From the arrivals to the press room, we take you through a visual journey through the pageantry, joys, and fashions of the 92nd Academy Awards.

Park So Dam and the man of the night Bong Joon Ho of Parasite arrive to the red carpet.
Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan wore a custom Gucci gown highlighted by a V-neck bodice made of the black satin left over from her BAFTAs gown, with a ruffled waist detailing and a pale lilac skirt.
Natalie Portman was lovely in Dior Haute Couture featuring a cape embroidered with names of women of film, “who were not represented for their incredible work this year.” Names include Gerwig, Diop, Heller, Scafaria, Wang, , Ha’rel, Sciamma., and Matsoukas.
Charlize Theron wears a timeless custom-made Dior gown with single shoulder and a thigh-high slit.
Janelle Monae had the shiniest dress on the red carpet with shades of Whitney Houston’s dress from the Bodyguard. Her glittering silver-hooded Ralph Lauren gown took 600 hours to make.
Nominees Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet and Florence Pugh chat during a commercial break.
Oscar-winner Spike Lee sported a tribute to Kobe Bryant with his touching “24” embroidered on the lapels of his purple tuxedo.
Earlier this year Joaquin Phoenix said that he would wear only one Stella McCartney tuxedo on the 2020 awards red carpet to promote sustainable fashion and he stayed true to his word. He’s appeared dressed in the same black tux for the Oscars, BAFTAs, the Golden Globes and to the SAG Awards. Mara Rooney (right) is dressed in a custom cascading black lace gown by Alexander McQueen, with structured puff shoulders and cutout semi-sheer lace bodice.

Salma Hayek Pinault chats with Eminem who arrived 17 years after winning best original song with an epic performance.
Penelope Cruz with now multi-Oscars winner Bong Joon-Ho. Cruz, who starred in Pain and Glory, an international film nominee, was perhaps the best dressed in a black, satin ballgown straight from Chanel‘s 1995 collection that was reworked and refitted for the Oscar-winning actress. The satin gown was fitted at the bodice and fanned out at the bottom into a voluminous, high-low skirt, poufed-up with crinoline.
Olivia Colman, 2019 Oscar winner for best actress, came with a new blonde look accented by a midnight blue form-fitting gown with puffy teardrop-shaped sleeves and a cape. Her stylist Marcus R. Francis explains how she achieved this new look: “I used Better Natured Moisturizing Shampoo, followed by the Moisturizing Masque after just bleaching her hair to platinum blonde. On towel dried hair, I applied the Better Natured Reshapeable Heat Lotion with a few spritzes of the Beach Texture Spray. I sculpted her hair into pics with my hands, drying it on low speed it started to set her hair into place. For finishing touches I used the Better Natured Strengthening Leave In Cream to piece out any extra kicks on the hair.” Now you have the road map to this stunning style.
“…I’m grateful that so many of you in this room have given me a second chance. And I think that’s when we’re at our best, when we support each other, not when we cancel each other out for past mistakes, but when we help each other to grow, when we educate each other, when we guide each other toward redemption…” “–Joaquin Phoenix”
“…I have to say that this past year of conversations celebrating Judy Garland across generations and across cultures has been a really cool reminder that our heroes unite us. The best among us who inspire us to find the best in ourselves. You know, when they unite us, when we look to our heroes, we agree. And that matters…” “–Renée Zellweger”
