Pop star Megan Thee Stallion stunned in a dramatic aquatic blue gown at the 2022 Oscars. It was a grand entrance for the pop star who made her debut at the award ceremony’s red carpet.

She said that playing the late Princess Diana in "Spencer" brought on some unexpected emotions. "It just made me feel six feet tall and, like, happy," she told cable channel E!. "She's cool, she's fun and she touches you."

"Dune" star Chalamet also opted to show some skin, wearing only a short-cropped, glitzy blazer paired with dark pants and boots - and no shirt.

Jason Momoa, who also starred in best picture nominee "Dune," donned a blue-and-yellow pocket square in his Tuxedo in support of war-torn Ukraine.

Return to Traditional Venue

After a scaled-down ceremony at Los Angeles' Union Station last year, the Oscars have returned to their traditional venue, which will be filled to about three-quarters capacity with 2,500 guests, allowing for some social distancing. 

"The Power of the Dog" star Kirsten Dunst, accompanied by partner and co-star Jesse Plemons, chose a ruffled red gown for the night that could see her take home the Oscar for best actress in a supporting role.

Earlier in the day, Hollywood veteran Jamie Lee Curtis stepped onto the carpet in a neck-high, glittery Stella McCartney gown.

Curtis announced that during the ceremony she will present a special tribute to late TV and movie icon Betty White, who passed away on Dec. 31, a couple of weeks shy of her 100th birthday.

"I am wearing Stella McCartney, who's an animal rights activist, as Betty White was," Curtis told ABC. "It felt like a perfect way to walk the walk and talk the talk."

Tennis-to-Armani Prive gown

Saniyya Sidney, the young actress who portrayed tennis superstar Venus Williams in the Oscar-nominated biopic "King Richard," stunned in an Armani Prive gown embroidered with floral motifs.

"We talked about boyfriends, old boyfriends," she told cable channel E! about her interactions with tennis great Williams. "We talked about school and how growing up in Compton was like."

Earlier in the day, past award winner Lupita Nyong'o shared photos of herself in a car on the way to the glittering ceremony.
