Frocking It: The Best Dressed Ladies of 2015

Here are the red carpet looks that captured this SEEN Queen’s fancy this year
82

I go out A LOT. While getting the party scoop, there are some ensembles that stop me in my tracks on the red carpet and then kinda stay with me. Here’s my official list of who this SEEN Queen thought crushed it this year on the party circuit and the outfits that are going to be tough to top in 2016.

 

1. Nicole Kidman

The Nina Ricci dress that Kidman wore to accept Women in Film’s Crystal Award for Excellence in Film was my favorite of the year. The sequin gown was like a hologram up close—it changed colors as she moved. Did you go see Yayoi Kusama’s Light Exhibit at The Broad? That’s what this dress looked like: an infinite array of colored lights.

 

2. Rihanna

Rihanna had a number one hit on this same list last year (I adored a rose gown she wore to her inaugural Diamond Ball). I know a lot of folks made fun of this big, hot pink meringue number she wore to this year’s Grammys (Giambattista Valli Haute Couture), but she rocked the princess-style cake topper look. She looked beautiful and was having fun.

 

3. Chloë Sevigny

A snap I took of Sevigny in this yellow lace Gucci gown at LACMA’s Art + Film gala was shared more than any other thing I tweeted this year. Gucci dresses a lot of ladies at this event (the brand is its big-time sponsor) but I couldn’t take my eyes off Sevigny and her embroidered flowers, strawberries, birds, and tigers (Gucci, Resort 2016).

 

4. Lupita Nyong’o

Nyong’o always looks stunning, but at this year’s Oscars she stole the show in a pearl-encrusted Calvin Klein dress designed by Francisco Costa. She wore it like it was as light as air (it wasn’t). The dress also caused a sensation after the show when it was stolen from the actress’s hotel room and later returned.

 

5. Emma Stone

While Woody Allen’s film Irrational Man was entirely forgettable, the prim Giambattista Valli dress that star Emma Stone wore to its L.A. premiere was not. Stone often wears black and white and this little number also featured whisps of yellow. She paired it with a blue Salvatore Ferragamo bag.
