Listen, I’ve lived in several neighborhoods over the course of my five-plus year tenure in New York—but after the 2014 Golden Globes, I’m 99.9% sure that the only block I want to live on from now until forever is the COLOR BLOCK. *ba dum TSH, swings microphone around on cord, points and winks at crowd* Seriously, though. We saw a lot of trends at the second major awards show of the season: braids, brights, and most surprising, man-buns. But none made their mark quite like the color-blocked gown.

Taylor Swift, nominated for Best Original Song for “Sweeter Than Fiction” from One Chance, chose a sweetheart-cut, pre-Fall 2014 gown by Carolina Herrera, which featured a black partial bustier and cherry-red body with a gathered train. Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical winner Amy Adams (for American Hustle) wore a Maison Valentino number with an imitable color scheme, but Adams’ pick featured a Merlot-tinted top and an *ACHEM* more risqué plunging neckline.

Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza chose a grape and lavender number by Oscar de la Renta, which proved that while blondes may have more fun, brunettes can pull off fruit and flower shades better than most. No fruits or flowers that mirror the color of her clutch come to mind, but she definitely worked that shade, too. Sandra Bullock, who was nominated for her star turn in Gravity, also followed the trend in a tri-color gown by Prabal Gurung, which featured a baby-pink bodice and underlining, a black body, and baby-blue skirt. P.S. This woman is 49. Just sayin’.
