Yes to a little Hollywood glamour!

The 93rd Academy Awards are underway in Los Angeles tonight and while the evening is scaled down compared to previous years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve still been blessed with an Oscars red carpet 2021 — and thus, some much needed Hollywood glamour.

Hollywood’s biggest night signals the culmination of the 2021 awards season which has delivered some unforgettable style moments despite the pandemic restrictions and virtual ceremonies. There was the Jane Fonda’s epic vintage moment and Cynthia Erivo’s casual Valentino Couture slay at the 2021 Golden Globes, not to mention Tracee Ellis in Schiaparelli Couture at the NAACP Image Awards. But the Oscars are where some of the most major looks are debuted (just check out this roundup of the most iconic Oscars outfits ever — including Cher in Bob Mackie and Céline Dion’s unforgettable backwards Dior tuxedo look — for proof.)

2021 nominees including Viola Davis, Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Kirby, Andra Day and Carey Mulligan are expected to make an appearance at the 2021 Oscars and, yes, the preceding red carpet.
