Everyone seemed to get the Neely O’Hara memo at the 2016 Academy Awards: If your dress wasn’t sparkly, you were presumably denied entry to the Dolby Theatre. Best Supporting Actress winner Alicia Vikander dazzled, stunned, and all those other press-release verbs in canary yellow Louis Vuitton with a liberal sprinkling of silver sequins, while Saoirse Ronan opted for all-over emerald paillettes by Calvin Klein Collection. They were joined by fellow glitter fanatics Daisy Ridley in Chanel Haute Couture, Emily Blunt in Prada, Brie Larson in a shiny Gucci belt, and Naomi Watts in a twinkly Armani column.

Other trends of the night included plunging necklines, sky-high slits, and, courtesy of Lady Gaga, the wonder that is “secret pants.” Click through the slideshow to see all the night’s hits and misses.
