Rachel McAdams - H 2015

Who says all-black is boring?

The Dress: A black off-the-shoulder frock with a cutout midsection from Self-Portait's resort 2016 collection.

The Wearer: Rachel McAdams, who was styled by duo Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. The styling team is also responsible for Cara Delevingne's winning Paper Towns press-tour looks.

The Event: The New York premiere of boxing drama Southpaw. The Canadian actress was joined by co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomie Harris (in a white Cushnie et Ochs cocktail dress and Christian Louboutin pumps) and 50 Cent.

Why We Dig: Though an all-black ensemble sometimes can be a snooze on the red carpet, McAdams' Self-Portrait dress had all the elements of a winning look. From bare shoulders to the ab-baring cutout, the actress showed just enough skin to keep the fit-and-flare skirt from feeling too safe. She kept her footwear simple, wearing the uber-popular Stuart Weitzman "Nudist" sandals, but amped up the glam factor with Tiffany & Co. bracelets, rings and stunning diamond ear cuffs. What a total knockout.
