Why we love it: Gywneth (pictured here with pal Amanda De Cadenet) knows how to spotlight her best feature – like her killer stems, but she's also careful not to bare too much or go over-the-top with her glam angle. This DVF mini has a few sexy highlights, like a higher hemline and a peek-a-boo sheer neckline, but with a pair of pointed-toe pumps (not the more predictable ankle-strap stilettos) she keeps the look fresh and modern.
Key pieces: You can pull off the same sexy event-worthy look with a similarly cut minidress and subtly sparkly pumps in a moody hue. Like Gwyneth, don't over do it with the add-ons; it's best to go without any major jewelry on this look to echo the same sultry, but easy feel.
