As always fashion and the Oscars go hand in hand… Here’s the outfits trending on social media.

Olympic medallist and figure skater Adam Rippon was one of the first people to arrive on the red carpet in an unconventional outfit.

Along with a suit he was wearing a Jeremy Scott harness, which was perhaps a nod to the Fifty Shades franchise.

One of the biggest red carpet moments was 86-year-old Rita Moreno arriving in the same dress she wore when she won her Oscar in 1962 for West Side Story.

The 56-year-old dress was made in Manila in the Philippines and included a new neckline but the same black opera gloves.

She changed outfits, wearing an Alexander McQueen dress she wore at the Girls Trip premiere in July and when she hosted Saturday Night Live in November.

Lady Bird star and leading actress nominee Saoirse Ronan and her sugary-pink Calvin Klein gown was a big hit with fashion writers.

Vogue’s style editor Edward Barsamian praised the dress for its “cheerful, optimistic tone”.

“The bow-trimmed gown is poised to sit alongside other memorable Oscar red carpet moments, including Nicole Kidman’s mandarin-inspired Galliano for Dior Couture dress in 1997 and Julia Roberts’ black and white Valentino stunner from 2001,” he wrote.

Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman gave a nod to Wakandan fashion in his custom-made Givenchy suit.

Despite the film being released too late to receive any nominations at this year’s Oscars, it was still the talk of the ceremony.

Fellow cast members Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira also created a fashion moment on the red carpet.
