MTV Style Best Of 2010: Red Carpet Stunners

It’s no secret that we’re suckers for red carpet fashions—we just love seeing our favorite celebs get glammed up for a big night out (OK, confession…we secretly envision ourselves walking the red carpet in their ensembles). This year we saw hundreds of gorgeous red carpet looks, but a few of them were especially stunning, like Blake Lively’s red hot Chanel outfit and the floor-length gold gown Heather Morris rocked at the Emmy Awards in August. Here they are, plus eight other red carpet winners from the past year.

ANNA KENDRICK: Twilight star Anna Kendrick opted for a violet Alberta Ferretti gown for the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January. The floor-length dress had a bustier top and feathery skirt. Anna added simplistic glamour to the garment by sweeping her hair back into an elegant up ’do.

BLAKE LIVELY: Blake Lively wore Chanel (one of her favorite designers) to the premiere of The Town at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The actress, who just landed a campaign with the famed French fashion house, chose a sparkly red shift with funky feather details. She stuck to the script with matching pumps and lipstick.

CAMILLA BELLE: Actress-turned-model Camilla Belle wowed us at the Cannes Film Festival in a decadent navy dress from the Gucci Premiere capsule collection. The floor-length frock had a thigh-high slit and a pretty embellished chest strap. To top it off Camilla went for old Hollywood glamour with bright red lipstick and a chic swept back ’do.

EMMA STONE: Pre-blonde makeover, Emma Stone looked elegant in a strapless black dress at the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Aside from the pockets, we especially liked the way the shift’s slit opened to reveal funky, strappy sandals. The whole look popped, thanks to Emma’s green earrings and red lipstick.

FERGIE: They say that red is a “power” color, and Fergie certainly looked powerful—and sexy—in her one-shoulder Zac Posen dress at the 2010 Glamour Women of the Year Awards. The singer chose matching red pumps to finish the hear-me-roar look.

HEATHER MORRIS: Glee star Heather Morris sported a floor-length gown by Ina Soltani for the Emmy Awards in August. The dramatic column dress was one of our favorite looks of the awards show, and we loved how Heather kept her accessories simple with just a bracelet by Kwiat.

JESSICA ALBA: For the Los Angeles screening of Machete, Jessica Alba wore a black and gold sparkly Balmain dress with a fun zig-zag pattern. She paired the dazzling mini with Anndra Neen jewelry and bold, stiletto sandals.

KERI HILSON Beige was one of this year’s hottest colors, and Keri Hilson rocked it beautifully at the Grammy Awards in January, wearing a strapless Dolce & Gabbana mermaid gown that had a sparkly crystal waist band.

LEA MICHELE: The strapless Oscar de la Renta gown that Lea Michele picked for August’s Emmy Awards, had a sweetheart neckline and lots of pretty ruffle details all along the voluminous skirt. And check out that bling around her neck!!

ROBERT PATTINSON: Our favorite leading ladies weren’t the only ones to grab our attention on the red carpet this year. Heartthrob Robert Pattinson rocked a maroon Gucci suit for the premiere of Twilight Saga: Eclipse on June 24 in Los Angeles. It suited (pun intended) the actor perfectly, and the thin gray tie added a sexy finish.
