The Oscars are the crème de la crème of award shows,and high-octane glamour is a given from Hollywood’s biggest stars. The elegant flood of gowns, accessories, and diamonds (oh, the diamonds!) on the red carpet unfailingly serve as inspiration for our own dressed up moments, from cocktail parties to weddings or galas. With a roster of nominees who tend to go daring with their looks—Margot Robbie, Greta Gerwig, and Saoirse Ronan come to mind—we’re for eschewing traditional formalwear this season in favor of unexpected ensembles with dramatic flair. Think bold suiting, unconventional silhouettes, playful textures, even a cape as a finishing detail—it doesn’t get more theatrical than that. Turn heads at your next event with our edit ahead.

An asymmetric lamé dress is the epitome of sexy-chic. The fluttering capelet tempers risqué side cutouts. A contrasting bauble adds interest.
