Although there have been multiple award ceremonies this year already – no one knew what to expect out of this year’s Oscars. With the promise of a more intimate ceremony set in Los Angeles’ Union Station, the need for social distancing, and the rather uneven style efforts throughout this locked-down awards season, the anticipation was high. However, to our (pleasant) surprise, the stars in attendance didn’t disappoint and came out in glamorous and unforgettable looks. So, without further ado, here are some of the best looks from this year’s Academy Awards.

Zendaya further established herself as a red carpet force with her look at this year’s Academy Awards. The actress wore a strapless vibrant lemon yellow Valentino Haute Couture gown, which featured a cutout detail that revealed her midriff. The Best Original Score presenter drew inspiration for her look from Cher, which she paired with over 183.3 carats worth of Bulgari diamonds and Jimmy Choo pumps. Valentino said on Instagram that the chiffon dress was custom designed by its creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, and took artisans 300 hours to produce. The Italian label also revealed that the gown has its own name: Force de beauté.
