The biggest night in film brought out the biggest stars for the Oscars on Sunday. Celebrities gathered to celebrate the best films of the year while stepping out in couture style. While some won the beloved golden trophy, here’s who won the award for best looks.

Carey Mulligan

Nominated for Best Actress for her performance in Maestro, Mulligan stunned in a 1951 archived vintage Balenciaga gown. The strapless black dress cinched at the waist with a sweetheart neckline, and flared at the base into flowy white tulle train. 

This classic look was paired with black gloves that reflect the golden age of Hollywood and Fred Leighton sparkling diamond studs hidden behind her curled bob hairstyle. The ensemble is a sweet nod to her character — Felicia Montealegre Bernstein  —  the ‘50s film actress and wife of Leonard Bernstein.

Anya Taylor-Joy

The actress dazzled in a strapless Dior Haute Couture gown embellished with gorgeous silver beading along the gown’s scalloped, petal-like skirt. 

The silver theme was tied together with a simple but stunning Tiffany & Co spiked diamond necklace paired with matching earrings. The gown took inspiration from Botticelli’s painting, The Birth of Venus,’ which was originally used as inspiration for Dior in its autumn/winter 1949/50 collection and took a modern look for the Oscars red carpet.

Lily Gladstone

The actress, nominated for her performance in Killers of the Flower Moon, owned the red carpet in a gown designed by Gucci creative director Sabato De Sarno and Indigenous artist Joe Big Mountain of Ironhorse Quillwork. The deep blue velvet strapless gown was a nod to her Native heritage, paired with a beaded neckline and a flowing cape with white floral quillwork. Tying the piece together was a beaded necklace and flower-shaped earrings to match her train.

Lupita Nyong’o

The Us actress stunned in a baby blue dress to pay homage to the color of her gown the night she won her first Oscar in 2014

The bedazzled gown, designed by Armani Privé was adorned with silver and blue gems, put together with a deep V-neckline. Flapper-style light blue feathers were also draped along the waist and skirt of the dress and tied together with sparkling silver jewelry. Her look was topped off with body shimmer, making her the star of the night.

Emma Stone

The winner of Best Actress for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in the film Poor Things looked extravagant on the red carpet. Stone stunned in a custom light-mint Louis Vuitton strapless gown with a peplum skirt flared out at the waist, putting a twist on the classic red carpet gown. 

She let the gown speak for itself with a simple yellow diamond necklace from the Louis Vuitton High Jewelry collection. The dress was one of the highlights of the evening, even through what appeared to be a zipper or seam malfunction while Stone accepted her award.

While not nominated Sunday, Zendaya still caught eyes in an old Hollywood glamor ensemble. The Dune star wore an Armani Privé fitted gown in pink decorated with dark sequined palm trees. 

The outfit popped with matching Bulgari earrings and a sleek bob. This look is reminiscent of retro Beverly Hills with the tropical print and curled bob hairstyle.
