This Week's Best Dressed Star: Ali Larter Makes a Beyoncé Sandwich

Jessica Alba Zuhair MuradLandov

Her love may be on top, but unfortunately for Beyoncé, her ensemble on this week’s 10 Most Loved Looks list is not. That honor belongs to Ali Larter, who turned our world upside down by proving that the impossible feat of outshining Queen Bey is in fact, possible (gasp!).

PHOTOS: Vote on more star looks in Last Night’s Look!

The blonde bombshell nabbed the number one spot in a flowy red chiffon spaghetti strap dress that she belted at the waist and paired with snakeskin ankle strap heels and a coordinating snakeskin clutch at the Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival. The actress’s classic red dress garnered nearly 26,000 votes, packing enough of a punch to beat out the superstar songstress’s body-hugging black dress with cut-out panels along the sides that she complimented with a whole lot of Lorraine Schwartz bling and sky-high platform heels at a post-VMAs party (earning 21,000+ votes).

Trailing close behind Beyoncè’s number two spot is Ali Larter again (how greedy!), earning over 21,000 “Love it” votes in a strapless Marchesa floral-print peplum dress that she wore to a party celbrating the release of her cookbook Kitchen Revelry in West Hollywood.

Rounding out the top five is Milla Jovovich’s black tweed mini and open-toe booties combo alongside Jordana Brewster wearing a silky white tank above a graphic-printed skirt and ankle-strap sandals.

Tell us: What do you think? Did Ali deserve the title of best dressed star? Or was someone else your favorite?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has their own opinion as to who is best dressed. I’ve never thought Queen B is at the top of the list but others think differently. So it goes.

Amp on

You guys just lost me as a reader by referring to Beyonce as “Queen Bey”. Could you BE any more biased? For as much as a “fashion plate” as you make her sound, rarely does she ever look good enough (in my opinion) to top the lists all of the time. Beautiful woman, but doesn’t pick things that would make her a knock out.

Mel on

I agree with Amp. Queen Bey?!? Seriously……….is People going to start calling Obama King next? Beyonce is not a style icon in my eyes but that’s my opinion. Others disagree and think she is.

chubs2skinny on

I agree with comments. Given that Beyonce is a beautiful woman but I can name numerous women who are even more beautiful Stop with the “queen” stuff and give up the bias.

jules on

Anyone who beats Beyonce out of ANYTHING is a good day!!!

Bamabelle83 on

Beyonce is not a fashion icon. I have never cared for her taste in clothes so in my opinion there wasnt any competition. Ali did however look beautiful.

really? on

Classic tale of the media building someone up to knock them down. And why are we comparing Ali to Beyonce?, you’ve GOT to do better.

ashley on

beyonce sucks.

Natalie on

Beyonce smeyonce who cares. But seriously? This is the most boring basic red dress.

deanna on

Ali Larter looks lovey, as always.

Butterbaby on

Major co-sign to all of the posts!!! Thank you! Since when did she become a fashion icon? Just because someone over saturates the media it does not make them a fashion icon! What’s sad is Beyonce has worn sooooo many things she ought not to but gets 2 thumbs up because why? Ali out did herself with this number. Just gorgeous. Classy and feminine!
Beyonce need to color them roots once in a while to match the rest of that blonde weave she wears. Let her get that under wraps before you peg her a “fashion icon”. IJS

Queen Bey should be the “queen Of TWERKING”, that what she does best AND she is NOT the prettiest person around- She was twerking at last years Super Bowl—Remember her thrusting all of the stadium??

Raffaele Zuccaro on

I guess the VERY LIBERAL entertainment POLICE are at it again– You just dont like the truth-

Barbara on

I simply do not get Beyonce. The woman wants to be white so bad she can taste it. Blonde hair? Please. She’s very attractive, but not the hottest woman around by any means. And before some pinhead accuses me of being jealous of Beyonce, I would have to see something to be jealous of. And I don’t. Personally, I think Selena Gomez makes Beyonce look silly. And she stays true to her heritage.

Strange article, I have never thought of Beyonce as a fashion icon, she is nice looking but I don’t think she is into fashion. Jlo would be a better pick. Someone wrote about Obama being called King, how did Obama get into this discussion, he is our president , you can burst with hatred about him sitting in the oval office but after you implode he will still be sitting in the oval office.

Ava Hill on

I have a few comments. First,Queen Bey is a name that her loyal fans came up with and the media has ran with it. Second, that red dress was not hot. Third, who cares if she’s wearing a weave? Her complexion helps her pull off different colors. Lastly, although I will not go to her concerts, you cant deny that years from now Beyoncé will still be accepting awards.

Awe so sweet btw peeps Jonathan taylor thomas is Borderline personality disorder and his mother is a narcissistic sociopath. He’s sabotages his relationships! No woman gonna take kindly to guys who are afraid of their mothers espically in their 30s and 40s.

evelyn on

I just like her music and twerking

Maria on

Barbara as far as Beyonce trying to be white because her hair is blonde. Why do so many Caucasian’s tan all the time? Is it because they want to black? If your tanning you obviously dont like your God giving color. How is she suppose to stay to her roots by dancing in African clothes and beating on drums?



Deb on

At least 8 others besides Beyonce beat her out. Did she get her family to vote more than once…….

leslie on

First of all, I think Ali looked wonderful. Very beautiful. Second of all…I don’t understand why everyone thinks that Beyonce is so stunning. In my opinion she never really was. I agree, someone else posted about Selena Gomez….she is beautiful. Beyonce’s clothes are ok….by style icon? Give me a break.


thenitenurse on

So what is Ali doing lately career wise?

Nancy on

OMG! Say it isn’t so! Someone BEAT OUT BEYONCE in the fashion world. PUHLEEZE. Ali Larter, hands down, one of the best dressers in Hollywood. Beyoncé . . . NEVER. Overrated as the day is long.

Nanu 08 on

Kate Middleton is the worlds most beautiful woman……..she is elegant, classy, and her style is fabulous so stars in the USA should take a lesson from her on how to dress being a lady……

Cakie on

This article is about some bull****. Why try and start a problem between two stars and have all the haters picking sides. People you suck unsubscribe me.

Shannon on

Geez people lighten up. Beyonce is called queen bey by her fans. Just like Jennifer Lopez is called JLo. I think the writer in the article was only referring to that. Goodness!!!!

Anonymous on

Beyonce is still on top. Comparing the two. Not! Ali may have won best dress. She don’t have nothing on my girl Beyonce. Stop comparing these women. This ain’t middle school.

Shiela kerr on

Ease up people! The title referred to is a euphemism!

Libby on

Ali looks amazing! However her look and Beyonces look have absolutely nothing to do with one another. Why must people be soo cruel towards Beyonce. She seems to be the most humble and sweetest person. And has never had any trouble with the law or men. Too boring for you? No one can deny her beauty and style. Jealous much? She’s a superstar and talented. Marries with a child. I’ve seen people gives more praise to Lindsey Loha !

Sharon on

Beyonce is no fashion icon! She is boring and basic. Afraid to take risks! Also Queen she is NOT!!!!

Calm down on

“Queen Bey” is just a nickname. What’s the big deal? Obama King? What a ridiculous comparison. Ali looks great. This is a about the most stylish look of the week, lets not get so dramatic about it.
