When we first got word that  Amal Clooney was set to make an appearance on the 72nd annual Golden Globes Awards red carpet, we knew it would be a moment in time. Amal has stunned every step of the way since she's been in George Clooney's life, from her impeccable off-duty style to her stunning fashion choices for her destination wedding, so it's no surprise that she really turned it out for her first award show red carpet.

Before we even laid eyes on Amal's full look, which consisted of a gorgeous black one-shoulder Christian Dior Haute Couture gown with cutouts, we spotted her white-hot opera-length gloves—which resulted in cheers heard throughout the InStyle office.

Amal's gloves made such a memorable statement, they are without a doubt the most buzzed-about accessory of the night (is it too early to say year?)—so much so that they're likely to have the same exact affect as Kate Middleton's lace long-sleeve Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress: aka, everyone will try to recreate the look.

To help you navigate your way around incorporating opera-length gloves into your wardrobe, we shopped out styles suit for every occasion. If you have a dressy event on your calendar, take a style risk à la Amal and go for a silk or lace pair.

If you're looking to slide on a pair today (we understand!), try a warm-weather glove crafted of a smooth buttery leather. Because this look can be considered a style risk, a rich fabric is crucial. There are plenty of options in the market that are equally as chic as the delicate, no-label pair Amal wore. To take the look one step further, look for a moody color with a deep tone, like bordeaux, navy, or deep olive. It will further the level of unexpectedness and really add some dimension to your look. Simply couple your gloves with a cropped jacket, allow them to peek out of chic dress coat, or layer them over a thin fine knit. Read on to shop a few of our favorite styles!
