Celebrities have a key role to play when it comes to making or breaking the success of the latest runway trends. Which designer they choose to wear, what kind of outfits they pick; these factors determine the trends and styles that will be in vogue for the current season. For many of us, the award season also means that time of the year when we get to see our favorite stars dressed in their finest, introducing us laymen to the best of styles and providing us with some heavy dose of fashion inspiration as well. The Red Carpet event at an award show is the place to be at if you’re looking for the best in high-street fashion. This is where actors flaunt their style statements and gush to the interviewers about how beautiful their outfits are. The Red Carpet is Hollywood’s very own fashion runway and this is where our beloved stars shine the brightest. In today’s post, we will have a look at the best red carpet looks 2017.
But pulling off a Red Carpet look is not as easy and effortless as it looks. One simply doesn’t pick the shiniest and most expensive gown and put it on for their Red Carpet look. No, it takes hours, or probably days to carefully pick a dress that suits your body type, a color that looks good on you, accessories that can help elevate the outfit, the perfect pair of shoes to strut in, and a hairstyle that is sure to make heads turn as you gracefully walk past that soft, shimmering red carpet. Often, these red carpet looks can make or break a celebrity’s fashion scores for the entire year and land them on a list of the worst red carpet looks. Luckily for our celebs, we’re not here for fashion policing them and making a list of some of the rather insipid and downright horrid looks that have graced the red carpet of many prestigious Hollywood events in the past year. Instead, here is a list of the best red carpet looks of 2017 that is meant to be appreciated and fawned over.
Best red carpet looks 2017
1. Felicity Jones
Felicity Jones looks nothing short of a Disney Princess who has somehow landed in this realm in this pale tea-length dress with just the right hint of sparkle by Christian Dior Couture that she wore at the Oscars 2017. Her golden shoes and that perfect shade of coral lipstick make her look like she’s just waiting for her fairy godmother to assemble her a carriage out of mice and pumpkins, and off she’ll go to the royal ball!
2. Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae has always been known for her elegant yet bold red carpet looks and she didn’t disappoint us at her first ever Oscar appearance in 2017. Monae’s was possibly the most dramatic look at the Oscars this year. Her Elie Saab Couture fairy-tale gown, with the bejeweled diamond neck-piece and the regal headband in colored stones were a perfect reflection of the badass queen that she truly is.
Zendaya’s look at the 2017 Met Gala was jaw-dropping, to say the least. She looked like she’d escaped right out of a Lewis Carol novel in this whimsical Dolce and Gabbana off-shoulder gown. She looked like a tropical goddess in her parrot printed gown with the massive flowers. However, the show-stopper of this outfit was, not the dress, but her glorious mane. Amidst a sea of futuristic fashion, Zendaya’s head full of curls grabbed eyeballs and was possibly everyone’s favorite look from the Met Gala this year. What makes this outfit even more stunning is her tangerine lipstick and the gold brush shadow across her lash-line.
4. Uma Thurman
At 47, actress Uma Thurman continues to be a sensation in this sizzling pink gown with a plunging neckline and her racy slashed leg from Atelier Versace Fall 2016 Couture at the Cannes Film Festival Opening Gala on the Palais de Festivals red carpet. The statement neck-piece added a touch of retro Hollywood to her outfit.

5. Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne wowed everyone at her Met Gala appearance this year sporting a futuristic alien chic aesthetic in Chanel Couture and a pair of Christian Louboutins. Having shaved her head a week before the event for her upcoming film, Cara decided to flaunt her naked scalp and was a hit at Hollywood’s most coveted fashion event. Her make-up artist, Romy Soleimani, channeled Cara’s youthfulness with minimal makeup, making her look like more of an inter-galactic goddess than a tin man from a poorly directed science fiction film.
