a dress that also made an appearance at a private dinner the duchess attended last year. We loved the way she accessorized the look this time around, with a gunmetal Zara necklace, black platform pumps and chic low-hung ponytail.
Earlier in the week, Mandela star Naomie Harris stepped out at the film's Paris premiere in a navy Vionnet confection—finishing her look with Chanel jewelry, Burberry heels and a Rauwolf clutch. The actress took the carpet with costar Idris Elba just days before the announcement of Nelson Mandela's Dec. 5 passing.
Meanwhile, Allison Williams turned heads in a dramatic black Oscar de la Renta gown at the Winter Ball for Autism held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. We love the sheer lace sleeves and billowing tulle skirt, which Williams balanced with simple makeup and a sleek updo.
In Seoul to promote beauty brand Cle de Peau, Amanda Seyfried looked pretty and polished in a graphic red-on-black swing dress with black platform pumps and a matching cherry pout.
Finally, Jessica Biel looked oh-so-chic in all black at the Hollywood premiere of her new film The Truth About Emanuel. The actress donned a GBV skirt and top, Bionda Castana heels, an AllSaints leather jacket and Tiffany & Co. jewels.
