Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the most memorable red carpet fashion moments of 2017 — the good, the bad and the fugly! — starting with the stunning, star-embellished Valentino gown that Emma Stone wore during the Golden Globes. The dress unforgettably paid homage to "City of Stars," the hit song from the film "La La Land." And apparently it brought the actress good luck: She won an award for her performance in the film later that night. Now keep reading for more of the year's most unforgettable red carpet looks…
Fashion critics were divided over the fierce custom yellow Oscar de la Renta ensemble that Rihanna donned while launching her latest Fenty Beauty collection during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 7. She paired a long-sleeved T-shirt tied at the waist with a voluminous skirt featuring a thigh-high slit that showed off her laced René Caovilla sandals. Whether you loved it or hated it, it was certainly one of the most memorable looks of the summer.
Halle Berry donned the dress that launched a thousand pregnancy rumors — a silver design by Gosia Baczynska — during the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles on June 3. The actress was forced to shoot down reports that she was expecting after she hit the purple carpet in this unfortunate frock.
Steven Tyler memorably donned pants under a white wrap-dress with a plunging neckline, a tie at the waist and pockets during the closing night gala of Celebrity Fight Night in Rome on Sept. 10. The 69-year-old rocker posed on the blue carpet with his 28-year-old girlfriend, Aimee Preston, who also wore a white dress.

Ruth Negga officially signaled her arrival when she showed up to the Oscars in this showstopper of a gown — a red long-sleeved Valentino look with a high neckline. Jeweler Irene Neuwirth created her Jazz Age-inspired headpiece and earrings, which featured Mozambican rubies from Gemfields. Wow.

The white Christian Siriano gown that Carly Steel donned during the Met Gala was nothing to write home about, but she had one of the most talked-about ensembles of the evening thanks to her intricate bejeweled Arlene Barclay headpiece.
Irina Shayk made headlines when she returned to the red carpet for the first time since welcoming a child with Bradley Cooper. The supermodel stunned in a custom yellow Versace gown with a thigh-high slit during the 70th Cannes Film Festival premiere of "Radiance."
Priyanka Chopra kicked off the trench coat-inspired trend in a Ralph Lauren Collection dress with a massive train during the Met Gala.

Janelle Monae saved the best for last after bringing her fashion A-game to countless red carpets during awards season. The Elie Saab creation she wore to the Oscars was a work of art. Whether you loved it or hated it, there was no denying the impeccable craftsmanship that went into this gown.

Sarah Jessica Parker memorably donned a long-sleeved gown from Vera Wang's 2017 bridal collection during the Golden Globes. The dress itself wasn't terrible, but there's not much interesting about it except that it's a wedding dress, and on one of Hollywood's biggest nights, boring is NOT the way to go.
Millie Bobby Brown proved why she's Hollywood's most fashionable young star when she arrived at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in a long-sleeved Calvin Klein shift dress and white boots. It was simultaneously one of the most simple and one of the most chic ensembles of the evening.
Jennifer Lopez used the Grammys as an opportunity to show off her absolutely unbelievable figure. She might have looked amazing, but it had nothing to do with the Ralph & Russo gown she wore. The sleeveless halter dress featured a thigh-high slit and a mess of tulle at the collar.
Heidi Klum also used the Grammys as an opportunity to show off her enviable bod in an unworthy dress. The supermodel donned a silver sequined Philip Plein T-shirt dress that flaunted her slim stems. It's a cute look for, like, a nightclub opening, but for music's biggest night? Not so much.
Bella Thorne donned some truly terrible red carpet ensembles during 2017, so it was difficult for us to pin down the one we hated the most. Ultimately, though, it was the getup she wore during Freeform's Upfront presentation in New York City on April 19 that made us cringe the most. The actress wore a fishnet bodysuit under a long-sleeved crop top and white pants with opened buttons on the sides of the legs. She completed her look with animal-print boots because… why not?!
Cee-Lo Green apparently confused the Grammys with Halloween. We may hate this attention-seeking sartorial selection, but we can't forget about it either. Sigh.

Zoe Saldana kept things interesting in a shiny, sequined orange Emilio Pucci dress with a collar and fringe along the midriff, hem and back during the premiere of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" in Los Angeles on April 19. We really weren't fans when she first debuted this look, but we have to admit that we've softened to it over time — maybe because it made such an impression!

The dress featured a thigh-high slit, a plunging neckline and a choker neck that cascaded even further behind her than her train. The singer-actress completed her look with matching heels.

Jennifer Lawrence made several public appearances in support of her film "Mother!" in September, and while many of her looks were fabulous (more on that to come!), the dress she wore during the Toronto Film Festival premiere of the thriller on Sept. 10 absolutely was not. J.Law's Dolce & Gabbana dress featured a corset top with oversized striped laces, a peplum waist and a sparkling midi-length skirt with a ruffled hem.

The sparkly jumpsuit that Michelle Monaghan donned during the CMA Awards was truly terrible.

We have to say, though: The woman has an amazing body, and we can't really blame her for wanting to show it off.
Naya Rivera wore an absolutely tragic Canadian tuxedo — a Marques Almeida top with poofy sleeves and loose-fitting GRLFRND jeans — during the Teen Choice Awards.

Sofia Vergara chose a cutesy midi-length Zuhair Murad dress with an embellished bodice and a full, pleated skirt for the SAG Awards. While we would've preferred this look on someone in her early 20s (like Sofia's "Modern Family" co-star Sarah Hyland), we didn't hate it either. We especially appreciated that the dress was a major departure from what the star normally wears on the red carpet. (Mermaid silhouette, anyone?)
Katy Perry donned one of the most daring looks of the Grammys: a long-sleeved turtleneck Tom Ford dress with a metallic top and an ombre feathered skirt. While the look was too loud for some fashion critics, we appreciated the extra effort to keep things fresh on music's biggest night.

Kerry Washington topped the best dressed list in a black-and-white Carolina Herrera confection with embroidered polka dots and intricately crafted poof sleeves during the Women Making History Awards in Los Angeles on Sept. 16.

Amber Rose donned probably her best red carpet look EVER — a long-sleeved black Yousef Aljasmi gown — during the MTV VMAs.

What happens when Little Bo Beep loses control in a Michaels craft store? We imagine something like the custom Lanotta Studio coat that Lady Gaga donned during the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her documentary, "Gaga: Five Feet Two," on Sept. 8. The superstar paired the bizarre top — which featured one houndstooth-print sleeve, multi-colored strips of fabric along the shoulders and collar and a jagged hemline — with shiny wide-leg pants that gave us major trash-bag vibes.

We're used to seeing Sarah Silverman in low-key looks, so we were thrilled when she showed up to the Toronto Film Festival premiere of "Battle of the Sexes" on Sept. 10 in a stunning Galia Lahav Haute Couture confection.

Something about the long-sleeved white halter dress by Mario Dice that Olivia Culpo wore during the ESPY Awards really left an impression. While we're not crazy about the loose-fitting sleeves or ankle-length hem, we just love the pearl strands that cascade from her chest to her elbows — so unique!
We were mesmerized by the sleeveless black-and-white print Michael Kors dress that Elizabeth Banks wore during the Met Gala. Does staring at this look for too long make anyone else feel dizzy?
