It's official: Pink was the color of the night. Whether voluminous or form-fitting, ruffled or sleek, these hot pink numbers made real statements.
The new tuxedo
Who wears the pants? Whoever wants to! (The same rule applies to ball gown skirts, as "Pose" star Billy Porter proved with his look.) These sleek and inventive styles gave a new twist to the classic menswear look, whether it was created with glittery fabric or turned into a velvet two-piece.
You don't have to be a superhero to rock a cape, as these three leading ladies prove, but you can certainly look like one.
Colorful velvet blazers
Let's hear it for men who have fun with fashion. When it comes to fabric, rich and luxurious velvet was a clear winner, and any color was up for grabs.
Ice cream hues
These pastel colors are as sweet as sugar. Pastel hues in mint green, icy blue and pale lavender added a soft and pretty touch.
Plunging necklines will always have their place on the red carpet, but there's something refreshing about a mock turtleneck or high neckline. These stars proved a conservative look can still be sexy.
When it came to ruffles, there was one philosophy: More is more. This romantic and bold style was especially popular in shades of pink, red and orange.
Sleek and chic hairstyles
Purposely messy updos have had their time; the stars now seem to favor a sleeker look. These pulled-back styles allow their gowns (and, let's be honest, their over-the-top jewelry) to take center stage.
