LUPITA NYONG'O

She's been on the scene for just over a year, but the Oscar winner has already had more fashion hits than some stars have in their whole career. There's no color she can't wear (and Lupita's worn 'em all), no silhouette that doesn't flatter her and no red carpet she hasn't conquered. She's sported quite a number of stunners, but we have a feeling this caped Ralph Lauren Collection gown in particular, which she donned for the Golden Globes, will go down in awards show style history (it's her stylist Micaela Erlanger's favorite!).
