The red carpet legend that is Regina King has been delivering one fashion win after the next this (digital) red carpet season. First, it was a sleek custom Louis Vuitton for the Golden Globes, then a dramatic Atelier Versace sequin sheath with dramatic ruffled shoulders for the Critic's Choice Awards, and a high-low, terracotta-toned Oscar de la Renta for the NAACP Awards. But then there was this epic moment in Christopher John Rogers last night for the CDGA Awards, celebrating excellence in costume design, where King was a presenter.

Stars up the style ante for this event given its focus on fashion. As King noted on her Instagram account, "Costumes play such a big part in helping to shape a character." King, who never disappoints on the carpet, sported a bright orange, sleek gown and accessorized with Bulgari jewels. On his account, Christopher John Rogers described the design from his Collection 007 as a "snatched Habanero utility twill column with pleated train."

Also unique about this look: the ability to shop it ASAP, via Saks Fifth Avenue and Net-a-Porter. Red carpet looks are typically custom, created by designers specifically for the celebrity and the event in question. Designers switching up the fashion calendar in the wake of the pandemic lockdowns has brought about production changeups, and pieces have been trickling into stores at a different pace. One benefit for fashion lovers worldwide (or so it seems): you can now shop looks worn by the red carpet's best dressed—a la King's epic orange gown—online and in-stores.
