Ever since Renee Zellweger paired with Carolina Herrera, pockets and evening dresses have become a style staple. Amy Adams proudly wore her pockets on the Oscar red carpet last year, and on the runways, Oscar de la Renta and even Lanvin had pockets on their girls.

Or you can follow your mom's lead and pretend this is the only cool thing you'll ever get to do - a lie, for sure, but a fun one on the day when you get to wake up, have your hair done, have your nails done, have your shoes cost way too much on purpose, and (hopefully) have a really good party, then really good sex.
