Pleated Necklines

Beyonce in Christian Dior

Famous fashionistas from Jennie Garth to Beyonce are making their red-carpet rounds in ladylike dresses with feminine pleated necklines and subtly puffed sleeves. Says stylist Brigitte Segura: "It's a familiar silhouette with a confident twist of femme—flattering a curvy figure and shaping a straight figure with curves." Wear the look with simple pumps for ultra-womanly appeal. As Segura says, "It's a put-on-and-go dress with a hint of '50s glamour."

Dresses with built-in drama are the latest craze, with stars from Lauren Conrad to Anne Hathaway donning dresses studded with outrageous accents. These eye-catching looks have "a touch of feminine flirt and an understated confidence," says stylist Brigitte Segura. If you're not ready to invest in a gown, Segura suggests trying out the look with an oversized rosette pin: "Keep it tonal if you're shy."
