    90. Tilda Swinton in Lanvin


    WHERE 80th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles
    WHY WE LOVE IT "It's deliberately asymmetrical. It’s deliberately unbalanced. The black velvet draped around her ghostlike skin gave the look a haunting, gothic sexiness."

    91. Cate Blanchett in Balenciaga


    WHEREThe Curious Case of Benjamin Button premiere in Sydney, Austrailia
    WHY WE LOVE IT "It’s the uniqueness of the fabric that’s so stunning because it’s doing sparkle in a completely modern way. The technology of this dress is extraordinary."

    92. Keira Knightley in Rodarte


    WHERE 65th Annual Golden Globes in Los Angeles
    WHY WE LOVE IT "The innocence of this dress coupled with Keira’s hair and makeup made her look incredibly virginal. She looked like a girl going to her first party."

    93. Amy Adams in Proenza Schouler


    WHERE 80th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles
    WHY WE LOVE IT "It's so sculpted and you can see the construction of the dress when it fully fans out. The color plays against the milky quality of Amy’s skin."

    94. Linda Evangelista in Lanvin


    WHERE Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France

    95. Kyra Sedgwick in L'Wren Scott


    WHERE 60th Annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles

    96. Keira Knightley in Vera Wang


    WHERE 81st Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles
    WHY WE LOVE IT "It’s intricately draped and gathered then splashes out with just enough train. In this dress, a woman shows up on the red carpet a new-comer and walks away a star."

    97. Freida Pinto in Christian Lacroix


    WHERE 66th Annual Golden Globes in Los Angeles

    99. Kate Moss in Marc Jacobs


    WHERE Costume Institute Gala in New York City

    100. Emma Watson in Burberry Prorsum


    WHERE London Fashion Week
    WHY WE LOVE IT "You don’t want to overdress or dress beyond your years on the red carpet. I love that this dress is so kicky and young!"

  • 101. Camilla Belle in Alexander McQueen


    WHERE Push premiere in Los Angeles
