Bling reigned supreme in this shimmering Nicholas Jebran shirtdress and Roberto Cavalli platforms. Clearly the style star wasn't afraid of a little shimmer and the bold cut to match was definitely a great choice.

Although it was Zendaya's faux locs that made headlines when she hit the Oscars red carpet this year, we'd like to direct the attention back to this gorgeous satin Vivienne Westwood gown. The young star exuded beauty, grace and class in this dreamy number.

It's hard to go wrong with black and white, but to slay it in this manner? That's no easy task either. The ruffles are perfect! And they're left to make their statement without being drowned out by the super svelte skirt and simple pumps.
