Patel looked dapper in a black suit with a bronze tie and was up on stage at the Shrine Exposition Center last night to present an award. While actresses like Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Julianna Margulies and Claire Danes stuck to either black or white, Pinto, Jessica Chastain, Lea Michele and Nina Dobrev added the much-needed dash of colour with their bright gowns.

Darker shades of blue were also found plenty on the red carpet, with actresses like Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence, Amanda Seyfried and Carmen Electra turning out in the hue.
