From body hugging black dresses to gorgeous gowns with a hint of sparkle, check out all the timeless styles we spotted on the red carpet and, in turn, who wore them.

Leslie Mann looked sophisticated and sexy (as always) in a beautiful black lace peplum gown by Dolce & Gabbana. She accessorized her dress with a black and gold Bottega Veneta clutch and Neil Lane jewelry, of course. A subtle pop of color on her lips added the finishing touch.

Amber Heard was certainly a force to be reckoned with on the red carpet last night. She blew us away in a gorgeous Grecian-inspired, navy blue Atelier Versace gown that hugged her curves in all the right places. Thanks to the big hair and that huge slit up the front of her dress though, her classic look was given a bit of a modern twist.
