Ladies Of The Red Carpet: Pantsuits
It feels like every other Sunday evening in January we are cosying up with our favorite snacks to watch another awards show and we’re certainly not complaining. What’s better than an evening filled with the hottest looks, casual judging of the not so hot ones, musical performances, and tear-jerking speeches?!
While the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, and the Grammy’s all addressed important and political subjects, such as “Times Up” and #MeToo, there was another common theme uniting the attending women. Power suits in all shapes, patterns, and styles filled the red carpets.
Ladies are officially suiting up in 2018 and we are big fans.
That being said, we thought it was only right to do a round-up of our favorite female suits from the most recent awards shows and we can’t wait to use these as inspiration for your next custom suit.
The Golden Globes
The Golden Globes is the first inaugural awards show of the year, allowing the attendees to start the season off with a bang. In solidarity with the Times Up movement, the Hollywood elite flooded the red carpets in black outfits. Sticking to this timeless color did not restrict or inhibit any personal style and flair – and there were a few particular ladies that took our breath away. In fact, these ladies took the idea of “wearing the trousers” quite literally.
These are our 3 favorite female suits from the 2018 Golden Globes:
Ryan Michelle Bathe
In a stunning black tuxedo, Ryan Michelle Bathe was certainly turning heads as she walked down the red carpet with her husband Sterling K Brown. The two found themselves on pretty much every best-dressed couple list and we’d have to agree.

Nominee of the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series, Claire Foy broke the internet when she wore a gorgeous double-breasted suit with a plunging neckline and flared pant. Twitter couldn’t get enough of The Crown actress and we’re right there with them.
Arriving as Norman Lear’s passenger on a motorized scooter, Rita Moreno’s outfit certainly didn’t take the back seat. The 86 year old One Day at a Time actress looked utterly badass in leather. Wearing a structured and gold-studded leather jacket with leather pants and tie, Rita Moreno should have been awarded the Golden Globe in style.
Most of the ladies opted for a traditional gown at this year’s SAG awards. However, there was one lady who rocked a pant look and we cannot get enough of how she interpreted the formal dress code.
Black-ish star, Yara Shahidi looked absolutely stunning in a black strapless pantsuit with a cascading bustle. Exquisitely fitted, Yara’s custom Ralph Lauren pantsuit not only looked flawless but dare we say it looked pretty comfortable too.

The Grammy Awards
This past weekend’s show was full of ladies wearing suits. From elevated banker suits to sequins and floor-grazing blazers, the women of the Grammys were certainly bold in their selections.
Stunning in Balmain, Anna Kendrick wore a grey check suit, reminiscent of a classic banker suit, but with tons of sex appeal. Under her cropped suit jacket, Kendrick wore a black lace bustier and paired her ankle grazing trousers with baby pink stilettos.
Both of Eve’s costume changes during the night involved gorgeous suit separates. She went shirtless under her blazers in both cases. The first suit was a stunning sequined Naeem Khan black and silver striped number with wide legged trousers. Her second outfit was a red sequined blazer with a black satin lapel. She paired the jacket with long black satin palazzo pants and a cascading, web-like choker.
While not technically a pantsuit, we couldn’t resist calling out Andra Day’s killer red carpet look. The stunning singer stepped out in a daring lilac and red detailed floor-length blazer with a slit showing off her leg that seemed to go on for days. Double breasted and perfectly tailored, this look may be a favorite of the evening.
While this doesn’t even scratch the surface of how many amazing looks we saw on the women of the awards shows this month, these are a few of our faves.
We can’t wait to see what the rest of the awards shows in 2018 bring in terms of fashion. We’re keeping our eyes on the ladies in customized suits, striking pants and bold blazers for sure.
