When Donatella Versace throws a party, a star-studded crowd will attend. Case in point: the designer heralded a new era of Versus Versace and debuted JW Anderson's first capsule collection for the brand last night, and to celebrate, Jaime King, Hayden Panettiere, and Heidi Klum dressed up for the occasion. While both Panettiere and Klum selected dresses from Versace's Spring '13 collection, King took the head-to-toe Versus route. And in doing so, the Hart of Dixie star showed off a much more edged-up, safety-pin-included look. Three different plays on evening glamour (with an apropos Versace rocker-girl twist) and only one can be named "best dressed." Vote for your favorite below!
The sunnier seasons herald in a much more relaxed approach to dressing. For most, that means shedding the layers, and keeping it basic. For others — we count repeat performer Diane Kruger among them — it means breaking out the crop top. Last year, we saw the resurgence of bare midriffs in a noticeable way, and now it's becoming the go-to trend for Hollywood's A-list.
And thanks to Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs, the latest set of crop top-wearing stars aren't limiting the silhouette to the usual sculpted bralette style. Instead, Kruger chose a sportier version, Doutzen Kroes went with stripes and long sleeves, and Julia Restoin Roitfeld's breezy white iteration reminded us of a sexy slip dress. Since it's only mid-May and Summer hasn't even officially started, we're wondering: Will you be taking the crop-top look for a spin this season?
Star Trek's latest chapter isn't just for Trekkies. Zoe Saldana and Alice Eve's promo tour has already been proof of the glamour on Star Trek Into Darkness's red carpets. But last night's premiere got quadruple the celebrity-style treatment when Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Morrison joined the film's leading ladies in LA. Jennifer channeled Disco-era dazzle in a sequined jumpsuit, then polished it off with nude platform pumps and a pair of major jewel-drop earrings. Kate took a more subtle approach in a riff on the classic LBD, a strapless and asymmetrical-hemmed dress from Alberta Ferretti, which she amped up with a playful pair of neon sandals. As for the night's costars, Zoe Saldana bared her midriff in a ruffled, nude peekaboo confection from Rodarte's Fall '13 collection and Alice Eve slipped into a sleek gold and black sheath from Zuhair Murad. That's the rundown on who wore what; now it's time to cast your vote.
To reveal its eighth annual What Is Sexy? list, Victoria's Secret stocked the Santa Monica scene with some obvious choices — Angels, of course. Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, and Behati Prinsloo were on hand to celebrate this year's list of gorgeous actresses and pop stars, and each girl put her own spin on seductive, beachside dressing.
The 2013 upfront presentations have taken over LA, and they've provided the perfect opportunity for stars to show off their stellar red carpet style. At last night's Fox party, Minka Kelly paired a green printed, one-shoulder dress with black ankle-strap sandals, while Lea Michele looked bright in a pink, floral Lela Rose dress with silver metallic pumps. Zooey Deschanel proved the most covered up in a black circle skirt topped with a black sequined jacket, and her New Girl costar Hannah Simone was ladylike in a black dress with a vibrant garden print. Tell us: which Fox star's look gets the best ratings?
We're calling it a four-way styling tie when it comes to last night's Veuve Clicquot-hosted Tate Americas Foundation Artists Dinner in NYC. Anne Hathaway — bleach-blond pixie cut still intact — went with a leg-baring soft pink Givenchy mini and gold Jimmy Choo sandals; Ciara stunned in a nude long-sleeved gown; Sarah Jessica Parker wore a vintage floral number and loaded up on a very cool mix of jewels (Fred Leighton earrings, a Repossi turquoise ring, and a Fendi cuff and rings); and Alexa Chung opted for a dark two-toned strapless cocktail dress with ankle-strap pumps. Were you more wowed by the dramatic floor-skimming options or drawn to the leggier looks? Weigh in below!
The 2013 Met Gala best-dressed set could easily be likened to the fashion Olympics, and this year's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition turnout made it harder than ever to pick only five gold-medal contenders. Beyoncé Knowles spared no head-turning detail in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture flame-embroidered gown; Gwyneth Paltrow stood out in a covered-up hot pink Valentino number; Rooney Mara played the edgy card in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown, complete with floral embroidery, zippers, ruffles, and a split-front opening; Jennifer Lawrence chose ladylike Dior (and that Jennifer Behr netted veil!); and Katie Holmes stunned in a downright ethereal custom Calvin Klein creation. It's a close one, but it's time for you to declare a best-dressed winner of the night.

No look at The Kentucky Derby is complete without a hat. That was evident from this weekend's festive celebrity looks from Lauren Conrad, Krysten Ritter, and Coco Rocha, who finished their ladylike ensembles with coordinating headwear. Coco Rocha made an entrance in sophisticated skirt suiting — but it was the dramatic orchid-adorned headpiece that really turned heads. Krysten Ritter dressed up her floral-print dress and Bionda Castana heels with a floppy ribbon-trimmed hat, and Lauren Conrad paired a soft nude polka-dot sheath dress with a nude floral-adorned fascinator. That's the rundown on who wore what — now, take in the hat-topped looks below and cast your vote for the Derby's best dressed.
Balmain is known for its rocker-girl appeal, and at last night's dinner hosted by the label's designer, Olivier Rousteing, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Nicole Richie caught our attention (and then some) wearing the brand's subversive pieces. Rosie channeled the '90s in a black and white look comprised of a printed leather check skirt, long-sleeved leather crop top, and sexy laser-cut boots. Meanwhile, Nicole took a slightly softer approach in an intricate summery knit minidress and soft gray suede pumps. Both look hot in their warm-weather party ensembles, but which one gets your best-dressed vote — Rosie or Nicole?
The Whitney Museum's annual Art Party in NYC always attracts the crème de la crème of the fashion world — case in point: this style set from last night's festivities. Olivia Wilde and Lake Bell coordinated in their green printed dresses, though Olivia's Max Mara number was flowy and Lake opted for something more formfitting. Olivia added a chunky gold-and-black House of Lavande Vintage necklace, Iwona Ludyga drop earrings, and Stuart Weitzman black strappy sandals, while Lake carried a simple black clutch and wore black slingback booties. Jourdan Dunn took a different approach entirely, stepping out in a fashion-forward white Alexander Wang dress from the designer's Spring 2013 line and matching white platform pumps. All three ladies went with statement dresses, but which one gets your vote?
