Oscars night has finally arrived! It marks the end of the first virtual awards season – and a sign of new beginnings.
Rather than the mainly virtual events we saw at the beginning of the most unique awards season any of us have ever experienced, the beloved Academy Awards red carpet is back, but in a more scaled-down way.
The major dose of awards show fashion we’ve seen from stars at home this year has made its return to the actual event location – two this time around – with stars wowing at the Dolby Theatre and Union Station in Los Angeles.
And they didn’t disappoint on Hollywood’s biggest night.
Carey Mulligan (pictured above) stole the show when she hit the carpet in a dreamy metallic gold Maison Valentino SS21 gown. Her stylist, Nicky Yates, finished the look with delicate Cartier gold hoop earrings.
