Best Dressed, the Most Groomed: Taylor Swift

Sure, Taylor Swift always looks a little bit like an American Girl doll. And yes, she almost always wears Elie Saab. But sometimes—well, to be fair, most of the time, she pulls it off.

Best Dress, Because It’s Hard to Pull Off Mesh: Kate Bosworth

Not only is it hard to look good in frontal mesh, it’s doubly difficult to wear it with really shiny satin that clings to all the wrong places. Unless you’re Kate Bosworth! On whom every possible thing looks phenomenal—especially this white Pucci cocktail dress which, for the record, had a frontal slit and a peplum, too.

Best Dressed, the Gold Standard: Jourdan Dunn

Since Burberry’s Spring collection was filled with candy wrapper-bright metallics, it makes sense that the enthusiastic fashion crowd would break out several months early and pretend they were made for the holidays. Take, for example, the model Jourdan Dunn, who glowed in a gold number from the collection.

Best Dressed, For Looking Tan in New York in November: Emily Blunt

Usually people get pale and pasty around the holidays. But not Emily Blunt. At the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards, a blonde (and tan) Blunt presented the award for “Breakthrough Actor” in a white Calvin Klein strapless dress, Jimmy Choo sandals, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Best Dressed, Even If It Looks a Little Summer-in-the-Hamptons: Hilary Rhoda

White eyelet isn’t ideal for November—in fact it’s a little bit insane. But Rhoda still looked great in this Rebecca Minkoff blue-and-white dress and clutch at the Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York, and showed that it didn't really matter.

Worst Dressed, Finding Nemo Edition: Kimbra

Here's a person named Kimbra! And this is what she wore when she won the Best Female artist award at the ARIA Awards in Sydney on Thursday. And that's all we have to say about that.

Worst Dressed, Business at the Beach: Kim Kardashian

KK means business. So much so that she wore a one-piece pleated black pantsuit on a "furniture shopping" trip at City Furniture in Miami on Monday.
