After months of anticipation, the Academy Awards finally returned to Los Angeles on Sunday night and gave us another red carpet to remember. Hollywood’s biggest stars were on top of their fashion game at this year’s Oscars, and we’re bringing you ten red carpet looks that stole the show.

Head-to-toe metallic looks were going stronger than ever at the Oscars, and some of the night’s best looks came in shimmering bright shades. Anya Taylor-Joy and Lupita Nyong’o opted for show-stopping icy dresses, while Zendaya rocked our world in her pink gown with silver palm-tree pattern.

Speaking of pink, we’ve seen several more stars bringing the Barbiecore vibes to the red carpet. America Ferrera was shining as bright as ever in her glittery Atelier Versace dress, while Ariana Grande hit the red carpet in the voluminous Giambattista Valli gown.

Several stars took the vintage approach to the red carpet dressing and pulled their red carpet looks straight from the archives. Carey Mulligan wore an archival 1950s Balenciaga gown, while Anya Taylor-Joy’s custom Dior gown paid homage to the brand’s iconic Junon dress.

Edgy black gowns and dresses with mermaid vibes and structured details were also going strong at this year’s Oscars, and some of them were even worn by the night’s best-dressed stars.
