5 of the best: Joanne's red carpet picks

Smaller labels are great but there's no doubt that the heavy-hitters have bags of wow-factor. I do love the Italians - and those labels have provided some stand-out moments at the Academy Awards recently. Classic and elegant old-Hollywood vibes always work well. It's what I'm known for and I think you'll never get it really wrong if you follow that blueprint."

Valentino: Jennifer Aniston Oscars 2013. "Red turns heads - and I love the flowing shape of this dress. It's a little different from her usual style too."

Pucci: Selena Gomez Vanity Fair Oscars party 2014. "When dressing someone young, you don't want to swamp them in something OTT. This strikes a balance between sexy and sophisticated."

Armani Prive: Penelope Cruz Oscars 2012. "I'm a romantic at heart! And this is a romantic dress. The colour just works - and Penelope looks like a superstar."

Roberto Cavalli: Kristin Chenoweth Oscars 2014. "Cavalli always offers a strong look - and this is one of them. But those gorgeous sclassic lines are still there. It's a nice balance."

Atelier Versace: Kate Hudson Oscars 2014. "I love 35-year-old Kate Hudson - her body definitely inspires me to do more yoga! This dress could have been disastrous on someone else, but Kate aways shines when she wears Atelier Versace."
