The fashion faithful have been rewarded for making it through the heat of the summer, and now they can shimmy into fall’s best silhouettes.
Among the celebrities who are donning the regal look and luxe/femme gowns for the red carpet are Keira Knightley, Emma Stone, Olivia Wilde, Louise Roe, Anne Hathaway, Evan Rachel Wood, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Alexa Chung, always the leader of the younger style pack, looks hip and school-girly, while Kerry Washington and Kirsten Bell opt for body-conscious one-shoulder dresses.
