Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain, Blake Lively, Michelle Williams, Alicia Keys
We're back with the first-ever StyleBistro Awards! Coming atcha for our second poll of the day (this morning's category was Best New Body Products) is an exciting one we're sure you're going to love—the Best Celebrity Style on the Red Carpet.
Check out our top-10 picks below, and don't forget to weigh in with your opinion at the end. Be sure to come back on August 21st when we announce the reader's choice winners for every category!
Blake Lively: From Karl Lagerfeld to Stella McCartney, it's no wonder every designer wants to play dress up with the Chanel-turned-Gucci girl—Blake's Barbie-like features turn everything she wears to gold. Case in point, that mesmerizing Zuhair Murad mermaid gown, center.
Diane Kruger: Not many can outshine Dior couture, but somehow the blonde beauty managed to wear her out-to-there ballgown without it wearing her. And, well, what can we say, she stole the (Dior)show—just like she does with every other red-carpet event.
Rooney Mara: Sultry and seductive, Rooney brings that certain dark romance and all-around bad-assery from her roles (ahem, Lisbeth Salander) right to the red floor. Geometric cutouts, barely-there lace, and dramatic trains are the hallmarks of her style.
Emma Stone: Emma's award-winning looks in two words—simply perfection. Our favorite Spider-Lady chooses pieces that, while still understated, exude over-the-top glamour. We still can't tear our eyes away from her fuchsia Giambattista Valli bow gown at the 2012 Academy Awards.
Michelle Williams: While most celebs will often opt out of the ROY G BIV spectrum and choose the relative safety of blacks and whites, Michelle isn't afraid to go there. The princess of the pixie cut loves feminine silhouettes in punchy shades like daring corals, tinkle-me pinks and rich scarlets.
Alicia Keys: If curves could kill, we'd be in trouble. Alicia's sexy-meets-sassy red carpet style always shows off her remarkable figure. Pointy-toe shoes strike all the right notes (like those Christian Louboutin pumps on the right), and we love that she's willing to trade in a frock for sleek slacks.
Kate Middleton: The embodiment of modern elegance, the Duchess stays true to her regal title with every event appearance. The one accessory that really makes us jealous—well, besides that super-chic matching teal clutch—um, Prince William, of course!
Jessica Chastain: The gorgeous redhead complements her creamy complexion by opting for tonal hues. Rest assured her look is never neutral, though. To make up for the simplicity, her dresses get the glamour treatment—think sparkles, sequins, and beads galore!
Angelina Jolie: So the question here is who deserves the best-dressed award more—Angie or her leg? We're kidding. Well, only kind of. The daring side-slit on her Atelier Versace number at the 2012 Academy Awards did, after all, start an entire red carpet movement: Angelegging.
Zoe Saldana: Chic and playful—as seen at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards—or sheer and brilliant—at CFDA Fashion Awards, for instance—whatever the sensibility may be, Zoe makes it look easy.
