It’s that time of year again, and everyone’s favourite part of the Oscars - the red carpet - is well and truly underway.

The dazzling, risky, bold and drab are jostling for prominence on the year’s most anticipated arrival stretch, and it’s looking very celestial this year.

With capes for days, cosmic sparkles and floaty ethereal numbers, the sky is the limit, and apparently the place to be this year.

The jury may have finalised their decisions for the awards, but they are well and truly out on the looks trotting in.

Here are the stand-outs of the 92nd Academy Awards.
