BEST: Sarah Paulson

This gothic Rodarte dress is striking and beautiful on Sarah.

BEST: Ryan Reynolds

We didn't think we could love Ryan Reynolds any more - and then he stepped out in this navy suit.

WORST: Ashley Graham

Ashley is usually among our favourites on the red carpet, but this dress/cape combination has too much going on.

BEST: Blake Lively

It's no surprise that Blake won the red carpet in this magnificent Marchesa gown.

WORST: Arianna Huffington

Co-founder of The Huffington Post Arianna slides onto the Worst Dressed list simply for her random blue bra inserts.

BEST: Viola Davis

Viola is a classic Hollywood siren in this figure-hugging gown.

BEST: Margot Robbie

This simple but statement gown works a treat.

WORST: Megyn Kelly

Megyn's cocktail dress feels out of place on the red carpet and does no favours for her on-point hair and makeup.

BEST: Naomi Campbell

Never one to disappoint with her fashion choices, Naomi's Azzedine Alaïa gown nails this seasons statement shoulder trend.

WORST: Leslie Jones

Comedian Leslie Jones is known for her bold fashion choices, but we feel that she played it too safe with this one.

BEST: Riz Ahmed

Riz's tan suit is both spring-appropriate and fashion forward.

BEST: Fan Bingbing

Fan knows how to work the red carpet with a twist.

BEST: Demi Lovato

Demi's oversized belt nearly landed her a place on the Worst Dressed list, but her flawless hair and makeup and striking blue dress colour saved her.

BEST: Janet Mock

Janet's OTT outfit shouldn't work, but somehow it does. Kudos.
