The Once Upon a Time actress has always been a fashion risk-taker. Ginnifer Goodwin's risky behavior usually pays off with the star routinely stunning on and off the red carpet. That's not to say she doesn't have her go-to designers like Monique Lhuillier, Preen, and Jonathan Saunders or her off-key moments, but Ginnifer seems to have an uncanny eye for the unique along with a real knack for styling.
Take the gorgeous Gucci creation she wore to the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala just last month. Sure the event was sponsored by the fashion house, but Ginnifer still managed to pick one of the more spectacular Fall 2012 pieces complete with semi-sheer blouse and green feathered skirt. The star also stood out at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards in late September. Her orange floral embroidered Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 gown was expertly styled with both Rona Pfeiffer and Graziela jewels along with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and coordinating Christian Louboutin Bis Un Bout pumps.

Ginnifer has a long history of impressing on the red carpet. She attended the Children Awaiting Parents event in February 2011 in West Hollywood decked out in a sparkling Monique Lhuillier dress and graphic red Raphael Young Habaki wedges. Topshop Unique was the surprising source of Ginnifer's green silk twist front long sleeve gown with cut-out details at the 2011 Met Gala. A statement necklace, a navy Kotur clutch, and Aperlai Karine sandals wrapped up the unexpected look.

At the Los Angeles premiere of Something Borrowed the very next day, Ginnifer somehow made a bandage dress look fashion-forward. Her Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2011 houndstooth creation was teamed with a golden Kotur clutch and Camilla Skovgaard sandals. This perfectly pink Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2012 Margot lantern sleeve dress was her bold choice for the People's Choice Awards 2012 in January. Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry, a Kzeniya black envelope clutch, and Jimmy Choo Kyrle ankle boots all served as accessories.

Jonathan Saunders was behind the Pre-Fall 2012 mustard-colored silk gazar dress Ginnifer sported for the PaleyFest 2012 celebration of Once Upon a Time in March. A gold belt, Bulgari gems, and Giuseppe Zanotti cork pumps completed the look. When it came time for this year's Met Gala, Ginnifer once again made an impact in Monique Lhuillier. Her Fall 2012 tangerine silk chiffon cap sleeve gown included an elaborately embroidered neckline and was complemented by H. Stern jewels as well as silver Brian Atwood pumps.
It was another Monique Lhuillier for the Young Hollywood Awards in June. Her delicate white lace Resort 2013 dress was accented with a black Edie Parker clutch and spiked Christian Louboutin heels. Ginnifer was certainly a lady in red a month later at Entertainment Weekly's 6th Annual Comic-Con Celebration in San Diego thanks to this scalloped Valentino Fall 2012 dress. A pair of matching Christian Louboutin pointed-toe spiked pumps rounded out the look.
Ginnifer is definitely a true style star.
