The Oscars are finally back. The biggest event in the awards season calendar is here for the 95th Academy Awards ceremony bringing all the glitz and glamour that we expect.

Although it’s difficult to imagine a drama that could top last year’s viral Will Smith moment, the sartorial agenda on the red carpet was a masterclass of elegance, only enhanced by the Oscars’ newly adopted champagne coloured carpet that replaced red for the first time.

The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood was awash with designer gowns, extravagant jewellery and opulent beauty looks, which matched the energy of the goodie bags that guests walk away with, approximately worth a whopping $100k.
