There are certain things girls love that guys just can’t appreciate (see: bangs, high-waisted anything, an intricate cat eye). But everyone can agree on this week’s best dressed star, Jessica Alba, who pulled off the win with over 21,000 votes — and looked like a total smokeshow in the process.

Here’s why the look, spotted at the Guys Choice Awards in L.A., is considered “guy hot”: The smoky eye. The “I woke up like this” hair. The leather detailing. The sexy heels. Oh, and did we mention the skin? Not only is her David Koma dress strapless, it also shows hints of abs via sheer fabric across the waist.
And here’s why we appreciate the look: That smoky eye is flawlessly done. The hair has been blown out to perfection, adding just the right amount of volume to her straight strands. The dress is super trendy, from the leather touches and sheer cutouts to the midi length of the skirt. And, of course, we love a good strappy heel.
Coming in both second and third place was Sandra Bullock, who had two must-see looks this week. The first one, also at the Guys Choice Awards, was a hot-pink Roland Mouret mini; the second was a blue Vionnet gown with cutouts and a pale-yellow lining (worn in Hollywood for the AFI Lifetime Achievement: A Tribute to Jane Fonda). Both dresses had us tossing out our all-black wardrobe (and thanking our lucky stars that Sandy is back on the red carpet!).
Tell us: Do you think Jessica deserved the best dressed title? Or were you loving Sandra’s looks more?
