The Oscars was back with a bang this year - and, in terms of talking points, this ceremony did not disappoint. But instead of the slap - probably the most explosive moment in the history of the Academy Awards - let's focus on the fashion.
Because in terms of starry style, there's no greater night than the Oscars. Jessica Chastain, who won for her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, did Old Hollywood, arriving with a sequinned Gucci gown that fit like a glove and featured a plume of purple feathers. Swoon. Ariana DeBose, who made history as the first queer woman of colour to win an Academy Award, turned the tables on the traditional red carpet dress, sporting a red hot three-piece from Valentino Haute Couture (Zendaya also arrived in Valentino, making a very convincing case for wearing a white shirt indeed).
One of the biggest trends of the night was the colour red, which was worn to spectacular effect by the aforementioned DeBose, Jennifer Garner, Kirsten Dunst (who looked like a walking red rose in layered Christian Lacroix), Tracee Ellis Ross, and Marlee Matlin. In terms of looking fashion with a capital F, Maggie Gyllenhaal knocked it out of the park in sculptural (and gold-embellished) Schiaparelli. Oh - and don't forget to check out all the best looks from the after-party to end all after-parties: Vanity Fair's.
