Take a look at the all the red carpet photos from this year’s star-studded Academy Awards 2022
All eyes were on the Oscars 2022 red carpet this evening, as it returned to its former glory after two years of restricted guest lists and paired-back ceremonies.
Having been hosted both indoors and outdoors at Union Station last year, the awards, hosted on 27 March by trio Regina Hall, Wanda Skyes, and Amy Schumer, returned to the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
While we wait to find out who will win the most coveted statuettes – and take home the $76k goodie bags – we’re taking a look at the red carpet arrivals, and boy are they epic.
Oscars red carpet 2022 trends
Black might be considered a safe option, but not so on this red carpet. The likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Laverne Cox and Kourtney Kardashian proved that black gowns can be daring, sexy and just just a little bit rock’n’roll.
The glitter brigade was out in force, with Jessica Chastain and Lupita Nyong’o leading the way in head-to-toe sequins. Best actress nominee Jessica opted for an ombre gold and lilac Gucci gown, while Lupita paid homage to the golden statuette in a gold dress. Special shout-out to Zendaya and her cropped white shirt with silver skirt combo.
Now they say you shouldn’t wear red on a red carpet, but I disagree. As Tracee Ellis Ross, Ariane DeBose, Kirsten Dunst and Marlee Matlin can attest, you can truly stand out in scarlet gowns.
Pale hues were de rigueur also, with Mila Kunis, Lily James, Zoë Kravitz and Lady Gaga all plumping for pastel pinks and yellows.
Suits and separates were also a big trend on the night, with Kristen Stewart showing off her pinks in a short Chanel suit, and Uma Thurman looking chic in a white shirt and black satin trousers.
It wouldn’t be an Oscars red carpet without a political statement, and stars such as Jamie Lee Curtis showed their support for Ukrainian refugees by wearing blue ribbons.
