Cher, Whoopi Goldberg, Gwyneth Paltrow’s nipples… yes, crimes against fashion have been committed at Hollywood self-love fest, the Oscars. So who is going to win gongs for their gowns this year? And which men and women are going to make a fashion faux pas?

Ruth Negga

The Lady in Red blends into the carpet with a Victorian-style gown by Valentino. Top marks for the dark berry lipstick and smoky eyes.

The Best Actress nominee for Loving is one of the first to wear a blue ribbon for the American Civil Liberties Union’s new ‘Stand with ACLU’ campaign.

It’s a symbol of solidarity with the nonpartisan, nonprofit organisation which works to protect individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the US Constitution.

Sofia Boutella

The Algerian dancer, actress and musician looks absolutely stunning in Chanel. The roughly chopped bangs and ear bling stop her from looking too fairytale princess.
