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.
Issa Rae gave us major Cinderella vibes in a custom plunging, light-blue top combined with matching trousers by Vera Wang and Piaget jewelry.
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.
Felicity Huffman opted for a black, double-breasted set by Babaton for Aritzia made sexy with thin, layered necklaces and effortless waves.
Susan Kelechi Watson chose a feminine pink suit, a popular choice for celebs as of late, with silver jewelry, a fun clutch and nude sandals.
Tatiana Maslany was a beauty in chartreuse via a custom asymmetric jumpsuit by Christian Siriano, accessorized with edgy ear cuffs and embellished PVC pumps.
See what the rest of the stars wore to the ceremony.
