Last night in New York City at the Armani One Night Only event, famous folks gathered and wore a lot of black. A whole lot of black.
BFFs Leo DiCaprio and Marty Scorsese wore nicely tailored suits.
Jeremy Irons rocked a banded collar shirt and a scarf. Stylish. Mark Ronson channeled a 1920s gangster.
Ricky Martin did a little peacocking. Mr. Armani was crisp and classic. Bryanboy picked a fantastic greatcoat. Peter Facinelli? Blue velvet, if you please.
Before we get to all the black: A bit of color. Purple blooms are just lovely on Greta Gerwig. Noted Man Repeller Leandra Medine paired violet with eggplant.
Cannot get behind the saggy abomination that swallowed the beautiful Naomi Watts. I hate the texture of the fabric, the sleeves, the neckline, the seams, the dark abyss that might be pants or a skit. Fail dot com.
Chic jackets and sharp trousers on Lauren Hutton and Glenn Close.
More jacket/trouser combinations: Coco Rocha, Renee Zellweger.
More black on black, done very well: Olivia Palermo, Isabel Lucas, Carine Roitfeld.
Showing the young'uns how to look like a million bucks: Linda Fargo, Vice President of Visual Merchandising at Bergdorf Goodman; the inimitable Ellen Barkin.
Black neither basic nor boring: Roberta Armani, Amanda de Cadenet, Emily Ratajkowski aka one of the naked women from the "Blurred Lines" video. Her mother wanted her to be a brain surgeon. Emily took off her top and modeled instead and landed an acting gig and now "wants to be a brand."
Playing with different textures: Hilary Swank, Olivia Munn.
Dianna Agron and Natalie Dormer both wore great little black dresses.
The peplum on Jaimie Alexander's ensemble is a tiny bit ridiculous, but everything else is so fierce — from her hair to her heels — that this is really one of the best looks of the night. She's serving Disney villain realness.
One of the other best looks: Sami Gayle, in a whimsically elegant little number.
Props to Quvenzhané Wallis for eschewing black and sporting cozy winter white. Adorable.
