Jennifer Aniston in Versace
Jennifer Aniston is known for her love of the little black dress – so we were thrilled when she stepped out on the red carpet in a champagne-coloured frock. We especially love how she paired the glittery dress with easy hair and makeup.
Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein
Leave it to Lupita to top the best dressed list for the second year in a row. The starlet’s custom Calvin Klein gown was composed of a whopping 6,000 pearls.
Rosamund Pike in Givenchy

The Oscars is hands down the biggest night of awards season – especially when it comes to red carpet fashion. Over the years, we’ve seen Hollywood’s biggest stars show off outfits that will go down in history – some because they’re simply gorgeous, and some because they’re the complete opposite.
Last week we asked Yahoo Canada readers to vote for the best and worst Oscars red carpet looks of all-time.
And the award for best dress goes to…Halle Berry!
A whopping 36 per cent of voters thought that Halle Berry was the belle of the 2002 Oscars ball in her sheer embroidered dress by Elie Saab. The actress’s classy-yet-risque dress stood out amongst a sea of larger-than-life ballgowns, and helped put designer Elie Saab on the map.
The runner up for best dressed was Julia Roberts, whose 2001 Valentino gown won over 26 per cent of voters. Nicole Kidman’s red
The Grammys are the one night in music where anything goes, at least when it comes to fashion – and stars took full advantage of that while walking the red carpet on Sunday night. From Rihanna’s massive Giambattista Valli gown to Madonna’s “Fifty Shades of Grey”-inspired getup, there was no shortage of eye-catching outfits.
On Sunday, we asked Yahoo Canada readers to cast their vote and weigh in on which star ruled the red carpet.
And the winner is…Taylor Swift!
Thirty per cent of voters thought the “Shake It Off” singer deserved the best-dressed title for her ethereal blue dress designed by Elie Saab.
Personally, we always love to see what Gwen Stefani wears on the red carpet and we were not disappointed by the custom Atelier Versace pantsuit she wore to the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. It seems like Yahoo Canada readers agreed with us – 19 per cent of voters thought that the 45-year-old singer earned top honours.

The Grammys are the one award show a year when anything goes when it comes to red carpet style – and the 57th Annual awards show didn’t disappoint. From Madonna’s dominatrix-esque getup to Rihanna’s larger-than-life Giambattista Valli ballgown to Pharrell’s chameleon short suit, there was no shortage of interesting fashion on this year’s red carpet.
While some celebrities knocked it out of the park, others missed the mark in a major way. We’ve made our decisions regarding who ruled the red carpet, but we want to know what you think.

Can this woman do no wrong? (The answer is clearly no). Blue Ivy’s mom, who picked up the Grammy for Best R&B Performance, walked the red carpet in a curve-hugging black gown designed by Proenza Schouler.

Whether it’s candy-coloured eyeshadow (and hair!) or a bold, ’50s bombshell red lip, the 30-year-old singer manages to pull off pretty much any look.

"I love this look, because it has the right hints of colour in all the right places," says Chu.
To recreate this look, first define the eyes with a black gel eyeliner keeping the liner close to the lash line. Finish the eyes with two coats of a lengthing and volumizing mascara.Read More »from How to recreate Katy Perry's best beauty looks

Pregnancy must really be agreeing with the Duchess of Cambridge.
The 33-year-old royal graced the cover of the latest issue of Australia’s Woman’s Day looking just a little too radiant.
The magazine used a photo of Kate from last week’s appearance at the Kensington Leisure Centre in London. When compared side by side, the Woman’s Day photo seems to be quite different: the Duchess’s lipstick is brighter, teeth whiter, cheeks pinker, eyes bluer – and her earrings are the sparkliest thing we’ve ever seen.
While we assume the cover was digitally altered to make Prince George’s mom look brighter and more radiant, the enhancements end up making her look too severe and older than she actually is.Read More »from Kate Middleton gets the Photoshop treatment on magazine cover
This isn’t the first time Princess Kate has been the victim of Photoshop. In 2011, Grazia infamously slimmed down the Duchess’s already-thin figure for a royal wedding-themed cover, claiming that it was an “inadvertent result” of removing Prince William so Kate could be featured alone. Less than a

Twenty nine per cent of voters thought that the 35-year-old actress deserved the best-dressed title for her curve-hugging Versace gown.
Not far behind was Amy Adams, who won over 22 per cent of voters in her icy blue dress, which was also designed by Versace.

We all know that the Duchess of Cambridge has a stunning collection of coats in basically every colour of the rainbow. Her outerwear game is always on point – sometimes so much that we don’t even notice (or care about) what she’s wearing underneath. Invest in a gorgeous coat that you feel good in (whether it’s a bold colour, intricate pattern or classic black or grey), and toss it on to give any outfit an added dose of class and glamour. Psst: you don’t have to break the bank to find a pretty statement coat. Lots of brands like Zara, Topshop and H&M have on-point offerings for under $100.

Christine H. McConnell dug into the archives to achieve this stunning project in which she recreated several family photos dating back nearly 200 years.Los Angeles-based artist
It all started about two years ago when an old driver’s license belonging to McConnell’s mom tumbled out of a drawer.
“I found myself looking at it upside down,” the 33-year-old artist tells Yahoo Canada. “Seeing it flipped kind of gave me a new perspective on her appearance, and I realized we had a nearly identical bone structure."Read More »from Artist recreates vintage family photos in stunning project
“A year later my Mother gave me a red dress she had held onto for 25 years. When I tried it on and saw that it fit, the idea occurred to me,” she continues. “My objective was to see just how similar we looked if I replicated as much as I could. The result surprised me so much, it inspired me to look further into past generations to see how much gets passed down.”
So, McConnell set out to recreate five vintage portraits of women in her family (plus one of herself and an adorable one
