The red carpet has been receiving a dose of androgyny lately, as some stars are trading thigh-grazing, back-baring dresses for tailored suits. Keep reading to see which leading ladies have been rocking the menswear trend.

First up is Evan Rachel Wood, who debuted a new, punk-inspired pixie cut at the True Blood premiere in Hollywood on June 21. The 23-year-old actress wore gray pants and a vest, which featured leopard-print on the back, plus red suspenders by Dolce & Gabbana.

Clad in a black tuxedo by Thierry Mugler, Naomi Watts passed down the designer's Angel campaign crown to Eva Mendes in NYC on June 23. The 42-year-old star softened up her tailored suit with a feminine hair style.

Alicia Keys stepped out at the 2011 BET Awards in L.A. on June 26 in black trousers, a white blazer, and sheer shirt all by Dolce & Gabbana. The songstress, 30, pulled the two hues together with black and white zebra platforms.

Lastly, Julia Roberts attended the L.A. premiere for her new movie, Larry Crowne, on June 27 in a midnight blue Gucci suit. The actress, 43, added a pop of color to her monotone getup with a bright green necklace.
