The phrase "the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward" is especially true when it comes to fashion.
This week, a few of our favorite stars tried some bold styles on the red carpet and it paid off in spades. Victoria Beckham wore a turtleneck dress to a gala with stunning results, Rihanna wore head-to-toe pastels and still managed to look like a style icon and Jourdan Dunn found a fashion-forward dress that only she could pull off.
Check out the best-dressed celebrities of the week and let us know if you agree with our picks.

Here's VB making yet another case for the turtleneck. While the high neck and the midi-length offers a lot of fabric, the bare arms and cut-outs on the side show just the right amount of skin. This look is a monochromatic dream.

Rihanna always knows how to wear just the right amount of kitsch. This outfit could work on a 7-year-old girl and an 80-year-old grandma... and Rihanna. The pastel color palette is very sweet, but her high shoes, sleek ponytail and sophisticated makeup ensure that she looks age-appropriate.

We admit it, not everyone could pull off this short, fun number, but Dunn wears it well. The color-blocked, fringe dress is a nod to her cheeky side and showcases those amazing legs. If the frock were longer, it would have been too much; the short hemline is key.
It's rare that we see Woodley in such a sexy dress, but this is a nice surprise. Though a black dress could easily skew boring, this one has a lot of extra elements to keep things exciting. From the plunging neckline to the sky-high slit, this is an all-around win.

Sometimes it's nice to see a best-dressed look that isn't a red carpet ensemble. This pulled-together outfit would be perfect for a day at the office. While it is workplace appropriate, it's also fashion-forward. We love how she mixed black and navy and went for a patterned skirt to add a little bit of texture.
Clean, simple, chic: the trifecta of sophistication.
