The third annual InStyle Awards were on Monday night - and the red carpet style was definitely something.

After three years, it's already become a hot event attracting 'it' girls Elle Fanning and Zendaya, as well as one of Selena Gomez's first appearances since revealing she had a kidney transplant. The guestlist is a coup - the dress code, on the other hand, was frankly confusing.

The former Destiny's Child singer mixed tulle, lace and disc sequin by Georges Chakras with a pair of thigh high red leather boots.

She just went for it. Full gown. You kind of have to admire that.

A Jacquemus LBD, slicked back bun and heels with a kitschy twist? Selena wins best dressed on the night,

The wig. The dress. The shoes. At least she looks happy.

Kate Bosworth

The normally impeccably dressed KB went full '80s with her Dynasty-inspired green sequin gown and seems a little scared.

Cindy Crawford

This legendary supermodel might be the only one still abiding by less is more.

Demi Lovato

The singer wore a satin lilac maxi dress with ruched detailing. With a double white buckle belt. It speaks for itself.

January Jones

January certainly looks very shiny in her satin jumpsuit, but also happy...we guess?
