For an awards banquet, I wouldn't go formal in the sense of ball gown. But I would go with a more conservative styled cocktail dress. As the pp said, nothing that's really low cut in the front or the back, or that's really short. Basically, I wouldn't go much above the knee. I'm not saying these dresses, exactly, but something in this sort of style "range", so to speak...
(links in next post) I'm not saying get one of the first two, or even ones like it, and I'm not slamming on the 3rd dress (it's really pretty), I'm just showing the sort of level of formal that you tend to find at these sorts of things. Also, keep in mind, it's also going to depend on your command, and nobody is going to expect you to break the bank getting a dress, either. Oh - and of course, there's always going to be someone way over or way under dressed. But for Navy, this is the sort of thing I would go with and it's worked for me.
