Arevik Simonyan, in charge of the Armenian design house Kivera Naynomis, was the creator of this impressive outfit Iveta Mukuchyan wore at her performance in Stockholm.

The entrant from Armenia dazzled the audience with an stunning body showing her toned legs. The piece has an intricate design resembling a spider net with crossed lines in black interspersed with transparencies. The right sleeve is made in black fabric, contrasting the rest of the design. Iveta also wore a black chiffon cloak that flowed with the multiple wind machines used on her performance, giving the overall look a fierce appeareance.

Dami Im stunned our jury panel, receiving top points from 4 out of its 6 members. During her performance, she blew everyone away with an elaborate gown in white and silver, created by Australian designer Steven Khalil.

The artist was resplendent in the bespoke gown, which boasts a fitted bodice with a dramatic off-the-shoulder sleeve - all studded with brilliant embellishments. The stunning dress also featured an open front, revealing Dami's legs, which were further elongated with a pair of sparkling silver stilettos.

Zoë hit high standards by making an amazingly appropiated choice with her gown. The look she wore on stage was a design of Eva Poleschinski, who used more than 40 meters of silk organza to create this romantic dress.

The heart neckline bodice features white embroidering and is studded with pearls and paillettes. The flared skirt has multiple layers, making this outfit a great choice for a fantasy fulfilled performance. Zoë completed her full look with a simple tiara made of crystals and pearls by Juvelan.

The Belgian delegation surprised the audience with a fresh, uptown funk performance. The outfits Laura Tesoro and her backup singers wore on stage were definitely selected to keep in line with this same feeling.

Laura chose a sparky white and silver blazer, in combination with high-waisted shorts made out of silver sequined fabric. The outfit was completed with a white V neck tank top full of silver sequins crossed all over the shirt, and white sneakers, creating a young, fresh look for her performance of her song What's The Pressure.

Bringing the Czech Republic to its first ever Eurovision Grand Final is not the only mission Gabriela Guncikova has accomplished with her participation in Stockholm. She is now nominated for this edition of the Shiri Maimon Awards, with her elegant evening gown signed by Czech designer Pavel Ivancic.

The sleeveless, closed neck bodice this design has ends in an structured peplum waist. Meanwhile, the skirt is made of a lightweight fabric and fully pleated into thin tablets. Gabriela combined her dress with a huge, white necklace which was almost camouflaged with the gown's neck.

Simplicity can also be great, and our next nominee proves this perfectly. Freddie may have wore an incredibly simple casual look, but he still managed to place Hungary into the top 10 at the jury voting round of the Shiri Maimon Award 2016.

The Hungarian entrant wore an asymmetrical white T-shirt with ripped jeans and brown accesories, such as his belt, shoes and bracelets. This combination created a simple but fierce look, totally appropiated for his performance on stage.

Justs also conquered our juries with his choice, true to the casual style he showed on his performances and promotion acts in Latvia and all over Europe.

Using black as his inspiration, this young artist created a bold outfit for his show, using an structured black leather jacket as the focal point of his overall look. Justs also wore a basic T-shirt, ripped black jeans and leather boots.

Ira Losco shined at the Eurovision Song Contest... yet again. And not only for her vocal abilities and the stunning performance she delivered on stage. Even we can all remember Ira on an amazing white jumpsuit on her 2002's Eurovision debut, the gown she chose to perform at the Globen Arena is equally impressive.

This dress was created in a lightweight black fabric, with loads of crystals and golden beading creating intricate draws covering her bosom and waist and intentionally pointing out the incipient pregnancy of the Maltese entrant. The skirt flowed with the wind, revealing Ira's long legs through a huge opening reaching her waist.

The Netherlands seems to have learnt from the mistakes leading Trijntje Oosterhuis to win the Barbara Dex award back in 2015. This year tables are turning as Douwe Bob now competes to be awarded as the best dressed act in Eurovision 2016.

Bob was looking like a young Johnny Cash impersonation wearing an elegant dark blue suit. He chose to wear a white shirt, strategically buttoned to show his brand new neck tattoo. The outfit was completed with a pair of shiny patent leather shoes in black.

In order to select the best possible outfit for her Eurovision performance, Jamala pulled out a competition for designers in the Ukrainian version of Vogue Magazine. After receiving dozens of designs, she decided to stick with a complex outfit created by the young Ukrainian designer Ivan Frolov.

The eventual winner of Eurovision 2016 wore a dark blue dress composed of wide leg pants embroidered with a floral pattern, and an asymmetric long shirt with sleeves ending in a huge cloak.
