The Oscars began with a bang Sunday when Zendaya, Lily James, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Nicole Kidman and more of the biggest stars in Hollywood filed into the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Inside, they hobnobbed and celebrated the year's critically lauded films, including the Jane Campion-directed western The Power of the Dog, which had an impressive 12 nominations going into the night, and Dune, the sci-fi hit that had 10 nods of its own, at the 94th Academy Awards. In a ceremony presided over by actress Regina Hall and comedians Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes, the night's other Best Picture nominees — CODA, King Richard, Belfast, Don't Look Up, Drive My Car, Licorice Pizza, Nightmare Alley and West Side Story — were also saluted.
But the pre-show outside was all about the fashion — the glittery dresses, snazzy suits and everything in between. They stunned in dresses that famous designers, in many cases, created just for them, and added carefully chosen accessories. Their elaborate hair and makeup only added to the drama.
Here's a look at what they wore:
The actress dropped jaws in Valentino on a memorable night for her and the rest of the Dune cast and crew.
The Pam and Tommy star was pretty in a pink gown from Versace.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
Kardashian selected vintage Thierry Mugler for her first trip to the Oscars. She accompanied her fiancé, who was part of the night's in-house band.
The nominee for her starring role in The Eyes of Tammy Faye was giving serious mermaid vibes in a shimmering gown from Gucci.
Kidman, who was nominated for Best Actress for playing Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos, wore an Armani Privé dress in a shade created just for her.
Jamie Lee Curtis
Curtis, who was scheduled to make a special presentation, sparkled in a navy turtleneck gown designed by Stella McCartney.
Who said men have to be stuck in standard black and white? Snipes, one of the night's presenters, went all out in burgundy.
The Inventing Anna actress, who worked as a red carpet correspondent for E!'s coverage of the night's festivities, wore a strapless black number with a gray stole draped over her shoulders.
