Chanel Iman, Julianne Hough, Khloe Kardashian, and Olivia Munn showed just how chic trousers can be, while Kerry Washington made the case for a sultry contrast, and Rachel McAdams was modern in artful lace. Here, the red carpet looks we couldn't get enough of this week.
Chanel Iman at the 2016 amfAR New York Gala: We love the idea of an outfit change after your ceremony and before your reception and nothing says fun glamour (or maximizes your dancing ability) like changing into chic trousers. Chanel Iman slipped into a strapless lace bustier and high-waisted pants, accented with a voluminous train for added drama, designed by none other than coveted designer Zuhair Murad. Her sleek ponytail is another element that will ensure you'll be prepared for the time of your life—as well as whipping it on the dance floor all night like Beyoncé.
Julianne Hough at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night: There's no rule that says your wedding attire can't be borrowed from the boys. Julianne Hough donned a sleek white menswear-inspired Paule Ka suit, topped with an Alexia Maria strapless blouse—a fresh and clean ensemble for your engagement party. You'll need nothing more than your natural beauty, a rosy lip, and easy hair: though the low-maintenance tailoring is the key to pulling this off flawlessly.
Khloe Kardashian at The Nice Guy: Clearly, white trousers were the week's biggest trend! Khloe Kardashian gave some flair to her white separates with a rose gold-hued House of CB Coryn Duster: polished and refined for your bachelorette or rehearsal dinner, yet totally on-trend. Like Chanel, Khloe also chose a smooth and glossy ponytail—the style is simultaneously fun and elegant, and simple enough to DIY.

Olivia Munn at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night: Ready for another pair of pants? Olivia Munn jumped on the bandwagon, giving a flash of ab in a crop top. Her bold lips injected a vibrant pop of color, while her loose side-swept waves were subtle and sexy. This look screamed easy elegance for the day-after brunch.
Kerry Washington at the 2016 NAACP Image Awards: Few do a classic gown with a twist better than Victoria Beckham. Kerry Washington opted for a white gown from the former Spice Girl-turned-designer, giving a spin to the timeless silhouette with a plunging neckline and contrast detailing. If you're looking to give a flash of décolletage for your big day, this is the way to do it. A delicate updo and minimal accessories will have all eyes on you and the gorgeous gown.
Rachel McAdams at the 31st Santa Barbara International Film Festival: A little lace is the right way to spend one of your last nights as a single woman! Rachel McAdams sizzled in a Jonathan Simkhai LWD and quite frankly, she's never looked hotter—the same way you should look and feel at your bachelorette party. Her hot pink lips added a bright pop, but she kept everything else pared-down. With a dress like this, you won't need much to look fantastic.
