Dresses and gowns are a common choice for awards shows, but when we see a lady in a fashion-forward suit, it's equally impactful, if not more so. 

For the 2018 Emmys, stylish ladies from Leslie Jones to Issa Rae rocked the borrowed-from-the-boys look via a modern pantsuit or a cool trouser ensemble we can't take our eyes off of. 

See the looks ahead, and, next time you're reaching for a dress, keep these stunning sets in mind. 

Jones was a vision in a cotton-candy-like, iridescent pink-and-blue pantsuit custom designed by Christian Siriano.

Evan Rachel Wood's twist on a classic black suit was a stunner to say the least. The long tux jacket added drama, while her floral hair adornment softened and romanticized the sleek custom Altuzarra ensemble.
