When there's no dress code on the invite, guests are free to interpret the "party dress" with their own brand of styling. Such was the case at last night's iHeartRadio 20/20 Justin Timberlake album release party, where attendees like Nikki Reed, Jordin Sparks, and Emmy Rossum celebrated JT with their own take on eventwear. Nikki made a case for the classics, keeping it easy in skinny pants and a semisheer button-up, while Jordin worked a cool-girl angle in leather pants, sexy heels, and a moto-style jacket. As for Emmy, she adopted a more ladylike approach, arriving in a sweet floral-embellished Topshop sheath and white heels. For the rest of the party guests, just keep clicking — then be sure to cast your vote for the night's best dressed.
After a long day poolside showing off the latest lineup of Victoria's Secret bikinis, the VS Angels slipped into their cocktail attire to play hostesses for the label's 2013 swim launch party. True to form, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Karlie Kloss brought a trio of looks that didn't short on the sex appeal. Alessandra showed her affinity for sequins and mini hemlines in a sliver-toned sheer and embellished Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti dress, which she finished with pointed-toe pumps. Candice, too, flaunted her famous figure, albeit in a calf-length, bold-printed Peter Pilotto sheath, which she complemented with an understated updo and simple black pumps. And, if you're thinking Karlie's cutout Cushnie et Ochs dress looks familiar, you'd be right; the supermodel stepped out in a very similar Michael Kors style at this year's Grammys — a testament to the fact that you don't mess with a good thing. While this cast of Angels could make just about anything look good, we're asking you to choose just one best dressed. Who gets your vote?
On screen, Revenge's leading ladies may all have adopted the Hamptons-socialite brand of chic, but at last night's Academy of Television Arts & Sciences-hosted evening with the cast, the actresses each showed off their respective offscreen aesthetics in three very different cocktail looks. Christa B. Allen showcased a sweet fit-and-flare, collared confection with a sheer-inset and sequined bodice, which she completed with a pair of right-on-trend metallic pumps. Emily VanCamp veered toward the opposite end of the spectrum, opting for a menswear-inspired riff on suiting in classic black and white, with a pair of equally traditional black heels to finish it off. Meanwhile, Ashley Madekwe took the opportunity to show off something a little more colorful, stepping out in a bright pink minidress with studded detailing and a pair of simple ankle-strap evening sandals. Now, we're turning it over to you — which of the Revenge actresses gets your vote?
Harper's Bazaar drew out a fashion-centric celebrity crowd with last night's celebration of Decades' new Bravo series, Dukes of Melrose, with arrivals including this trio of trendsetters: Cat Deeley, Ashley Madekwe, and Sophia Bush. Cat bared her midriff in a navy-and-red striped crop top and pleated skirt set from Michael Kors Spring '13, but kept the rest simple with understated pumps and just a punched-up red lip. Ashley adhered to a more traditional party-dress dress code in a Three Floor LBD (which you can purchase!) with a flirty flared skirt and a pair of ankle-strap evening sandals to finish it off. Meanwhile, Sophia hit the red carpet in a one-shouldered vintage Halston number that played perfectly into the night's celebration of the famed vintage boutique Decades. Now it's up to you to pick your best-dressed winner from the night's event — which look is your favorite?
Glee's leading ladies glammed up to celebrate creator Ryan Murphy's PaleyFest Icon Award last night. The LA event wasn't just an opportunity for a cast reunion; it also set the stage for something of a style faceoff between Naya Rivera, Lea Michele, and Jayma Mays, who each brought her own brand of cocktail chic to the red carpet. Lea showed her affinity for sexier cuts in a sheer black Vivienne Tam dress with a lacy peekaboo effect, and finished it off with a pair of equally sexy ankle-strap evening sandals. Naya made a polished arrival in a peplum-trimmed navy top, then balanced the flared look with a slim, printed pencil skirt and completed the look with lace-up sandals, a Diane von Furstenberg clutch in hand, and a bright red lip. As for Jayma, she showed off a bright, Spring-feeling style in a formfitting, collared Paper London shirtdress with a bold, colorblocked effect, then tempered the look with a pair of classic nude pumps. Each of the ladies brought a unique play on the "party dress." Now we're asking you to pick your favorite. Which look gets your vote?
The Oscars red carpet was rife with stunning gowns, but thanks to these A-list ladies, we've got some serious best-dressed competition. Kerry Washington chose an embellished coral-hued Miu Miu gown, Naomi Watts shined bright in a silver-sequined Armani Privé number, and Reese Witherspoon went for Old Hollywood glamour in a blue-and-black Louis Vuitton dress. Meanwhile, best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence and Charlize Theron both chose Christian Dior Haute Couture for the night's festivities.

The road to the Oscars is paved with many star-studded Vanity Fair parties, and while Monday night's event supplied the flirty cocktail dresses, yesterday's "Girl Rising" party delivered a cool contrast in light vs. dark styling. Freida Pinto stepped out in a blue, gray, and cream patchwork-infused, mesh-detailed Antonio Berardi dress from the designer's Spring '13 collection, and finished the look off with pewter Roger Vivier ankle-strap sandals. Meanwhile, Chloë Moretz chose a Christian Dior Pre-Fall '13 black fit-and-flare number that offered up a chic take on ladylike dressing — and played to a much darker kind of nighttime glamour. She kept her hair down, wore a smoky eye, and completed it all with nude pointy-toe pumps. Both ladies did right by their evening fare, so now it comes down to who you think did it best. Weigh in below!

The second annual NFL Honors award show turned out a serious three-way (fashion) tie, courtesy of Nina Dobrev's, Olivia Munn's, and Chrissy Teigen's red-carpet appearances. Here's the play-by-play. Nina, who played in DirecTV's celebrity beach bowl earlier in the day, chose a sweet light-blue Zuhair Murad mini and silver sandals for the evening's event. But The Vampire Diaries star's dress was anything but simple: her lacy floral top and geometric-print A-line skirt proved doubly dynamic. Olivia stepped out in a bright — albeit glamorous — coral-hued one-shoulder gown by Izmaylova, complete with a sexy thigh-high split, then finished off the floor-length look with strappy nude Casadei heels. Chrissy worked a strapless teal minidress and sleek gold sandals, but what did we love most about this seemingly minimalist-cool cocktail number? The asymmetrical-cut skirt, which showed off her enviable stems perfectly. Now it's time for you to weigh in: which star's NFL Honors ensemble gets your vote?
Just the night before, Rooney Mara joined sister Kate on the red carpet for the premiere of her new show. Now Kate is returning the favor. The actress stepped out for the NYC premiere of Rooney's new film, Side Effects, and even followed up with a sweet tweet about her sister's performance. Aside from the family bonding, the sisters' arrivals again gave us a side-by-side comparison of their personal styles. They set the stage for a style battle with obvious contrasts. Rooney opted for a creamy white Alexander McQueen confection and Kate stepped out in a flirty LBD. But color palettes aside, there are a few common denominators. Each dress boasts a feminine fit-and-flare shape and a more fashion-forward cut. Kate's is certainly a more understated look, and the true beauty of Rooney's dress is in the gorgeous floral appliqués and embellishments. Rooney is also the first to bring McQueen's Pre-Fall '13 collection to the red carpet. As for the finishing touches, Kate looked to a sleek metallic clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood platform pumps with a little more personality, while Rooney let the gorgeous dress take the focus, also choosing Kirkwood heels, but more pared-down, nude peep-toes. That's the fashion breakdown. Now, study up and cast your vote for the sister who stole the spotlight on last night's red carpet.
