It was only a matter of time before Hollywood caught on to fashion’s best-kept secret.

In the past month, Charlize TheronNicole Richie and Faith Hill have all stepped out in Antonio Berardi. First, the Young Adult star wore a modern black-and-white stunner with the label’s trademark bodice detail on Dec. 9. Weeks later, House of Harlow’s creative director eschewed her own designs in favor of the brand’s beaded leggings and oversized blazer. Then, at Wednesday’s Peoples Choice Awards, performer Faith Hill selected his magenta pantsuit.

Gwyneth Paltrow may have put the British designer on the map back in 2008 when she wore his semi-sheer lace design. “When I tried this dress on, I was amazed by the construction and the uniqueness of it,” she said at the time. “It is one of the absolute favorite dresses I have worn.” Over the years, Berardi, who was once John Galliano‘s assistant, has solidified his reputation among Hollywood’s A-list with his romantic and sensual approach to design.

With the expected turnout at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, we wouldn’t be surprised if Berardi’s bold designs made an appearance on the red carpet, but for now… Tell us: Who do you think looks best in Antonio Berardi?
