Here are the stars who shined brightest on the red (or champagne) carpet including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Florence Pugh, and Austin Butler – and the credits keep rolling from there.

The Oscars are being held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California on March 12 starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Jimmy Kimmel is hosting for the third time and for the first time since 2017.

The celebrities nominated for the award show include the crooning Austin Bulter, Brendan Fraser, Ke Huy Quan, Ana de Armas, Michelle Yeoh, and Angela Bassett for acting categories.

Lady Gaga is nominated for the best song as are Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Ludwig Goransson for Lift Me Up from Wakanda Forever.

Gaga was one of the last to arrive, but they saved the best for last as she wore a Versace sheer runway dress that debuted “three days ago” and a Tiffany necklace from 1955.

The baby No. 2 expecting Rihanna will be performing her song which fans are excited about, and the Superbowl singer was late to the carpet but stunned too in all-black with her baby bump showing.

While everyone was hoping for a less drama-free event than last year, the fashion was certainly dramatic and the looks kept coming.

Pre-show host Laverne Cox held her own with the stars she interviewed in a teal-cut-out number with a black cape.

Vanessa Hudgens went for a classic Hollywood number in black-and-white designed by Chanel.

Sofia Carson wore a favorite- Giambattista Valli with Chopard jewelry – “wow, honey!” Laverne said on Sofia’s necklace with 122.9 carats worth of diamonds.

“The security is watching her,” Laverne joked about the Descendants star nominated for Best Original Song for Tell It Like A Woman.

“A whole princess,” one fan tweeted. Another said she “serves every carpet she’s on.”

Jamie Lee Curtis absolutely dazzled in a crystal-covered gown from D&G and advised future acting nominee hopefuls to just: “relax.”

“There’s an incredible amount of self-knowledge that comes with getting older,” she said.

The Best Supporting Actress nominee for Everything Everywhere All At Once was joined by her director husband Christopher Guest.

“Mother arrives at the Oscars,” one fan tweeted on Jamie Lee. Another wrote she’s “Going home with that trophy.

Wandavision star Elizabeth Olsen was a vision in a long, black, Givenchy halter gown with a slicked-back bun and a red lip.

Sigourney Weaver, who reunited with Aliens director James Cameron for Avatar: Way of Water shot into the stratosphere with Givenchy fur that hugged her curves.

Mindy Kaling was out of Office and in vogue with a Vera Wang modern gown that was all white – fans praised her weight transofmration.

Florence Pugh, presenting tonight, said she went for “romantic and punk” and was wearing shorts with a Valentino dress.

“Looking camp right in the eye,” one fan tweeted.

Another posted “her stylist set her up” and a third wrote: “love her down but the hairstyle didn’t suit her IMO.”

The look was referencing Club Kid culture and she paired it with a Tiffany necklace.

Eva Longoria told Laverne Cox she is channeling a “disco ball” with her Oscars tonight.

This is her first time at the Academy Awards as a director.

Although she isn’t nominated tonight, she will be gracing the stage as a presenter.

Austin Butler, nominated for Best Actor for Elvis – said the story he was telling with his traditional tuxedo “was Saint Laurent.”

NOT SUCH A RED CARPET

It’s worth noting that this year, the Oscars red carpet isn’t actually red, marking the first color change since 1961.

Rather, stars are walking a champagne-colored carpet.

Red carpet creative consultants Lisa Love and Raúl Àvila were tasked to reimagine the carpet color, so the talent could better transition from day arrivals to evening, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“This is about getting ready for the golden hour that follows the show,” Love explained.

Host Jimmy told THR that: “we got it for a very good price downtown.”

He also joked the color change was to preempt drama: “People have been asking if there’s going to be any trouble this year, is there going to be any violence this year? I certainly hope not,” he said.

“But if there is, I think the decision to go with a champagne carpet rather than a red carpet shows how confident we are that no blood will be shed,” he morosely added.
