Hit: Lead actress nominee Scarlett Johansson is the epitome of “va-va-voom” in a pewter Oscar de la Renta satin gown with a fringed bodice. The intricately hand-draped corset and bias-cut skirt represented more than 300 hours of craftsmanship. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Hit: Oscar winner Renée Zellweger wears a custom Armani Privé white silk, one-shoulder column gown with an open asymmetrical neckline accented by a crystal-embroidered tubular detail. The luminous gown, highlighted with a singular dramatic long sleeve, is entirely embroidered in clear paillettes and beads with subtle pale pink and blue thread detail. (Jay L.

Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
On the fence: Grammy winner and Oscar performer Billie Eilish continues her trailblazing (and logo-centric) fashion in an explosion of Chanel. It’s right on brand for the singer, but we wonder: Is it a good fit for the Oscars red carpet? (Al Seib / Los Angeles Times)
Hit: “Bombshell” nominee Margot Robbie floats onto the carpet in an off-the-shoulder gown by Chanel that includes bow details at the sleeves and an enormous brooch that almost distracts from a very chic look. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)

Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)

Charlize Theron wows in a stunning black Dior Haute Couture gown with a one-sided dropped shoulder strap topped off by a Tiffany High Jewelry Collection Fall 2020 necklace.

Clendenin/Los Angeles Times)
Hit: Sigourney Weaver is pure Hollywood glamour in a diaphanous emerald column gown with a Greek-inspired rope belt by Dior Haute Couture. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
Miss: Presenter Kristen Wiig wore a crêpe armure coat and dress with taffetas volants and Valentino red tulle from the Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2020 collection. Unfortunately, we were left trying to see the comedy genius inside the plethora of fabric. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
On the fence: Legendary songwriter and nominee Diane Warren definitely has a signature look, which continued Sunday evening in the form of a sequined silver blazer and black trousers.

Miss: “Little Women” cast member Soirse Ronan is partly invoking the vintage glam look sported by Cardi B last award season in this “oyster on the quarter-shell” gown by Gucci.

She completed her look with Gucci High Jewelry. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)

Hit: “Superstore” actress America Ferrera is ethereal in a red pleated chiffon gown by Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition, but it’s her golden headband that has us soundly in her corner. (Jay L. Clendenin / Los Angeles Times)
