Months of awards season preparations have led us to this moment: the 91st Academy Awards. All of Hollywood's biggest stars assembled their glam teams to make the red carpet as fabulous as possible — and the result was an array of shimmering, ruffly shades of pink and purple, with sharp tuxedos balanced by sleek gowns.
From Awkwafina's oversized bow to Kacey Musgraves's shoulder loofahs, here are all the must-see looks from the Oscars red carpet.
Crazy Rich Asians may have been shut out of the nominations, but the influential film was still fully represented at the ceremony with its stars tapped to present! Constance Wu's sunny disposition matched her yellow Versace gown as she made her way into the Dolby Theatre.
Hello, gorgeous! The Dumplin' lead went full Hollywood glamour with soft waves flowing into the wide neckline of her classic red gown.
Fresh off her Album of the Year win at the Grammys, Kacey Musgraves popped over to the Oscars to serve as a presenter. She took a simple light pink gown and pumped it up with cascading ruffles from the neckline to the floor.
Most stars decide between a gown or tux for Hollywood's biggest night. Billy Porter considered those options and thought, "Why not both!" The Pose star donned a custom Christian Siriano tuxedo gown and successfully shut down the carpet before it even began.
Now this is a suit! Awkwafina rocked the carpet in a shimmering lilac tux accented with a matching oversized bow around her neck.
This may be Amandla Stenberg's first Oscars, but she walked this carpet like she's been doing it for years. The presenter chose a flapper-inspired look, complete with a modern approach to braided finger waves.
Elsie Fisher blessed us with one last tuxedo look before signing off with one final awards season "Gucci!" The Eighth Grade actress dressed up her suit with a simple cat eye, snazzy neck charm, and sparkling barrette.
Emilia Clark added more lilac vibes in a shimmering structured gown. Just one tiny problem — she "legitimately can't pee." Ah, the sacrifices we make for fashion!
Brie Larson showed off her Captain Marvel arms in a sleeveless metallic number as she prepared to hit the stage as a presenter.
Best Supporting Actress nominee Emma Stone showcased her shoulders in a scaly bronze-colored gown.
J. Lo dazzled from head to toe in a mosaic of mirrors by Tom Ford, topping off her classic silhouette with a soft side part.
Chadwick Boseman repped Black Panther's big night with a black and blue shimmering tuxedo jacket fit for a king.
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet
The husband and wife duo added texture to their color-coordinated looks by layering on the fabric. But one small detail really makes the look — the Aquaman star's custom scrunchie, should he need to tie back his long locks.
Amy Adams stunned in a sophisticated form-fitting gown with loose waves covering her bare shoulders.
The Best Actress nominee looked sleek in a belted pantsuit — and took the classic look to the next level by adding a floor-length cape.
Tessa Thompson looked statuesque in a black dress with gold embellishments.
Lady Gaga offered a classic Oscars look with a twist — where other gowns might curve into the body, her flowing gown jutted out at the hips.
