We’ve probably mentioned time and time again that Scarlett Johansson can do no wrong when it comes to nailing the red carpet look. And the Oscars were no exception. The actress arrived on the red carpet in a stunning custom Oscar De La Renta gown in silver silk, featuring a long train. The gown was figure hugging in all the right places and featured a sheer bodice with no sleeves and draped fabric across her waist. The starlet accessorized with a diamond bangle and simple earrings which were enough to make a statement. For her hair and makeup look, Scarlett Johansson had her hair tied back in a loose bun with some strands of hair falling on her face. She opted for smokey eyes and a subtle pout.
2. Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron was turning heads when she arrived on the red carpet at the 92nd Academy Awards and it’s not hard to see why. The actress, who brought her mother as her date to the Oscars, arrived in a custom black Dior gown which featured a thigh-high slit and a long train. The structured dress featured one sleeve with the other off the shoulder and a peplum silhouette at the waist. She teamed the dress with a pair of black ankle-strap heels and a diamond necklace and rings. We’re totally loving Charlize Theron’s hairdo and only she can pull off such a short look. She rounded off the look with smokey eyes and a nude lip and this look is definitely a winner in our sartorial books.
3. Rebel Wilson

If there’s one actor who upped the glam quotient at this year’s Oscars, it was none other than Rebel Wilson. Rebel was one of the few starlets who channeled old Hollywood glamour in her sparkly gold gown. The Isn’t It Romantic actress was clad in a sequined Jason Wu gown which featured a plunging neckline and was knotted at the front. The floor-length gown hid her shoes and Rebel Wilson was most certainly a class apart in this look. She teamed the dress with a simple gold necklace and opted for vintage Hollywood waves, swept back and parted to the side. She rounded off her look with a shimmery makeup look and a bold red lip to finish the look. Wowza!
4. Mindy Kaling

Hey there sunshine! Mindy Kailing showed up to the Oscars red carpet in a bright yellow number and most certainly brightened our day. The starlet’s sunshine yellow one shoulder number was custom made by fashion power house, Dolce & Gabbana featured a short trail and pleated fabric at the bodice. The stunning dress was flattering on her curves and she teamed the eye catching dress with a statement diamond neck piece and drop diamond earrings. The actress had her hair parted to the side and swept at the back and she opted for smokey eyes and glistening bronze lips. Overall, Mindy Kaling was a class apart in her look for the Oscars and she gets our stamp of approval.
5. Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman’s look for the Oscar’s became the talk of the town as her ensemble featured the embroidered names of all the directors who weren't nominated for the 92nd Academy Awards. Names on the cape included Lorene Scafaria, Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Marielle Heller, Melina Matsoukas, Alma Har’el, Céline Sciamma and Mati Diop. For the red carpet, Natalie Portman sported a sheer custom Dior gown which was cinched at the waist with a rope-like belt. The gown was front open and paved way for lots of luxe fabric. The look was rounded off with a floor-length overcoat which wrapped up the look nicely. Natalie Portman had her short hair styled in loose waves and parted in the middle. She opted for brown smokey eyes, a bronzed glow and a nude lip. A real hit in our books.
