Risky Business1 of 15
By Brienne Walsh
From sheer ball gowns to architectural silhouettes, celebrities made some daring sartorial choices on the red carpet this year. But rather than landing them on a worst-dressed list, these 14 fashion-forward looks proved that sometimes big risks have big rewards.

At Cannes, Olivia Palermo broke the mold of the typical red carpet ensemble—think: plunging necklines and bare shoulders—by wearing a high-neck Roberto Cavalli gown and embroidered jacket.
Sheer Triumph3 of 15
At the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere in Los Angeles, Jennifer Lawrence managed to make sheer look sophisticated in a leotard and see-through Dior ball gown.

At an event in Los Angeles, Nicole Richie opted for a fresh, playful ensemble in Alberta Ferretti's maxi skirt and crop top.
Lace Case6 of 15
Lily Collins proved it's possible to combine sex appeal and sophistication in a Michail Sykianakis lace dress with strategically placed embroidery.
Mickey Mouse Club7 of 15
Miley Cyrus made fashion headlines this year in several daring outfits, but we liked this homage to her Disney origins. The singer wore a cropped Marc Jacobs sweater and striped skirt for a whimsical yet grown-up look.

High Roller9 of 15
Kerry Washington brought back the trendy high-low hemline at the MTV Movie Awards in an eye-catching Michael Kors dress.
Uneven Ground10 of 15
The asymmetrical hem on this Vionnet dress would overwhelm most women, but on Zoe Saldana, the gown looked positively regal.
Outta This World11 of 15
The sequined Armani dress Cate Blanchett wore to an awards show in Sydney looks like something an incredibly glamorous spaceship commander might wear in a sci-fi movie.
In Uniform12 of 15
In a beret and Chanel dress with a Peter Pan collar, Diane Kruger radiated schoolgirl charm without appearing too juvenile.
Flying Colors13 of 15
Spotted in New York in November, Kim Kardashian expertly mixed vibrant colors and textures—a citrine Max Mara coat, a purple sweater, a metallic Lanvin skirt—for a stunning outfit.
Suit Up14 of 15
Shiny suits might belong to the Rat Pack, but model Cara Delevingne pulled off the look by pairing her metallic version with a feminine blouse.
Disco Fever15 of 15
It's not easy rocking a head-to-toe print, but in Diane von Furstenberg's '70s-inspired jumpsuit, Solange Knowles looked sleek, modern and stylish.
