Tina Fey

Old Hollywood Glamour works on Fey and she knows how to work it to her advantage. Strapless, calf length, body hugging silhouettes take her from bookish nerd to va va voom!

Helen Mirren

Staying ahead of the trends and wearing what will be hot this spring, Mirren also looks characteristically classy: The sleeves and intricate detailing on the front of the Badgley Mischka  dress make it grown up and elegant.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Here’s a great example of someone getting better with age. She shows off her best asset—her beautiful olive skin—in a strapless Vera Wang. Although princess can tend to look a little girly, Louis-Dreyfus made it seem more royal than costume.

Julianne Moore

She is lucky that she has pal Tom Ford on her speed dial because he whipped her up the chicest study in black and white. Moore made the graphic stunner even more interesting by adding retro gold Bulgari jewels. Now that’s a Game Change!

Sally Field

As an “actor’s actor,” she chose to get noticed by her presence rather than a frilly dress. Field’s Navy Alberta Ferretti gown floated down the red carpet. And the open neckline added an age-appropriate sex appeal.

Connie Britton

Britton’s Kaufman Franco sequin strapless column hit all the right marks, highlighting her gorgeous figure, while its color complimented her red-golden mane. She looked modern and comfortable.

Carey Lowell

Accompanying her nominated husband, Richard Gere, Lowell was award-worthy herself, showing how to do Red Right. Her understated Armani gown ooozed sexiness.

Julia Roberts

Always a style icon, Roberts closed the show in a black Valentino jumpsuit. It was modern, unusual—and just might start an awards show trend.

Nicole Kidman

On the red carpet, Kidman said that playing Grace Kelly in a forthcoming biopic resparked her love of fashion. And it showed! Her Alexander McQueen gown put her back on the fashion map.

Hayek’s Gucci dress hugged her curves in a way that made everything proportionate. She knows how to minimize her bust and has perfected the hourglass.
