Fashion goes back to black for a Red Carpet allowed by the strikers. The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Gala was authorized last night.

Among the awarded were Diablo Cody for Best Original Screenplay (Juno), Ellen Page for Best Breakout Performance by an Actress (Juno), Casey Affleck for Supporting-Actor (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), George Clooney for Best Actor Award (Michael Clayton), No Country for Old Men for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Even if it’s a rare view nowadays, stars made some really effortless looks for this Red Carpet! What is the idea with all these dark outfits? I only spotted one exception – Jurnee Smollett – a bridal appearance, not to applause in any other way than non-black statement.
