Best Dressed: Comic-Con (That's Not an Oxymoron)

Comic-Con has been around since the '70s as a comic book and sci-fi convention for die hard fans. So there has always amazing fashion at Comic-Con--albeit more in the capes and Princess Leia buns vein. But over the years, it's expanded in range (now covering anime, video games, fantasy novels etc.,) and size. Today, as films based on comic books continue to become instant summer blockbusters, the convention has become a necessary promotional stop for the actors and actresses starring in said films. Since Comic-Con is not a fancy film festival, stars basically wear whatever they (or their stylists) want. Here are our favorite looks from San Diego. **All photos: Getty

Carey Mulligan always looks good on a red carpet, here in Roksanda Ilincic resort. Now if only she'd smile, we'd believe she felt as good as she looks.

Michael Kors surf-inspired resort collection has been getting a lot of love on the red carpet, and deservedly so. Can't miss Freida Pinto in this fluorescent number.

Stephen Moyer looks pretty happy and who can blame him? His wife, Anna Paquin, looks smoking hot in that red Antonio Berardi.

Jessica Biel looks cool and carefree in this cropped Christian Cota ensemble.

Actress Ana de la Reguera (she's in Cowboys & Aliens) made sure people would remember her name (or at least look it up) when she showed up in this sheer Gucci number.

Kate Beckinsale looks flirty in Tibi.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield don't need to do much to look super hot. A simple LBD and T-shirt and jeans and you can do no wrong.

Olivia Wilde is verging on a little funereal for Comic-Con in all black and lace but she still smolders in this Dolce & Gabbana.

Andrew Garfield even looks good in a child's Spiderman Halloween costume and a fanny pack. Or maybe I just think he does.
