Some stars chose a deeper, richer take on blue. Kylie Minogue's Yves Saint Laurent gown paired an electric cobalt hue with a more subdued silhouette.
The dress Patricia Clarkson wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars party was even a shade closer to a jewel-tone blue, while still ensuring that all eyes were on her.

In contrast to all that blue, bright red has also proven a popular color for stars on the red carpet. Take, for instance, the bright red Valentino cocktail dress that Emma Watson wore to an event in London.
