2.    Laverne Cox

Now that Hollywood's biggest night has officially begun, Laverne Cox is dominating the show with her gorgeous outfits as usual. The 51-year-old actress made a splash at last year's Oscars when she appeared in a stunning Disney princess-inspired dress. However, this year, Cox wore a stunning gold and black gown designed by Manfred Thierry Mugler. The mermaid dress features a black neck scarf that transitions into a flowing cape and a metallic-gold bustier with a plunging neckline. The actress, who E! While anchoring the red carpet pre-show, added an Alzen pendant necklace and vintage Mulgar star earrings to complete the ensemble. She was meanwhile styling her hair into an intricate, royal updo.

3.    Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough is a master at showing off her style on the red carpet. The Dancing with the Stars host made a different choice for Sunday's 96th Academy Awards in Los Angeles. She decided on jeans instead of a gown!

Huff wore a white jumpsuit by Alexandre Vauthier Couture, accessorized with a bodice that sparkled in gold and silver. Her jumpsuit appears as a gown due to the optical illusion created by the voluminous pants. Despite his playful appearance on the red carpet, Hugh made sure everyone knew he was wearing jeans.

4.    Issa Rae

The actress, who wore a full-length AMI Paris dress with a plunging neckline, stunned on the 2024 Oscars red carpet at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on March 10 at Ovation Hollywood. The actress starred in three films that received Academy Award nominations: Barbie, American Fiction, and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Rae turned heads with her figure-hugging gown, which featured a plunging, plunging neckline and a black, sequined bodice for a glamorous flair.

The actress accessorized her look with a sparkling bracelet on her right wrist and a pair of dangling silver earrings. He also adorned each of his hands with an exquisite variety of ornaments.

5.    Gabrielle Union

To create the look, Union collaborated with veteran stylist Thomas Christos Kikis. At the end of awards season, completely custom gowns are nothing new, but Union's custom gown started out as two separate pieces! Both items are from Herrera's 2024 Pre-Fall collection.

Classic beauty is epitomized by Gabrielle Union's soft smokey eye and coiffed hairstyle, a la ballerina. With this ultra-silk updo and her amazingly perfect skin, her look is glamour. Defined brows, a matte nude lip, volumized lashes, and the ideal amount of blush and highlighter created a subtle yet elegant result.

6.    Cynthia Erivo

Cynthia Erivo’s bejeweled, negative-space manicure that looks like — you guessed it — "defying gravity" will make her stand out on the Oscars red carpet. With a Louis Vuitton gown that basically screams and alludes to the iconic green witch Elphaba's character, Erivo turned the Oscars into Oz-cars. Emerald jewelry, a manicure that doubles as an accessory in itself—crystal-encrusted nails by Ariyo—and a wash of forest-green eyeshadow (Kaijer Ves Creme Eyeshadow in Sublime, makeup artist Joanna skillfully applied along the lash line by Simkin) completed. In particular, his thumbs were completely covered with gems that ranged in color from clear to emerald.

8.    Eva Longoria

A tight black dress is the epitome of red carpet-ready, and Eva Longoria seems to agree. The Desperate Housewives actress hit the 2024 Oscars red carpet sporting a stunning black gown that would probably make Morticia Addams jealous.

The celebrity wore a strapless black dress by Tamara Ralph. The hem of the dress flared into a short train, and the sleeves flared to a point to create an exaggerated off-the-shoulder neckline, adding drama to the ensemble.

Longoria accessorized with simple pieces to match the rest of her outfit, donning a Boucherer diamond wrap necklace with a large center diamond.

9.    Anya Taylor

Anya Taylor Joy turned heads on the red carpet with her effortlessly stylish ear tuck, a simple yet elegant look. This hair styling technique is a perfect example of how a small detail can make a big impact on overall red carpet sophistication. Her bright blonde hair, tucked behind her ear and falling just enough in a cropped front, looked stunning against her metallic dress and peach lips. Her makeup was a stunning combination of dramatic liner, thick lashes and lip color that brought out her beautiful features. Celebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell, behind this winning look for Dior, gave her outfit the perfect amount of glitz.

Emma Stone (almost) bared it all in a custom Louis Vuitton dress at the 2024 Vanity Fair Oscars After Party on Sunday. Stone wore a sheer see-through dress with an asymmetrical hemline that featured a matching bra top. Aside from a few rings on her fingers and a pair of basic earrings, Stone did not appear to be wearing any elaborate jewelry. She also wore strappy heeled sandals. Her hair was parted in the middle and fell straight around her shoulders.

11.    Kristen Dunst

We can all relate to Kirsten Dunst, at least when it comes to occasionally making a fool of herself in front of others. The actress made her red carpet appearance at the 2024 Oscars on March 10 and managed to keep herself from falling as gracefully as possible.

Walking the red carpet with her spouse Jesse Plemons, Dunst wore a stark white custom Gucci gown paired with a plunging side part and a striking red lip. Kirsten Dunst, accompanied by her spouse Jesse Plemons, graced the red carpet in an outfit that left us speechless. For the occasion, Gucci designed a dress that epitomizes '90s minimalism. In fact, it's so fantastic that we believe it should be worn down the aisle.

14.    Ariana Grande

While Ariana Grande's Oscars 2024 dress on Sunday was clearly inspired by her Wicked character Glinda the Good, she didn't cast a magical bubble for her red carpet arrival. Grande looked stunning in a custom candy pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture ruched column gown, with a billowing item that appeared to be a train, overskirt and cape combination. Matching shoes, Tiffany & Co. K pink jewels, and a lively blonde ponytail finished off the ensemble.

15.    Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie's Barbie days are over, after a months-long press tour that spawned thousands of stories and even an entire book. The actor and producer decided to give the doll a proper funeral, a la Barbie, for the film's Oscars 2024 send-off.

Robbie Versace looked stunning in a strapless gown straight off the runway, plunging at the hips and featuring stunning black chain mail. America Ferrera, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress and starred alongside her in Barbie, worked alongside her in a pink chainmail dress by the Italian brand.

Robbie's go-to hairdresser Bryce Scarlett created an equally understated, effortlessly stylish, simple and carefree look for her Oscars haircut. With a relaxed center parting, a slight wave at the crown, and a bedhead-like lift, she brought out Robbie's "spun with gold" color—which celebrity colorist Jacob Schwartz used to Schwarzkopf.
