Reese Witherspoon's yellow strapless sweetheart dress created big buzz after she bucked the gown trend and went for a sleek cocktail look for the Golden Globe Awards in 2007. With a divorce from Ryan Phillippe looming, Witherspoon debuted a hot new bod, sleek strands and glam red satin strappy heels as the ultimate revenge look. For JLo, wearing a low cut V-neck green Versace maxi dress to the 2000 Grammys took her from Puff Daddy's arm candy to It Girl overnight. The risqué gown proved to make such waves that it earned its own Wikipedia page. Jennifer Lawrence was a relatively unknown blonde beauty who went from invisible to in demand after donning a va-va-voom Jessica Rabbit-style red dress to the 2011 Oscars. The skintight Calvin Klein dress that JLaw wore created such intense fanfare that imitations still exist online.
