It’s official. 2016 is the Year of the Cape. It’s empowering, it’s glam, and we bet it makes twirling really REALLY fun. What makes us so cape-confident? Because a lot of ladies rocked the cape dress at the 2016 Golden Globes.

Each celeb had their own unique way of wearing a cape, depending on the style and cut and color of their dress, and everyone looked stunning. Take a look and prepare to make some major heart-eyes.

Cate Blanchett:

We’re no fashion experts, but Cate Blanchett’s dress looks like blush-pink unicorn hair, and it’s taking our breath away.

Emilia Clarke:

I would not expect anything less epically beautiful from the Queen of Dragons herself (and it’s kinda Morticia Addams-y too? Which we LOVE).

Taraji P. Henson:

Cookie, I mean, Taraji looks regal AF — pretty sure her character on Empire would full-heartedly approve of this dazzling gown.

Jada Pinkett Smith:

The teal! The matching open-toed shoes! The shimmery belt! Oh, Jada Pinkett Smith, we bow down.

Jennifer Lopez:

Mustard yellow is always a ~tricky~ color to pull off, but Jennifer Lopez nails it, accenting it with sparkling heels, diamond necklace, and that deep red lipstick.

Saoirse Ronan:

Saoirse Ronan, you angel human. The only thing missing from this ensemble is a floating halo.

Regina King:

If anyone can pull off a golden-sequin gown with a translucent cape, it’s Regina King. We applaud.
