    Keira Knightley, Atonement

    Easily the best dress on film in the aughts, this floor-sweeping, slinky '40s evening gown by designer Jacqueline Durran had audiences green with envy. As Cecilia, Keira Knightley wore this tantalizing emerald backless number with spaghetti straps, a wide gathered waistband, high front-slit and perforated neckline in the super-sexy scene against the bookshelf with James McAvoy. A jewel of a gown, it's enough to make us renew our library cards.
