When there's no dress code on the invite, guests are free to interpret the "party dress" with their own brand of styling. Such was the case at last night's iHeartRadio 20/20 Justin Timberlake album release party, where attendees like Nikki Reed, Jordin Sparks, and Emmy Rossum celebrated JT with their own take on eventwear. Nikki made a case for the classics, keeping it easy in skinny pants and a semi-sheer button-up, while Jordin worked a cool-girl angle in leather pants, sexy heels, and a moto-style jacket. As for Emmy, she adopted a more ladylike approach, arriving in a sweet floral-embellished Topshop sheath and white heels. For the rest of the party guests, just keep clicking — then be sure to cast your vote for the night's best dressed.

Alannah Hill is known for her girlie-girl approach to dressing. Think prom-style dresses, nipped-in waists, full skirts, embellished cardigans and enough ladylike accessories to turn the Mad Men girls a minty shade of green. However, after viewing Ms Hill's current Spring/Summer '12 look book, we think the appeal of her latest offering will extend beyond those with a '50s fashion fixation. Slinky sequinned party dresses, sexy pencil skirts and punchy printed pants speak so some of this season's strongest trends, albeit all of the above mentioned have a distinctly feminine twist.
