America Ferrera bid a fond awards season farewell to Barbie on the Oscars red carpet Sunday in a stunning, sparkly Atelier Versace gown in the film's signature pink, while Rita Moreno wore a huge smile and a statement black gown from Badgley Mischka. Hollywood's big night in Los Angeles included few fashion risks, with many sticking to classic silhouettes, black, and other standard colors, the AP reports. Others offered an under-the-sea-vibe in soft seafoam colors with mermaid crystals and shell-like designs. Emma Stone was in the sea camp in a soft pastel strapless look with a faint shell pattern in mint and a wide peplum at the waist. It was Louis Vuitton. Hailee Steinfeld in Elie Saab was also sea-like in sheer ethereal blue-green with wings attached at the wrist. Lupita Nyong'o was sea-adjacent in feathers and sequins by Armani Privé.

Brittany Snow offered a refreshing show of color in a bright strapless custom Mônot dress paired with a statement choker. Cynthia Erivo, in custom Louis Vuitton, shut down the carpet in emerald green lamb leather, dinosaur-like spikes along the back of a large-shouldered jacket. Emily Blunt and hubby John Krasinski matched in off-white, she in Schiaparelli couture with shoulders that floated above her body, that extended silhouette touch a mini-trend of the night. Anya Taylor-Joy was full shell in a Dior Haute Couture strapless look in a sparkly scallop design. Da'Vine Roy Randolph, on the top of her fashion game this awards season, wore an A-line pale blue tulle gown from Louis Vuitton with oversized sleeves embellished with tulle fringe. Ariana Grande also went big in a puffy pink gown that also had huge sleeves on a matching coat.

Lavender had a moment on a few. So did Billie Eilish in a Chanel schoolgirl look with a black jacket, pattern skirt, white socks, and black Mary Janes. She and others on the carpet wore red pins supporting a ceasefire in Gaza. Lily Gladstone won the jewelry game. She paired her midnight blue velvet gown with a Bulgari necklace in white gold with turquoise touches and blue oval tanzanite at the center. The Godzilla Minus One group, meanwhile, showed up carrying toy monsters. Vanessa Hudgens brought along one special accessory. She revealed her baby bump under a long body-hugging gown she wore to host ABC's pre-show coverage. Click through some of the looks in our gallery.
