Dakota Johnson was a vision in a classic plunge-front gown, Gabrielle Union made us all blush in a number in the pastel hue, and Amy Adams defined "chic" in a custom-made column design. Here, the red-carpet looks that inspired us this week.

Dakota Johnson at the Fifty Shades of Grey London Premiere: If you're looking for a classic wedding dress, but want a slight sultry flair, take a cue from Dakota, whose plunging front added a touch of sexiness to her otherwise ethereal gown. Her Saint Laurent was completed with delicate jewelry from Sidney Garber, a Roger Vivier clutch, and a berry-hued lip for a pop of color.

Gabrielle Union at the NAACP Image Awards: A crisscross neckline, cutout sides, and charming full-skirt made for one seriously gorgeous look. Gabrielle's dazzling Gauri & Nainika gown was the epitome of power and beauty. Want a similar look for your ceremony? Keep her sleek ponytail, but opt for a dewy, fresh face instead of her smoky eye and mulberry-hued lips — you'll want to let a dress like this play centerstage.

Amy Adams at the 2015 BAFTAs: The Big Eyes actress looked exquisite in a white custom-made cap sleeve column gown from Lanvin — it was effortlessly simple save for its crystal-adorned waist and waist-cinching belt. This would work for the style-savvy bride who wants to look elegant, while simultaneously maintaining a sense of comfort.
