Olivia Wilde

It looks like she’s wearing a galaxy.  I love the big poofy skirt on it.  In a sea of beige and tan, this dress definitely stood out.

Anne Hathaway

I was kind of split on this dress at first, but ultimately, the texture of it and the sleeves won me over.  Long sleeves were a trend on the red carpet this year, and Anne worked them well.  The color suits her well, too.

Angelina Jolie

Usually Angie wears shapeless sack dresses in boring colors like black or beige.  I like that she switched it up this year in a lively green, and like Anne, she made a good choice with the long sleeves.

Julia Stiles

Not a dress I saw on many lists – best dressed or otherwise – but I really loved Julia’s get-up.  It’s got a great shape, and she picked a perfect year to wear black (usually it’d be overdone, but this time around it was actually a stand-out).  It’s delightfully simple with just a smidge of texture.

Alex Pettyfer

I love a guy in a well-tailored suit, and British up-and-comer Alex really nailed it this time.  I hate seeing guys in baggy suit pants and jackets that swallow them up.  I also love the casual simplicity of the one button jacket.

Hailee Steinfeld

It’s tough when kids have to dress up for the red carpet.  They have to look elegant but not like they’re playing dress-up, they can’t be childish but they can’t be dressed too provocatively either.  True Grit star Hailee did a great job of ticking all those boxes.  I love the texture on her gown and even the color – it actually doesn’t look like a wedding dress!  Miley Cyrus could learn a thing or two.

Jayma Mays

It’s not so much that I ABSOLUTELY ADORE this dress or anything.  It’s a nice dress – slinky but classy, textured and layered.  But I really love the whole look.  With the beading on the dress and the shape, and her hairstyle and make-up, Jayma looks like she stepped out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.  This is the look January Jones was going for, but didn’t obtain.

Dianna Agron

Dianna was one of the many who wore a light, almost nude color on the red carpet, but she was one of the few who pulled it off.  The color complements her hair color and skin tone.  Her hair and make-up look great.  It’s just a nice ensemble.

Kyra Sedgwick

I’m shocked to be typing this, but I was very fond of the color of this gown.  It stood out like a beacon on the red carpet.  The ruffly, casual quality of the garment gave it an air of the bohemian.  Very nice.

Zachary Levi

Zachary made this outfit stand out with the vest.  Not many guys can rock a three-piece suit, but he pulls it off well.  Men would do well to learn that layers are always a good thing.

Mandy Moore

I just realized how much this dress actually reminds me of my prom dress.  I swear that’s not why I like it, though – I hated prom.  The color is great and looks good with her hair, the skirt is light and ethereal.  A great look, in general.

Leighton Meester

Rarely can someone rock a patterned gown, but the fabric of Leighton’s dress is so lightly patterned, it’s barely noticeable.  Instead, it gives it a stand-out quality.  Again, I’m loving the long sleeves.  I wouldn’t mind seeing more of that at the Oscars.

Robert Pattinson

R-Pattz scored so many points in my book with this ensemble.  His hair looks washed!  His suit fits wonderfully!  AND IT’S NAVY BLUE, BUT NOT OBNOXIOUSLY SO!  Good job, vampire boy.

Mila Kunis

Unlike Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mila rocks the green without looking like a Christmas tree.  It’s simple, but the texture adds a nice dimension to it, and the green is just gorgeous.  I’m also almost always a fan of the one-shoulder strap, asymmetrical look.

Colin Firth

Colin Firth is often one of the classiest male dressers on the red carpet, even more so since he paired up with Tom Ford.  The jeweled buttons on the shirt, the sleek lapels, and the pocket square all make this tux a unique one.  He accessorized too, as well.

Best Dressed

Amanda Seyfried

Amanda’s ethereal gown luckily avoided the “wedding gown” trope that happens when starts choose white for the red carpet.  An uber-simple gown, the most complex aspect of this ensemble is the understated texture of the material it’s made with.

Cameron Diaz

Cameron had a pretty, easy look going on last night.  Her golden gown fit in well, as gold was one of the “trendy” colors of the evening.  With the flowy hair and red lipstick, her whole looked harkened back to old Hollywood.  Usually sparkly embellishments on gowns are something I have an aversion to, but it works well here.
