TOP PICKS BY STYLE WRITER EDEN WHITSON. A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO PHOTOGRAPHER JUSTIN BARR.

Sunday night’s red carpet at Nelly’s Black and White Ball at the Four Seasons St. Louis was fitting of a 10th anniversary celebration. This year, everyone from local to national celebrities made an effort to look their best. We saw various trends that are hot this spring and picked the best looks for each category, wrapping it up with Best Dressed Women and Best Dressed Men. Also check out the power couples we spotted at the event. More than 600 red carpet and party pics are available on our Home Page.
