With a train as long as the show's list of performers and a slit as high as the energy level in the crowd, Rita goes glam and glitzy in a plume-covered skirt and plunging bejeweled top (by Alexandre Vauthier Couture), plus an uncharacteristically sleek lob.

The People StyleWatch Celeb Style Council member does us proud in a sexy, slinky black gown with sheer panels.
Seventy-five percent of PEOPLE.com users voted the Girls star's white mesh and floral mini a hit. And in other good news, if anyone proposes to her on the red carpet, she'll already be dressed for the wedding!
