We were treated to countless stunning red carpet looks featuring long gowns in 2014. Two of the labels that ruled the red carpet events last year were Atelier Versace and Elie Saab. From movie premieres to the Oscars, the hottest ladies of Hollywood had these designers on top of their lists.

Here are the most unforgettable red carpet dresses of 2014:

1. Blake Lively in Gucci Première

Blake Lively showed everyone at the Cannes Film Festival how high-end glamour should be worn. The blonde was absolutely stunning in a floor-length Gucci Première full-pleated chiffon dress in a gorgeous burgundy color. She finished the glamorous look with ruby Lorraine Schwartz vine earrings and gold Casadei sandals.

2. Elizabeth Banks in Elie Saab Couture

Elizabeth Banks was on a winning fashion streak last year, but her Elie Saab Couture gown at the London premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 was her best look of 2014. Featuring dreamy florals and a stormy print, the breathtaking couture dress made everyone’s jaw drop and had fashion critics loving the actress even more.

3. Lily Collins in Elie Saab Couture

There were several beautiful Elie Saab moments in 2014, and Lily Collins‘ magical ombre gown is definitely one of their highlights. The actress looked like a fairy tale princess as she wowed the crowd during the premiere of her film Love, Rosie in a lovely couture gown. Her retro-styled wavy bob and berry-hued lips made the look even more perfect.

4. Lupita Nyong’o in Prada

Lupita Nyong’o was a breakout star both in films and on the red carpet. She has worn the hottest labels, from Dior to Lanvin, but our favorite is the Cinderella-inspired ensemble that she wore at the Oscars. Lupita was impeccable in her powder blue Prada gown featuring a deep plunging neckline and romantic pleats. She kept the look pretty with a bedazzled headband and minimal jewelry.

5. Emma Stone in Atelier Versace

Another star who nailed her red carpet ensembles last year was Emma Stone, who looks divine in classic styles. The outfit responsible for her best red carpet moment in 2014 was her showstopping bright yellow pleated dress from Atelier Versace. The gown features Swarovski crystals on the padded shoulders and a cinched waist that highlighted Emma’s lean frame. She looked like a classic Hollywood star with her screen-siren waves and dark lips.

6. Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace

Caped dresses were a huge hit in 2014, and Kate Hudson schooled everyone on how to rock this trend. Wearing a scene-stealing Atelier Versace dress at last year’s Oscars, Kate wowed us with her amazing look. The dramatic white gown features boldly padded shoulders, beautiful beading, a plunging neckline, and a short train. Even with a lot of things going on in this couture dress, the ageless A-lister pulled it off extremely well, making it our favorite Kate Hudson look from 2014.
