As the glitziest night in the movie industry, it's customary that at least a few guests will dress as an Oscars statuette, but gold wasn't the only thing shimmering on the red carpet tonight as the stars lit up the night in a rainbow of colour.
The red carpet was awash with sunshine-bright pops of colours, in every shape imaginable. Mindy Kaling kicked things off in a sunflower-yellow column gown by Dolce and Gabbana, with a draped asymmetrical neckline.
Little Women's Florence Pugh looked sweet in a turquoise satin Louis Vuitton gown with a tiered skirt and structured corset bust. We especially loved her matching strappy heels and contrasting pink necklace.
America Ferrera showed off her baby bump in a deep red Grecian-style gown with romantic gathered shoulders, while Chrissy Metz shone in a custom tomato-red gown by Christian Siriano.
Adding even more shine to the red carpet was Booksmart's Kaitlyn Dever, looking sophisticated Louis Vuitton sparkly column dress.
In one of the most original ensembles of the night was Kristen Wiig, looking fantastic in a ruffled red column dress.
There seemed to be 50 shades of pink on the carpet tonight. Idina Menzel stepped out in a rich fuchsia gown, her waist accented by a dramatic bow, while Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood's Julia Butters looked delightful in a voluminous and whimsical baby pink gown featuring a button-up top and ruffled sleeves.
Another micro trend to emerge was black and pink, with Laura Dern, Gal Gadot and our own Caitriona Balfe walking the red carpet in the chic combination.
Dern's Armani gown was sweet and elegant, with heavy black beading across the bust and straps and a sophisticated pearlescent pink gown.
Meanwhile, Balfe's Valentino black fishtail gown was topped with a sheer pink overlay, and Gadot stunned in a Givenchy number featuring a black sheer lace top and feminine pink ruffled skirt.
But it wouldn't be the Oscars without a little glitter, and the stars were shining extra bright as they gleamed in gold. Rebel Wilson brought Old Hollywood glamour to the red carpet, in a figure-hugging custom warm gold number by Jason Wu, her blonde hair waved to perfection.
Killing Eve's Sandra Oh took a more feminine slant on the trend, dazzling in a rose gold gown by Elie Saab that even fashion lover Eve would kill for. In another stunning champagne-hued creation, Brie Larson strutted her stuff in a daring sequin gown, with a deep v-neck and thigh-high slit.
Natalie Portman stepped out in a more muted gold ensemble, wearing a stunning black bodysuit overlayed with a gold sheer gown, covered in intricate embroidery.
Perhaps most notable, however, were the names of female directors who were not nominated for Oscars.
Irishwoman Eimear Noone wowed in a custom gilded jacket by Claire Garvey, wrought with intricate embroidery and a structured train, and we'd be remiss if we excluded the one and only Billy Porter, who stunned in a gown overlayed with gold feathers on the bust.
