10 Best Red-Carpet Gowns
This year, metals were hot, fabrics were extravagant, and these women were regal and breathtaking. Beginning with Penelope Cruz, whose effervescence was intoxicating in a flowing gown of champagne chiffon and swirls from Atelier Versace, at the Oscars.
It was the simplicity of her hair, makeup and jewelry that let her rich eggplant-colored dress by Nina Ricci steal the show at the Oscars. The gown-with its train and cascading ruffles-fit her form beautifully, with nary a sign of overt showiness.
The sweeping train on this Christian Dior gown suggests a '40s screen siren, while the sharp angles of the beaded top adds a modern touch. The combination was flawless on the actress at the Cinema Against AIDS benefit in Cannes.
Three reasons this Elie Saab dress scintillated: the Grecian pleats; the framing of the decollete; and the luxurious shade of gold. The fourth reason: it's on Halle Berry.
Neither Jennifer Lopez or Donatella Versace are known for conservative fashion. So when the star and the designer come together (here at the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Awards), they achieve off-the-charts sex appeal.
The blossoming transformation of Ms. Holmes hit a high note at a premiere in L.A. in this gorgeous one-shoulder Monique Lhuillier. The simplicity of the cut, color and fabric by no means meant it was anything less than radiant.
Diaz was nothing short of statuesque in Alexander McQueen while promoting Shrek the Third in Tokyo-looking as if gold was poured over her lithe figure.
She owned this night, and not just because of her first Emmy win. Her white denim Zac Posen dress fit exactly how a pair of jeans should, molding to every curve perfectly.
What a decidedly feminine dress Alexander McQueen created for Blanchett to wear to the Golden Globes with the lace, the clavicle-revealing neckline and the bejeweled belt. But don't discount his flare for something unexpected, in this case, it was the addition of pockets.
The rich sapphire color, the sensual satin, the off-the-shoulder allure: this Carlos Miele gown stood out for its radiant elegance at the Emmys.
