Our favorite leading ladies upped the ante for red carpet style this week with structured gowns, embellished midis and bold lips. We personally love a darker lip—a la Rooney—for winter, especially when worn to offset a pale ensemble.
Read on for our picks for best looks of the week:
Olivia Wilde attended the Los Angeles premiere of her new film Her in a figure-hugging David Koma dress, Jimmy Choo heels and Jacob & Co. jewelry. The mom-to-be proudly posed for many a side-photo to show off her burgeoning bump.
Meanwhile, Rooney Mara wowed at the Oxfam Charity Gala in Dubai, donning a custom white Lanvin gown, Brian Atwood heels and Carrie Hoffman jewelry. The actress added drama to her look with a deep red lip—which, in our opinion, perfectly complements her fair complexion.
Sheryl Crow stunned in a pink Juan Carlos Obando confection at the 2013 American Country Awards, held Dec. 10 in Las Vegas. The country crooner finished her look with a beaded bag and gold jewelry.
In a look that harks to another era, Blake Lively stepped out in a lacy Marchesa midi, Gucci peep-toe heels and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry at the unveiling of Van Cleef & Arpels' redesigned 5th Avenue flagship store in New York City. Loose pinned waves and a sultry red lip completed Lively's Old Hollywood get-up.
Finally, Diane Kruger sealed her place on our best dressed rundown with a sexy beaded Valentino gown featuring a sheer skirt at the European Film Awards in Berlin. The actress paired her look with a black Coach clutch and strappy sandals.
