The actress posed in her hotel room showing off her incredible red-carpet dress which features pleats, a ruched bust and wide straps. The vibrant design includes a crimson streak down the front, and Reese paired the beautiful dress with a black and gold waist belt.

Choosing to keep her hair simple, she swept her signature blonde locks off of her face and added dazzling drop earrings with a diamond bracelet to finish off the look, both from BVLGARI.

Due to social-distancing regulations, the 2021 Academy Awards were held across two venues in Hollywood - the Dolby Theatre and downtown Los Angeles' historic Union Station. British nominees gathered at the BFI Southbank, where the London Film Festival usually takes place, and joined the show via a live stream.

The Oscars is taking place in two venues this year

The production has had to adhere to many COVID-secure rules, including limiting members of the audience to just 170 - a far cry from the thousands that would usually fill one venue. Attendees are also required to take at least three COVID-19 tests ahead of the night and have their temperatures taken at the door before entry is permitted.

For the third year in a row, the show did not have an official host, but instead featured a range of famous faces presenting the awards, including Halle Berry, Brad Pitt and Zendaya.
