The 88th Annual Academy Awards are going down now! With many black leaders in entertainment opting out of the awards show and Chris Rock hosting, it is undoubtedly going to be one of the most eventful nights in Hollywood.
Let’s get into the ensembles, shall we?

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend got our vote for the night’s cutest couple, with the mommy-to-be in Marchesa.
A big red carpet event cannot go down without a Zuhair Murad sighting. Priyanka Chopra chose the brand for the evening in a strapless sheer, floral embroidered number. Ravishing.
Sofia Vergara stuck to her signature strapless silhouette in Marchesa, but gave a bit something different in the form department with peplum and tulle detailing.
Mindy Kaling was on-trend in an off-the-shoulder Elizabeth Kennedy gown with a sleek chignon and deep berry lips. Stunning.

The Weeknd was suited up in what seemed like the hundredth black tux of the evening.
Lady Gaga tried on trousers for the evening in a strapless Brandon Maxwell jumpsuit with a voluminous overlay and train. Magnificent look!
Olivia Munn went bold in an orange one-shoulder Stella McCartney gown and Forevermark diamonds. A great mix of elegance and fun.
Andra Day always serves up a retro-inspired look. She did it to perfection in a yellow off-the-shoulder gown. Beautiful!

Cate Blanchett is easily one of my all-time red carpet faves. She did not disappoint in a rosette-detailed Armani gown.
