Dripped in diamonds, couture gowns and hopefully a harness if you’re Timothée Chalamet, the stars started arriving on the red carpet in full force ahead of the 92nd annual ceremony at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles to close out awards season with a bang.
The consistently well-dressed nominees ― including Scarlett Johansson, Cynthia Erivo and Charlize Theron ― and other famous types like Keanu Reeves, Mindy Kaling and Sandra Oh who will present awards, stunned on the red carpet in a parade of high-end fashions.
But only time will tell if they’ll earn a spot in the Oscar looks history books alongside Angelina Jolie’s leg-baring Versace number, Michelle Williams saffron-colored Vera Wang dress, Billy Porter’s tuxedo gown or Halle Berry’s see-through Elie Saab show-stopper. Yes, it’s been nearly 20 years since Berry’s memorable moment, and we’re still not over it.
Past Academy Awards ceremonies have also given stars the opportunity to make statements of the non-fashion variety, as political symbolism has become more common on the carpet ― see the ACLU pin on Constance Wu’s clutch or Spike Lee iconic “Love” and “Hate” knuckle rings.
Check out all the best looks from the red carpet below.
