QUIZ: Name the Stars Who First Wore These Iconic Red Carpet Dresses

by Charles Manning

InStyle is celebrating their 25th anniversary and looking back at 25 of the most iconic dresses ever to walk the red carpet. ICONIC: 25 Dresses That Changed the Red Carpet, features supermodels Karen Elson, Amber Valetta, and Joan Smalls stepping into the shoes (and dresses) of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars — from J.Lo to Courtney Love to Cate Blanchett — and will appear in the magazine’s September issue, which hits newsstands this Friday, August 16. But before that happens, we thought we’d have a little fun and test your knowledge of red carpet history.
