The Oscars are full of glamour, drama, laughs and love. And that’s just the red carpet. Choosing our favourite looks from the 2019 Academy Awards was no easy task, but it had to be done. There are a few people who also appeared in our Golden Globes fashion roundup, and you’ll see exactly why. Also, Billy Porter is our new style hero.

Better than Oscar
Billy Porter blew us away at the Globes with his bejewelled suit, topped with a cape that had a hot pink lining. Well, for the Oscars he turned it down a bit in a lush black velvet tuxedo dress with a voluminous skirt. He told Vogue: “People are going to be really uncomfortable with my black ass in a ball gown – but it’s not anybody’s business but mine!” Well Billy, we think you’re hot!

Queen of the carpet
Regina King was another person who featured in our Golden Globes picks. When we saw her classic white draped gown, we fell in love. The simple elegance was taken up several notches with the draping over her hip that showed off her legs. And she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress!

The glam U give
Rising star Amandla Stenberg channeled old-style Hollywood glam in a gorgeous beaded sheath dress. After her astounding performance in The Hate U Give, we’re sure we’re going to be seeing this talented actress on red carpets for years to come.

Looking like 30 million bucks
That’s exactly what Lady Gaga had dangling around her neck for the evening. The Tiffany Yellow Diamond is 287.42 carats and is worth $30 million – and it was found in South Africa. (Any chance of us getting it back?)

Regal and powerful
Angela Bassett captivated our hearts in her hot pink gown adorned with an oversized bow on the shoulder. Majestic and magnificent.
