It’s Oktoberfest in Germany and some of the sexiest–and bustiest!–stars got into the spirit over the weekend, suiting up in the traditional dirndl dress. Showing a public display of affection for Bavarian style, a bright-eyed Katy Perry donned a polka-dot dirndl for an appearance on the German variety show Wetten, dass…? in Munich on Saturday. Kim Kardashian also took her Bavarian beer girl role quite seriously, appropriately accessorizing her custom-made dirndl with pigtails and a pitcher of brew. She even took to her Twitter account to boast, “I love Germany! It’s Vonderful here!” But these A-listers weren’t the first to embrace the look. Two years ago, Salma Hayek donned the low-cut Bavarian dress, and almost exposed a little too much of her enviable assets, nearly missing a serious wardrobe malfunction during a performance on the German variety show. And while each brunette bombshell looked authentic in her dirndl, we can’t decide who wore her traditional dress best. Tell us: Who had the best Oktoberfest dress? Vote below! –Jessie Goldberg
