We’ve always said that StyleWatch readers appreciate the power of the perfect little black dress. The two most loved star looks this week weren’t jaw-dropping gowns, but instead perfectly executed versions of the wardrobe staple.

Anne Hathaway nabbed the No. 1 spot, with more than 15,000 votes, thanks to the simple black sleeveless number she wore to the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon in Beverly Hills. She gave the pretty piece even more polish with black ankle-strap sandals, Jamie Wolf earrings and Jennifer Meyer bracelets and rings.


The runner-up LBD was spotted on Jessica Chastain, who paired her peplum sheath with nude pumps and a pretty pink lip at the The Hollywood Reporter‘s Oscar Nominees Night in L.A.

They should give her the Academy Award early, so we don’t have to watch her pathetic anticipation for two hours.

Best dressed? She’s wearing a plain black dress with plain black heels. And please, People Mag, don’t put this overrated actress in the same sentence as Audrey Hepburn.

PERFECTION. Love her new short hair, the simplicity of the black–she looks amazing.

Please don’t compare her to Audrey Hepburn. Not even close.

I’m not jealous or hateful but there’s nothing special about this dress. It’s just a plain, black dress paired with strappy sandals, a go to look for women for decades and this makes the list of best dressed?!

I like her hair in this picture, and she looks classy. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but she seems to carry herself with dignity, which I cannot say for most of the other Hollyweirdo celebs.

The only movie I liked her in is the Princess Diaries. Don’t get the excitement over her. She’s the Geena Davis of the millennium and where is Geena now?

Ms. Hathaway is a very talented and beautiful woman but please don’t compare her to Audrey Hepburn. She has none of the natural grace, charm or compassion that Ms. Hepburn possessed.
