Hollywood Pulls Off Some Tricky Trends On This Week's Best Dressed List

We'll admit it: Some of our favorite fashion trends are next to impossible to pull off. How are you supposed to wear a cape without looking like a superhero? And how do you get away with thigh-high boots without looking like an extra in "Pretty Woman"?

Have no fear because this week, Hollywood took some of the trickiest trends and executed them perfectly. Olivia Palermo managed to look like a total babe in a cape, while Nicola Peltz worked it in a bright orange dress -- apparently orange really is the new black.

Check out the best-dressed stars of the week and let us know if you agree with our choices!

Olivia Palermo in Burberry

It's all about capes this fall. And here, Palermo is showing us the perfect way to wear this cold weather trend in summer. She has expertly paired her topper with thigh-high boots, short shorts and a pair of mirrored sunnies to make it appropriate for the end of July. A bonus: If she throws on a pair of jeans, this look could easily work in September. The key to wearing a cape is to treat it the same way you would a jacket.

Nicola Peltz in Prada

Orange is a tricky color to wear (much like nude and yellow), as you need to find the right shade and the right silhouette to have success. And Peltz has done just that. The plunging neckline and exposed back balance out the long hemline, while the flowy skirt makes it look like she's floating. This newcomer is one to watch.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict in Ellery

It's so nice to see a different shape on the red carpet. The gown, with the deep-V neckline and bell-sleeves, is very trendy yet still suits the mature actress. Though a white frock is a classic, the voluminous sleeves ensure that she stands out from the crowd.

Fan Bingbing in Chictopia

This dress could have gone wrong in so many ways, but it didn't. The structured shoulders balance out the spacious skirt, while the sophisticated silhouette and print makes the bow appear fashion-forward, not childish. This looks like an outfit that we would see during Paris Fashion Week -- avant-garde and striking.

Chloe Moretz in Valentino

Moretz is certainly a lady in red. Her dress is elegant and effortless, but it's still suitable for her young age with the Peter Pan collar. The macramé lace is also a nice departure from other fabrics we normally see. A+, Chloe!

Zoe Saldana in Monique Lhuillier

Saldana's a fashionista through and through. We love how she went with a tight-fighting dress despite her growing belly. The sheer sleeve inserts give the dress a little something extra, as do those sky-high heels.
