Contrary to what you have seen, Will Smith, Chris Rock and Timothée Chalamet’s bare chest weren’t in fact that only attendees at Sunday night’s Oscars. These are the fabulous fashion moments you might have missed and which definitely deserve some attention.

A good night for vintage

For Sienna Miller and Emily Ratajkowski, it was vintage Armani Privé couture at the Vanity Fair after party; for Kourtney Kardashian, a 1980s Mugler gown for the ceremony. One of the best dressed of the night was Kirsten Dunst (attending with her husband Jesse Plemons, both of them nominated for their roles in The Power of the Dog) a ruffled Christian Lacroix gown from the designer's AW02 couture collection. Sublime!

Beyoncé aces literal dressing

Has Beyoncé been taking cues from Kate Middleton? Like her, she seems to be a fan of literal dressing. Queen Bey opened the show with a performance of Be Alive, her nominated song from King Richard, in a feathered tennis ball yellow David Koma dress. She continued to ace the athletic theme like a champ in a joyful yellow Valentino haute couture look and a jewel encrusted Judith Lieber tennis ball bag.

Real men wear two scrunchies

Jason Momoa + hair accessories = yes, please. This time he went for double scrunchie action: a pink one in his plaited hair, a black one on his wrist. A useful friend to have on the night when it gets late and you want to tie your hair up.

Queen Jada!

With all the hoo-ha surrounding her husband, the fact that Jada Pinkett Smith looked absolutely A.MA.ZING has got lost. So a moment please for her Jean Paul Gaultier by Glenn Martens couture gown.

Wish you were her

Jealousy is unattractive, but we’ll admit to feeling more than a little envious of model Jeanne Cadieu. Why? No, nothing to do with that man she’s standing next to but that brilliant Loewe SS22 breastplate dress she’s wearing. An inspired, unexpected, interesting choice. Top marks.

New new Bottega, baby

Matthieu Blazy only showed his first collection for Bottega Veneta at the end of last month, but it’s already making waves on the red carpet. Wearing new new BV on the night were Uma Thurman (in the quiet style hit of the night: the white shirt), Sarah Paulson (in one of the swishy fringed skirts) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (in a powder blue suit).

Be more Moreno

In 1961 Rita Moreno picked up the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Anita in West Side Story; on Sunday night Ariana DeBose took home the same award. And Moreno was there to cheer on her successor, serving major glamour at 90 in a Carolina Herrera gown and feathered headdress. The lesson? Fabulous doesn’t have a sell-by date.

Zoë and Jessie rethink pink (and go a bit Gwynnie)

Having, almost exclusively, gone for severe, sassy black looks for her The Batman press and premiere tour Zoë Kravitz was feeling in a sweeter mood for the Oscars. Wearing a candy pink Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello dress on the red carpet, she put her own cool girl twist on that Gwyneth Paltrow 1999 Ralph Lauren dress. Also putting a fresh spin on the princess pink gown was Jessie Buckley - who has emerged as one of the most interesting red carpet dressers of the past year - in custom Erdem, styled by Rose Forde.

The best bump in the biz

The owner of the world’s best dressed bump, HRH Rihanna, was out and about at Jay Z’s after party. Continuing to rewrite the rules of maternity dressing, she went for a sheer Valentino couture look.

The couple who dress together...

At a normal Oscars, Kristen Stewart’s Chanel short-shorts and unbuttoned shirt would have stolen the show. Alas that wasn’t to be. But her, and her fiancé Dylan Meyer’s coordinated takes on the new-twist tux deserve, nay demand, their moment in the limelight. Anything boys can do, girls can do better?

Who are you calling invisible?

The women of Hollywood have long lamented feeling ‘invisible’ over 30 (the stats back them up). But the 40-and-over queens made their leading lady status known on the red carpet. See Best Actress winner Jessica Chastain (45) in two glorious Gucci gowns (one for the ceremony, one for the Vanity Fair party), Olivia Colman (48) in goddess-worthy metallic Dior, Maggie Gyllenhaal (44) in sculptural Schiaparelli, Pénélope Cruz (47) in a Chanel big black dress and Nicole Kidman – 54 and the most memed person of the night – looking utterly resplendent in Armani.
