charlize theron in diorj'adore j'adore j'adore. hands down my favorite look of the night. everything about her look - the dress, the shoes, the hair, the HEADBAND, the makeup - is pure perfection. you must take a closer look at all the stunning details of her look here.
claire danes in j mendel
from the front the dress looks beautiful but not jaw dropping. but then claire danes turns around to show off the back and i was floored. pictures do not do it justice. this is one of those dresses you need to see up close. i saw pics on fabsugar of this dress first, but then saw her on e's red carpet and had to pause my dvr to take a closer look. it's just that amazing.
emma stone in lanvin
the eagle is just a little questionable but somehow, just somehow emma stone makes it work. she's become not only one of my favorite actresses as of late (see: the help, crazy/stupid/love) but also one of my favorite fashionistas on the red carpet (see her amazing gucci suit from the people's choice awards). the color blocking of the dress is beautiful, the shoulder detailing exquisite and the hair styling and makeup pull it all together. well done, girl.
salma hayek in gucci
i originally had this dress in my "honorable mention" category but because i can't stop looking at and examining the intricate beading of the top half and the way it works so well with the sequined bottom half, i had to bump this up to the best dressed list. ugh, salma hayek looks too amazing doesn't she. PS i want her hair!
honorable mention: reese witherspoon in zac posen. simple and structured, perfectly tousled hair, and a glowing smile. gotta love reese.
