This week, a flurry of spring-timed movie premieres and high-end store openings brought out stars' fashion A-games. At the Ferragamo flagship re-opening on Fifth Avenue, Solange Knowles boldly paired a saturated purple jacket and bold red pants -- both by Ferragamo, naturally. If you want to snap up the shoes she's wearing, they're available now at Bloomingdale's.

At the 2012 Bid to Save the Earth: The Green Auction party at Christie's in Rockefeller Center, model Coco Rocha wore an evening-appropriate look from Fendi. The sheerness of the sleeves helps offset their volume, so the model doesn't come off looking like a pirate.

At the premiere of "The Avengers" in Los Angeles, Scarlett Johansson scored a perfect 10 in this little black Versace dress. She completed the look by keeping her makeup and accessories simple, so the focus was squarely on the modern cut of the dress.

Close on her heels at the premiere, however, was Cobie Smulders, who sported a sultry gown by Donna Karan that showed just the right amount of skin. Again, in keeping the accessories simple, Smulders keeps the focus on the dress (and her killer figure).

Brooklyn Decker wore a fresh-off-the-runway look from J. Mendel's Fall 2012 collection for the Australian premiere of "Battleship." Though the runway look featured skin-baring cut-outs, the look Decker wore ended up a bit more covered-up.

Fellow model Chanel Iman was her counterpart in white for the evening, also wearing a wispy gown by Cushnie et Ochs with a plunging neckline. The dress is simple enough to be a slip, and the little white dress is slowly replacing the little black dress as the It-item of the season.

At the Paris premiere for her upcoming flick "Prometheus," Charlize Theron wore a fresh-off-the-runway cobalt dress from Stella McCartney's Fall 2012 collection (making her the first celebrity to wear anything from the collection). Cobalt is most definitely one of spring's biggest colors.
