Models Took Over This Week's Best-Dressed List

08/29/2014 07:00 am ET

It should have been all about musicians and actors with the VMAs and the Emmys this week, but all we could talk about were models.

Though tons of stars stepped out looking drop dead gorgeous, the ladies who rule the catwalk also ruled the best-dressed list. Heidi Klum sizzled in a short and shiny number, Joan Smalls proved that she can wear just about anything and Liya Kebede showed us the perfect gown to transition from summer to fall.

Check out our favorite outfits of the week and let us know if you agree with our picks.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum is on a roll this week. While she went for a long, coral number at the Emmys, she went short and sultry for a red carpet event later in the week. Her simple, strapless metallic dress and matching shoes were the ideal canvas to show off the model's natural beauty.

Liya Kebede in Alberta Ferretti

This is a lot of dress, but thankfully, the 5'10" model has the height to carry it off. Kebede was smart to belt the mock-feathered bodice to define her waist so she didn't get lost in the fabric. And the minimal makeup and tousled hair is exactly what this look called for -- anything else would have been overwhelming.

Joan Smalls in J. Mendel

Smalls was made to wear this dress. The cut-outs highlight her narrowest feature and her small bust allows her to get away with such a plunging neckline without looking too exposed.

Jaimie Alexander

The way this knee-length white dress falls on the actress is so beautiful. The keyhole neckline balanced out the roomy shift shape, while her black pumps are making her look long and lean. This is such an easy, breezy ensemble.

Emma Stone in Valentino

If you were able to make it past her new, short 'do, her dark green gown was pretty spectacular, too. Stone was floating across the red carpet in her tulle gown, which further complemented her fiery locks. It is the perfect balance between pretty and sexy.

Moran Atias in Valentino

Red seems to be the color of the season -- and we couldn't be happier about it. The "Third Person" star wore a plain red dress, but the studded leather collar definitely amped up the outfit. Her red shoes made this a monochromatic look, which created a nice, clean line. And did we mention that the dress has pockets? We think we're in love.
