Hello, angels! With the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airing tonight, two of our favorites — Adriana Lima and Karlie Kloss — were out last night showcasing two party-perfect looks for anyone seeking to infuse their holiday wardrobe with serious sex appeal. Adriana embodied the lady in red with a strapless lace dress and a pair of studded red stilettos. Karlie stayed angelic in a structured white dress by KaufmanFranco, accessorized with a pair of drop earrings and metallic heels. Which take on holiday dressing would you rather wear?
Evangeline Lilly stole the show on Monday night at the Berlin premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The actress chose a black gown from Alberta Ferretti's Fall 2013 collection, which features lace sleeves and tiers of tulle that cascade down the skirt.
The dress might sound serious, but Lilly looked like she was having a blast — and when you're posing on a red carpet that features a gigantic dragon, how could you not?
Wearing a white dress after Labor Day wasn't the only shock about Felicity Jones's red carpet look. The actress literally put her best foot forward when she stepped out for the New York premiere of The Invisible Woman in hot-pink Christian Dior heels.
The stilettos were the perfect complement to Felicity's crisp design, also by Dior, and added a showstopping pop of color to an otherwise subdued look. Do you love her bright stilettos, or would you rather she stuck to the monochromatic ensemble she had going with her sleek dress and clutch?
With top costume designers like Catherine Martin of The Great Gatsby and Trish Summerville of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, it's hard to ignore the stunning styles of this year's blockbuster hits, but that's not to say the small screen didn't hold its own in the fashion arena. Television favorites like Pretty Little Liars, Scandal, Nashville, and The Carrie Diaries have developed cult followings that extend well beyond the drama and love triangles. From sophisticated separates to more-is-more performance looks to mixed-print masterpieces, our favorite fashion-centric shows run the style gamut. While each of these primetime programs fills a different sartorial void, we're relying on your vote by Dec. 16 to help us decide which show should be crowned most fashionable for 2013!
We might look at the dresses that walk the red carpet first, but make no mistake — we're giving Hollywood's shoes equal attention. It's been a long year of formal dressing (don't the Oscars feel like light-years ago?), and we had plenty to pick from. Herein, the celebrity shoes that most impressed us this year.
When Winter weather approaches the bone-chilling mark, being warm can take precedence over looking cute. Thankfully, Reese Witherspoon's recent Paris tour left us with a chic-but-toasty outfit we can copy in the upcoming months. Her asymmetrical zip Sandro jacket has the fur-lined hood we love on our puffer coat, but felt stylish, thanks to leather-block sleeves. She kept everything else super simple: black skinny trousers, flat buckle boots, and classic Wayfarers. Done and done.
If you follow Bar Refaeli's lead, you could very well wear your sweatshirt beyond the gym. Instead of adding hers to layer up yoga pants and a tank, Bar took her cool-girl Kenzo sweatshirt out to dinner with trousers and heels. It may just be one of our favorite ways to get dressed up for a wintertime night out or — with a blazer to polish it off — our new favorite way to dress for the office.

Ah, the red carpet. The place where celebrities come out in their most gorgeous gowns and sexiest minis. While many looks have us talking the next day, only a selection of standouts are truly unforgettable — looks that we'll be thinking about long after the ball drops on New Year's Eve. From Kate Hudson's stunning turquoise Reem Acra at an NYC bash to Kerry Washington's headline-grabbing Prada number at the Oscars, these dresses are destined to go down in red carpet history.
Now, we've compiled a list of the 64 top frocks of the year, and we're enlisting your help to choose the very best red carpet look. So, from Eva Longoria to Emily Blunt, from Jennifer Aniston to Jennifer Lawrence, vote for your favorite now when you play the Best Red Carpet Look of 2013 bracket right here!
Diane Kruger had our undivided attention at the European Film Awards this weekend in a glitzy Valentino Couture gown and a Coach Madison caviar framed clutch. It wasn't just the dress's sparkle that turned heads — the actress, who's never been afraid of a showstopping gown, dared to go pretty sheer, revealing not just a flash of skin but also a pair of black underwear. Sure, the gown's beading helped to conceal so that the peekaboo effect wasn't quite so in your face, but we still got a glimpse of Diane's underthings.
Truthfully, we'd be hard-pressed to find a look from Miss Kruger that didn't play fast and loose with the rules of red carpet dressing. The actress often pushes the boundaries and embraces bold, fashion-forward couture. The question is — can she pull it off? Are you a fan of Diane's latest look?
Coincidentally or not, the dresses on a red carpet often seem to display a common theme — not so for this weekend's TrevorLive event in Los Angeles. The looks we loved ran the gamut from long and slinky to short and sassy, with colors ranging all the way from chocolatey brown to buttercup yellow. Nina Dobrev perfected the princess vibe in a cornflower blue Elie Saab gown and Rupert Sanderson heels, while Naya Rivera did a slinky, sultry brown velvet Donna Karan number that hit at midcalf and wore Stuart Weitzman sandals. Sarah Michelle Gellar might've played it safest of all in a flippy black minidress, and Fergie, as always, jumped furthest outside the box in a high-collared, strong shouldered yellow number that looked pulled from the closet of an '80s power-dresser.
All four women showed up in really different looks, which should make voting for a favorite fairly easy. Tell us, which is your favorite?
