The straps of Margot’s beaded Chanel Haute Couture gown might have come apart a little bit during the ceremony, but that doesn’t make us appreciate this dress for its flattering silhouette and simple, yet eye-catching embellishments.

Sandra illuminated the red carpet in a sequined Louis Vuitton dress. Sure, she looked a bit like a Ferrero Rocher wrapper, but that doesn’t make the overall effect any less dazzling.
