Last night's Directors Guild Awards played host to yet another round of slick red-carpet cocktail attire. While not quite the stuff of black-tie affairs, our two favourite looks certainly held enough intrigue to supply ample (sleeveless) styling inspiration. Jennifer Garner opted for an Antonio Berardi LWD that, once again, proved her ability to find the balance in sexy cuts and glamorous finishes. And, for us, the combination of body-conscious silhouette, embellished top, and a crisp white hue made this the kind of monochromatic outfit that never veers on boring. To counter the sleeveless shift, she accessorised with muted metallic pieces, namely a Salvatore Ferragamo box clutch and matching satin peep-toe pumps; then added just a hint of sparkle via Cartier jewels. Jennifer's look is the perfect solution to your "how to wear white at night" question. This award season's wild-card styler, Anne Hathaway, went for a punchier printed look, donning a sleeveless pink-and-blue beaded Valentino dress with navy blue Casadei vegan heels. Because the dress offered up a serious textual statement, the Les Misérables actress didn't do much else in the way of add-ons. Her diamond studs, tennis bracelet, and wedding ring served as the outfit's only accents, and in this case, it totally worked. Anne's playful choice is the kind of dress you should wear on the next night out with the girls — it's fun, festive, but doesn't feel overdone in the least. Which look would you wear?
