No Oscar dress list is complete without Audrey Hepburn. The iconic actress looked every bit the modern movie star in a sweet, ivory lace gown designed for her by longtime sartorial collaborator Hubert de Givenchy in 1953, the year she won best actress for her work in Roman Holiday.

Madonna and Michael Jackson1991

Michael Jackson on her arm, $20 million in Harry Winston diamonds and a blinding Bob Mackie sequined gown - no, Madonna didn't opt for low-key at the 1991 Academy Awards. But she looked like an old-school movie star anyway and still retained her signature pluck. And in the end, that's the true mark of successful style.

Nicole Kidman 1997

New Rules in Party Style: Celeb Party Looks Inspiration

Tis' the season for beading, sequins and jewels. Tis the season to be stylish, so let your fave stars guide the way. Whether you're curvy, boyish, petite, or full-figured, you can get inspiration from the celebs about what-to-wear panic, be prepared to dress your party best this season.

Kristen Stewart

Boyish: Go Seriously Girly
Kristen Stewart defied her tomboyish figure—and style—in a dress that is girly to the max. The ornate bow of the asymmetrical lace frock gave the illusion of a strong shoulder and the cummerbund-like belt created curves on her straight and narrow frame.

Emma Stone

Embellish a Little Or a Lot
Take note from Emma Stone and keep the details the same color as the fabric to avoid festive overload. Look for a frock with a 3-D effect to stand out in the crowd of accoutrements.

Fuller Figured dress

Fuller Figured: Try Anything-but-Shy Silhouettes
Reaching for a sack dress might be a natural reflex, but a loose shape will only add pounds. Enhance your figure in a form-shaping sheath dress or a forgiving wrap dress. And black is not your only choice hue this season: Embrace navy, gunmetal gray, and Bordeaux—all of which are rich and slimming. Reward your newfound bravery with a bold accessory a la Christina Hendricks.

White Feels Right

White Feels Right
Take a cue from model Chanel Iman in Dolce & Gabbana and dress yourself in head-to-toe white this season. This includes, but is not limited to, a delicate white shift dress, white diamonds, white spiked pumps and white lingerie pretty enough to let peek through.

formal dresses for 2013 party

Sally McGraw, blogger and founder of AlreadyPretty, had some advice on choosing the right sparkles for your shape: "Since sequins sparkle and shine, they attract the eye. If you're self-conscious about a particular body part -- your hips, your midsection, your arms -- consider a dress design that features sequins elsewhere. For instance, a woman who would prefer to downplay her hips could seek out a dress with a sequined bodice and sleeves but a matte, sequin-free skirt. Direct attention to the aspects of your figure that you love with strategic sequin placement." "A sequin clutch adds a lot of glamour." Adds Kalli Mehra of Kokommo, "A chic sequinned bag is a must have to make a simple outfit look smart. Bags with dull sequins give a very antique and vintage look." So girls, get ready to rock that party!
