Meanwhile, Zendaya and Uma Thurman brought some formality to the event, with sharp shirt and skirt combinations.

Zendaya, the Spider-Man: No Way Home star, wore a Valentino design, and Pulp Fiction's Thurman wore a Bottega Veneta two-piece. Spencer actress Kristen Stewart followed suit, with a more casual shirt, short and blazer look by Chanel.

The Oscars, held at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, are back to full-force this year, with Covid-19 vaccine requirements for all those in attendance. Requirements for those attending the event include mandatory PCR tests for performers and presenters.

This year, for the first time in 35 years, the show has three hosts, with Amy Schumer, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes sharing the role. It is the first time hosting for all three women.
