10: OSCAR DE LA RENTA AT COMIC-CON, 2012
When we think of Oscar, we picture princessy ball gowns, but shakes things up and chooses a fun, short number by the designer for the San Diego Breaking Dawn: Part 2 premiere. We love the dress’s floral accents, which she complements with silver bow-adorned heels and a sparkling clutch.

9: GIVENCHY AT TEEN CHOICE AWARDS, 2011
Sometimes the biggest style statement comes from the simplest designs, and Ashley proves that point in this sleek black-and-white dress. The cut is flattering without being overtly sexy, and her black strappy sandals add just the right amount of edge.

8: FENDI AT SKATELAND PREMIERE, 2011
Most starlets go for supersexy, revealing looks on the red carpet, but Ashley knows she doesn’t have to show a ton of skin to turn heads. At the screening, the actress is effortlessly chic in a salmon one-sleeve gown featuring an asymmetrical skirt.

7: DONNA KARAN AT MET GALA, 2011
The face of DKNY does the brand’s designer proud in this stunner that seems like it was made for her (oh right, that’s because it was). We’re smitten with every aspect of this look, from the mermaid cut and the intricate beading to the side-swept bun and dazzling earrings.

6: GIAMBATTISTA VALLI AT AMFAR GALA, 2013
For some women, a stunning all-white column is reserved for a trip down the aisle, but Ashley looks so flawless in her belted gown that we’d recommend she wear it as often as possible.

4: L'WREN SCOTT AT BREAKING DAWN: PART 2 BELGIUM PREMIERE, 2011
We would try to steal this leg- and cleavage-bearing dress, but we have a feeling nobody else would look as good in the beaded design as Ashley does.

3: DONNA KARAN ATELIER AT BREAKING DAWN: PART 2 N.Y.C. PREMIERE, 2012
The red carpet pro takes an already awesome navy silk gown to the next level by choosing blue eye makeup and nail polish, plus a slicked-back hairstyle to show off every inch of the corseted bodice.

2: DONNA KARAN ATELIER AT MET GALA, 2012
The Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala is basically just one amazing gown after another, so standing out is quite a challenge. But Ashley pulls it off in this amazing white number, which she wisely pairs with minimal accessories (because who would want to distract from a dress like this?).

1: DONNA KARAN ATELIER AT THE APPARITION PREMIERE, 2012
It’s the gown that unhinged jaws (male and female) around the globe. This look has everything going for it: the Hollywood bombshell silhouette with that sexy slit, the look-at-me shade of pink, the leg-lengthening nude heels, the highlighted hair and the girlie lip color.
