Who would've guessed that 2017 would mark the return of shoulder pads? But as huge stars like Meryl Streep, Sarah Paulson and newcomer Chrissy Metz prove, the glam '80s fashion can certainly feel modern.

The off-the-shoulder look dominated 2016 — and doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

Whether around the waist, like Zoe Saldana and Felicity Jones, or tied around the neck, like Michelle Williams, bows look like they'll be big in 2017.

These not-so-mellow yellows made big statements on the red carpet, no matter their shape or silhouette.

... and sprouted flowers and florals galore.

These stars know that small details can make all the difference, and that's definitely true when it comes to necklines. Whether it's Regina King's asymmetrical strapless top or Felicity Jones' cartoon-like ruffles, these gowns were showstoppers.
