The red carpet can be a daunting affair for even the most seasoned veteran award show attendee, which is why actresses by and large tend to opt for cute, if safe, sartorial options that will get them noticed, but spare them the Fashion Police judgement the next day. But when you’re simply the date of a famous person on the Oscars red carpet, since all eyes aren’t on you, in general, you can get away with a whole lot more. Case in point, these three ladies who chose some of the sexiest gowns we’ve seen all evening.
First, Matt Damon‘s wife Luciana Barroso arrived wearing a bold red gown with a faux-wrap effect that accented her waist, and featured a plunging neckline and embellished bodice. She also kicked off a big trend for the lesser-known dates of male celebrities on Oscar night, a revealing, thigh-exposing slit.
Kevin Hart‘s fiancee Eniko Parrish confirmed this burgeoning trend with her Grecian-inspired, pleated, black one-shoulder column gown. If the curve-skimming cut of the gown wasn’t sexy enough, the dress also featured the same thigh-high slit as Barroso that showed off the model’s lissome leg. She finished off her look with a smattering of diamonds, but it still wasn’t enough bling to totally distract form Hart’s rhinestone-laden ensemble.

And finally, Sly Stallone‘s wife Jennifer Flavin confirmed the Academy Awards date night trend, as the third lady who dared to bare some skin, arriving in silky black slip dress with a slightly cowled neckline and another gam-exposing slit. With fashion this eye-grabbing, these ladies’ more famous S.O.s better watch out. If they keep up this parade of on-point outfits, there might be two major red carpet stars in their relationship come next year’s award show season.
