2024 Oscars Red Carpet: The Best Fashion And Looks

The red carpet for the 96th Academy Awards is live and the brightest stars have lined up for up to celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night. Already breaking news on this iconic red carpet: Vanessa Hudgens (who is one of the pre-show hosts for the evening) debuted her brand new baby bump, publicly announcing her pregnancy with husband and baseball player Cole Tucker.

A source tells Variety that nominees and guests will be toasting with tequila during the show (the shots were hidden under their seats before the broadcast) and dancing the night away in their very best couture and custom made ensembles (“American Fiction” director and Oscar nominee Cord Jefferson teased his exclusively made Zegna suit before the ceremony online.) Other exciting looks include Lily Gladstone (who is wearing a Gucci gown collaboration with Joe Big Mountain of Ironhouse Quillwork). Also in Gucci will be Ryan Gosling, who will perform “I’m Just Ken” from the nominated film “Barbie.” This year’s host is Jimmy Kimmel, marking his fourth overall gig and second consecutive time hosting, and presenters include Ariana Grande, Steven Spielberg, Rita Moreno, Brendan Fraser, Michelle Yeoh, Zendaya and Jennifer Lawrence.

More from Variety

The nominees who will pause for cameras include Emma Stone (“Poor Things”), Colman Domingo (“Rustin”), Bradley Cooper (“Maestro”), Cillian Murphy (“Oppenheimer”), Jeffrey Wright (“American Fiction”) Sandra Hüller (“Anatomy of a Fall”), Carey Mulligan (“Maestro”), Robert Downey Jr. (“Oppenheimer”) Mark Ruffalo (“Poor Things”) and many more.

Also in attendance is Grace Linn, a 100-year-old woman whose speech about book burning inspired the Oscar-nominated documentary short, “The ABCs of Book Banning.”
