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.
There were a number of trends spotted on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night, including thigh-high slits and plunging necklines . But the most important trend was a color choice that had real symbolic meaning. While this year’s Golden Globes and Grammys had notable dress codes that allowed celebrities to illustrate their solidarity with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, it seems that standing for equality is ingrained in some people’s style choices regardless of the sartorial rules. Whether done intentionally or not, white was the preferred color of celebs like Jane Fonda , Margot Robbie , and even Timothée Chalamet . White has long been considered a nod to one of the earliest women’s movements, the suffragettes, who were fighting for the right to vote. Because of this, the color has come to signify fairness, equality, and hope. This symbolism was especially evident during Hillary Clinton ‘s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, which led women to voting booths in white suits to show support for the female presidential hopeful. White roses played an important role at the 2018 Grammys in late January , as a group called Voices in Entertainment made a call for artists to carry the flowers. “We choose the white rose because historically it stands for hope, peace, sympathy, and resistance,” Voices in Entertainment wrote in a letter sent to invitees of the ceremony — and clearly the trend has stuck. Here’s a look at all of the celebrities who wore white for the night.

Kathy Griffin wants to help Suzie Hardy, the stylist who accused Ryan Seacrest of sexual misconduct, because no one did the same for her after she faced public backlash for appearing in a photo shoot in which she held a bloodied severed fake head of President Trump. “Hey Suzie Hardy, I will do for you that which no one did for me after May 30,” the 57-year-old comedienne tweeted on Sunday night. “After you were brave enough to speak out I’m happy to offer you a job as my stylist to dress me this week for Jimmy Kimmel and Real Time & I’ll PAY you.

The Academy Awards, AKA the ‘Oscars’ is one of the biggest red carpet events of the year and is now only days away. Naturally, we all can’t wait to see the lavish outfits, as well as spotting some of our fave celeb couples.
If we ever got to walk the red carpet at the Oscars, we can imagine it’d be hard to strike a balance between elegant and a bit dull, or striking and garish.
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.

From pixie cut to memorable curls, Halle Berry’s hair has always been a talking point. The actress paired her custom Atelier Versace gown with free-flowing curls that gave a fun vibe to her couture look. Hairstylist Castillo exaggerated Halle’s natural ringlets using T3’s Whirl Trio Curling Iron, resulting in a retro look. “I have always marched to the beat of my own drum, and I think this red carpet look encapsulates that,” Halle told Vogue.
Although several of this year’s Oscars gowns were custom-made, a few came straight from the recent couture runways. Dior was a popular choice with both Felicity Jones and Charlize Theron choosing differing styles. A glittering Chanel number also popped up on Sofia Boutella while Janelle Monae opted for a huge Elie Saab design from a few seasons ago.

Since Donald Trump was elected President, tons of celebrities have showed their support for the groups targeted by his old-fashioned policies. Emma Stone hit headlines for her Best Actress win along with her stunning golden flapper dress by Givenchy.
Just like last year’s nude Versace gown, Jennifer Aniston favoured another slinky design for the 2017 Oscars. The actress stunned in a custom black dress by the Italian label that broke the fashion rulebook by featuring both a low-cut neckline and a thigh-high slit. Aniston attended the ceremony alongside husband Justin Theroux and delivered an emotional speech as part of the memorial tribute to those who have lost their lives in the industry over the past year.
The Vanity Fair Oscars party is guaranteed to invite the top nominees and other stars who weren’t quite lucky enough to attend the ceremony. For 2017, the likes of Diane Kruger, Kate Upton and Rooney Mara turned up in attention-grabbing dresses. But it was Katy Perry and Jennifer Aniston’s shimmering designs that really stole the show.

From ‘Once Upon a Time’ co-stars (and real-life husband and wife) Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas to Ryan Gosling and his sister, there were a lot of eye-catching couples on the 2017 Oscars red carpet. Jamie Dornan’s wife Amelia Warner looked breathtaking in a lilac caped gown, Mel Gibson’s 26-year-old girlfriend Rosalind Ross stunned in a corset bodice – five weeks after giving birth – and Chrissy Teigen and John Legend appeared to be on the best date of their lives.

Another year of the Oscars is over and with it has of course come a whole host of memorable gowns. Old Hollywood glamour reigned supreme at the 2017 awards with Emma Stone and Brie Larson choosing vintage-style dresses. Huge fairytale gowns straight from a Disney story were also seen on the likes of Janelle Monae and Leslie Mann. As for colours, gold dominated (think Dakota Johnson in Gucci) along with a vibrant shade of red (Ruth Negga in Valentino and Viola Davis in Armani Prive).
Actor and comedian Seth Rogen helped honor Back to the Future alongside the movie’s star, Michael J. Fox, at the 89th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night.
Jimmy Kimmel made a whole lot of jokes about weight while hosting the Oscars. Two years ago, Jimmy Kimmel told the world how he lost a bunch of weight on a fasting diet. “I’ve known Matt so long that when I first met Matt, I was the fat one,” he said.
With “Beauty and the Beast” premiering on March 17, everyone’s got the Disney princess on the brain … including Leslie Mann. The actress hit the Oscars red carpet with husband of 20 years Judd Apatow in an almost identical gown to Belle’s. The chartreuse number was designed by Zac Posen — and his inspiration seemed obvious. While Mann looked a lot like Belle, others compared best actress nominee Emma Stone to another “Beauty and the Beast” character, Lumière, the candlestick, in her gold, glittering Givenchy gown.
