Katherine Heigl Wins This Week's Best Dress in Summer's Version of the LBD

07/19/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Every woman loves her little black dress. It’s slimming, chic and can be worn to pretty much any event imaginable. But when summertime rolls around, we love trading in our dark hues for our other favorite frock: the little white dress. It appears that many celebs broke out their LWDs for the red carpet this week, but ultimately, PEOPLE readers voted and Katherine Heigl took home the win on our Most Loved Looks page in her fit-and-flare creation.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the actress on the red carpet, but she certainly knows how to come back with a bang. She attended NBCUniversal’s Summer TCA Tour wearing an A-line cap-sleeved Michael Kors dress, which she belted and paired with some brown snakeskin Manolo Blahnik pumps. She kept her hair up in a mini pompadour and finished with a subtle smoky eye and glossy lip.

Ashley Greene also broke out a LWD for her appearance at the Wish I was Here screening in N.Y.C.. Her long-sleeved ivory Alexander McQueen shift was paired with coordinating Christian Louboutin pumps, studded clutch (also McQueen) and sleek ombré waves that have us considering a call to our hairstylist and booking a cut-and-color.

Big trends always come in threes, so it was no surprise when we saw yet another white dress on Julie Bowen in a Dsquared2 midi — although we were a bit surprised to discover it was wool! Never would we think to wear this material in the middle of summer, but somehow, she makes it work.

Do you think Katherine deserved this week’s best-dressed title? Or should one of the other LWDs taken the spotlight?

No way! See Keri Russell’s white ensemble if you want to see true style and beauty. This looks like something my mom wears!

How much did her publicist pay for this planted story? “Sleek sombre waves” ?? She has a matronly pulled back bun and an equally meh dress. Are we now going to be subjected to having her shoved down our throats like the Kardasians? Ugh. No one is fooled by these lame planted stories. She is so well known for her bad style, this story is a joke.
