Lupita Nyong’o

We cannot look past Lupita Nyong’o in this stunning pale blue gown by Prada. The plunging neckline and pleated gown might have been too much for most stars to pull off, but Nyong’o looks effortlessly stylish and tops our best-dressed list.

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence's Academy Award fall

JLaw has had yet another Oscar fall, but at least this time it wasn’t while making her way up to the podium to accept an award. This time she was a little more discreet, but we still caught her in the act.

These stars shimmered, they sparkled and they wowed with their iridescent gowns. We especially loved Jennifer Garner’s modern take on the flapper dress.
