We're all for a pretty cocktail dress or a dazzling red carpet gown, but sometimes a little change is good. Case in point: Stylish stars like Jessica Alba, Kate UptonLaetitia Casta and Rita Orarecently went against the grain and stepped out in bold black-and-white tuxedo-inspired ensembles.

Nary a hemline in the house, these fashion-forward ladies borrowed from the boys, clad in blazers, button-down blouses and trousers (ranging from shiny and chic to slouchy and high-waisted) for maximum impact.

While each star's interpretation of the formal look varied according to her personal style, all agreed on one thing: accessories! Clutches and high heels were a must to keep this iconic look as ladylike as possible.

So, tell us! Would you rock the tuxedo look for a formal occasion?
