"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman," Coco Chanel said. Whether you opt for a knee-length dress or floor-length gown, the real factor in being "Best Dressed" is how you wear the dress. Confidence shines through with each of these women. Velvet and satin are both rich fabrics and a perfect option for winter events. Remember to keep the accessories simple so the real focus will be on your dress.
