best-dressed at 84th Academy Awards

Ellie Kemper looked amazing in this rust sequin strapless. This dress accentuates her curves and complimented her gorgeous locks making her our pick for boldest-dressed!


Lara Spencer simply shone in this one shoulder gown. From the texture to the cut — which truly accentuated her statuesque physique — the look was flawless.

Louise Roe took our breath away with the unique white satin gown. Delightfully ladylike, we love the metallic details.

 

Maria Menounos looked stunning in the green side cut out gown. Showing off her natural curves while managing to keep the look elegant, we have to give her a nod as the evening’s sexiest-dressed celeb. Meow!

Michelle Williams is almost always a red carpet beauty stand out with her striking and flawless porcelain skin, but this Louis Vuitton number sent her straight to the top for our best dressed list. Chic yet adorable!

Milla Jovovich dazzled in this jaw dropping Elie Saab one shoulder gown.

 

Missi Pyle looked incredible in this eco-friendly turquoise design. She proved going green doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish!


Berenice Bejo wore a low cut, long sleeved mint green Elie Saab creation.  The gown, paired with her red locks, was a study in elegance that was not lost in translation.

Gwenyth Paltrow is almost always a fashion ‘do’ and  last night she proved why with this gorgeous Tom Ford gown. We give Gwenyth our vote for most chic.

Stacie Keibler looked incredible last night — and it wasn’t just George Clooney on her arm!  She rocked this amazing gold lamé Marchesa gown, causing neck sprains up and down the red carpet, making her tarte’s favorite head turner of the night.

best-dressed at the 54th Grammy Awards

Looks like we have Lady Gaga to thank for inspiring celebs to dress like it’s Halloween on the red carpet. The 2012 Grammy’s were filled with some outlandish attire, but we were still able to narrow it down the 10 best dressed.

Carrie Underwood was glowing in this intricate, open-back gown.  With her swept-back blonde hair and stunning blue eyes, she outshone everyone on the red carpet.

Adele Stayed true to her classic style by rocking the retro cat eye with a gorgeous vintage style Armani gown. She arrived at the red carpet already a winner!

Hilary Scott wore this gorgeously draped gown that really flattered her figure. Her long sleek locks pulled this entire look together. Oh yeah, and her makeup? All tarte.

Julianne Hough chose this exotic black strapless gown and kept her hair and makeup simple, balancing out her entire look.

Kelly Osborne, infamous for her daring dress choices,looked chic and elegant in this one shoulder Grecian-influenced  gown. And her soft purple locks looked beautiful — Katy Perry, take notes!

Kelly Rowland knows she has an amazing figure, and in this gown so does everyone else! She chose a dress that really complimented her shape, but still looked lovely and elegant.

I usually don’t choose Paris Hilton as a best dressed candidate, but she really looked gorgeous last night. She shockingly chose a tasteful and sophisticated gown. Well done, Ms. Hilton!

Rihanna collaborated with Armani to design this  risqué little number. She definitely could have done something else with her hair, but the dress was perfect.

Jane Seymour kept it simple in this fitted, gold gown. She looks amazing, while still dressing for her age and maintaining her sexy appeal.

  Honorable Mention

Katy Perry always knows how to stand out and make a statement. Despite her blue hair her blue gown and makeup were done up to perfection.
