Oscars Red Carpet 2019

Awards season has officially drawn to a close with the 2019 Academy Awards. The biggest show of the year always brings out the best in the business to Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, all in the hopes of taking home one of the industry’s highest honors. Your favorite stars dressed in their award show best for the special evening. From classic Hollywood glamour—think full skirts and long hemlines—to memorable and current runway looks that are more daring in feel, the attendees made their grand entrances and Vogue reported in real time with our live red carpet coverage. After all, the evening’s most dazzling looks are sure to be tomorrow’s hot topic (or the year’s hot topic). Regina King, who took home an award for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk dazzled in a white Oscar de la Renta dress while Lady Gaga graced the show with an Audrey Hepburn-inspired look and accepted her very first Oscar for “Shallow” (and gave quite a memorable performance with co-star Bradley Cooper). Pink seemed to be the color of the year with stars like Kacey Musgraves, Kiki Layne, Angela Bassett, Gemma Chan, and Jason Mamoa sporting the springtime shade. To see Vogue’s full coverage of the Oscars.
