In a sea of mermaid-style gowns without a gam in sight, Eva dared to bare thanks to a sky-high slit in this custom Pucci confection. “This works because she's pretty covered up elsewhere and her leg is the ‘wow’ moment of the look,” says Albanese.

Nashville’s country cutie was all grown-up glam in a sweetheart-neckline Roberto Cavalli gown that seemed to shine a spotlight on Hayden Panettiere’s toned upper body. A little fishtail flare and some strategic shirring around the waist made her figure the one to beat at this award’s ceremony. “She has an athletic frame that’s displayed in the most feminine way in this soft pink gown,” says Albanese.
