After choosing a heavily embroidered Maison Martin Margiela mini in the morning, Marion goes with a tiered Christian Dior Couture high-low dress with an embellished back, plus peep-toe clunkers, for the Two Days, One Night evening premiere. 02 of 67 JESSICA CHASTAIN Mike Marsland/Wireimage This is not what we look like when we wear dresses in windy conditions. looks graceful despite the gusts at the Foxcatcher premiere in her Elie Saab Couture gown, a one-shoulder lavender creation with a high slit, plus silver Roger Vivier heels. 03 of 67 JESS WEIXLER George Pimentel/Wireimage We’re used to updos reminding us of pastries, but this is the first one that reminds us of a candy necklace. The actress wears her hair center-parted and slicked down (to show off those diamond-encrusted earrings) then pulled into an intricate mass of braidlike twists at the Foxcatcher premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. 04 of 67 CATE BLANCHETT Graham Whitby Boot/Startraks Photo The bold embellished bodice (featuring more colors and materials than we can count) on Givenchy gown and her shoulder-skimming Chopard earrings are balanced out by a totally sheer back and an understated black skirt at the How to Train Your Dragon 2 premiere. 05 of 67 BLAKE LIVELY David Fisher/Rex In case her previous appearance at Cannes didn’t leave you totally slack-jawed, hits the carpet in a second stunner (this one, a lace iridescent Chanel Couture creation), flower-shaped Lorraine Schwartz earrings and Sophia Webster heels while having another great hair day at the Mr. Turner premiere. 06 of 67 DIANE KRUGER Johns PKI/Splash News Online Diane does it again – makes us drool over her wardrobe, that is – in a floral-print Giambattista Valli Couture dress with a chic high-low hem at the George Fostet Peabody Awards in N.Y.C. 07 of 67 SELENA GOMEZ John Lamparski/Wireimage A row of satin bows up the wow factor of Lanvin LBD (so does the Lorraine Schwartz diamond bracelet) at the American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Gala in N.Y.C. 08 of 67 HEIDI KLUM Rob Kim/Getty Instead of using bobby pins to hold back her side-swept style, the opts for double side braids at the Up2Us Gala in N.Y.C. 09 of 67 LAETITIA CASTA Venturelli/Wireimage We love the crystal and petal embellishments on the French model’s high-low dress at the Grace of Monaco premiere in Cannes, but when she turns around we have a flashback to another strappy Dior gown worn by at the Golden Globes. 10 of 67 EMMY ROSSUM Johns PKI/Splash News Online Color us green with envy over the floor-length Lanvin gown Emmy gets to wear to the American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Gala in N.Y.C. 11 of 67 JENNIFER LAWRENCE JGM/Pacific Coast News Add this look to list of styles for a growing-out pixie. She sports a deep side part (all the better for showing off that spider earring) and pulls her hair back into a French twist for the N.Y.C. premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past. 12 of 67 DEBRA MESSING Robin Platzer/Twin Images With that intricate wrap-around strap detailing and all those tiny cutouts on the actress’s blood-orange KaufmanFranco dress (seen at the NBC upfront presentation in N.Y.C.), we can’t help but wonder how long it took her to slip into this little number? 13 of 67 KARLIE KLOSS Splash News Online The supermodel may not be one of the dancers performing at the American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala in N.Y.C, but she certainly has the body of one. Karlie shows off her long and lean figure in a black-and-cream dress featuring a skin-baring halter with a tiny keyhole cutout. 14 of 67 ANGELINA JOLIE Dave M. Benett/Wireimage The hasn’t looked this sparkly since she wore Atelier Versace at the 2012 Golden Globes. She breaks out a gown from the same design house, this time in black and complete with Swarovski crystal embroidery and a cape, for a private reception for Maleficent in London. 15 of 67 KRISTEN BELL Kristina Bumphrey/StarPix/Startracks Photo Killer curves ahead! The hourglass-shaped embellishment of sequins and beading on Zuhair Murad gown helps play up her petite frame at the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala in N.Y.C. 16 of 67 ALI LARTER FameFlynet The ivory Carolina Herrera silk gown features a high neck, an abstract print and an open back, plus one unexpected pop of color via an orange insert at the hemline, all seen at the Naked Princess boutique opening in Beverly Hills. 17 of 67 RUMER WILLIS Paul Archuleta/Filmmagic Also at the the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s An Evening With Women event, Rumor tops off her embroidered gold Lorena Sarbu fringe dress and Christian Louboutin gladiator sandals with electric-pink hair. 18 of 67 ELIZABETH OLSEN JB Lacroix/Wireimage Lizzie keeps things simple in a midnight-black Chloé open-back gown and layered necklace at the L.A. premiere of Godzilla. 19 of 67 LEA MICHELE Evan Agostini/Invision/AP Remember: What we’re asking you to do is vote for the best side of the metallic Altuzarra gown with its plunging neckline, high slit and open back at the Met Gala in N.Y.C., not the most NSFW angle. 20 of 67 TAYLOR SWIFT Evan Agostini/Invision/AP At the 2014 Met Gala 21 of 67 NICOLE RICHIE AdMedia/Splash News Online In case you were unclear on signature gown style, she reminds you at the Met Ball by picking a frame-hugging Donna Karan Atelier design with barely-there straps and a rear view that shows a whole lotta skin. 22 of 67 DIANE KRUGER Andres Otero/WENN Normally, it’s a question of better from the back or front, but in the case of the Hugo Boss gown Diane selected for Fashion Prom, it’s about deciding whether you like the left side (soft pleats) or the right side (sparkly embroidery). 23 of 67 ZOË SALDANA SartorialPhoto/Splash News Online What open-back halter bodysuit (yes, it’s a bodysuit) lacks in fabric, her floral Michael Kors skirt more than makes up for. She commands attention the second she hits the red carpet at Fashion Prom thanks to that black-and-white sculptural creation. 24 of 67 EMMA STONE Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty There’s so much to love about this Met Gala look that we need a second to unpack it all. The pink Thakoon crop top. The high-slit draped raspberry skirt with a slightly lighter lining (also Thakoon). The metallic sandals. The studded clutch. The gorgeous fishtail. The minimal makeup. Well done, , well done. 25 of 67 SARAH JESSICA PARKER SartorialPhoto/Splash News Online There’s so much going on with the Met Gala black-and-white gown (and hair!), that we had to put it in GIF form. The look is theme-appropriate and totally Charles James from the front, but from the back, it reads Oscar de la Renta (literally – his name is stitched onto the train). 26 of 67 CHLOË SEVIGNY Carlo Allegri/Reuters/Landov If you think those two face-framing tendrils are an interesting choice for Met, just keep on clicking. The hairstyle only gets more noteworthy as you see what else is going on: She’s also sporting two braided pigtails. 27 of 67 HAILEE STEINFELD Richard Young/Rex/Startraks Photo She sports the same color palette as the men at the Met Gala, but Hailee’s two-tone Prabal Gurung creation is all feminine thanks to the hourglass shape of the white section, the big skirt and the dainty buttons up the back. 28 of 67 KATE BOSWORTH All Access Photo/Splash News Online The date for Met (and also the designer of her dress), Stella McCartney, is truly a master at finding fresh ways to show skin. She created a salmon-hued gown with two midriff-flaunting slashes on the torso and a cool weblike mass of straps visible from the rear. 29 of 67 CHRISSY TEIGEN Gilbert Flores/Broadimage While the front of the supermodel’s Swarovski-covered Ralph Lauren Collection Met gown appears demure thanks to the high ruffled neckline, other angles reveal that the dress is not quite as conservative as you might have thought at first glance. 30 of 67 ANNA KENDRICK Larry Busacca/Getty We think Charles James would approve of Anna’s vintage-feeling J. Mendel gown for the Met Ball … even if it does boast a tiny triangular cutout just below the bustline and sheer panels at the sides, plus another cutout at the back. 31 of 67 LEA MICHELE Kevin Johnson/Press Line Photos/Splash News Online complements her Naeem Khan beaded illusion dress with glossy waves for the Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s Taste for a Cure benefit in L.A. 32 of 67 EMMA ROBERTS Amanda Schwab/Startraks Photo The actress takes a trip to the dark side in a Balenciaga velvet top and pencil skirt, adding a few extra inches with a pair of Christian Louboutin spikes at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Palo Alto in N.Y.C. 33 of 67 CARRIE UNDERWOOD Splash News Online We can always count on to give us a dazzling gown moment on the red carpet. The country queen wears an ultra-feminine silver Claire Pettibone number with a blossom embellished tulle overlay to the Time 100 Gala in N.Y.C. 34 of 67 SIENNA MILLER Rex USA proves she’s every inch an It girl in a crocheted metallic mini dress and embroidered lace peep-toe booties at the Topshop dinner in London. 35 of 67 JORDIN SPARKS iPhoto Feeling the urge to purge all the gray, black and brown from your wardrobe? The singer brings two pops of color to the Mom’s Night Out premiere in Hollywood via a zip-up orange fit-and-flare and pink sandals. 36 of 67 ZOË SALDANA Nancy Kaszerman/Zuma Zoë teaches us a lesson in complementary colors, matching the coral collar on her blue-and-white Roksanda Ilincic top and skirt with her pointed-toe Louboutina and deep-apricot lip color at the AOL NewFronts in N.Y.C. 37 of 67 DUCHESS CATHERINE PA Photos/Landov The had more than one major hair moment on the Royal Tour Down Under, but this updo is our hands-down favorite. The curled tendrils at the top of the Duchess’s chignon mirror the guipure lace sleeves of her Lela Rose dress. 38 of 67 EMMA STONE Jennifer Graylock/Sipa comes in with bangs! The flame-haired actress wears a Prada slip dress with a caged metal structure and shows off her new fringed hairstyle at the N.Y.C. premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. 39 of 67 LESLIE MANN Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic Leslie looks sexy and seasonally appropriate in a fuchsia bandeau top and poppy red ball skirt from Monique Lhuillier, plus Oscar Tiye sandals, at the premiere of The Other Woman in L.A. 40 of 67 SOFIA VERGARA Splash News Online What do you get when you combine and white lace? Major sex appeal. The actress shows plenty of cleavage and a hint of thigh in a silk and sheer Zuhair Murad dress at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Chef in N.Y.C. 41 of 67 KATIE HOLMES Jamie McCarthy/Getty looks great from the neck down in her satin Zac Posen dress at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Miss Meadows in N.Y.C. We’ll let you draw your own conclusions about what’s going on above there. 42 of 67 LEIGHTON MEESTER Johns PKI/Splash News Online Have we told you how nice it is to see you back on the red carpet, ? The actress shimmers in an icy-blue Emporio Armani shift dress at the Tribeca Film Festival screening of The Vampire Diaries in N.Y.C. 43 of 67 EMMA STONE Chad Buchanan/GC Images Choosing your favorite side of baby-blue creation (selected for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Berlin photocall) all comes down to whether you’re all about the burgundy red beaded embellishments or the dramatic cape. 44 of 67 SOLANGE KNOWLES Donato Sardella/Getty Clearly, Solange never met a color she didn’t like to wear. The singer goes for head-to-toe citrus in an orange jacket, skirt and strappy sandals at the launch of Choo.08 in L.A. 45 of 67 LUPITA NYONG'O Michael Buckner/Getty Thought she only did gorgeous, sweeping gowns? The breakout style star of 2014 shows she can do sassy just as easily in this heavily embellished, bright and funky Chanel creation, worn with blue Casadei pumps and bold metallic shadow. 46 of 67 ZENDAYA Matt Baron/BEImages The Disney star (in Emanuel Ungaro) wears every trend you’re into for spring, cranked up to 11: neons, florals, a slit, ombré tips, nude lips and embellished pumps. 47 of 67 VICTORIA JUSTICE Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP How many swatches of fabric were woven together to create this one-shoulder bubblegum-pink Atelier Versace mini, seen at the MTV Movie Awards in L.A.? You’ll have to take it in from every angle to try to count them. 48 of 67 ELLIE GOULDING FayesVision/WENN If you were a bride who wanted to show off her amazing obliques but also wanted to stash sandwiches for later, this would be the perfect dress for you. But is it perfect for the MTV Movie Awards? Our verdict is still out on the “I Need Your Love” singer’s sweet white gown. 49 of 67 EMMA STONE Fred Duval/Filmmagic The bright-yellow gown, those fiery retro waves, the bold fuchsia lip color! gives us a one-two-three knockout punch of color in an Atelier Versace gown at the world premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in London. 50 of 67 JESSICA BIEL Anthony Behar/Sipa accessorizes a velvet Oscar de la Renta halter gown with a diamond drop statement necklace – and that statement is, “I’m worth $325,000!” – for the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball in N.Y.C. 51 of 67 KATE BOSWORTH Johns PKI/Splash News Online Also at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball in N.Y.C., takes a lipstick risk, pairing her pink strapless Katie Ermilio gown with a bold orange pout. 52 of 67 JULIANNE HOUGH Tony DiMaio/Startraks Photo Julianne shows off her toned tummy in a pale-pink cutout dress from Philosophy at the Kaleidoscope Ball in L.A. Strappy metallic sandals and a blush clutch complete the ensemble. 53 of 67 MARIA MENOUNOS AdMedia/Splash News Online Bling bling! We love the embellished neckline of the actress s black, body-con column gown at the Kaleidoscope Ball in Beverly Hills, but it s not until she turns around that we see the jewel-encrusted extension all the way down her sheer back. 54 of 67 OLIVIA MUNN Jason Merritt/Getty We don’t know what to note first: the crazy-high slit or the crazy-sexy neckline on the actress’s Reem Acra coral creation, which also features crystal detailing at the shoulders and an open back. 55 of 67 TAYLOR SWIFT Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic Not even a country awards show can escape the crop top trend. Taylor is smokin’ hot in an abs-revealing shrunken white cutout tee, a high-waist maxi with a major slit (both my J. Mendel), plus chic strappy Casadei sandals. 56 of 67 SHAKIRA Jon Kopaloff/Filmmagic We started to count the number of cutouts on the supercool blue-green Zuhair Murad gown, but stopped when we realized it would take too long. And really, are they still called cutouts when the dress looks inspired by a spiderweb or a threadbare tee? 57 of 67 EMMA WATSON James Higgins/Splash News Online ends her Noah red carpet tour in London by trying something new, slipping into a one-of-a-kind Ralph Lauren Collection halter. Rose-gold Jennifer Fisher cuffs, white Jimmy Choos and an upswept hairstyle are the finishing touches to the romantic ensemble. 58 of 67 KIERNAN SHIPKA Jason LaVeris/Filmmagic The sophisticated floral print of the Mad Men actress’s jacquard Nina Ricci dress is the first thing that caught our eye. But when she spun around at the season 7 premiere of the show in Hollywood, all our attention was on that unexpected deep-V plunge. 59 of 67 JESSICA PARé Cliffe Fraser/Splash News Online She may play a ’60s siren on TV, but Jessica looks like she’s sent from the future in a sculptural green jacquard one-shoulder Antonio Berardi dress at the season 7 premiere of Mad Men in L.A. 60 of 67 JANUARY JONES Peter West/ACE/INF Though most of you voted against the Roksanda Ilincic dress, you have to admit her hair is a whole different story. She wears it in a messy side braid, leaving a few face-framing pieces out at the Mad Men Season 7 premiere in Hollywood. 61 of 67 KATE UPTON David Fisher/Rex USA Big hair. Big diamonds. Big impact. The actress goes for old-Hollywood glam at the London premiere of The Other Woman with voluminous pompadour in the front and a sleek chignon at the back. 62 of 67 KATE BECKINSALE Alpha /Landov What’s better than cutouts? Swarovski-crystal-trimmed cutouts, like the ones seen on burgundy Jenny Packham gown (with crystals at the neckline, too) at the Jameson Empire Film Awards in London. 63 of 67 KATY PERRY Nate Beckett/Splash News Online One of the red carpet highlights at the MOCA gala in L.A.: in a paneled black Versace Collection dress with neon-yellow accents, pink-and-black PVC Louboutins and a bright-white Edie Parker clutch. 64 of 67 EMMA WATSON Splash News Online To complement her one-of-a-kind dress at the London premiere of Noah, sports a unique updo: a loose bun with a side-swept part and pops of bling pinned to the back. 65 of 67 SHAILENE WOODLEY Nils Jorgensen/Capital Pictures/Retna Shailene gives us the blues – in a good way – in a curve-skimming lace-trimmed Stella McCartney gown with a fishtail train at the UK premiere of Divergent in London, adding edge with a Lina Noel armlet. 66 of 67 EMMA WATSON Sartorial Photo/Splash News Online takes a dramatic turn in a black boatneck-collar Oscar de la Renta gown (with a train!) at the N.Y.C. premiere of Noah, punctuating the ensemble with an on-trend orange lip and matching Roger Vivier clutch. 67 of 67 MELISSA JOAN HART Rachel Murray/Getty It’s not just the sheer cutouts at the obliques that amp up the visual appeal of the actress’s navy gown. She turns around to reveal an even sexier rear view – an open back – at the Families Matter Benefit in Beverly Hills.
