Hilary Duff Teaches Petite Women An Important Lesson On Best-Dressed List

Calling all women 5'4" and under!

It looks like Lizzie McGuire is all grown up!

On this week's best-dressed list, "Younger" star Hilary Duff stepped out in a sultry red dress that we couldn't get enough of. Not only was the color stunning, but it was a great example of how petite women can get away with a longer hemline.

But there were other stars who taught us style lessons, too. Jessica Biel showed us that orange and black is a combo that shouldn't be ignored beyond Halloween, Amber Valletta made a case for menswear and Jennifer Lopez proved that 'tis the season for white.

Check out our favorite looks of the week and let us know if you agree with our picks.

Petite women can wear long hemlines.

Hilary Duff in Michael Kors and Alexander McQueen: Let this serve as a lesson to all petite women that you can wear long coats and dresses that hit below the knee. The trick is to pick a nude, strappy shoe to help elongate your legs.
Go sleek or go home.

Khloe Kardashian in Prabal Gurung: The lace panels, slicked back hair and plunging neckline are making this a look for the books.
Wear color in the winter.

Jordana Brewster in Peter Pilotto: Just because it's January doesn't mean color shouldn't make it onto the red carpet. Here, Brewster really livened up the Disney/ABC 2016 Winter Tour in this gorgeous (and fun!) multi-colored dress.
Suiting is sexy.

Amber Valletta in Stella McCartney: A perfectly tailored black suit, with nothing underneath, never fails. Think of it as an equivalent to a little black dress.
Don't be afraid to change it up.

Jennifer Lopez in Roland Mouret: If Jennifer Lopez hasn't already proved that she can wear anything, this look should do it. Her white dress is a stark contrast to the vibrant yellow number she wore to the Golden Globes, but equally stunning.
Orange and black is a great color combo.

Jessica Biel in Dolce & Gabbana: There is a case to be made for orange and black -- when done properly, it can be extremely chic. The white in Biel's outfit prevents this dress from looking costumey, while the simple styling is also contributing to its success.
Red looks great on brunettes.

Olga Kurylenko in Dolce & Gabbana: This is about as classic D&G as you can get, but we're not complaining. The rich red colors on her dress are a beautiful contrast to her dark hair, and those strappy shoes help to lengthen her legs, which might otherwise be shorten because of that midi hemline.
Long black dresses always make a statement.

Heidi Klum in Victoria Beckham: Sleek and sexy is the name of the game with this black dress. We love how the sleeveless gown is balanced out by the long hemline.
