Best Dressed of the Week: All Reese Witherspoon Needs Is an LBD to Take Out the Competition

Feb/15/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Reese Witherspoon best dressedTheo Wargo/Getty readers really can’t resist a good LBD. Proof: This week’s best dressed star. Reese Witherspoon trumped two celebs in floor-skimming gowns for the title, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.

Don’t get us wrong: The actress looks amazing in the long-sleeve Valentino design (worn to the Great American Songbook event in N.Y.C.) featuring an on-trend scalloped neckline. Our favorite part of the look is her textured waves and sexy smoky eye, but in general we felt it was a safe move for the star who earned close to 23,000 “Love It Votes” (a 90 percent approval rating!) to beat out the competition.

Trailing Witherspoon’s stylish footsteps, Elizabeth Hurley nabbed the No. 2 spot in a slinky dove-gray halter with interlocking rings at the neckline at the London Royal Portrait Gallery event. She completed her glam look with a white fur coat and earned an 81 percent “Love It” rating from readers. And rounding out the top 3 was our personal favorite this week, Diane Kruger, who stunned in a white Elie Saab gown with a sheer skirt at the Better Angels premiere in Berlin.

We want to know: Did Reese deserve the top spot? Or were you hoping for a more formal look like Diane’s white gown? Share your thoughts below!

Did Diane Kruger Have a Wardrobe Malfunction?

Quick: Name a time Diane Kruger has looked anything less than flawless on the red carpet. It’s hard to do, right?

Which is why PEOPLE StyleWatch editors were left feeling confused and adrift when, while selecting photos for Last Night’s Look, they spotted what appeared to be Diane Kruger’s silicone “chicken cutlets” peeking out of her off-the-shoulder red satin dress. Could our most reliable red carpet style star have suffered such a major wardrobe malfunction? What did this mean for our fantasy fashionista draft?

That’s when we decided we had to go to the tape — referencing the dress itself against the original one that hit the Jonathan Saunders runway in the spring. And we were relieved (we think) to see that she was wearing it as it was presented on the runway, exposed, nude-hued bustier construction and all.

Did you have the same double-take we did? And what do you think of the “chicken cutlet” look — is it sexy or silly?

There are weeks where we are totally surprised by your choice for Best Dressed Star. Maybe the dress was a little out there, or perhaps there’s someone else who was just so good that we can’t believe they didn’t win. This is not one of those weeks.

Diane Kruger absolutely deserved her runaway “Best Dressed” victory in this exquisite Valentino Couture gown, worn to the designer’s Venice ball. Her blush pink, embroidered and beaded dress had shades of Grace Kelly (as does the willowly blonde herself!).

But true to fashionista form, Kruger updated the classic look with loose locks and a fuchsia clutch — and took full advantage of its sheer pockets — to make the elegant work of art look as easy to wear as a pair of jeans.

So tell us: Do you think Kruger deserved this week’s top spot? If not, are you nuts? We mean, if not, who did?

Our style crush on Diane Kruger is no joke — and it’s no secret either. There aren’t many people who could make us want to try formal jerseys, overalls and whatever you’d call this, but somehow she manages to make even the trickiest trends look effortlessly cool.

So when she talks beauty and fashion, we get out our spiral notebooks and pens and take notice. DuJour magazine‘s August cover star got personal about her feelings on those subjects — and the mag nabbed some gorgeous behind-the-scenes shots from her Chanel skincare ads to accompany the interview.

Diane Kruger striped shirt

Saturday night: Diane Kruger manages to take boyfriend jeans to a date-night-appropriate level. How? With a killer pair of heels, chic striped top and red cross-body bag. And since guys are always gushing about how they love a girl in jeans, take a cue from the actress and give the LBD a rest for a more laid-back look.

Nab a pair of Diane’s exact Blank NYC jeans for $88, or check out the Express jean sale (we’re loving this ankle-rolled pair). Complete the look with a striped top like this one from Forever 21 (only $12.80!) and embellished heels like this Jeffrey Campbell pair on sale for $49.95.
