Red carpet score card: What designers dressed the most celebs this season?
Of course, let's not confuse plurality with winning (for lack of a better term). The way things end up on the red carpet has as much to do with politics as it does about what a star wants to wear, perhaps even more so. Not all designers approve of certain celebrities wearing their clothing. Involved are contracts (hello JLaw and Dior), and even permission to wear a brand. Deals are often struck between one brand and one starlet for one awards show. You may remember the recent Hayden Panettiere/Tom Ford drama when Panettiere wore a Ford gown that she wasn't lent, but purchased herself. In the insular world of fashion, this was considered a scandal.
Love it or leave it, what goes on the red carpet matters. This is why we love to track the biggest award shows for film and television - Golden Globes, Screen Actor's Guild Awards and the Academy Awards - and see which brands show up the most.
Note: Since stage and interview face time are most important, priority is given to actresses who are nominees, part of nominated films/television shows and presenters. (Our apologies to hosts and wives/partners.)
Click through to see, in no particular order, the top brands with this award season. And in the spirit of these awards shows, they're all winners. It's an honor to be nominated. And so on.
