When did gowns become de facto red carpet fare? Since the beginning, when Old Hollywood starlets like Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner would arrive at film premieres dressed to thrill in a fabulous game of sartorial one-up(wo)manship, obviously. But the modern red carpet tells a different story – one of individuality and personal creative expression. Sure, the traditional gown is still on the menu, but so are tailored suits and sequined minidresses. See how stars did both this week and vote for your favorite in the poll, below.

Dress by Burberry
