One of the new generation of Hollywood stars taking bold fashion risks, the actor looks sharp in a velvet red Etro three piece tuxedo with white boots.

GLENN CLOSE

The Hollywood veteran is nominated for role in The Wife, and although she is the recipient of numerous awards including three Tony Awards, three Golden Globes and three Emmys, she's yet to win an Oscar. In this incredible golden gown by Carolina Herrera, she looks ready to get up on stage and accept her award.

GEMMA CHAN

Someone was bound to wear something from Valentino's latest Couture collection, and this pink colour is so good on Gemma who's always one to have fun with her red carpet style.

KACEY MUSGRAVES

Also wearing a frothy pink frock, this Giambattista Valli spring 2019 Haute Couture dress is an elevated take on the country singer's usual country kitsch style.

REGINA KING

The actress channels old Hollywood glamour in a white gown by Oscar de la Renta, complete with a high split and strapless neckline. She is nominated for Actress in a Supporting Role for If Beale Street Could Talk.

LUCY BOYNTON AND RAMI MALEK

One of the best parts of Bohemian Rhapsody was seeing these two act. The real-life couple make a glamourous duo; Lucy in an off-the-shoulder gown in vivid purple by Rodarte and Rami in a tuxedo - a far more traditional look for the star who's been sporting more fashion-forward red-carpet looks recently.

LISA BONET

Lisa's style is unique and we love this lighter shade of pink. This Fendi fall couture 2018 outfit has a Victoriana vibe with the high collar and pointy boots, but its primness is given a kick with Lisa's individual edge.

RACHEL WEISZ

Rachel has been taking a more high-fashion approach to red carpet dressing recently and it's fun to witness. This crimson gown by Givenchy cuts a relatively pared-back silhouette, but it's the details that make it interesting - from the 3D floral designs to the latex overlay. The headband is cute too.

CHARLIZE THERON

Charlize cuts a sleek figure in this powder blue high-necked dress by Dior. Sometimes the most minimal silhouettes that are the most intimidating to wear, but combined with her sharp bob, refined jewellery and contrasting lipstick, Charlize pulls it off.

BRIE LARSON

There were a few metallic silver gowns on the red carpet this year, but Brie definitely looks the coolest and most relaxed in her Celine by Hedi Slimane dress. The gown fits her like a glove, and her relaxed beachy hair is a nice departure from fussy Oscars hairdo's.

LADY GAGA

One of the night's most anticipated arrivals, Lady Gaga went back to her roots in a custom Alexander McQueen gown. The black, strapless dress was given the Gaga treatment with extra wide hip pads, and she paired it with over-the-elbow leather gloves and an enormous Tiffany & Co. diamond around her neck. The diamond was last seen, according to The New York Times' Vanessa Friedman, on Audrey Hepburn in a 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' photo shoot.
