Seemingly overnight, Hollywood has crowned Roksanda Ilincic queen of the red carpet. Shailene Woodley, Jessica Paré, Anne Hathaway, and a whole bevy of stylish stars have been photographed wearing the designer's signature, dimensional silhouettes.
Monumentalism, which has been Ilincic's bread and butter since she launched her label back in 2003, has skyrocketed in popularity this season — and with good reason. Her ultra-modern, sculptural shapes, punchy color schemes (we can't get enough of that neon orange!), and cool PVC embellishments are a breath of fresh air among the sea of standard, billowy gowns and body-cons we've grown accustomed to seeing. The expression "go big or go home" comes to mind. And, clearly, these daring designs have paid off in spades.

And, no stranger to celebrity press, the London-based label has been a favorite of the duchess of Cambridge's for years. But, Ilincic's spring, pre-fall, and fall '14 collections are far and away some of the designer's best yet. Sure, her conceptual silhouettes aren't for everyone, but there's definitely a loyal following of ladies who appreciate and admire the sophisticated eccentricity of Ilincic's clothes — including the six celebs ahead and this editor, too.

Can we all agree that Anne Hathaway is glowing in this dress? She looks amazing, and we'll argue our point for anyone who says otherwise. The bright colorblock plays nicely against her pale complexion, and it's a nice departure from Hathaway's usually subtler palette.

Cate Blanchett can really do no wrong in our books, sartorially or otherwise. So, we're thrilled to see the leading lady (and style goddess) don this eccentric fall '14 frock. Way to be ahead of the pack, as usual, Cate.
