Maggie Q Taylor Swift Rachel Bilson

White out: Maggie Q in a Maxmara bodysuit and skirt (left), Taylor Swift in Rafael Cennamo (centre) and Rachel Bilson in a Chloe dress with Brian Atwood shoes (right)

Ashley Greene Kim Kardashian Raven-Symone

Monochrome: Ashley Greene”s Givenchy dress (left) proved a better choice than Kim Kardashian”s (centre), which was too fussy with its snake belt and ostrich skirt. Raven Symone”s was another disappointment (right). The blazer and white tank made her look like she was going to the office, and the sheer hosiery was the wrong hue

Troian Bellisario Lucy Hale Cameron Diaz Kylie Jenner

Muted hues: Taupe and black was an eye-catching combination on Pretty Little Liars” Troian Bellisario (left) and Lucy Hale (second left) who teamed her Cengiz Abazoğlu dress with heel-less Giuseppe Zanotti heels. Cameron Diaz (centre right) and Kylie Jenner (far right) could have benefited from some colour to lift their looks

Kat Graham Selena Gomez Kaley Cuoco Josie Loren

Dramatic details: Kat Graham (left) in a Falguni & Shane Peacock dress, and Selena Gomez (second left) in Erin Fetherston both had floor-skimming features on their short frocks. Kaley Cuoco (centre right) wore Rebecca Taylor”s shimmering tiered gown, while Josie Loren”s high neck and sleeves kept her dress sophisticated

Demi Lovato Tyra Banks Fergie

Yellow fever: Demi Lovato (left) wore a white lace dress with yellow piping that did nothing for her figure; Tyra Banks appeared to be taking her style lead from a bumblebee in her racy bodysuit (centre) and Fergie failed at the star trend in OTT Dolce & Gabbana (right)

AnnaSophia Robb Zooey Deschanel Nikki Reed Khloe Kardashian

Not so charming prints (from left): AnnaSophia Robb”s Catherine Malandrino dress looked a little ordinary; Zooey Deschanel”s floral Alice & Olivia dress was not formal enough; Nikki Reed looked like she was wearing a giant scarf in her Etro gown; Khloe Kardashian”s Roberto Cavalli kaftan was more beachwear than eveningwear

Zoe Saldana Zoe Saldana

Fun with fashion: While Zoe Saldana”s Lanvin dress appeared to have been made out of tinfoil, she seemed to be having a ball, which redeemed the entire look
