LADY Gaga, Emilia Clarke and Jennifer Lopez all dressed to impress at the 91st annual Oscars tonight.
The fashion pack descended upon the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, where some entertainment’s biggest names will find out if they have won one of the coveted Academy Awards.
Brit Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, 32, led the best dressed in a lilac strapless sparkling gown with a flowing train.
She contrasted the custom-made Balmain metallic frock with a red lip and dramatic drop earrings by Niwaka.
Posting on social media ahead of her red carpet appearance, Emilia joked she looked like “a sparkly purple parma violet preened to perfection” – in a nod to the classic British sweet.
Nominee Lady Gaga also wowed in an Audrey Hepburn esque outfit and an eye-wateringly huge Tiffany’s diamond.
Dressed in Alexander McQueen, it a more classic look than most for the 32-year-old singer – who accessorised with black elbow length gloves.
Plus-sized supermodel Ashley Graham, 31, dazzled in a black strapless fishtail gown with an asymmetric neckline – which is by designer Zac Posen.
She accessorised her stunning full-length gown with heavy black eye make-up, her hair slicked back in a centre-parted bun and a classic pearl string necklace.
She posted a selfie with her eight-strong glam squad on her Insta stories earlier this evening, joking: “It really does take a village!”
Jennifer Lopez, 49, looked as flawless as ever in a reflective mirror dress – which brought some glitz to the red carpet.
Fresh from Meghan Markle’s hen ‘do earlier this week, tennis ace Serena Williams dazzled in red and black at the Oscars.
Earlier today, she posted a tongue-in-cheek video of her “pre-Oscars beauty routine” – aka absolutely smashing it on the tennis court.
Emma Stone, 30, also sparkled in a custom-made Louis Vuitton dress – embroidered with sequins, pearls and beads.
She paired the frock, which perfectly matched her amber locks, with custom leather sandals, earrings and a ring from the designer’s High Jewellery Collection.
Actress Amy Adams, 44, literally sparkled in her white and silver strapless gown – as she dripped in jewellery.
Amy is nominated tonight for her role in Vice. This is her sixth Oscar nomination, but the actress is yet to win a coveted gong.
Charlize Theron, 43, debuted a new dark hair ‘do at the Awards – in a daring backless dress by Dior.
Wearing a blue high-necked gown, and dramatic Bulgari jewellery, she rocked a red lip with her new cropped cut.
Actress Lisa Bonet, 51, colour coordinated her outfit with husband Jason Momoa, 39 – who you probably recognise from Aquaman.
At 6ft 4ins, Jason towers about Zoe Kravitz’s mum – but they still look absolutely made for each other.
Japan’s queen of clean Marie Kondo, 34, also wowed in a pink bejewelled Jenny Packham gown – one of Kate Middleton’s favourite designers.
It marked the first Academy Awards red carpet for the Tidying Up star – who gushed: “I’m going to the Oscars!” on Instagram yesterday.
Legendary British actress Helen Mirren, 73, looked amazing in a coral and pink tulle gown – which she gave a flick for the cameras.
Helen has won an Oscar, three consecutive BAFTAs, two Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe during her impressive career.
While Spider-Man actress Laura Harrier, who stars in the six-times nominated movie BLACKkKLANSMAN!, also looked amazing in a blue bejewelled dress.
The 28-year-old posed on the red carpet – showing off the Louis Vuitton gown’s thigh-high slit and her metallic blue heels.
Singer Jennifer Hudson, who’s performing I’ll Fight at tonight’s ceremony, matched the red carpet in her one-shoulder ruffled gown.
The tune is nominated for Best Original Song, while the movie it appears in, RBG, was highlighted for Best Documentary – Feature.
With a high slit and silver peep-toe heels, the 37-year-old looked suitably glam for the biggest event of the cinema calendar.
Mean Girls star Tina Fey, 48, meanwhile was the belle of the ball in a tulle royal blue gown.
Actress Regina King also looked stunning in a white Oscar de la Renta gown (very fitting) which she paired with a silver clasp bracelet by Chopard jewellers.
The Jerry Maguire actress has bagged an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress at this year’s event.
The Oscars is being presented without a host for the first time in 30 years – with a number of celebs ‘guest presenting’ instead.
The Dolby, formerly known as the Kodak Theatre, has hosted every Academy Awards since 2002.
The LA auditorium was designed by American architect David Rockwell, specifically with the Oscars in mind.
The 3,400 capacity building was officially opened on November 9 2001 and cost £72 million ($94m).
The first ever Academy Awards in 1929 were presented at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
