Top Looks From 2011 Comic-Con, Including Carey Mulligan, Nikki Reed, And More!

Besides a horde of pubescent boys wielding lightsabers (and our own, non-lightsaber wielding senior editor) descending upon San Diego for Comic-Con, the city also played host to basically everyone who has ever mattered ever. (Not really. Jared Leto wasn't there. But a whole heap of our fashion faves were.) Though the Con is more for dressing WAY up as Batman or letting your casual flag fly, a couple of our leading ladies took the time to demonstrate that being a geek doesn't mean you aren't chic well-dressed in killer heels. Check out our best-dressed list for Comic-Con below—and if, like us, you are craving a Kristen Stewart fix with shaky hands and pasty skin, we cover her totally cool (and affordable!) Comic-Con outfit here.

CAREY MULLIGAN IN ROKSANDA ILINCIC

Edgy Carey Mulligan opted for a cutout Roksanda Ilincic resort look for her Drive panel at SDCC, thumbing her nose at the girls wearing "jeans" and "sensible shoes." And we appreciate a girl who wears her best avant-garde belly-baring frock to a nerd-fest. The aqua-colored shoes keep things light, but we've got to ask: Would it hurt Carey to flash her infectious smile every now and again?

NIKKI REED IN D&G AND BRIAN ATWOOD

Nikki Reed is the coolest girl in high school. The jocks want to date her, the theater geeks write plays for her, even the goths think she's all that. And in her retro-printed floral dress, strappy leather sandals and complementary dark pedi, she'll definitely get a date to the dance. We hope she'll French braid her hair!

NINA DOBREV IN ZUHAIR MURAD AND BRIAN ATWOOD

The bits of opaque fabric stretched across Nina Dobrev's totally toned torso is, at first, kind of risqué. But the Vampire Diaries hottie has just the right amount of skin in her Zuhair Murad wrap dress, and it's all peeking through lace, which is dramatic without being overpowering. Also, how good does her hair probably smell? We'd guess it was scented with ambrosia and angel wings.

ANNA PAQUIN IN ANTONIO BERARDI AND GUCCI

Whoa. Anna Paquin aka Sookie Stackhouse: DANG, GURL. When you wear those floaty Southern florals in True Blood, we forget that you are a four-alarm fire who can wear an Antonio Berardi structured body-con dress like you've been doing it for a (vampire/fairy/shape-shifter/et. al.'s) eternity. Those Gucci heels make it cutout footwear meets angular shoulders and we have officially forgotten our names.
