Sometimes pretty is enough. So was the case for this week's best dressed stars, who did their best to put a smile on our faces with lovely, feminine designs.
Leading the charge was Emma Watson , whose Wes Gordon  gown got a ladylike boost when she turned around to reveal a bow in back. When embellishments weren't applied to drive the point home, stars like Kristen Bell  and Jennifer Connelly  depended on a girly color palette, and both were pretty in pink. See all the looks we loved on some very chic ladies.
After taking a more dramatic approach for the NYC Veronica Mars premiere , Kristen softened things up in a pastel J. Mendel design on the film's LA carpet.
Scarlett was lovely in Armani 's lace peplum when she attended the Captain America: The Winter Soldier premiere.
Olivia doubled up on the pretty with a garden-party-ready cocktail dress and sweet satin accessories at The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo 's luncheon.
As if she didn't look elegant enough from the front , Emma turned to reveal a dramatic bow on her Wes Gordon  gown at the Berlin Noah premiere.
Stacy put a cool spin on pretty at the Nymphomaniac: Volume I afterparty in a girly Miu Miu  shift.
Rarely does pink look as tough as it did when Jennifer picked Givenchy  Haute Couture's hue for her Mexico City Noah premiere.
Delicate accessories made what could have been a modern red carpet look for Emmy a classic one instead.
What does one wear to celebrate the ultimate lady? In Dianna's case, she chose a printed Carolina Herrera  gown for the designer's gala.
Taking the same style cue, Karlie showed her model form when she stepped out in Carolina Herrera 's cool mint gown.
Camilla worked 50 shades of beige when she arrived at a Salvatore Ferragamo  event in the label's soft gown.
