We are literally counting down to Oscars 2017 here at RTÉ LifeStyle. The awards may technically be about film, but for us, it's all about the fashion! Check out the three things you need to know about this year's red carpet.

1. The Red Carpet
Oscars 2017 will take place this Sunday, 26th February at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles. The celebrities will arrive on the red carpet in their designer gear from 4:00 pm in LA which will be midnight in Ireland.

2. The Ones to Watch
Every year, Hollywood's elite go all out with designer dresses, killer heels, and a full glam squad to get them red carpet ready. While some celebs seem to live on the best-dressed list, others have consistently missed the mark. Who are the ones to watch this year? We have our money on Ruth Negga, Emma Stone, and Natalie Portman.
