Best-Dressed Nominees

ARE THESE 5 STUNNING STARS THE MOST STYLISH BEST ACTRESS NOMS EVER? SEE THEIR MOST MEMORABLE LOOKS YET

THE HIGH-FASHION DARLING

Julianne Moore

for Still Alice

Stylist: Leslie Fremar

Style Strategy:

It’s possible Moore was born with her “edgier approach to dressing,” Fremar tells People. “It’s not something you can teach. You just have it or you don’t.”

The Standout Look: Custom Givenchy Haute Couture at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.

THE CLASSIC BEAUTY

Reese Witherspoon

for Wild

Stylist: Leslie Fremar

Style Strategy:

“She’s never wearing eclectic things or anything over the top,” says Fremar. “She’s very feminine…. She’s [also] very confident—and that’s sexy.”

The Standout Look:

A custom Lanvin gown with a fuchsia bustier at the Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

THE CHIC PARISIAN

Marion Cotillard

for Two Days, One Night

Stylist: Herself!

Style Strategy: It might sound tough to put together a whole red carpet look, but the star has an advantage: As the innately stylish face of Lady Dior handbags and a brand ambassador, she gets her pick of Dior’s gorgeous gowns.

The Standout Look: A pleated, tiered gown from the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2013 collection at the Governors Awards in Hollywood.

THE MOD MOM

Rosamund Pike

for Gone Girl

Stylist: Ryan Hastings

Style Strategy: Hastings tends to be mum about his clients, but the new mum lets her dresses speak for themselves. Just weeks after giving birth to her second child, she’s showing skin in minis like this one (and who could forget that plunging Globes gown?).

The Standout Look: A flirty and girlie Alexander McQueen at the Palm Springs Film Festival.

THE ELEGANT INGENUE

Felicity Jones

for The Theory of Everything

Stylist: Karla Welch

Style Strategy: According to Welch, “Felicity knows who she is, style-wise,” which helps rule out some dresses immediately. “She’s more modest, and that’s fine. She’s very Grace Kelly or a modern Audrey Hepburn.”

The Standout Look: Quilted Dior Haute Couture at the London premiere of The Theory of Everything.
