Written by Jasmine Liu

 
This year's Academy Awards strayed away from the traditions, from having no hosts to a big diversity of winners. But of course, the tradition of glamorous dresses was prevalent amongst the sophisticated night. Sparkles, pink, metallic, and showstoppers ran the evening. From Versace to Louis Vuitton, everyone was dressed to the nines ready to watch beautiful performances and cheer for their favorite nominees. Here is a roundup of some of the most stunning looks!
 
Lady Gaga
Mother Monster channelled Audrey Hepburn not only with her voluptuous bun and svelte Alexander McQueen black gown but also with THE Tiffany Diamond. The last person to wear the diamond was Audrey Hepburn herself in the 1961 publicity photos for Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Billy Porter
The Best Dressed List isn't just for the ladies anymore; boring old tuxedos are a thing of the past thanks to fellas like Billy Porter! The "Pose" star stole the spotlight from everyone with this gender-fluid look by Christian Siriano, combining a traditional tux jacket with a flowing ballgown skirt. Such a statement.

Nicholas Hoult
The Favourite actor rocks what almost appears to be the tuxedo version of a wrap dress. The unusual look by Kim Jones is actually inspired by a Dior design from the 1950s. What's old is new again, and we're loving it!
