Anne Hathaway's white dress really works on the long, lean actress. "Her porcelain skin with the red lips and dark tousled hair gives her an easy-going, goddess look," says Inaba.

"First of all, Neil Patrick Harris is built like a fashion model and can wear anything," says Gunn. "I love the satin trim and lapel. It gives it a sense that it's the 21st century, and not just a retro look being brought forward."

gg-winslet1

Kate Winslet is all about subtlety, according to Kressley, who finds the actress' black column dress well-fitted, flattering to her figure and perfectly accessorized. "A perfect example of someone wearing a dress and not the dress wearing her!" says Kressley.

sag-wood1

Evan Rachel Wood's blue, one-shoulder gown really sets her apart. Zarian calls the floor-sweeping frock "old Hollywood glamour at its finest."

sag-duchovny1

Inaba loves the clean lines of David Duchovny's well-cut suit and slim, modern tie. "He's got style without trying too hard," says Inaba.

gg-longoria1

"Eva Longoria Parker embraces the drama in this dress, which looks powerful, sexy, rich in red and, and at the same time, dramatic and tasteful with its classic fishtail silhouette," says Kressley. "This is what we call working the carpet — and, for her, it works!"

gg-jolie1

Angelina Jolie is working the glitz and sparkle in her champagne dress. Inaba finds that the neutrality of the look really brings out the actress' incredible beauty. "Your eyes go directly to her face and her stunning and radiant smile. Beautiful!" says Inaba.

Though Inaba loves all three of the Jonas Brothers' individual styles, her favorite here is Nick's dark look. She's also a fan of Joe having the shine thing going on. And Kevin's tie adds a little surprise to the mix. "These three guys are always on my best-dressed list," says Inaba.

grammy-underwood1

Inaba calls Carrie Underwood's gold and silver gown "a dazzler" with its form-flattering shape, which doesn't "look like it was sewn on." The fact she looks so comfortable in so many crystals helps as well. "She always seems so at home in what she wears," says Inaba.

grammy-swift1

Zarian can't help but notice how much Taylor Swift is growing up in front of our eyes in a black, plunging neckline gown.

aa-efron1

"Remember that Milton Bradley board game, Prom Date? Well, our boy Zac here looks like one of those dreamy prom dates behind Door No. 1!" says Kressley. He finds Efron's skinny tailoring and scaled-down lapels and bow tie to be thoroughly modern.

aa-pinto1

One of the most outstanding features about Slumdog Millionaire co-star Freida Pinto's one-sleeved dress is the striking shade of cobalt. "Amazing color on an amazing talent," says Zarian.

grammy-neyo1

Ne-Yo's ensemble has what Inaba calls "a double-take factor." Even though Inaba goes by the idea of one strong focal point per outfit, Ne-Yo is an exception. "I think he can do five or more if he wants too," says Inaba.

"Love, love, love, love this," says Gunn, who adores the color, neckline and jewelry of Amy Adams' look. "I especially love the piping and bodice of the dress, which brings your whole eye up."

aa-portman1

"Natalie Portman is just so naturally gorgeous she doesn't need an overly bold design or lots of accessories to make her look like a movie star," says Kressley. "Portman keeps the hair, make-up and jewels rather minimal and lets her glowing skin and box office-topping bone structure do the heavy lifting."

aa-henson1

Taraji P. Henson really knows how to work a strapless gown that hugs her figure in all the right places. Zarian calls Henson's unique silhouette "a terrific tower of tiers."

aa-downey1

"For guys, the best advice when it comes to red carpet appearances is to keep it simple," says Kressley. Robert Downey Jr. does just that in a simple, peaked lapel jacket, plain-front pant and a sleek white formal shirt. "It keeps the focus on the actor, not the outfit," adds Kressley.
