Is white the official gown color of the year? From the looks we’ve seen on the red carpet these past few weeks, it sure looks like it.

We’ve only barely scratched the surface of February and already we’ve seen enough white dresses to last us a lifetime.

But it’s time for a round-up. Tell us, who do you think did this color most justice? Who needs to fire her fashion stylist?

1. Rosamund Pike in Valentino

The ‘Gone Girl’ actress earned both approval and disapproval in her bridal-inspired Valentino ensemble.

“The thing that was usual about this morning is that usually I’m awakened by somebody who wants food,” Rosamund told TheWrap right after getting the nomination for Best Actress for her work in Gone Girl.

“This time it was by somebody delivering amazing news.”

“It was delicious chaos,” she added. “Me and the two boys in the bed talking to people on the phone. I shift from talking about nominations to talking about dinosaurs.”

The 39-year-old actress wore a Dior Couture gown so similar to what Jennifer Lawrence wore a few months back.

3. Ginnifer Goodwin in Delphine Manivet

Ginnifer Goodwin mostly failed in this rather unflattering Delphine Manivet dress that she wore with a pair of Palter DeLiso pumps.

She and her co-stars from Downton Abbey won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, beating out the casts of Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Homeland, and House of Cards.

7. Jessica Chastain in Antonio Berardi

The 37-year-old donned an intricate, Oriental-inspired gown from Antonio Berardi. The gown has the right mixture of conservative and glam but without being too boring.

“Today is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday so it got me thinking about our need to build the strength of diversity in our industry and to stand together against homophobic, sexiest, misogynistic, anti-Semitic, and racist agendas,” Jessica said on stage while accepting the Critics’ Choice MVP Award.

“I’m an optimist and I can’t help but feel hopeful about the future of film, especially looking at all these beautiful people in this room. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’ and I would like to encourage everyone in this room to please speak up.”

8. Paula Patton in Aiisha Ramadan

According to many, this gorgeously-beaded Aiisha Ramadan gown is one of Paula’s best red carpet choices.
