6. Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara has always been known for her versatility when it comes to expressing her style and fashion-sense. For the closing ceremony at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo looked elegant in a sheer fabric optic white embroidered dress from Christian Dior’s collection. The tassel clutch, stilettos and the aviators added a retro twist to the whole outfit.
7. Evan Rachel Wood
At the Golden Globe Awards, 2017, Evan Rachel Wood decided to skip the typical awards show attire of gowns and instead went ahead with a custom designed suit from Joseph Altuzarra, sporting it with effortless confidence and grace. While a lot of celebrities have opted for pantsuits at red carpet events several times in the past, the Westworld star stole our hearts because of the explanation behind choosing her outfit. She wants girls and women out there to know that dresses aren’t the only way of looking elegant and ‘feminine’. “…I wanted to make sure young girls and women know they aren’t a requirement,” she’d told Ryan Seacrest. A woman is much more than the kind of clothes she wears. We adore her for making this effort to spread a meaningful message and for being such an inspiration to so many.

Elle Fanning was like a breath of fresh air at Cannes Film Festival this year in this flowing, layered off- shoulder gown she wore on the very first day of the festival. The gown is hand-painted by Vivienne Westwood, which, according to her, is a reinterpretation of her Spring 2005 Birds of Paradise dress. The gown is scribbled with all sorts of things, including- a clock, a swirl and a shooting star. Fanning kept the rest of her look simple with a light shade of berry pink on her lips and a ballet bun.
9. Emma Stone
The La La Land star looked stunning at the Baftas 2017 in a glittering Chanel Couture dress paired with matching trousers that reached just down to her ankles. Her look was complete with accessories from Tiffany & Co.; the pearl anklet perfectly adding an elegant touch to this red carpet hit. The trousers also came as a savior from the chilly British weather that Stone had cleverly braced herself for.
Ending this list of ravishing red carpet beauties is none other than RiRi at the Cannes Film Festival 2017 in her bridal inspired pristine white gown from Dior, which she paired with, wait for it, a matching white duster coat draped over her shoulders in the most effortlessly casual way possible. Add to this mix, a pair of sunglasses that she donned the entire time and this was hands-down the coolest red carpet look you’d expect to come across. Rihanna stuns, shocks, and shines brighter than any diamond there is.
This was probably the hardest list we’ve ever had to compile; 2017 has indeed been a very, very good year for the red carpet and for fashion, in general. Choosing only a handful out of the many brilliant looks that graced various Hollywood events throughout the year was a right task. With only two months left for the year to end, here’s hoping 2017 ends with a bang on the red carpet. And we can only patiently wait for what 2018 has to offer us.
