Emma Stone
We're big fans of Emma Stone here at MC. She had quite a year and never seemed to make a fashion misstep. She kicked off her triumphant sartorial parade at the Golden Globes in this divine peach Calvin Klein Collection sheath dress. All hail minimalist chic!

Gwyneth Paltrow
Anyone who knows me knows that I love the color green and I adore Gwyneth Paltrow (and pretty much everything she wears), so this addition to this list is a no-brainer. And the deep-v of this sparkly Elie Saab number ups the sexy factor just enough without becoming tacky. Well done, Gwynnie.

Mila Kunis
To say Mila Kunis killed it at the Oscars is her lavendar Elie Saab would be a massive understatement. It was soft and delicate, yet completely alluring at the same time. And the fit was incredible. It was great the Oscars debut.

Hailee Steinfeld
One of the things I love most about Hailee Steinfeld's style is how perfectly age-appropriate yet utterly chic she always looks. You never feel like you're watching a child dress up in her mom's gowns, even though she's wearing all the top designers. The perfect example was this charming striped Prada dress she wore to the Screen Actor's Guild Awards—youthful but not childlike.

Beyoncé
This read Lanvin dress will forever be remembered as the outfit that gave us our first look at B's baby bump (or as the child has become known on the internets, Babyoncé). And what a perfect dress it was...chic and draped and the loveliest color.

Kirsten Dunst
We love the triumphant return of Kirsten Dunst to the public eye—and not just because we've long loved her quirky style. How utterly perfect is this Chanel Couture dress she chose for this year's big amfAR Gala in Cannes? It's Karl at his most brilliant. And we're so glad she topped it off with a bold lip.

Emma Watson
Watching Emma Watson grow up into the style icon she is today has been a treat. And she did not disappoint during the press tour for the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise. This tulle treasure by Oscar de la Renta was a brilliant choice for the belle of the Hogwarts ball.

Cate Blanchett
There is no other actress in the world that could have pulled off this amazing Givenchy Couture creation the way that Cate Blanchett did at this year's Oscars. In fact, on a lesser star it would surely have ended up on many a worst dressed list.

Elizabeth Olsen
The third Olsen sister burst onto the Hollywood and fashion scene this year with the critically acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene. The style gene is definitely very strong in this family—as evidence, we give you this gorgeous lacey dress from her sister's line The Row that Lizzie wore during Cannes.

Diane Kruger
Diane Kruger looked like an old Hollywood siren at this year's Met Ball. Oh how we loved her Jason Wu dress, with a slit up to there, and that deep side part and red lip. And yes, we're pretty sure Pacey, er, Josh Jackson appreciated it too.
