The Country Music Awards took place in Nashville, Tennessee last night, and the industry's leading ladies - Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill all took to the red carpet. Our best dressed of the night was Taylor Swift in a rose embellished Jenny Packham gown - but Jessica Chastain's yellow lace dress at the opening night of play The Heiress also caught our eye.

Over the weekend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was the toast of this year's Gucci-sponsored 2012 LACMA Art + Film Gala, in a sleek green column dress from the fashion house's Spring 2013 collection. The British model partied with the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, while over in Germany, Jennifer Lopez and Eva Herzigova donned their most elegant evening gowns for the 21st UNESCO Charity Gala.

See all the latest red carpet looks from the weekend and check back tomorrow for our daily update. Rate your favourite look out of five, or let us know your best dressed on twitter @StylistMagazine.
