We’re not in Kansas anymore. #Oscars

A post shared by The Academy (@theacademy) on

The Academy Awards bring out the tuxedos and gowns every year but trending on the 92nd Annual Academy Awards’ red carpet were statement silhouettes and patterns. Everything from architecture to the massive amount of sparkle we’ve come to expect made its way out this year.

Most of us would be hard-pressed to completely copy these looks, but we’ll definitely be looking to them for inspiration next time we need to make a statement.

Billie Eilish came to the red carpet in a custom boxy Chanel suit. The white suit was accessorized with every possible detail from lace Chanel gloves to glittering Chanel earrings and a, you guessed it, Chanel hair tie. We’re obsessed with how elegant her signature slime green hair looks in this simple updo.

Girl, it’s Gucci. Saoirse (that’s pronounced Ser-sha in case you missed it) Ronan brought all the drama to the red carpet with a Gucci design that featured a plunging neckline and a peplum detail at the waist. But, the Best Actress award winner was thinking about sustainability when she got dressed for the event. The black fabric used in her dress was the same fabric used for her gown (another Gucci design) at the BAFTAs.

Gal Gadot

Pink tulle and sheer lace, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot was a fashion hero of the red carpet in her black bodysuit and pink Givenchy skirt. The look, paired with Tiffany & Co jewelry and pink satin Stuart Weitzman shoes, was classic and impossible to overlook.

Janelle Monáe floated onto the red carpet looking like a dream in a sparkly, long-sleeved silver gown complete with a matching hood. Designed by Ralph Lauren, the gown is adorned with 168,000 Swarovski crystals that took 600 hours to add the lacquered silk lamé tulle.

Did a red carpet event even happen if Billy Porter didn’t grace it with his iconic style? For the Oscars, he wore a two-piece ensemble designed by Giles Deacon that was inspired by the architecture of Kensington Palace. The Baroque-print and gold feathers were paired with fierce gladiator heels. Billy Porter might have shined brighter than the Oscars trophies. As he said on his Instagram, “The Category is: Royalty.”
