This Week's Best Dressed Star: A Love Letter to Taylor Swift

Some weeks we happen to get a little more invested than usual in the race for Best Dressed, and this was one of those weeks. Ever since we laid eyes on Taylor Swift’s dazzling Houghton mini, worn to pick up her Songwriter/Artist of the Year award in Nashville, we were straight up obsessed. And, apparently, so were you, because she held a commanding 5,000-vote lead at press time, easily beating out the rest of the pack.

This look was a surprising departure from her typical style — between the accessories (those Jimmy Choos!), the pink pout and the flawless smokey eye (seriously, can we hire her makeup artist for a night?), Taylor went full-on bombshell. Maybe next time she wants to get revenge on an ex by writing an angry song about him , she should just send him this photo instead.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot: Other stars were on the red carpet this week! Sandra Bullock had a strong showing in second place, thanks to the black lace mini she wore to the London premiere of Gravity. And Freida Pinto proved work-appropriate clothes can also be Best Dressed-worthy: Her ladylike cream blouse and brocade skirt, selected to celebrate the International Day of the Girl, landed her in third.

This Week's Best Dressed: It's as Clear as Black and White

This week’s race for Best Dressed was a neck-and-neck black-and-white faceoff (we told you the color combo is really big right now), with the top three falling within a 500-vote difference at press time.

Reigning supreme was Jennifer Hudson, who proved you don’t have to wear a single pop of color to stand out on the red carpet. Her white Yigal Azrouel dress, accessorized with black pumps at the Power of Women event, was the very definition of figure-flaunting, and her fresh take on the peplum is likely what set her apart from the rest of the competition. And okay, we lied. She sported just the right hit of color via her wine-colored pout.

Giving Jennifer a run for her money was Charlize Theron, who also brought her LWD out for a spin at the Power of Women event (hers was a draped Stella McCartney mini with what we’re dubbing the “cutout turtleneck”). And Sandra Bullock rounded out the top three in a black strapless Antonio Berardi dress with white side panels at the USC Shoah Foundation Institute gala. And if you think that look is worthy of Best Dressed, you should see her other black-and-white number at the London premiere of Gravity (it’s our personal favorite of her press tour so far!).

So clearly black-and-white is back in a major way — and getting some serious love from readers. Did you like Jennifer’s take on the trend, or do you prefer Charlize or Sandra’s style? Or are you dying for some pops of color to make their way back to the red carpet?

Tired of checking out the most loved look of the week then feeling disappointed that you’ll never be able to get your hands on what the celeb’s wearing? You’re in luck because the winner of the best dressed title this week is wearing a getup we can all afford: top-to-bottom Ann Taylor.

Kate Hudson beat out the feather-embellished dresses, dramatic gowns, trendy pantsuits and designer duds in Last Night’s Look to earn a notable over-90% approval rating, higher than any recent ensemble.

Should Sandra Bullock Cut Her Hair For Real?

Nope, not even that backless Marc Jacobs gown can distract us from Sandra Bullock’s short hair on the October cover of Vogue.

The 49-year-old actress nabbed the prestigious spot for the fifth time, sporting a super-short side-swept crop with a few longer curls at the back. (And we’re still recovering from the bold look.) But don’t shed a tear for her glossy long hair just yet.

Bullock has been busy hitting the red carpet to promote her new film Gravity, wearing the same long style we’re used to seeing her in (with a few honey-colored highlights mixed in). So unless her hair grew back in month, our money’s on a wig. Plus, she has a similar short style in the new sci-fi drama — check it out in the trailer below: Read More

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw vibrant red hues reigning in the color department and lots of see-through, lace-embellished dresses. Plus, one ’90s look that was so over the top it eclipsed Ciara’s throwback ensemble from last week.

Sorry, Miranda! Sandra Bullock is This Week's Best Dressed Star

Man, don’t you just feel so bad for Miranda Kerr? OK, neither do we (have you seen the woman lately? Also, have you seen her husband lately?), but we imagine she might be feeling a touch disappointed right now. Because it appeared that Kerr was going to take home the honor of Most Loved Look of the Week, but just before the polls closed, Sandra Bullock pulled ahead and snatched the title right out of those supermodel hands.

And we’ve gotta say: We think Bullock deserved the win. She looked all kinds of gorgeous in her red Roland Mouret sheath, which featured an unexpected black back. She wore the dress with nothing but basic black heels and a casual down-do to Comic-Con in San Diego, where she was promoting her upcoming movie, Gravity.

It earned her nearly 26,000 votes and an approval rating of 91%, just a smidge higher than Kerr, whose floral mini and pink accessories got the thumbs up from 90% of you.


Don’t pity Kerr too much, though; she may not have gotten that top spot, but she did appear on the 10 Most Loved Looks of the Week List twice. (Her other dress was a one-shoulder Roland Mouret design, worn with white pumps.)


Congrats, Sandy. And better luck next time, Kerr.

In our weekly round-up of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we noticed that stars were going back to basics (with two-tone looks and super-simple hair) — and those who tried something funkier (like a jumpsuit) didn’t quite get it right.
