In our increasingly image-driven era, ruling the red carpet is not as simple as it used to be. The stakes have never been higher for stars to make an indelible impression on television, on social media, and in the pages of a magazine. In our inaugural roundup of Hollywood's 50 Best Dressed inside the November issue, on newsstands and available for digital download now, we celebrate the women (and a few of their male accessories) who prove that fashion, when used wisely, can be a compelling weapon in making an unforgettable impact on today's red carpet.
View our Top 10, and make your own best-dressed list to share on social media using the hashtag #InStyleBestDressed. Relive our first-ever InStyle Awards, honoring the stars and creative artists highlighted in our November feature, curated by Fashion News Director Eric Wilson. Honorees include Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoe Kravitz, and makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, who accepted their awards from their equally fabulous (and famous) friends. Read full party recaps from the evening, plus see exclusive photos and videos from inside the event. Then, inside our January issue, on newsstands December 11, we'll provide you with all the details on how you can relive every moment thanks to InStyle Virtual, a new, immersive, 3D experience InStyle is pioneering with Jaunt VR.
"This has been a critical year for women in Hollywood and an important moment to stand up for equality in all aspects of their industry," Wilson says of Hollywood's 50 Best Dressed. "We have been mindful that the red carpet is more than a playground for fashion. It is also a battlefield. While we do salute the surface in our best dressed list, we also celebrate the substance."
And we're waiting to hear your battle cry. Start making your best dressed list now.
