At last, the crown jewel of awards season has arrived: The Oscars are tonight, and the red carpet — as always — is everyone’s last chance either to redeem themselves, go out on a high note, or trip and fall flat on their fashion-faces (or their face-faces, we suppose, which would be more fun).
In the next three whopping hours of celebrity pageantry, we’ll finally find out how amazing Lupita Nyong’o will look (merely great, or balls-out breathtaking); or, on the flip side, whether Dior will talk Jennifer Lawrence into wearing something completely hideous or let her escape with something only mostly hideous. What will Jared Leto do with his hair? Will Cate Blanchett lull us into loving something that would be insane on anyone else? Will someone finally crack under the pressure and beat the mani-cam to death with a stiletto? Break out the boxed wine and join us for the red-carpet live blog.
Plus, click through our slideshow of all the looks on the red carpet, updated constantly throughout the night.
