Watch: Stars arrive on the Oscars red carpet
As Hollywood descends on this year’s Academy Awards ceremony not only are all eyes on who will win the prestigious gongs, but also on the glamorous Oscars red carpet.
After last year’s scaled back affair, the Oscars 2022 red carpet promised to provide what we’ve all been waiting for: the high-octane fashion for which the event is famed.
And the stars truly delivered: Lupita Nyong’o rivalled the Oscars statue itself in a gilded sequinned Prada gown, whereas Kristen Stewart’s shorts tux is one of the most contemporary looks we’ve seen on the red carpet in years.
