If you're in a style rut, just take a gander at the lovely ladies and gents that made our best-dressed list this week.

Not only can these Hollywood stars inspire you, but they can teach you a thing or two. Naomie Harris showed us that quirky color combos totally work, Nikki Reed wowed in a LWD and Joan Smalls proved that a slit and a pair of heels can instantly add inches to your frame.

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

  • A jumpsuit doesn't need to look like a jumpsuit.

    Emily Blunt in Elisabetta Franchi: On first glance, it appears as though Blunt is wearing a top and pants, but she's actually wearing a jumpsuit. Many women, especially petite ladies, are worried that jumpsuits can overwhelm a small frame. But picking one that is tailored -- and looks like two separate pieces -- ensures that it doesn't wear you.
  • Pair non-traditional colors.

    Naomie Harris in Peter Pilotto: Orange, blue and black aren't usually colors that we see together... and we're not sure why. Harris looks amazing at the European premiere of "Entourage," and stands out in a sea of neutrals. Though there's a lot going on with the print, asymmetrical hem and neckline, the actress kept her hair, makeup and accessories minimal so her dress could shine.
  • Opt for navy instead of black.

    Emily Ratajkowski in Marc Jacobs: The rich blue hue, that halter neckline and the pretty embellishments on the side of her gown make for one stunning look.
  • A slit can go a long way.

    Joan Smalls in Givenchy: A long gown with long sleeves and a high neckline doesn't exactly scream sexy, but Smalls' slit made it one of the most sultry looks at the Tony Awards. Not only does the slit break up the patterned dress, but it makes the model look even taller than she is.
  • Color-coordinating can be a good thing.

    Dao-Yi Chow, Grace Mahary and Maxwell Osborne: It's no surprise that Chow and Osborne, designers of CFDA-winning label Public School, look dapper as ever (we love their patent leather shoes and pocket squares). But most of our attention is focused on the model in the middle. Mahary looks sleek and put together in this black frock, and her red lipstick is really sealing the deal.
  • Spice up your LWD.

    Nikki Reed in Kaufmanfranco: A little white dress is to summer what an LBD is to winter. Though the color is refreshing this time of year, a LWD can easily look boring. But not this one. The little cut-out, a-line skirt and halter neckline are playful and sexy. We also love her metallic pumps.
