Best Dressed, in Chainmail: Allison Williams

They may not look like much on the show, but boy, can the girls of Girls clean up. Allison Williams led the pack in a gold Altuzarra bustier and black skirt, Fred Leighton drop earrings, and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Best Dressed, Fastest Dress Turnaround: Emma Stone

It’s hard to find Emma Stone not wearing Lanvin. And this was no exception. At the Palm Springs Film Festival on Saturday, the actress wore a red, pre-fall 2013 Lanvin dress, which debuted just hours before in New York.

Best Dressed, Prim and Proper: Jessica Chastain

Look at everyone’s goofy smiles as they stare at Jessica Chastain at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards in New York on Jan. 7. But she did look good: the Best Actress nominee wore a black Oscar de la Renta 2013 pre-fall dress and Christian Louboutin heels.

Best Dressed, Even With the Bow: Kerry Washington

Best Dressed, Highest Slit of the Week: Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum must love strange, asymmetrical dresses with lots of holes. But this one was more of a success than attempts past: it was a Julien Macdonald design, which she paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin shoes and clutch.

Best Dressed Couple of the Week: John Krasinski and Emily Blunt

Best Dressed, Lowest ‘V’ of the Week: Taylor Swift

By now Taylor Swift seems to have reduced her red-carpet appearances down to a formula: always long, always shades of white or cream—sometimes but not always with sparkles—and very little else. At the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday in Los Angeles, Swift wore a plunging white Ralph Lauren Collection dress.

Hands in pockets is never a good way to stand. But Dunham looked great in a black Valentino jumpsuit with a white detail.

Best Dressed, as Usual: Helen Mirren
