Tilda Swinton- Always one to elegantly play on the masculine/feminine divide, Swinton cut an ultra-chic swath in a slick icey blue Haider Ackerman gown that boasted an age-appropriate dinner jacket (above).
Angelina Jolie- After over a decade in the spotlight, Jolie continually proves that she has a confident handle on red carpet dressing and her ivory Versace gown looked refreshingly modern thanks to its unexpected angular red neckline that gorgeously framed her face for a look that was untouchably timeless.
Rooney Mara- In less than a year Mara has mastered an identifiably cool take on special event dressing whether she’s making a television appearance or popping up at movie premieres and her latest coup in minimal Nina Ricci was another hands-down winner with its updated take on a classic shape.
Natalie Portman- In shocking pink Lanvin the actress wore one of the only dresses one could consider harkening back to “Old Hollywood Glamour” and looked all the more regal for it.
Julianne Moore- Moore’s black tiered Chanel gown might have had a retro shape, but her casual side-swept hair and no-fuss jewelry kept her look fresh and modern while highlighting her gorgeous complexion and toned body. -Naveed Hussain
