The gowns are embroidered and extravagant, the suits are crisp and tailored – and the red carpet is about extremes again. In this week’s installment of Best-Dressed Celebrities, we couldn’t decide which side had the edge, so help determine the winning look by voicing your vote in the poll, below.
Suit by Berluti
We’ve seen a lot of suits on the red carpet in the past year, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen a female celebrity wearing a suit that was actually designed by a menswear brand. Hats off to Zendaya for bending the gender rules in a whole new way.
Dress by Zara
For the annual Icons party, Emily Ratajkowski chose a simple but curve-hugging dress by a surprising brand: Zara. Couldn’t say we saw that one coming.
Gown by Maison Yeya
At the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Hustlers, Jennifer Lopez repped the Middle East in a major way. Not only was her gown designed by Maison Yeya, an Egyptian brand headquartered in d3, but she also sported earrings by Abu Dhabi brand Amwaj and diamond rings by Lebanese label Yvan Tufenkjian.
Gown by Giambattista Valli
Brie Larson has become one of our favorite red carpet contenders since she landed the role of Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). This extravagant gown by Giambattista Valli is a departure from her normal red carpet looks, but it flatters her with its unpredictable proportions.
Gown by Ralph & Russo
Nicole Kidman chose a rather modest Ralph & Russo look that was etched with delicate embroidery details, which put most of the focus of the look on her practically ageless face.
Suit by Victoria Beckham
Is it cheating the system when you wear your own clothes everywhere? We think it’s a certain way to guarantee that you’ll look good, every time. Victoria Beckham has hacked the red carpet system by always choosing a perfectly tailored look from her own collection. Clever girl.
