Happy 131st birthday, Coco Chanel! In honor of the French fashion designer and founder of the eponymous fashion house, today we're looking back on some of our absolute favorite Chanel red carpet looks. Celebrities like Blake Lively, Keira Knightley, and Diane Kruger have always been fans, but after looking through the many, many pictures of gorgeous Chanel dresses, it's safe to say most actresses have had their day wearing a design from the storied fashion house.

Known for her iconic tweed suits and classic little black dresses, Coco Chanel has created quite the legacy, now helmed by Karl Lagerfeld. It's probably no coincidence that some of our favorite Chanel designs in recent years are also some of the most unique we've seen on the red carpet. It's pretty rare to spot a Chanel dress without gorgeous embellishments and details.

From Blake Lively's Cannes stunner, to Rihanna's orange tweed suit, here are 15 of our favorite Chanel looks from the past year or so. Click through the gallery to see them all.
