The Fifi Awards, a.k.a. the Oscars of the fragrance world, are a pretty big deal. The 40th annual round of the ceremony took place in New York last night with a smattering of celebrities in attendance. Out of these, Nicole Richie nailed it the most, as usual. Here’s how much we love her personal style — we normally can’t stand mullet dresses. They give us hives. But this Emilio Pucci black semi-sheer number, along with her retro up-do, has made converts out of us. Nicole looks hot, and she knows it!
Next up, there’s Jessica Stam. In theory, we know it’s hard to make a supermodel look bad, but we’ve seen too many disasters to know that’s not actually true. But Jessica in this lovely, knee-length, cap-sleeved dress is demure and and as far away from a disaster as can possibly be. We love the hint of silver beading and draping across the neckline. Rounding up the trio of best-dressed ladies was Michelle Monaghan, who went the minimal route, as opposed to Jessica’s elegance and Nicole’s retro drama. She poured herself in to a sexy, simple, navy-blue gown with cut-outs. The makeup was kept to a bare minimum, her hair was pulled back and she had a touch of gold on through her accessories. Three different looks, three definite wins.

This is going to be a long list, folks, so get some popcorn ready. There was so much material to choose from, from this year’s Met Gala that we drove ourselves into a tizzy. We weren’t ever fans of, say, peplum (gowns with an overskirt), but Solange Knowles‘ sunshine-yellow Rachel Roy number made us fans. Keeping up the bright trend was Katharine McPhee whose low-cut, unforgiving tangerine Elie Saab column was stunning. Emma Roberts wore a brighter shade of orange, and also incorporated peplum in her gorgeous Escada strapless gown. Moving toward red territory was a surprise entry: Chelsea Clinton. She wowed us in a cherry, lace-overlay strapless gown, and she totally needs to reveal who the designer is.
Other fab outfits were worn by Ashley Greene who picked a dreamy, Grecian Donna Karan gown and Amy Adams, who also wore white Giambattista Valli, with a cheeky gold bow detail at the waist. It was completely old Hollywood glamour. Another one of our red carpet favorites choosing that vibe was Amber Heard, a knockout in a dusty rose Zac Posen fishtail. The Glee gals represented and chose completely different looks. Dianna Agron went for elegant, romantic glamour in an emerald green Carolina Herrera gown. while Lea Michele picked a sexy, slashed navy blue Diane von Furtsenberg dress.
Our picks for best-dressed also include supermodel Jessica Stam wearing a pastel blue, almost gladiator-esque John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture dress number with gold detailing, and Hilary Swank in a burgundy, halter-necked Michael Kors gown. There are a total of 16 looks to choose from in our gallery below, so check them all out, and tell us whose gown you like best.
