Welcome to "Who Won Fashion Today," where we award the boldest, best-dressed person of the day. Winning fashion doesn't necessarily mean you're wearing the most expensive, trendiest, or prettiest dress. Rather, we reward risk-takers—those that stay true to their personal style and make us go, "Now THAT is a LEWK.”

One of the most memorable pieces of fashion I ever touched was a blue tulle dress from Chanel’s Fall 2014 Couture show. It was a piece of art. The dress could literally stand up on it’s own and needed a specially made trunk to carry it from place to place. It was a magical, loofa-like creation, one that could only come from the mad mind of a genius like Karl Lagerfeld. Never, I thought to myself, could a dress like this be dreamed up again.

Fast forward five years to Laura Dern’s red carpet appearance in London. Dern, who plays purple-haired Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo in the new Star Wars, arrived on the carpet in a tamer, yet still wildly exciting, take on the Chanel gown I loved so many years ago. The piece, brainchild of Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, was strapless, pale pink, and feathery (rather than loofa-y). The dress, from the McQueen Resort 2018 collection, was paired with Christian Louboutin boots (red soles and pink dress ... CHIC!) and Ara Vartanian jewelry.
