In our weekly search of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we saw lots of white-on-white looks, some seriously awesome arm candy and the return of the pajama top (which really needs to be put to bed).

Up: All-white outfits. Celebs are totally exercising their right to wear white now that the warm weather is finally here. Kerry Washington perfectly demonstrates how to execute the monochromatic look in this Giambattista Valli midi, Nancy Gonzalez clutch and Christian Louboutin pointy-toe pumps. On the same style page, Angelina Jolie, Sienna Miller, Emma Roberts and Jamie Chung also ditched dark hues on the carpet.

Up: Oversized cuffs. Stars were rocking some serious accessories on their wrists this week. ZoĆ« Saldana leads the pack with her gigantic golden piece of arm candy that almost reaches her elbow (okay, maybe we are exaggerating a tad). Following in the actress’s blinged-out footsteps, Sofia Vergara rocks a bedazzled bracelet, with Blake Lively and Olivia Palermo also amping up their accessories games.

Down: Pajama-inspired tops. We love Rashida Jones, and we’re also fans of a good printed suit. But the actress’s floral top would have been better suited for a movie night on the couch, not the red carpet. And yes, we know this was a popular trend a few months ago, but we’ve noticed a lack of celebs sporting the style lately. Our choice? Rashida’s pants with a chic blazer and silk tank.

White works on Kerry Washington because she has a beautiful skin color and is slender. Many people looks washed out in white.

White is “taking over Hollywood”? Duh? White comes out everywhere between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and after Labor Day some other color will “be taking over.” How about telling something we might not already know: like one of the biggest colors this summer is orange.

Whoever writes these loves Kerry Washington way too much she’s in EVERY article these days about style. Try some other people I’m sure some other celebs look great. Seriously

Kitchy on

Kerry’s dress doesn’t fit. None of these three looks are good. Seriously, StyleWatch has become “how to stalk Kerry Washington.”

Agree with commenter, Nicole. The staff in the style department are obsessed with Kerry Washington. There are plenty of other stars out there who dress well too. We don’t have to see her in every single style article.
