* The {{Academy Award}}s. Oh, sure, the Emmys and Tonys have pretty dresses too, but what else is the point of the Red Carpet segment? Certainly not those little interviews. The Red Carpet is ''made'' for this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Westeros has a sharp feudal class distinction, so if you are a woman you are wearing either some dirty sweaty rags or a Pimped Out Dress. However it's the royal personages like Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Margaery Tyrell who wear the most pimped out dresses in [[UnlimitedWardrobe the most variety of styles]]. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And Sansa Stark]].

* ''ElizabethR'' of course has several, worn by Elizabeth, or others. The first episode (when she's still a princess) notes that her dress with [[PrettyInMink ermine sleeves]] is her finest gown.

* The dresses on ''Series/StrictlyComeDancing'', and ballroom dancing in general are often like this. If it involves [[FluffyFasionFeathers feathers]], [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles glitter and/or sequins]], and moderate frills (so the dress looks fancy but can still move), so much the better.

** In "Shindig", Kaylee played PrincessForADay in a [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]] and white dress that loaded with flounces and frills on the skirt and has tiny puff sleeves (that according to Mal made her look like "a sheep standing on its hind legs"). There were of course several other dresses worn at the party including the one it "takes the space of a wink to remove" that had a fancy sash, and a layered skirt with each layer bunched into frills.
*** Kaylee's dress was in fact a cheap knock-off bought in a shop. This resulted in ridicule from the local {{Alpha Bitch}}es, until Kaylee demonstrated that she knows things about spaceship engines, which instantly endeared her to the male half of that ball.

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': The show is set in the late Victorian era and in the beginning of the twentieth century, and many ladies wear gorgeous dresses. Two show's coroners, Drs Julia Ogden and Emily Grace, are seen performing autopsies in beautiful outfits (no scrubs for the doctors yet), and whenever the characters go to the theatre or have a dinner party, the trope is played UpToEleven.

** Lwaxana Troi of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has several, given her high noble status, that she quite often reminds people of.
