Black was the new black at the 2014 PEOPLE Magazine Awards. Despite it being mid-December and the height of the holiday season, most of the A-listers who stepped out weren't festive or colorful with their ensembles. All-black was the celeb style trend at the 2014  PEOPLE Awards, with Karlie Kloss, Kate Upton, Nicole Richie, and more going monochromatic and dark.

But it was not fashion doom and gloom due to all that black. Each black-clad celeb offered her own take on the classic shade with a variety of cuts and silhouettes.

There were some non-black looks, with Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwen Stefani leading the charge by opting for more neutral shades.

These were the best of the all-black looks (and beyond) at the event.
