I think we can all agree that Dita Von Teese needs to be in this show, every year, in some variation on this classic. "Glamour" isn't even a strong enough word!

Natasha Bedignfield also went dramatically Old Hollywood.

Ann Curry took the soft, romantic route. (Which, along with glam and sexy, is one of the major red-dress categories.)

Also softly Valentine-apropos: Archie Panjabi.

Gayle King was totally classic.

Eva Amurri was one of the few who did something really unexpected with her silhouette; adorable.

In the mini camp: Katrina Bowden.
