This year Hathaway favored quirky feminine looks (courtesy of super-stylist Rachel Zoe) like her frilly Oscar de la Renta cocktail dress (left) and rose-red Marchesa gown (right). "If you're going to be glamorous, it has to be tempered with eccentricity so that it incorporates your own personality," the actress told In Style. "Dressing up is great, but you need a twist."

"I love to mix things up," Bilson has said of her signature style. "I love using basics as a canvas, combining them with vintage pieces or piling on accessories."

When she's not wearing her own line, this year the Hills fashionista selected body-conscious pieces from brands like D&G (left). And the ever-stylish star didn't slack when it came to casual-she sported separates like a brilliant red skirt (right) from pal Whitney Port's line, Whitney Eve.

This year Mendes was uniformly stunning on the red carpet, even though her style can range from edgy Calvin Klein Collection (left) to ultra-ladylike Bill Blass (right). As the actress told In Style, "I dress for my mood, and since I don't have just one mood, I don't have just one style."

Diaz legged it on the red carpet this year in minidresses from Zac Posen (left) and Missoni (right). But even when off-duty, the actress displayed her own brand of laidback chic. "I don't like overdone or being too put-together," Diaz told In Style. "I like casual chic. Eclectic style. I want to feel like I can go anywhere, whatever I'm wearing."
