Five best dressed: Twilight hotties, Selena Gomez and a brunette Dakota Fanning

Posted on November 14, 2012 by

If you were looking for some of the best looks from this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards @Britt_Mahaney has got you covered here. The final installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part 2, had its L.A. premiere on Monday and the stars of the movie made a major red carpet impact. So let us all fangirl together and see some of the best looks from that night– and don’t worry non-Twilight fans we have some non-Twilight stars too.

Kristen Stewart

What she’s wearing: K-Stew stunned everybody in this strapless nude and sheer corseted Zuhair Murad dress at the Twilight Sage: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere.

Why we love it: I’ve always been a fan of Stewart’s edgy and non-cutesy style, especially in the past year or so when she has seem to come into her own. The last time she donned Zuhair Murad she made it on this list, so this is clearly a match made in heaven. However with this look, Stewart proves that she can be the sexy bombshell that most people might have written her off for. This look is all woman and has come a long way since 2008 when she wore this tri-colour Balenciaga dress at the L.A. premiere for the first Twilight movie. The nude colour was a trend on the red carpet but she took it to the next level with the mix of sheer lace and cool corset, quite the risqué look but it all works.

Takeaway: While perfect for the red carpet this dress wouldn’t work in everyday life. Overall this is a very sexy look so take inspiration from the dress and try to incorporate nude colours, sheer fabrics, and lace into your outfit. You’ll be on trend for the season.

Dakota Fanning

What she’s wearing: The elder Fanning not only stepped out in teal Elie Saab Couture gown on the Twilight red carpet but she also introduced a new brunette hairdo as well.

 Why we love it: I had to do a second look to realize it was Dakota, which goes to show you the power of a new hair colour! Not only do I love the new darker locks but they go perfectly well with the teal colour of her dress. The asymmetrical dress has nice draping on the side but also has stunning embellished lace detail which continues to the back of the dress to give this dress some pop of sparkle.

Takeaway: When you want to give your new hairstyle a bigger impact you sometimes got to pair it with the right outfit, especially in the right colour. And Fanning does just that by matching her new brunette hair with a gorgeous teal colour.

The Men of Twilight: Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, and Jackson Rathbone

What they’re wearing: All four guys walked the red carpet looking very dapper in suits. Pattinson in emerald green woven Gucci suit, Lautner in a classic grey Z Zegna suit, Lutz in a black and midnight blue satin Roberto Cavalli suit, and Rathbone in an all navy  look in Calvin Klein.

Why we love it: I’m being selfish by including the four looks onto the list, but I usually only include one male look onto the list so I don’t feel bad for having multiple actors share a spot. People tend to disregard suits as not being fashion forward, while yes suits can be classic and somewhat timeless, you can still have fun with them. Pattinson and Ratbone both look fantastic in these bold and fun colours, while Lautner goes for simple and minimal. Lutz stood out from the rest with his satin blue lapels, which reminded me of James Bond (a style icon for every male).

Takeaway: Have fun with your suits and take some fashion chances. Opt for classic like Lautner, bold colour like Pattinson, monochromatic like Rathbone, or fun with textures like Lutz.

Selena Gomez

What she’s wearing: Gomez wore a stunning sheer white peplum Giambattista Valli dress at the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

Why we love it: Gomez is making headlines for her split from Justin Bieber, so it only makes sense that she’s putting her best face forward by looking her best.The macramé detail on the bodice might seem too risqué for Gomez but one tends to grow up when getting out of a relationship, especially when that relationship was a major part of Gomez’s teenage life. The peplum silhouette has been on trend but this design takes it further by continuing the macramé detail onto the peplum part of the dress.

Takeaway: Going through an emotional time post-break up? Wear something sexy to boost up your confidence, which is great because it’ll also send a message to others that you’ve moved on and that you’re over it.

Yaya DaCosta

What she’s wearing: The America’s Next Top Model alum turned actress was snapped in a strapless African print Tafari dress and black blazer at the 2012 Women For Women International Gala in New York City.

Why we love it: I’m down for any ANTM alum making it big post-Tyra and DaCosta has done just done that with a very impressive acting career. I’m a big fan of prints especially cultural ones since they give an outfit a story behind them. And if you ever watched DaCosta on ANTM you know she is globally conscious and revels in multicultural inspirations. The blazer modernizes the cultural print and the modern silhouette makes it more accessible to those of us who have never been to the African continent.

Takeaway: Next time you go on vacation don’t just settle on souvenirs from the airport, try hitting up the local fabric or textile store to see some of the local prints. You might be able to incorporate those new textiles in a modern way into an outfit, or even get a seamstress to cut something truly original for you. And if getting a seamstress is too much work, just going to a local fabric store will help you get a feel for local designs, aesthetics, and fashions.
