Yesterday, the cast of Oceans 8 commenced its promotional tour, and one photocall in, it's lining up to be one of the most stylish events in film history. That might sound hyperbolic, but just wait until you see the pictures. At the New York photocall at the Met, the women wore impeccable outfits, looking like our trend report come to life.
Sarah Paulson wore a polka-dot midi skirt with a black ruffled blouse. Then came the jumpsuits: Awkwafina wore a black high-necked suit with a cutout at the stomach, while Sandra Bullock wore a grassy green one-shoulder Elie Saab number. Anne Hathaway wore head-to-toe white in a pair of wide-leg trousers with a matching zip-front top. And Mindy Kaling proved a black dress is never boring, wearing a Stella McCartney robe-style dress with beaded embellishment.

However, the one outfit that really stood out for me was Cate Blanchett's purple suede Salvatore Ferragamo trouser suit, with a white blouse with statement cuffs, red clashing high heel shoes and brash gold jewellery. In a word it's groovy. As the The Daily Mail observed, this is in fact Austin Powers's signature look. I never thought I'd say this, but his outfit is something I'd actually like to buy for myself right now. Colourful, luxurious trouser suits are having a moment, especially thanks to the iconic emboidered velvet Chloé suit that was a big street style hit at fashion week.
