Pops of colour came from Kodi Smit-McPhee in baby blue, Sebastian Yatra in pink, and Daniel Kaluuya, wearing turquoise satin Gucci.
Naturally, there was a crop of gents in classic tuxedos, including Bradley Cooper, Shawn Mendes and Jacob Elordi. However, this year black shirts were the stars of the show for the men of Hollywood, with Jason Momoa, Andrew Garfield and Josh Brolin all layering tonal pieces.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Timothee Chalamet both proved that tuxedo rules don’t have to be followed, with Gyllenhaal opting to go without a bow-tie, and Chalamet arriving on the red carpet shirtless under his sequinned Louis Vuitton jacket.
The Oscars, held at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, are back to full-force this year, with Covid-19 vaccine requirements for all those in attendance. Requirements for those in attendance include mandatory PCR tests for performers and presenters.
