Minka‘s done it. Olivia and Rachel, too. But is wearing pants to a red carpet event a do or a don’t?

Obviously it’s not a new trend — hello, Tilda Swinton! — but lately it’s seeming more mainstream. Cameron Diaz was the latest star to try the look, wearing a ’70s-inspired pantsuit designed by pal Stella McCartney to the What to Expect When You’re Expecting premiere in London Tuesday night.

Kristen Stewart followed suit Wednesday, choosing patterned Balenciaga pants to complement her black blazer, Juicy Couture top, Cartier bracelet and heels while walking the carpet in Cannes.

What do you think? Are fancy pants OK for the carpet? Or do you prefer to see your favorite stars in dresses? Vote in our poll below!
