From premiers and after-parties to awards shows and fundraisers, there’s no shortage of red carpet events for the biggest stars in Hollywood. With all those flashing light bulbs and glittering statuettes, is it any wonder celebrities spare no expense to look their best on the carpet and beyond? Take a look at my picks for the stars with the best red carpet styles today:
1. Lupita Nyong’o
Born in Mexico to Kenyan parents, this stunning Yale University graduate and Oscar-winning actress is a study in beauty, grace, and color. Her signature red carpet style includes bold splashes of color. Harness her fresh look by incorporating vibrant hues into your own wardrobe.
2. Jennifer Lawrence
America’s sweetheart, it comes as no big surprise that J-Law is the face of Miss Dior. Always flawless when it comes to the red carpet, not even a notorious trip-up could distract us from her gorgeous look. Jennifer’s street style is awesome as well. She definitely deserves to be among the best dressed celebrities.
3. Nicole Richie
Always a trend-setter, Nicole Richie has really begun to narrow down a personal, eclectic style all her own. Mixing prints, patterns, shine and colors doesn’t always work for everyone, but Nicole manages to keep her look put-together and polished. She can inspire you to wear whatever you want with confidence.
4. Prince William
Heads of state aren’t generally known for their sense of style and sophistication. But Prince William has actually mastered a modern take on traditional styling that any man would be proud to call his own. Extra points to the new dad for avoiding classic “dad-wear” traps like pairing khakis with running shoes.
5. Taylor Swift
In a time when many young stars are running around in teddy bear teddies and tattered wigs, Taylor Swift deserves some recognition for her age-appropriate, polished style. Her signature summer look seems to consist of floral sun dresses, nude heels, red lipstick, and feminine details. It’s a romantic and dreamy look that works perfectly with her flowing blonde locks and willowy figure.
6. Emma Watson
Another young star with style and sophistication to spare, we have yet to see Emma Watson looking anything less than stunning on the red carpet. From flowing dresses to a crisp black Givenchy suit with satin lapels, Emma Watson has proven she can wear just about any style with grace and ease.
7. Bradley Cooper
If anyone dresses like a leading man, it’s heartthrob Bradley Cooper. Nobody wears a three-piece suit, tux, pair of jeans and leather jacket, or double-breasted top coat like the upcoming American Sniper star. It’s astonishing how he rocks his style.
8. Emma Stone

The second Emma to make my list, Emma Stone is known for her cool, polished, elegant red carpet style. It’s not easy to seamlessly blend modern and classic styles, but Emma Stone manages to do just that at every event. It seems she’s passionate about how she looks great in front of the camera.
9. Heidi Klum
With a supermodel background and Project Runway under her belt, it comes as no surprise that Klum makes a fashionable splash every time she appears on the red carpet. Her striking looks and gorgeous figure make her a dream to dress, and the model-come-television host makes the most of her gifts by dressing impeccably.
10. Angelina Jolie
The most philanthropic mom in the biz has a tendency to reflect classic Hollywood style for red carpet events. Black dresses, red heels, oversized sunglasses – the future Mrs. Pitt knows how to work that vintage glamour we all know and love. Angelina Jolie isn’t afraid to switch up her style on the red carpet.
Although it’s hard to choose the best dressed celebrities, these ten stars really deserve to be on this list. They enjoy experimenting with their styles and beauty looks and inspire others to do the same without worrying what others think about your choice. Do you have your own list of the best dressed celebrities? Who does inspire you to dress better?
