The Best Behind-The-Scenes Instagrams From The Oscars

One of the best things about any awards ceremony is the glamour, and there is no night more glamorous than the Oscars.

A-listers will have been prepping for weeks, even months, in the lead up to the event. Every detail is meticulously picked out, from the hair and make-up to the jewellery and the all-important dress, and the finished product is near perfection.

What we don't usually see though (but what many of us are most interested in) is the behind-the-scenes prep and pampering. We're guessing it looks a little more organised than our bedrooms do when our group of girls are getting ready for a night out (i.e. chaos), but, maybe not...

Thanks to social media, we are given an insight into just what goes on off the red carpet, and just how big an A-list glam squad really is...

Naomie Harris

Naomie showed just how much prep goes into an event like the Oscars, and it looks like it involves a load of multi-tasking and a whole entourage.
