We'll take a look at some pale hues first: Even though I've had it up to here with beige/tan/skintoned dresses, this flowy column on model Hanneli Mustaparta is really quite pretty. Orange lip color? Divine. And that Loch Ness Monster pony is the perfect summer 'do.

Holy crap Ireland Baldwin looks so much like her mother. Remember that one James Bond movie Kim Basinger was in that involved jazzercise and video games? Good times.

The next three — all in in deeply saturated color — are the best. First: Iman makes elegance look easy. A scarlet gown that hugs just so, flatters her skin and shoulders, is befitting of the goddess that she is. (Be tee dubs, that's Kenneth Cole on the right.)

Best dressed, even though she almost always wears the same thing (sheer, fitted, clingy): Jennifer Lopez. Shimmery blue figure-hugging stretch lace with a hint of skin, clean makeup and sleek hair. Beautiful.
