Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren
Why did Lupita wear a cape? Because she has superhero brains, superhero personality, superhero acting skills, superhero looks, and superhero ability to wear a cape without looking too literally like a superhero. She saved the day.

Kerry Washington in Balenciaga
Kerry did the opposite of hiding her baby bump on the red carpet. She wrapped it in a silver satin package and framed it with a set of coordinating stage drapes, as if to say, "World, Olivia Pope is about to spawn. Prepare the way."
