My Best Dressed
1. Alicia Vikander wearing custom Louis Vuitton. I found this the most memorable gown from this years event. The buttercup yellow was so refreshing, in a sea of black, white and metallic dresses. I also loved the length of the gown, cut just above the ankle and with just enough volume to make a statement without being difficult to wear.
2. Margot Robbie wearing Tom Ford. This look was head to toe Hollywood glamour. Oozing in sophistication this look was flawless. And can we just take a moment to appreciate just how photogenic Margot is. Stunning!
3. Jennifer Lawrence wearing Dior - I loved than Jen opted to wear a gown with texture, as we did not see much of this on the red carpet. Whilst I still prefer Jen's 2013 Oscar dress, this gown had a beautiful lace bodice and a low cut neckline that added a hint of sex appeal without being too daring.

Other Thoughts
* Cate Blanchett wearing Armani - I adore Cate's red carpet style. She always wears bold statement looks, and whilst I do love this dramatic gown I was not sold on the soft icy blue colour.
 * Brie Larson wearing Gucci - This was my favourite use of colour that we saw. The soft ruffles and embellished belt were beautiful.
* Naomi Watts wearing Armani - Like Cate Blanchett, Naomi is a huge fan of Armani. This dress was stunning and perfect for this event, however I feel like I've seen Naomi wear this style of dress so many times before.
* Diane Kruger wearing Reem Acra - Worn to attend the Vanity Fair after party, this  gown was straight of the runway at NYFW. The embellishment was exquisite, and the sheer fabric showed just enough flesh to grab attention but without being too risquĂ©.
* Kate Bosworth wearing Ralph & Russo - The soft powdery lilac colour was perfect for Kate's complexion and the detail on the neckline was enough to mean that styling could be kept simple.
* Rooney Mara wearing Givenchy - A beautiful gown, but as was the case with Naomi Watts I feel Rooney has worn this style so many times it no longer looks new.

Who was your best dressed?
