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.

The bromance between James Ivory, director and screenwriter of Call Me by Your Name and star of the film, Timothee Chalamet continued at tonight’s Oscars.
Ivory, 89, who is nominated for Original Screenplay, wore a shirt with lead actor nominee Chalamet’s face on it.
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.
Tiffany Haddish wore an embroidered cape, headdress and dress called a “zuria”.
The comedian and actress, who is presenting an award tonight, explained what was behind her traditional outfit.
“My father is from Eritrea, and he passed away last year, and he said that if ever I make it here I have to honour my people. So here I am!”

Haddish caused a stir again as a presenter on stage with Maya Rudolph.
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.
She joked on the show that she was an “outfit repeater” and said the dress would be making another appearance and the comedian kept her word.
Call Me by Your Name stars Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer caused a storm when they appeared on the red carpet together.
Hammer was too ill to attend Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards and appeared on Chalamet’s phone on FaceTime at the ceremony.
Fans were extremely pleased to see the pair reunited on the Oscars red carpet.
Unlike the Golden Globes and Baftas, the Oscars were awash with bright colours, with stars making a nod towards the Time’s Up movement with pin badges.
Tonight’s fashion showcased glamorous designs, with pastels and embellishment on the top of the hot list.
Elisabeth Moss, Gina Rodriguez, Salma Hayek, Sally Hawkins and Mira Sorvino all reflected this trend, which got the seal of approval on social media.
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.
Marvel’s Black Panther also got an honourable mention during the ceremony, with Jimmy Kimmel praising it for its commercial success and ground-breaking content.
Lupita Nyong’o dazzled on the #Oscars red carpet in an African-inspired look in a glittery, gold gown. The black and gold beaded Versace dress featured a sash across her bodice, and the “Black Panther” actress wore gold accessories braided into her hair. https://t.co/FdMWH2SB9Npic.twitter.com/nghqwQvRUP
