This is hardly the accessory associated with cartoon superheroes and medieval kings–with elegant draping and fluid materials, capes went couture at the 2014 Academy Awards. The luxurious look gave four of our favorite Hollywood ladies an even more romantic aesthetic on their big night out. Three beauties in blush, Camila Alves in a Gabriela Cadena over the shoulder caped confection, Kate Hudson wearing a structured Atelier Versace dress, and Penelope Cruz in a half-caped Giambattista Valli number, were show stoppers on the Oscars red carpet. Christina Hendricks took a sultrier approach to the cape trend later that night. She attended the Vanity Fair and Elton John’s Academy Awards after parties in a L’Wren Scott LBD paired with a dramatic chiffon cape draped over her shoulders, displaying another way to style the look.
