2022 Red Carpet Dresses Worn By Celebs That Are Absolutely Bridal-Worthy

A red carpet affair! It's where cameras follow celebrities to document their fashion choices, where photo calls are made, and where quick queries are answered. In award shows such as Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Grammy Awards, and British Academy Film Awards, while the awards are held inside, much of the hype and excitement is generated outside. On the outside, journalists are taking photos and asking questions about the celebs and their outfits. Attending red carpet events full of paparazzi, celebrities and designers will always have to bring their fashion A-game.
A-listers walked the red carpet in their most daring, extravagantly decorated, expensive outfits, complete with some very spectacular jewelry to keep them dazzling all night.
We look at the most stunning celebrity dresses, gowns, and suits, from Sydney Sweeney and Alexandra Daddario to Jennifer Lopez and Kristen Stewart.
