Jessica Biel held the number-one spot for most of the week, but a certain fashionable Brit managed to steal Mrs. Timberlake’s “best dressed” title: Emily Blunt.

Blunt’s win proved that “less is more” is still a good style mantra: more than 14,000 PEOPLE.com readers gave a thumbs up to her simple peplum black gown with a double belt and open back.

She finished off the sophisticated design, worn to the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, with Graziela danglers, an elegant pulled-back hairdo and a nude lip.

Despite all the stunning dresses seen at awards shows and premieres this week, it was Kerry Washington’s gorgeous floral-print gown that PEOPLE.com readers loved the most.

Washington has been on quite a stylish Django Unchained press tour, but it was the strapless Rochas number she wore to the film’s Paris screening that really turned heads. The look earned more than 12,000 votes — enough to give her top honors on our best dressed list.

This week’s People’s Choice Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards offered stars lots of choices (ha!) in the fashion department — chances to experiment with prints, designers, trends and more. Overall, we liked what we saw … and think we’ll be seeing lots more of two specific trends as red carpet season rolls on. Let’s get to the lowdown:

Up: Eye-catching embellished necklines. We’re not talking Jessica McClintock prom-style here, thankfully, but several stars — including Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt and Naomi Watts — showed up to this week’s awards shows in otherwise classic gowns that boasted beautiful, sparkly beading up top. And since red carpets always seem to attract major bling, we expect to see more gowns of this style in the high-fashion weeks ahead.

Jan/11/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

While we were chilling on the couch in our PJs, a host of stars were getting glammed up for the second night in a row, this time for Thursday’s Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles. And while there were a lot of standout gowns, five hair and makeup moves in particular really turned our heads …

After a quiet Thanksgiving holiday, Hollywood stars were out en force this week, dazzling (and sometimes disappointing) in a whole host of haute looks. And just in time for holiday party dress season, we saw some emerging trends you may want to try. Read on for more …

Up: Sleeves with personality: Katy Perry and Naomi Watts proved that dresses with sleeves don’t have to be snoozey — in fact, they can make a real statement on an otherwise plain dress. Perry added a floor-length cape to her midnight-blue Naeem Khan design, while Watts went for a winged look in a black below-the-knee number.

Check Out Emily Blunt's New Hair Color

She wasn’t trying to go incognito, but Emily Blunt was barely recognizable with her new hair color on Monday night.

“That’s not Emily Blunt,” one reader commented after we posted a photo to Instagram of Blunt at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York. “Yep, that’s not Emily Blunt,” someone else agreed.

But yes, it was Emily Blunt — and yes, she’d gone blonde! The British star debuted a strawberry-blonde hue at Monday night’s gala, hiding the hair color in a pretty, twisty updo, but leaving some light-colored strands out for us to see.

The actress — a natural brunette — often experiments with her hair color, having gone lighter for roles in the past and most recently rocking an ombré look.

Since she’s currently filming the sci-fi action flick All You Need Is Kill with Tom Cruise, we assume she dyed her hair for the role. But whether for work or for play, we’re really liking the lighter look. What do you think? Tell us: Do you like Blunt’s new blonde hair?
