THE A-listers have begun arriving at the 95th annual Academy Awards.
Here are the stars who shined brightest on the red carpet including Vanessa Hudgens, and Laverne Cox – and the credits keep rolling from there.

Jimmy Kimmel is hosting the Oscars for the third time this year and for the first time since 2017.
Steven Spielberg is nominated for directing for The Fabelmans, going up against Everything Everywhere All At Once’s duo for that award (as well as 10 other noms).
But the fashion was just as winning as the event itself.
HERE COME THE WINNING LOOKS
Pre-show host Laverne Cox upstaged some of the stars she interviewed in a teal-cut-out number with matching studs and a black cape.
Vanessa Hudgens went for a classic Hollywood number in black-and-white designed by Chanel.
Sofia Carson wore a favorite- Giambattista Valli with Chopard jewelry – “wow, honey!” Laverne said on Sofia’s necklace with 122.9 carats worth of diamonds.
“The security is watching her,” Laverne joked about the star nominated for Best Original Song for Tell It Like A Woman.
Jamie Lee Curtis dazzled in a crystal-covered gown and advised future acting nominee hopefuls to just: “relax.”
NOT SUCH A RED CARPET
It’s worth noting that this year, the Oscars red carpet isn’t actually red, marking the first color change since 1961.
Rather, stars are walking a champagne-colored carpet.
Red carpet creative consultants Lisa Love and Raúl Àvila were tasked to reimagine the carpet color, so the talent could better transition from day arrivals to evening, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“This is about getting ready for the golden hour that follows the show,” Love explained.
Host Jimmy told THR that: “we got it for a very good price downtown.”
He also joked the color change was to preempt drama: “People have been asking if there’s going to be any trouble this year, is there going to be any violence this year? I certainly hope not,” he said.
“But if there is, I think the decision to go with a champagne carpet rather than a red carpet shows how confident we are that no blood will be shed,” he morosely added.
