This year's red-carpet season is already off to a strong start.
The best-dressed celebrities are reinventing hot trends and paying tribute to on-screen characters.
Here are the best red-carpet looks celebrities have worn this year — so far.
A new year means a new chance for celebrities to make a mark on the red carpet.
From awards shows like the Golden Globes to prestigious events like the Met Gala, the biggest names in entertainment are gathering to vie for the most prestigious honors in Hollywood and music. At the same time, some are looking to earn a place in red-carpet fashion history.
Some have missed the mark. But a select few pull it off, which is why we're keeping track of the best-dressed celebrities on the red carpet this year. Here's who has made the list so far.
Selena Gomez started awards season off strong in a red dress with bold cutouts at the Golden Globes.
Her silk Armani Privé gown — designed with a high halter neck, floral appliqué, and daring cutouts — made a statement on the Golden Globes red carpet in January.
Gomez paired it with coordinating ruby-red heels, silver diamond Bulgari jewelry, and black nail polish that subtly matched the dress underlining.
Greta Lee fused old Hollywood glamour with the popular bridal trend at the Golden Globes.
The "Past Lives" actor wore a Loewe dress that was best appreciated when she posed to the side, revealing it was semi-backless.
Lee's gown was one of several looks that incorporated the bridal trend on the Golden Globes red carpet. But the decadent fabric and her retro 1950s bob gave Lee an edge, channeling old Hollywood glamour.
Da'Vine Joy Randolph wore a peplum gown with a sequin-embellished bodice in a rich burgundy color at the Golden Globes.
Randolph's custom-made Rodarte gown was crafted from a deep burgundy fabric.
The addition of deep-red sparkly sequins across the top, resembling two opening clamshells, drew subtle parallels to Ariel from "The Little Mermaid."
Margot Robbie reminded us that Barbiecore will never go out of style, so long as she's rocking it.
Robbie continued to pay tribute to her "Barbie" character on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, wearing a sequin-heavy, hot-pink Armani Privé gown.
Inspired by the Superstar Barbie doll from 1977, her custom-made dress featured a deep V-neckline and was accessorized with a fishnet boa.
Dua Lipa's sculptural Schiaparelli gown was a work of art on the Golden Globes red carpet.
The singer's Schiaparelli ensemble brought an element of fine art to the red carpet.
The strapless gown connected a black velvet bodice decorated with gold embellishments that traced the outline of a human body to a low mermaid-style skirt. According to the brand's Instagram, the design was a tribute to a 1938 collaboration between its founder, Elsa Schiaparelli, and the famous Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dalí.
While it wasn't the most practical ensemble, given that Dua Lipa could barely sit in it, the struggle was well worth it.
Tyler James Williams looked cool as can be in a pinstripe suit accessorized with a cream boutonniere at the Golden Globes.
The "Abbott Elementary" star put an original spin on the classic pinstripe suit at the Golden Globes. His tan-colored ensemble consisted of a slim-fitted jacket with oversize shoulder pads and flared pants.
He completed the look with a skinny black tie, a cream-colored floral boutonniere, and shiny black dress shoes.
Speaking to WWD on the red carpet, Williams said he was a big fan of the flared pants.
"I love a flare. I feel like women shouldn't be the only ones to have flow on the red carpet — men should have that chance as well," he said.
Elizabeth Olsen looked angelic in a semi-sheer corset gown at the Golden Globes.
Olsen dazzled in a lace-heavy Vivienne Westwood gown originally designed for the brand's 2023 bridal collection.
The gown stood out among wedding-inspired looks with its delicate lace panels on the skirt and similar detailing across the top of the corset.
The "Marvel" star added a pop of color to her nearly all-white ensemble with a red lip.
Rosamund Pike served gothic glamour in a lace Dior midi dress accessorized with a matching veil.
The all-black tea-length dress was covered in lace and had sheer embroidered fishnet sleeves.
Pike paired it with a matching veil that she originally thought to include after suffering a ski accident during Christmas. Despite healing before the Golden Globes, she wore the dramatic headpiece anyway, telling Variety's Marc Malkin she fell "in love" with the look.
Ava DuVernay reinvented an Audrey Hepburn classic at the Governors Awards.
DuVernay's custom Louis Vuitton gown was reminiscent of the iconic Givenchy evening dress Audrey Hepburn wore in "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
However, the director's version gave the old Hollywood silhouette a modern twist with a daring V-neckline, white poplin padded sleeves, and elbow-length satin gloves.
Florence Pugh switched it up at the Governors Awards in a shimmery peplum dress.
Her soft-pink peplum Rodarte gown featured a delicate halter neck accentuated with a floral appliqué made of tulle.
Olivia Rodrigo proved that simple doesn't always have to mean boring.
The loudest dress in the room isn't always the best, as Rodrigo showed with her floor-length Yves Saint Laurent gown, which had a sweetheart neckline.
The "Drivers License" singer added a pop of color with her glam for the night — ruby-red nail polish and a coordinating red lip.
Barry Keoghan revamped the classic tuxedo at the Governors Awards.
Keoghan's Stella McCartney ensemble was a daring spin on classic menswear.
The black-and-white ensemble modernized the traditional tuxedo with flared pants, a cropped jacket, and lacey detailing poking out from the sleeves.
Greta Lee liked being on this list so much that she did it twice. At the Governors Awards, she was a starlet in scarlet.
Lee's red Bottega Veneta gown was a sharp departure from her bridal-inspired Golden Globes ensemble.
The sculptural gown featured a long corset defined with padded detailing around the neckline and waist. She kept the rest of her look minimal, aside from a pair of shiny silver stilettos.
Barbies can wear tuxedos too, and do it better than any Ken, as America Ferrera showed at the Governors Awards.
The "Barbie" star looked sharp at the Governors Awards in a traditional three-piece tuxedo designed by Moschino.
It featured dramatic lapels and a satin waistband. Ferrera accessorized with black boot heels and red nail polish.
Taraji P. Henson took the floral trend to a new level in an embroidered evening gown.
Her sleek velvet Valdrin Sahiti dress sparkled with intricate gold embroidered flowers that traced the lining on one side. Across the top of her dress, 3D details made the flowers appear as if they were blooming.
Henson completed her look with silver earrings and swept her short bob into a chic side part.
In a sea of black, white, and red outfits at the Governors Awards, Shailene Woodley stood out in a refreshing emerald ensemble.
While most celebrities opted for subdued winter tones at the Governors Awards, Woodley brought a much-needed pop of summer when she arrived in a two-toned green Carolina Herrera dress.
The ball gown had a long emerald skirt and a strappy mint-green top.
Glenn Close arrived at the Governors Awards in an ethereal, long-sleeved Dior gown that nailed the quiet luxury trend.
Quiet luxury continues to be one of the hottest trends in fashion, and Close's simple yet elegant couture Dior dress at the Governors Awards was the perfect example.
The loose-fitting, column-style gown came with long sleeves, a high neckline, and extra fabric detailing on one of the shoulders.
Lily Gladstone looked regal in royal blue at the Critics Choice Awards.
Gladstone graced the red carpet in a deep-blue Christian Siriano ball gown with a sweetheart neckline.
The off-the-shoulder dress featured a voluminous skirt that wrapped around the interior silhouette.
The "Killers of the Flower Moon" actor accessorized with an eye-catching pair of blue-beaded elk ivory earrings finished with dentalium shells.
Matt Bomer also pulled off an all-blue ensemble.
Bomer went all out in a cobalt-blue Berluti suit. He left his matching shirt slightly unbuttoned, drawing attention to the silver necklaces he accessorized with.
The "Fellow Travelers" star completed the look with matching blue dress shoes.
Colman Domingo taught everyone how to pull off layering on the Critics Choice Awards red carpet.
Domingo layered his yellow Valentino suit over a baby-blue shirt and completed the look by wearing a textured gold coat around his shoulders.
The coat revealed a royal-blue lining that subtly tied back to the color of his shirt.
Danielle Brooks was the gift that kept on giving in a voluminous tulle dress with a bow.
Brooks looked pretty in pink in her strappy Monsoori gown. The floor-length dress featured layers of soft pink tulle and an oversize black bow.
Letting the dress shine, Brooks kept the rest of her look relatively simple, opting for a few silver jewelry pieces and a vintage-inspired bob hairstyle.
Even when she's not dressed as Barbie, Margot Robbie still knows how to steal the show on the red carpet.
Robbie, who has already graced BI's best red-carpet looks list, wore a red leather Balmain dress to the Critics Choice Awards. The off-the-shoulder gown featured floral appliqué in a similar leather material.
Her scarlet gown was a sharp departure from her recent Barbiecore red-carpet style, but it did prove that Robbie doesn't need to wear all-pink to capture the spotlight.
Charles Melton dazzled in a red Valentino suit.
Red is proving to be one of the popular color choices this red-carpet season.
At the Critics Choice Awards, Melton was among those who successfully wore the color. He layered a crisp white button-up with a black bow tie under a chic ruby-red suit jacket.
The "May December" star wore coordinating red pants and edgy black platform loafers.

Edebiri completed her look with strappy black stilettos and delicate silver jewelry pieces.
Simona Tabasco brought art to life in a floral collage-style Marni dress.

"The White Lotus" star completed her look with a side-swept hairstyle and pink heels.
Suki Waterhouse delivered a masterclass in maternity red-carpet style at the Emmys.
Waterhouse arrived wearing a backless red Valentino dress that she told E! News was redesigned before the Emmys to fit her baby bump. She and Robert Pattinson are expecting their first child.
The last-minute tailoring was worth it as the "Daisy Jones & The Six" star looked effortlessly chic on the red carpet.
Issa Rae looked angelic in a feathered floor-length gown at the Emmys.
Rae wore a high-neck Pamella Roland dress adorned with hundreds of feathers and intricate silver gems.
Photographs from the red carpet showed Rae playfully waving the long sleeves, proving that high fashion doesn't always have to be so serious.
Donald Glover looked sharp in a black suit lightly embroidered with delicate flower accents.
Glover arrived at the Emmys wearing a black Bode suit jacket and coordinating pants embellished with pale pink and green beads. Woven together, the beads created tiny blooming flowers.
The "Atlanta" star layered the jacket over a low-cut black shirt, completing the look with chic black ballet flats.
Sarah Snook channeled old Hollywood in a red Vivienne Westwood gown.
Snook's red dress featured a built-in corset bodice seamlessly connected to a voluminous draped skirt.
The silhouette gave Snook the air of an old Hollywood starlet, which was only amplified by her dazzling Cartier jewelry pieces.
Miley Cyrus paid homage to icons of the 1970s in a gold chainmail dress at the Grammys.
Cyrus, who became a two-time Grammy Award-winning artist at this year's show, pulled off a daring red-carpet ensemble inspired by 1970s music legends like Tina Turner and Cher.
The golden see-through Maison Margiela dress was made entirely from metallic mesh. Cyrus accessorized with a pair of Tabi heels, Tiffany & Co. jewelry, and a bouffant hairstyle.
Taylor Swift put an edgy twist on the bridal trend.
Swift, who surprised fans by announcing a brand-new studio album at the Grammys, arrived on the red carpet in a sleeveless Schiaparelli corset gown with a daring thigh-high slit.
She added a hint of edginess to the ethereal white gown with black opera gloves, heels, and an assortment of necklaces. One of the pieces was a watch choker set to midnight, a subtle Easter egg reference to the record that won her album of the year and best pop vocal album on the night.
Victoria Monét wore a silky bronze Versace gown with a mermaid skirt.
Before winning best new artist at the Grammys, Monét made her mark on the red carpet in a caramel Versace gown.
The custom-designed satin dress was strapless and featured a semi-sheer bodice. It connected to a ruched skirt at the waist that flowed into a short train. She paired it with a snake-shaped silver necklace.
Lenny Kravitz looked like a quintessential rock star in an all-black.

He accessorized with Saint Laurent boots and vintage Dior glasses.
Ice Spice proved she was the queen of Y2K glam with her denim-on-denim Grammys ensemble.
The rapper, nominated in the best new artist category, put her spin on the Canadian tuxedo at the Grammys.

Colman Domingo elevated the peaked lapel in a strappy pink-and-black suit.
Domingo cemented his spot on our best red-carpet looks of 2024 with his SAG Awards outfit.

Ariana Greenblatt looked striking in a sleeveless red velvet gown with a peaked bodice.
The "Barbie" star wore a bespoke scarlet Vera Wang dress. She told E! News' SAG Awards red-carpet correspondent Laverne Cox that it was made from velvet imported from Italy.
Greenblatt rocked a deep shade of red on her nails, subtly coordinating with the sleeveless dress, and paired it with Simon G jewelry and Jimmy Choo heels.
