This week’s roundup of best-dressed celebrities proves that personal style is key to achieving an outfit that is perfect for whatever the occasion calls for. Instead of littering our gallery with extravagant gowns from the red carpet, we struck a balance between relaxed and glamorous looks. For that reason, you’ll spy denim ensembles next to gleaming golden gowns, and simple, elegant separates next to eye-catching, embossed frocks. See who wore what in our edit of this week’s best-dressed celebrities, plus shop the look of each amazing outfit.
