As awards season draws to a close and we eagerly await the most prestigious ceremony of all, the Academy Awards, we can鈥檛 help but look back at the last year鈥檚 biggest fashion moments. From the Golden Globes red carpet to the Grammy Awards red carpet, we saw countless beautiful gowns, as well as some eye-catching pantsuits. The idea of taking sartorial pointers from the boys and suiting up (while maintaining a few feminine touches) has been a steadily rising trend over the past few years, and these 10 actresses, songstresses and models have really mastered the art of red carpet power dressing.

Amber Heard

1. Amber Heard: Choosing to match with husband Johnny Depp at the Los Angeles premiere of The Danish Girl, Heard stole the show in this jacquard satin tuxedo from Dolce & Gabbana. The understated makeup (we love a nude lip!) and messy bun help tone down the tux鈥檚 fierceness while the classic black heels add the perfect touch of femininity. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

Kate Moss

2. Kate Moss: If there鈥檚 one fashionista who knows how to pull off effortless glam, it鈥檚 supermodel Kate Moss. By pairing a simple black suit with an oversized gold bangle, strappy heels and see-thorough blouse, Moss showed off the perfect balance between sexy and powerful at Milan Fashion Week.

Carey Mulligan

3. Carey Mulligan: On those occasions when black seems too formal (especially in the summertime), turn to a lighter-colored suit with a bit of sheen. We love, love, love the bold statement Mulligan鈥檚 powder blue Marc Jacobs ensemble made at the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

Angelina Jolie

4. Angelina Jolie: Can Angie do any wrong? No, no she cannot. Jolie had fashionistas going wild when she showed up at the British Academy Film Awards in this perfectly fitted black suit, paired with killer heels and an undone silk bowtie for added cool. (Photo via Chris Jackson/Getty)

Emma Stone

5. Emma Stone: If a two- or three-piece suit feels too extravagant, take a cue from Emma Stone鈥檚 show-stopping Lanvin jumpsuit. Trading in a button-up and blazer for a gorgeous embroidered bodice and tying a beautiful sash around her waist, which almost looked like a train, Stone left us speechless at last year鈥檚 Golden Globe Awards.

Janelle Monae

6. Janelle Monae: Giving Carey Mulligan鈥檚 powder blue suit a run for its money is Janelle Monae鈥檚 Cristiano Burani two-piece. The songstress is known for her love of simple black tuxes, so when she arrived at the 2016 Billboard Power 100 Celebration wearing this unexpected pop of color, our jaws dropped. Bonus points for the fun abstract clutch, which is giving us major Piet Mondrian vibes. (Photo via Frederick M. Brown/Getty)


7. Rihanna: It鈥檚 not often we see Rihanna rocking pastels, and boy, is that a shame! Sure, she鈥檚 not technically wearing a pantsuit, but the Barbadian beauty was so stunning in this baby pink skirt suit, we simply had to include her. Just look at how sophisticated and glamorous she looks! (Photo via Imeh Akpanudosen/Getty)

Anna Kendrick

8. Anna Kendrick: For any occasion when being daring is the name of the game, pair a well-tailored suit with heels and nothing else. As Kendrick showed the world at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards: No shirt = No problem when you鈥檙e exuding this much confidence. (Photo via Larry Busacca/Getty)


9. Zendaya: As an ode to the late David Bowie, Zendaya arrived at this year鈥檚 GRAMMYs with a faux mullet (we鈥檙e still deciding how we feel about it) and a wide-legged, double-breasted suit from Dsquared2, which transported us right back to the 鈥80s鈥 and we loved every minute of it.

Charli XCX

10. Charli XCX: 鈥淕o Big or Go Home鈥 must be British beauty Charlotte Emma Aitchison鈥檚 mantra. The 23-year-old pop star stunned at the 2015 GRAMMY Awards with a white three-piece suit, pink bowtie, sparkly heels and oversized fur shawl. Something tells us she and Lady Gaga would be the best of friends. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
