After taking in all the red carpet looks at tonight's 2014 People's Choice Awards, the verdict is clear: sometimes keeping things simple is the way to go.

Case in point: Jessica Alba. She looked perfectly polished in an understated white strapless Jason Wu dress. Another winner? Allison Williams. The Girls star looked stunning in a cobalt blue belted David Koma dress that showed just the right amount of skin.

Jennifer Hudson also took the simple route and went with a curve-hugging, white hot number that allowed her bright pink lip to pop.

So far, so fabulous! So where did things get a little, um, tricky? Well, there were a lot of dizzying prints on the red carpet and not all of them wowed.

Most of the floral numbers fell flat, like Melissa Joan Hart's rose-printed, coral and gold metallic hi-low strapless gown just had way too much going on. And while we like that Heidi Klum took a risk with a plunging neckline, the floral print and shoulder detailing made her Armani dress feel too overworked.

Our takeaway? It's January, people! Save the flowers for springtime. 

What did you think of the looks at tonight's PCAs?
