Best. Ever.

I recently, read yesterday, was having a texting convo about red carpet fashion. I love the red carpet. LOVE. I seriously think it’s the most fun thing ever. I could stare at pretty dresses all day. I love designer fashion. I would go into fancy Nordstrom and just touch and admire the pretty designer clothes. And those aren’t even red carpet. I would die. LEGIT DIE. diedSo I thought it would be fun to tell you about my favorite red carpet dresses of ALL TIME. That’s right, I love these dresses the most.

vivienne westwood[10] Diane Kruger, Vivienne Westwood, Cannes 2012. Image via Popsugar. My singular sparkly gown. I don’t do sparkle, but the sequins + structure are magic. MAGIC, I tell you.

zuhair[9] Kristen Stewart, Zuhair Murad, Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere 2012. Image via ElleUK. Haters gonna hate, but I think this look is ALL class. The sheer thing was just starting up, so it was fresh and unexpected. The structure paired with the lace and the vintage romantic hair and makeup is just perfecto.

calvin[8] Emma Stone, Calvin Klein, Golden Globes 2011. Image via PopSugar. Stop. Just stop. The mono chrome everything could be bleh, but holy hot damn this is just fire. A brilliant, simple look executed brilliantly.

vintage valentino[7] Jennifer Garner, Vintage Valentino, Oscars 2004. Image via Instyle. My girl!!!!!! This dress was her perfect welcome to the world!! It was so unexpected and absolutely stunning. Red carpet glamour without being predictable. claire

[6] Claire Danes, Calvin Klein, Oscars 1997. Image via Glamour. The stuff 13 year old Lauren’s dreams were made of. So chic, so simple. She could wear this today, update the jewels, and it would still be perfect.

ralph[5] Lupita Nyong, Ralph Lauren, Golden Globes 2014. Image via Instill. I die. I die. I’m dead. There’s nothing to say, other than this is going to go down as one of the best dresses ever. Everything. On Point.

ellie saab[4] Diane Kruger, Jason Wu, SAG Awards 2010. Image via Elle. She’s baaaack. Diane is my red carpet spirit animal and this dress is just what hollywood glamour is all about. It’s vintage, it’s modern, flowy and structured. It’s just the perfect mix of all good fashion in one gown. The jewels and lip color are just [insert praise hands emoji here].

valentino[3] Kate Hudson, Valentino, Golden Globes 2003. Image via Instyle. Boho at it’s finest. This is when I fell in love with Kate Hudson! I had this picture pinned up on my mood board, yes seriously. NERD. I can’t even.

vera[2] Michelle Willams, Vera Wang, Oscars 2006. Image via Refinery 29. Are we seeing a trend with the yellow!? So funny, right!? This dress literally took my breath away. Stunning! The fit was so magic. I also remember watching Heath Ledger repeatedly help lay her boob ruffles flat when the wind would blow. Tear.

nicole dior[1] Nicole Kidman, Dior, Oscars 1997. Image via Instyle. Here it is in all it’s glory. Best dress ever. This Dress is literally what started my love of fashion. Right here. This is was did it. It’s hard to find photos of, but the back was this amazing mesh with more embroidery. The Fur lined trim. The color!! I’ve been obsessed with chartreuse for 2 decades now thanks to this gown. The BEST EVER.

So that’s it folks. I’d love to know what you think!! What are your favorite gowns of all time?!!?

    This post makes me so happy. I love getting inside your head and hearing what you think about these dresses. Also, you totally have a thing for yellow and orange – almost every single one of these are shades of those colors! Love love love it all, but mostly love YOU :)
