The star’s far from basic LBD (worn to the L.A. premiere of Entourage) is the perfect mix of flirty and sexy thank to its structured cutout bustier and swingy mini skirt. 46 of 175 KIM KARDASHIAN WEST Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Proenza Schouler gown was so hot on the CFDA Awards red carpet (we were abuzz with her post-pregnancy announcement look) that it literally erupted in flames later in the night (don’t worry, Pharrell was there to save the day!). 47 of 175 MICHELLE MONAGHAN Jamie McCarthy/WireImage Michelle’s Monique Lhuillier gown has so many cutout, sheer, metallic elements, but the sum of all the parts is total high-class elegance at the CFDA Awards in N.Y.C. (just like the classy actress herself). 48 of 175 JOAN SMALLS Splash News Online Plunging, backless, zipper and with a high slit? Yep, that’s definitely a “for-supermodels-only” kind of dress Joan chose for the CFDA Awards (hers is Calvin Klein Collection). 49 of 175 DIANE KRUGER Fernando Lucena/Startraks How do you know Diane is a fearless style star? She not only braved the culottes trend, she wore them as part of her Roland Mouret halter cutout jumpsuit at the 8th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Jersey City, New Jersey. 50 of 175 MAE WHITMAN Digital Focus/Splash News Online Mae’s completely-beaded collared A-line dress (worn with Tory Burch heels) is stunning, but it was her gravity-defying top knot skills that really got our attention. 51 of 175 TARAJI P.

(We’re not sure Converse sneakers would have really worked.) 54 of 175 SIENNA MILLER INF was probably hoping for a major wind gust at the Cannes The Sea of Trees premiere to give more context her sheer kite-inspired Valentino dress. 55 of 175 KENDALL JENNER George Pimentel/WireImage Kendall has been twirling up a storm all over France. First, the Cannes red carpet, then Cap d’Antibes for amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala in a magenta halter Calvin Klein Collection gown with Chopard jewels. 56 of 175 NAOMI WATTS Venturelli/WireImage We’ll call Armani Privé silk multi-layer bustier gown at the Cannes The Sea of Trees premiere the mullet of dresses: all business in the front (with that conservative ruffle) and party in the back (with a super skin-baring design). 57 of 175 JENNIFER LOPEZ Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage Can we hope for more looks like this super sexy, stomach-framing Charbel Zoe Couture gown wore to the Billboard Music Awards in her Vegas residency?

Good thing the supermodel makes the height requirement, and good thing she’s got a couple more inches of an updo to add to the Zac Posen design’s statuesque effect at the IWC gala dinner for SIFF in Geneva, Switzerland. 126 of 175 GWYNETH PALTROW Sara De Boer/Startraks For the premiere of Mortdecai in Hollywood, the steps out in a minimalist-chic blue Lanvin gown, python sandals (also by Lanvin) and David Webb jewels – including some serious statement earrings. 127 of 175 NINA DOBREV Michael Buckner/Getty The Vampire Diaries star goes for high drama (seriously, how did this beaded, backless Zuhair Murad gown not get snapped up for the Globes red carpet?) at the InStyle bash. 128 of 175 JENNIFER LOPEZ Landov Didn’t think there could be a more J.Lo outfit than the caftan/cape hybrid she wore on the Globes red carpet? This two-piece, high-slit, abs-baring Amanda Wakeley number comes pretty darn close. 129 of 175 ALESSANDRA AMBRéSIO David Livingston/Getty Showing off her rockin’ bod, Alessandra wore a Zuhair Murad gown and Norman Silverman diamonds that will transition equally well to the after-after party. 130 of 175 KATE HUDSON Jim Smeal/BEImages No matter the award show, is forever giving us body envy in her super sexy red-carpet looks.

The nominee is the epitome of elegance (and bravery) in a white plunging cut-out Vera Wang Collection gown and sparkly Fred Leighton jewels. 134 of 175 JENNIFER LOPEZ Kevork Djansezian/NBC/Getty It wouldn’t be an award show without a seriously sexy look. And the star certainly didn’t disappoint in an art deco-inspired beaded sheer caftan gown by Zuhair Murad. She paired the couture dress with Stuart Weitzman sandals, her signature smoky eye and radiantly glowing skin. 135 of 175 SIENNA MILLER REX USA plunging embroidered Miu Miu satin number originally had us on the fence, but after taking another look at its intricate design from all sides, we’re giving the gown another chance. Which view gets your vote? 136 of 175 KATE BECKINSALE FameFlynet In one of the night’s trendiest gown colors, sparkled in Elie Saab and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, and topped her look with an elegant twisted updo and a perfect tan. 137 of 175 RIHANNA Sara De Boer/Startraks Not everyone can pull off matching her lip to her dress (this one’s Zac Posen) to her stunning Chopard jewels (seriously: check this necklace out), but for , who hosted the first ever Diamond Ball to benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation in Beverly Hills, breaking fashion rules and looking glam is the norm. 138 of 175 PRINCESS KATE James Devaney/GC Images Sure, Kate’s ever-present wavy blowout is a stunner (and appropriate for all occasions). But this elegant side-swept updo for the St. Andrews 600th Anniversary Dinner in N.Y.C. perfectly complements her gorgeous emerald earrings and her favorite Jenny Packham gown. 139 of 175 NIKKI REED Jen Lowery/Splash News Online The actress’s sheer slipdress doesn’t leave much to the imagination. But considering that she’s at the Diamond Ball in Beverly Hills, hosted by – who pretty much considers clothing to always be optional – Nikki’s style is making a lot more sense. 140 of 175 KAT GRAHAM Matt Baron/BEImages The Diamond Ball’s dress code must have been “the sheerer the better.” Kat obliges in this curve-hugging plunging gown complete with mauve lipstick and smoky eyes. 141 of 175 TAYLOR SWIFT Humberto Carreno/Startraks Guess those Pantone people knew what they were talking about when they named 2015’s color of the year Marsala! wears a flirty asymmetrical Reem Acra cutout dress in the hue paired with matching strappy sandals by Jerome C.

Her yellow and white Ali Younes design features lace overlays, embroidery and other intricate embellishments. 143 of 175 SIENNA MILLER Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic at the N.Y.C. premiere of American Sniper. Tell us: is her outfit – a criss-cross, briefs-baring dress with two different types of sheer panels, plus 80 carats of Harry Winston diamonds and a pink-tinged bob – a sure shot? Or is it a misfire instead? 144 of 175 ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO FameFlynet The model must still be in super-sexy, skin-flaunting Victoria’s Secret fashion show mode, because she takes the bod-baring thing to a whole other level at the ACRIA dinner in N.Y.C. in an Alexandre Vauthier gown complete with cutouts and dangerously high slits. 145 of 175 JENNA DEWAN-TATUM Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic Also at the Women in Entertainment breakfast? Jenna, wearing a lace LWD that serves up some seriously bridal inspiration. She pairs the sheath with nude pumps, delicate jewels and that haircut that we’re still obsessing over. (Not to mention, glowing skin as a result of this funny moment.) 146 of 175 LILY COLLINS Masatoshi Okauchi/Rex USA It’s hard to take the attention away from a bright orange gown with a full skirt (not to mention Lily’s signature bold brows, but we can’t stop looking at her cool, translucent heels at the Tokyo premiere of Love, Rosie. 147 of 175 EMILY BLUNT Michael Loccisano/Wireimage Nothing screams “fairytale hair” like milkmaid braids.

Strappy heels and a scarlet lip finish the look. 149 of 175 LILY ALDRIDGE Pascal Le Segretain/Getty The model opted for a (relatively) demure ensemble on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show red carpet. Her dark Cushnie et Ochs crop top and maxi are pretty minimalist, with elegant draping details. 150 of 175 KARLIE KLOSS Mike Marsland/WireImage We’re hoping the model went home early from the British Fashion Awards in London to get her beauty sleep for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show today, but we’re glad she didn’t miss it entirely because this satin halter is just about as head-turning as you can get without showing a ton of skin on the red carpet these days. 151 of 175 KATY PERRY Adam Taylor/Newspix/Rex The flaunts her personality (and her enviable bod) in a playful two-piece Jamie Lee ensemble topped with a navy headband and violet Christian Louboutin pumps at the ARIA Awards in Sydney. 152 of 175 KATE BECKINSALE JB Lacroix/WireImage In her plunging, bod-baring white KaufmanFranco gown and serpentine silver Bulgari choker, could be mistaken for one of the night’s performers – but that bouncy pony is 100 percent Beckinsale. 153 of 175 ANGELINA JOLIE Splash News Online While some of us think that Angelina looks like Olivia Pope in Ralph & Russo pencil dress with attached cape at the Unbroken premiere in London, all of us agree that she looks flawless. 154 of 175 SELENA GOMEZ Rob Latour/Rex Does the star’s long-sleeve gown (worn with a center-parted low bun and geometric golden Neil Lane danglers) seem surprisingly demure for a music awards show? The formfitting cut and plunging back will eliminate that impression pretty quickly. 155 of 175 JENNIFER LOPEZ Jim Smeal/BEImages Her song may be called “Booty,” but is all about the front view in her crisscross, abs-baring pink Reem Acra halter dress, which she sets off with slicked-back hair, sparkling Louboutins and her signature golden glow. 156 of 175 BELLA THORNE Steve Granitz/WireImage The young star channeled a ’70s disco diva at the Horrible Bosses 2 premiere in Hollywood, wearing a white plunging halter-jumpsuit and metallic platform sandals (both by Gucci). 157 of 175 JULIANNE HOUGH Stewart Cook/Rex “I felt like going for a pop, did my slick thing and I’m feeling pretty aggressive,” the says of her Zuhair Murad orange-and-pink head turner, which she teams with a wet-look bob and sparkling Meira T rings. 158 of 175 JESSICA SIMPSON Max DeAngelo/Pacific Coast News The doesn’t hit the red carpet too often these days, but when she does, she brings her A game.

Her strands are wrapped into an elegantly knotted, S-shaped bun. 160 of 175 GIGI HADID Jacopo Raule/Getty Is it too soon to look for New Year’s Eve outfits? Because Gigi flaunts an epic party look at the 2015 Pirelli Calendar red carpet in Milan. Her long-sleeve Emilio Pucci dress has so much going on (embroidery, embellishments, beading, front and back cutouts and lots of color) yet she still pairs it with sexy glittery sandals. 161 of 175 OLIVIA WILDE Mike Marsland/WireImage may have been at the U.K. premiere of Horrible Bosses 2 in London to support her husband, but all eyes were on her in this slinky black Michael Kors gown with sparking embellishments and a sexy side cut-out. 162 of 175 Jennifer Lawrence Steve Granitz/WireImage If you had any doubts about the fashion cred, consider this: It takes real confidence to pull off a bustled skirt in 2014 (or ever) – and she does so with panache (and Aquazurra sandals) at the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 L.A. premiere. 163 of 175 KRISTEN STEWART Splash News Online In a white mini combined with a chainmail cropped turtleneck (because fashion) and coordinating Casadei gray pumps, brings some of her signature edge to the red carpet. 164 of 175 KELLY OSBOURNE Mychal Watts/WireImage For a short-haired (half-buzzed) girl, Kelly is getting very creative with her coif lately! At the 2014 Emery Awards in N.Y.C., her style looks like a pompadour in the front but is actually a zig-zag braid along the side and back. 165 of 175 HILARY SWANK FameFlynet The star sports a super-edgy cornrow-braided half-up style (that flaunts her matching graphic black liner and earrings) at The Homesman premiere in Hollywood. 166 of 175 LILY COLLINS Donato Sardella/Getty At the dinner for Elie Saab in L.A., the actress (who’s clearly a fan of the designer – remember this ombré gown?) opts for a playful black romper with a lace sleeve, plus sheer Louboutin pumps. 167 of 175 ANNE HATHAWAY Paul Morigi/WireImage For the Washington, D.C. Interstellar premiere, the makes a sexy, modern statement in a body-con Calvin Klein Collection LBD with mesh panels (we love how that fluted skirt highlights her killer curves) plus metallic pumps and a tousled do. 168 of 175 ELIZABETH BANKS Dave M. Benett/WireImage The actress’s abstract floral Elie Saab Couture dress at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 premiere in London is gorgeous from the front, but there’s an unexpected chiffon cape if you check out the gown from all angles. 169 of 175 JENNIFER LAWRENCE Dave J Hogan/WireImage Let the (red carpet) games begin!

But the Austrailian actress’ plunging yellow halter gown for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in London definitely makes us crave those sunnier months. 175 of 175 KARINA SMIRNOFF Michael Tran/FilmMagic Looking for holiday dress inspiration? Check out Karina’s long-sleeve embellished LBD at L.A.’s Big Hero 6 premiere.
