Freida Pinto, Andreja Pejic, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Diane Kruger and more of film and fashion’s finest showed us how best dressed is done for summer.

It’s officially June, the month summer begins, and with the unofficial summer kick-off party weekend already behind us (see ya, Memorial Day) and the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in the rear view, there’s nowhere to go but forward in terms of summer style. Fortunately, the Polo Classic provided all kinds of summer sartorial inspiration by way of gorgeous models and Hollywood stars flaunting their polo field finest — view the summer finery from Maggie Gyllenhaal in super chic all-white, Andreja Pejic in boho-chic epitomized, and Diane Kruger (who manages to be sophisticated in a cut-out jumpsuit) and get a look at the best dressed at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.

Met Gala Best Dressed: 16 of the Ball’s Impeccable Style Stars

The red carpet: where celebrities (and their stylists) show their best stuff. For the Met Gala, the ante is upped considerably — this is where the fashion industry watches with a meticulous eye, where style stars are exalted, and where fashion fails are hard to forget. With Monday evening’s Met Gala theme of China: Through the Looking Glass, there were a certain few who really hit it out of the park, from Rihanna (in custom Guo Pei, a Chinese couturier whose gilded piece welcomes visitors to the exhibit), to a glittering Fan Bing Bing, to Lady Gaga, an empress in Balenciaga. Beyoncé showed off a Givenchy we’ll not soon forget, and Kim Kardashian‘s look reminded us too much of a Beyoncé look (and a Cher look) we’d already seen. So without further ado, here is the Met Gala Best Dressed.

8 Hottest, Chicest, Cutest, Absolute Best Dressed from the 2015 SAG Awards

All photos: John Salangsang/BFAnyc.com

From Jennifer Aniston’s shockingly hot look to Julia Roberts’ almost-perfect menswear look, to Stone’s utter perfection… read on for a glimpse of the best of the best from the SAG Awards.

The Surprise: Gwendoline Christie
You know, given her fashion connects, I’ve always hoped she’d look better than she does on the red carpet… and as kitch as this Gilles Couture look is, I actually like it on her?! So Marilyn! Which I think is so overplayed… but it’s working for Gwendoline. TBH though, I didn’t recognize her at first.

The Smartest: Rosamund Pike
Dior Couture. So cute, so chic. So comfortable looking.

The Sexy One: Jennifer Aniston
Daa-ha-aaang, Jen! You know, on someone else I maybe wouldn’t be as impressed as I am, but given her penchant for black, brown, dull, this patterned, plunging dress she’s wearing is really doing something great for her. And that chain. Hot hot hot. Also: It’s vintage Galliano. So relevant again. This makes me wonder if Anna Wintour had a hand in getting Aniston clothed for the awards. Project?

The Almost: Julia Roberts
Menswear done sexy and nonchalant is menswear done right. I so love the suiting (Givenchy) that Julia Roberts wore… but the shoes are ruining it. How much better would a pair of brogues have done? Ugh open toe with a suit. Bleh. But the rest is A+.

The Dreamboat: Eddie Redmayne
In dashing, double-breasted Prada. Unf.

Ultimate Perfection: Emma Stone
Emma Stone is my favorite f*cking celeb ever. She’s so cute, so pretty, so stylish, so chic, so fun. I am obsessed with how she looks and what comes across as the most charming personality. She’s been hitting the nail on the head repeatedly for years, but this look, all at once chic, sexy, sassy, cool (ear jacket, hello) and weirdly unfussy for sporting a train… She is wearing Dior Couture. And also her lipstick and eyelashes are bomb. Seriously amazing beauty look. Ugh I want to wear this to my future wedding. Is that weird? I am in love. She wins.

Good Enough: Gretchen Mol
Just so elegant in her Dennis Basso gown.

Cutest: Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons
And finally… this moment just deserves some recognition. Aww.
