The FROW-watching may have drawn to a close for yet another season, but that does not mean our beady fashion eyes are taking a breather from schleb style hunting. Oh no! So after careful consideration of the glammest stars out and out yesterday, we give you today's offering of our top Best Dressers. Let’s hop to it!

After her recent trip to Blighty for the Burberry show, Sarah Jessica Parker was back in New York City last night for the Ballet Fall Gala, where she’s on the board of directors, dahlink. And, oh, doesn’t she look magnificent? Taking a cue from the seventies trend that flooded the S/S ‘11 catwalks, SJP stepped out in a clingy floorsweeper of shimmering disco foil, complete with a sultry low back leading to a flowing train. As the President of Halston Heritage, naturallement her frock is straight from the brand’s stock, and doesn’t it remind you of the similar nude beauty she wore to the Met Ball earlier this year? We love how she’s topped off the look with a glittery Halston Heritage Sac bag, a smattering of jewels and those oh-so-glam bouncy curls. And to ward off the evening chill, SJP threw on a very Carrie-esque green blazer to make a sleek exit. Nice work!

Eva Mendes also cracked out a stunner for a swanky shindig celebrating music director Gustavo Dudamel and famed Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Florez (nah, us neither). Swathed in pale pink chiffon courtesy of Oscar de la Renta, the Cuban star swooshed onto the red carpet like a fairytale princess. Hm, dreamy...    

Next up, we turn our attentions to Sienna Miller who’s busying away as a juror at the British Film Festival held in, er, France. For the opening ceremony, she chose a sleek and chic ensemble consisting of a collarless cropped jacket and animal print ruched skirt  (straight from her Twenty8Twelve S/S’10 collection, natch), plus a pair of classic patent Louboutins. With those mega hoop earrings and bold red lippy, she’s nailing European suave perfectly, dontcha think? And this is one gal who knows how to mix it up. Because for the first screening earlier today, Sienna kept it casual in a very of-the-moment chunky knit paired with peachy trousers, dressed up by strappy sandals and those killer shades. Keep it coming, Ms Miller.

And finally, we give you Rihanna in a similarly easy chic outfit. The Barbadian beauty was schmoozing with Jean-Paul Gaultier at his headquarters in Paris yesterday (oooh, could a collaboration be in the pipeline?) and just like Sienna, she chose a nude jumper to keep cosy. But rather than a two-tone ensemble, Rihanna went full-on matchy-matchy by sporting it with skin-tight jodpur-esque skinnies, complementing pointed heels, and a touch of bridesmaid frou frou a-top her head. The jury’s still out on the head-to-toe beige effect, but then we don’t have a coif as bright as Ronald Mcdonald’s when presumably you don’t need much else. Not that that’s ever stopped our Ri-Ri, of course...
