The Oscars 2019 was just as star-studded as expected. Celebrities including ‘The Favourite’ lead Olivia Colman, ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Emilia Clarke and even tennis superstar Serena Williams took to the red carpet, wearing an array of wow-factor ensembles.
From Angelina Jolie's leggy Atelier Versace dress to Hilary Swank's blue, backless Guy Laroche gown, we chart the most iconic Oscars dresses of all time.
From the hair and makeup to the selfies and the after parties, these are the best glimpses into backstage life at the Oscars.
Blanca Blanco, the actress who made a statement at the Golden Globes by wearing a red dress while most other attendees opted for black gowns to protest sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, is back with another standout look. At the Oscars on Sunday, Blanco again walked the red carpet in the standout color from designer Atria Couture. According to Fox News, Blanco helped design the dress.
The Oscars is undoubtedly the most star-studded event in the awards season calendar. This year stars including Saoirse Ronan, Daniel Kaluuya and Margot Robbie will grace the red carpet in their finest gowns and sharpest tuxedos before taking their seats to find out if they’ve won the coveted gong. All eyes will be on the dresses and suits, with the fashion pack ready in waiting to give their opinions about who nailed it in the clothing stakes. One thing’s for sure – the red carpet is going to look very different to the way it did 20 years ago. Back in 1998 we had Brad Pitt in red tinted spectacles, Drew Barrymore covered in body glitter and Demi Moore sporting a curly bob hairdo. And every second actress was wearing something beaded and had a miniature stole draped over the crook of her elbows. How things have changed.
