If you think that hoodies and red carpet events simply don’t go together—well, think again! Hooded dresses are emerging as one of the biggest red carpet trends in Hollywood right now and here are five stars who put them on the map this winter.

Michaela Coel

Many of the most beautiful hooded dresses we’ve seen these days come in gentle shades of brown. Michaela Coel put a dazzling twist on this trend with this sparkly Ferragamo gown.

Simone Ashley

Speaking of dazzling hooded dresses, Simone Ashley gave us one of the sparkliest looks to date with this lilac sheer gown with tiny rhinestone embellishments by 16Arlington.

Addison Rae

Addison Rae was one of the first stars to embrace hooded dresses and she didn’t even have to wait for new collections by leading designers to get it done. The TikTok star wore a vintage Lily et Cie mini dress with a long black train to the CFDA Awards

Naomi Ackie

Naomi Ackie gave us several impressive red carpet looks while promoting the Whitney Houston biopic I Wanna Dance With Somebody, including this hooded gown by Atelier Versace.


Even Beyoncé isn’t immune to the charm of hooded designs, and she wore two beautiful Saint Laurent hooded dresses during her Paris Fashion Week after-party.
