Sometimes the best dressed race is a close one — the top two or three “most loved looks” are all so good, we can’t choose our favorite. And sometimes, the second-place finisher is so clearly a winner that we can’t believe the upset. And then there are weeks when the top look is so obvious that we’d be shocked if it didn’t take the No. 1 spot by a lot. This is one of those weeks.
Nicola Peltz has some tight jeans to fill as the latest beauty in the Transformers franchises, following in the footsteps of Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the latest installment, Transformers: Age of Extinction. And since both of those ladies were no strangers to major red carpet moments, Peltz has some major heels to fill on her press tour, as well. Luckily, she seems to be handling the pressure beautifully — kicking off the film’s worldwide red carpet tour with a three-day, four outfit whirlwind in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Warning: If you’re not a fan of pastels or florals (or any other summer-related trend), you may want to stop reading. This week the top 10 most loved looks featured all warm-weather staples: flowy fabrics, lace, crop tops, plunging necklines and strappy shoes. But among the skin-baring beauties, one Grecian-inspired gown got enough votes for Karlie Kloss to nab the Best Dressed title.
You know her best as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren, a decidedly unglamorous inmate of Litchfield Penitentiary in the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black. But outside of the prison walls, the actress behind that very memorable character, Uzo Aduba, cleans up beautifully.
To nab a Critics Choice Award Thursday for guest performer in a comedy, the actress looked gorgeous in a shimmering golden vintage dress and House of Lavande jewels — and she and her celebrity glam squad, hairstylist Jamika Wilson and makeup artist Jessica Smalls, let us inside her getting-ready moments before she hit the red carpet. (And yes, Aduba loves getting all dressed up for events like this: “It reminds me of getting ready for prom, Every. Single. Time. And I just feel pretty!” she tells PEOPLE. “I don’t wear a jumpsuit in my personal everyday life, so to step out and wear something elegant is always fun. I’m a girl who loves fashion so it feels like a dream.”)

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw tons of smudged-out flowers, delicate midriffs and a neckline we didn’t expect to see back again until fall.
