“I’m going to wear two very unexpected gowns today,” said the actress when she woke up this morning (or at least we imagine she did). After choosing a heavily embroidered Maison Martin Margiela mini in the morning, Marion goes with a tiered Christian Dior Couture high-low dress with an embellished back, plus peep-toe clunkers, for the Two Days, One Night evening premiere.
This is not what we look like when we wear dresses in windy conditions. looks graceful despite the gusts at the Foxcatcher premiere in her Elie Saab Couture gown, a one-shoulder lavender creation with a high slit, plus silver Roger Vivier heels.
We’re used to updos reminding us of pastries, but this is the first one that reminds us of a candy necklace. The actress wears her hair center-parted and slicked down (to show off those diamond-encrusted earrings) then pulled into an intricate mass of braidlike twists at the Foxcatcher premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
The bold embellished bodice (featuring more colors and materials than we can count) on Givenchy gown and her shoulder-skimming Chopard earrings are balanced out by a totally sheer back and an understated black skirt at the How to Train Your Dragon 2 premiere.
In case her previous appearance at Cannes didn’t leave you totally slack-jawed, hits the carpet in a second stunner (this one, a lace iridescent Chanel Couture creation), flower-shaped Lorraine Schwartz earrings and Sophia Webster heels while having another great hair day at the Mr. Turner premiere.
We love the crystal and petal embellishments on the French model’s high-low dress at the Grace of Monaco premiere in Cannes, but when she turns around we have a flashback to another strappy Dior gown worn by at the Golden Globes.
Add this look to list of styles for a growing-out pixie. She sports a deep side part (all the better for showing off that spider earring) and pulls her hair back into a French twist for the N.Y.C. premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
With that intricate wrap-around strap detailing and all those tiny cutouts on the actress’s blood-orange KaufmanFranco dress (seen at the NBC upfront presentation in N.Y.C.), we can’t help but wonder how long it took her to slip into this little number?
The supermodel may not be one of the dancers performing at the American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala in N.Y.C, but she certainly has the body of one. Karlie shows off her long and lean figure in a black-and-cream dress featuring a skin-baring halter with a tiny keyhole cutout.
The ivory Carolina Herrera silk gown features a high neck, an abstract print and an open back, plus one unexpected pop of color via an orange insert at the hemline, all seen at the Naked Princess boutique opening in Beverly Hills.
Also at the the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s An Evening With Women event, Rumor tops off her embroidered gold Lorena Sarbu fringe dress and Christian Louboutin gladiator sandals with electric-pink hair.
In case you were unclear on signature gown style, she reminds you at the Met Ball by picking a frame-hugging Donna Karan Atelier design with barely-there straps and a rear view that shows a whole lotta skin.
Normally, it’s a question of better from the back or front, but in the case of the Hugo Boss gown Diane selected for Fashion Prom, it’s about deciding whether you like the left side (soft pleats) or the right side (sparkly embroidery).
What open-back halter bodysuit (yes, it’s a bodysuit) lacks in fabric, her floral Michael Kors skirt more than makes up for. She commands attention the second she hits the red carpet at Fashion Prom thanks to that black-and-white sculptural creation.
There’s so much to love about this Met Gala look that we need a second to unpack it all. The pink Thakoon crop top. The high-slit draped raspberry skirt with a slightly lighter lining (also Thakoon). The metallic sandals. The studded clutch. The gorgeous fishtail. The minimal makeup. Well done, , well done.
There’s so much going on with the Met Gala black-and-white gown (and hair!), that we had to put it in GIF form. The look is theme-appropriate and totally Charles James from the front, but from the back, it reads Oscar de la Renta (literally – his name is stitched onto the train).
If you think those two face-framing tendrils are an interesting choice for Met, just keep on clicking. The hairstyle only gets more noteworthy as you see what else is going on: She’s also sporting two braided pigtails.
She sports the same color palette as the men at the Met Gala, but Hailee’s two-tone Prabal Gurung creation is all feminine thanks to the hourglass shape of the white section, the big skirt and the dainty buttons up the back.
The date for Met (and also the designer of her dress), Stella McCartney, is truly a master at finding fresh ways to show skin. She created a salmon-hued gown with two midriff-flaunting slashes on the torso and a cool weblike mass of straps visible from the rear.
While the front of the supermodel’s Swarovski-covered Ralph Lauren Collection Met gown appears demure thanks to the high ruffled neckline, other angles reveal that the dress is not quite as conservative as you might have thought at first glance.
We think Charles James would approve of Anna’s vintage-feeling J. Mendel gown for the Met Ball … even if it does boast a tiny triangular cutout just below the bustline and sheer panels at the sides, plus another cutout at the back.
The actress takes a trip to the dark side in a Balenciaga velvet top and pencil skirt, adding a few extra inches with a pair of Christian Louboutin spikes at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Palo Alto in N.Y.C.
We can always count on to give us a dazzling gown moment on the red carpet. The country queen wears an ultra-feminine silver Claire Pettibone number with a blossom embellished tulle overlay to the Time 100 Gala in N.Y.C.
Feeling the urge to purge all the gray, black and brown from your wardrobe? The singer brings two pops of color to the Mom’s Night Out premiere in Hollywood via a zip-up orange fit-and-flare and pink sandals.
Zoë teaches us a lesson in complementary colors, matching the coral collar on her blue-and-white Roksanda Ilincic top and skirt with her pointed-toe Louboutina and deep-apricot lip color at the AOL NewFronts in N.Y.C.
The had more than one major hair moment on the Royal Tour Down Under, but this updo is our hands-down favorite. The curled tendrils at the top of the Duchess’s chignon mirror the guipure lace sleeves of her Lela Rose dress.
What do you get when you combine and white lace? Major sex appeal. The actress shows plenty of cleavage and a hint of thigh in a silk and sheer Zuhair Murad dress at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Chef in N.Y.C.
Have we told you how nice it is to see you back on the red carpet, ? The actress shimmers in an icy-blue Emporio Armani shift dress at the Tribeca Film Festival screening of The Vampire Diaries in N.Y.C.
Choosing your favorite side of baby-blue creation (selected for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Berlin photocall) all comes down to whether you’re all about the burgundy red beaded embellishments or the dramatic cape.
Thought she only did gorgeous, sweeping gowns? The breakout style star of 2014 shows she can do sassy just as easily in this heavily embellished, bright and funky Chanel creation, worn with blue Casadei pumps and bold metallic shadow.
How many swatches of fabric were woven together to create this one-shoulder bubblegum-pink Atelier Versace mini, seen at the MTV Movie Awards in L.A.? You’ll have to take it in from every angle to try to count them.
If you were a bride who wanted to show off her amazing obliques but also wanted to stash sandwiches for later, this would be the perfect dress for you. But is it perfect for the MTV Movie Awards? Our verdict is still out on the “I Need Your Love” singer’s sweet white gown.
The bright-yellow gown, those fiery retro waves, the bold fuchsia lip color! gives us a one-two-three knockout punch of color in an Atelier Versace gown at the world premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in London.
Bling bling! We love the embellished neckline of the actress s black, body-con column gown at the Kaleidoscope Ball in Beverly Hills, but it s not until she turns around that we see the jewel-encrusted extension all the way down her sheer back.
Not even a country awards show can escape the crop top trend. Taylor is smokin’ hot in an abs-revealing shrunken white cutout tee, a high-waist maxi with a major slit (both my J. Mendel), plus chic strappy Casadei sandals.
We started to count the number of cutouts on the supercool blue-green Zuhair Murad gown, but stopped when we realized it would take too long. And really, are they still called cutouts when the dress looks inspired by a spiderweb or a threadbare tee?
ends her Noah red carpet tour in London by trying something new, slipping into a one-of-a-kind Ralph Lauren Collection halter. Rose-gold Jennifer Fisher cuffs, white Jimmy Choos and an upswept hairstyle are the finishing touches to the romantic ensemble.
The sophisticated floral print of the Mad Men actress’s jacquard Nina Ricci dress is the first thing that caught our eye. But when she spun around at the season 7 premiere of the show in Hollywood, all our attention was on that unexpected deep-V plunge.
Though most of you voted against the Roksanda Ilincic dress, you have to admit her hair is a whole different story. She wears it in a messy side braid, leaving a few face-framing pieces out at the Mad Men Season 7 premiere in Hollywood.
Shailene gives us the blues – in a good way – in a curve-skimming lace-trimmed Stella McCartney gown with a fishtail train at the UK premiere of Divergent in London, adding edge with a Lina Noel armlet.
takes a dramatic turn in a black boatneck-collar Oscar de la Renta gown (with a train!) at the N.Y.C. premiere of Noah, punctuating the ensemble with an on-trend orange lip and matching Roger Vivier clutch.
It’s not just the sheer cutouts at the obliques that amp up the visual appeal of the actress’s navy gown. She turns around to reveal an even sexier rear view – an open back – at the Families Matter Benefit in Beverly Hills.
