The red carpet is one of the most interesting places where fashion gets a chance to shine, outside of the catwalk, of course. Both celebs and fashion designers see this as a chance to get some exposure, and it's a dangerous game of risk and reward. Try to get too adventurous and crazy, and you'll be crucified by the press. On the other hand, if you try to play it safe you might be lambasted for going the easy/boring route. Celebs must strive for that delicate balance between sexy and sophisticated, wild and refined.
It's easy for us to look on from the sidelines and judge what these celebs wear. Sometimes those of us with less fashion knowledge don't really understand why certain dresses are seen as fashion disasters and others are seen as works of genius. But generally speaking, even the most basic fashion observer can spot the most horrible decisions on the red carpet. Then again, if you're a true fashionista, you know the rules of fashion, and you can see when they're broken, bent, or followed to a tee. Think you've got what it takes?
