As she twirled around the red carpet and gave 360 views of the skirt, it was clear the dress boasted a surprising amount of colors ranging from fiery warm tones of red and yellow, then transitioning into cool blues and greens and even greys and blacks.


8. Lupita Nyong’o – Star Wars Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o definitely proved herself to be a fashionista to watch this year after multiple swoon-worthy red carpet moments, but her latest appearance at the Star Wars premiere was arguably her best of the year!

3. Blake Lively – Met Gala

The Met Gala is known for extravagant fashion moments, which means often celebrities go over the top with their fashion creations. Blake Lively, however, definitely styled her Met Gala look to perfection this year! At the top, it would seem her look was channeling her old school Serena van der Woodsen days with the low cut neckline and golden textures, but the cobalt blue feathered hemline of the gown definitely spices up the look and adds something extra for the glitzy evening! She wore her makeup luminously and glowy and sleeked her hair in a high ponytail to show off her coordinating cobalt and gold earrings.
