Browse through a selection of some of the finest moments on the red carpet with fashion looks right off the runway!

 

Beyoncé Knowles in Roberto Cavalli 

The sultry Beyoncé Knowles took to the stage at Jay Z’s pre-Super Bowl concert during the DirecTV ‘Super Saturday Night’ at Pier 40 in New York City, in a gorgeous and irresistibly alluring see-through black Roberto Cavalli dress from the designer’s latest Spring 2014 collection. Heavily embellished, the stunning couture creation dazzled the audience as it shimmered and sparkled, lighting up the stage and setting off the singer’s brand new blonde locks. To complete her glamorous look, the sexy songstress donned a pair of Christian Louboutin peep-toe stacked heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

 

Madonna in Ralph Lauren 

A trendsetting star for several decades, pop queen Madonna strutted around the stage at the 2014 Grammy Awards in an eye-catching, off-white tuxedo by Ralph Lauren. Another unique ensemble from the season’s offerings, the three-piece tuxedo set was styled up with a floral-embroidered tie, a white corset, suspenders and a Western-style hat. Quite a contrasting choice of attire from the usually provocative and very daring stage outfits that we have come to expect from the pop icon over the years, it perfectly suited the occasion and what turned out to be an emotional performance by her.

 

Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace 

Tall, slender and graceful, Uma Thurman possesses a dignified and almost ethereal kind of beauty. For her appearance at the 2014 BAFTAs held in The Royal Opera House in London, Thurman chose a navy-blue Atelier Versace silk gown that captivated onlookers. Beautiful in its simplicity, the gown did all the right things; it allowed her beauty to radiate without overpowering it, and flattered her sensual silhouette, accentuating every curve. Thurman paired up her simple dress with a diamond choker, simple up-do and light makeup, creating a look of perfect and effortless glamour.

 

Mélanie Laurent in Elie Saab 

Soft, feminine and oh so lovely, French actress Mélanie Laurent was a vision of utter beauty at the ‘Aloft’ premiere, that was held during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival at the Berlinale Palast in Berlin, Germany. Laurent looked gorgeous in a rosy, beaded Elie Saab Spring 2014 design that subtly sparkled, making everyone fall in love with the beautifully girly and romantic look entrance that she made.

 

Sandra Bullock in Stella McCartney 

Sandra Bullock worked the red carpet at the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, looking absolutely fabulous in a Stella McCartney dress. The actress radiated with confidence in the strapless dress that featured a metallic bodice and lace skirt. Bullock accessorized her flirty look with a Roger Vivier clutch and Brian Atwood strappy sandals.

 

Olga Kurylenko in Burberry 

Sexy Bond girl Olga Kurylenko made quite the dazzling appearance at the 2014 BAFTAs, showing up in a Burberry gown with a V-shaped, plunging bodice in the form of a bandeau top. The stunning actress looked every bit the magical mermaid in her bronze and copper skirt that shimmered and caught the light. Kurylenko kept her look simple with understated makeup and gorgeously natural wavy hair, leaving her breathtakingly fresh-faced.

 

Lea Seydoux in Prada 

Like a fairytale queen, actress Lea Seydoux graced the red carpet at the La Belle et la Bête premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany. The utterly decadent couture creation from Prada that Seydoux donned for the occasion was a superb balance of drama and romanticism; it was elegant, opulent and majestic. The actress perfected the look with an upswept do, and lusciously wine-painted lips.

 

Diane Kruger in Elie Saab 

Looking every inch an angel herself, Diane Kruger chose a beautifully minimalist white gown by Elie Saab for her appearance at The Better Angels premiere during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival held in Berlin, Germany. The simple, long-sleeved gown featured a crew-neck, sheer skirt and leather belt with a golden clasp. Her red lips and free-flowing hair definitely make a statement against the stark whiteness of her dress.

 

Taylor Swift in Alberta Ferretti  

Taylor Swift chose a demi-couture dress by Alberta Ferretti for her performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards. With generous layered ruffles on the skirt, the top is embellished in the form of a diamanté bodice, and sparkly bejeweled strings decorate the shoulders. Swift exuded an ethereal aura as she played the piano with stage lights permeating the diaphanous fabric. Soft pink lips and shimmering makeup combined with Cathy Waterman platinum-and-diamond lace-edged earrings topped off her look to perfection.

 

Cate Blanchett in Alexander McQueen

A vision of pure elegance, Cate Blanchett simply glided through the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted at The Royal Opera House in London, in a head-turning look that was met with much approval. The award-winning actress was stunning in a sleek, black Alexander McQueen gown and a silver Chopard necklace intricately shaped like a cluster of branches and birds. Her feminine hairdo and fresh makeup accentuated the opulently dramatic style of her look.
