As we all do our best to find some normality in our lives, the return of a live event in the form of the Oscars was something many of us was looking forward to.

So, when we started to see the stars arriving on their red carpets in their respective home locations, there was a certain buzz to seeing our favourite famous faces coming out for the night!

Zendaya stunned in her flowing yellow dress, which was designed by Pier Paolo Piccioli and glows in the dark.

Meanwhile the incredible Emerald Fennell, who would go on to win Best Original Screenplay for Promising Young Woman, looked beautiful in a gown that will undoubtedly go down in Oscars fashion history, for being subtle yet memorable.

Another favourite look was worn by the one and only Viola Davis. Her styled hair and white Alexander McQueen dress with cutouts were both striking and elegant. Royalty of the red carpet for sure.

There was also a gorgeous little moment when Riz Ahmed and Fatima Farheen Mirza stepped in to help one another, with Ahmed helping fix Mirza's hair for a slew of photographs.

Of course, what the night was really about was exactly who would be going home with an accolade to add to their collection. Whilst Davis was ROBBED, there were a whole host of worthy winners that did see success.

One of those was Chloé Zhao, who became the first woman of colour, the first Chinese woman and, the second woman ever to win the Academy Award for Best Director, following her work on Nomadland.

"This is for anyone who has the faith and the courage to hold on to the goodness in themselves, and to hold on to the goodness in each other," she said, in accepting the reward.

Sir Anthony Hopkins also made some history, picking up the Best Actor award aged 83 for his role in The Father, making him the oldest winner in history.

He expressed his thanks to the Academy, paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman whilst doing so.

As we move slowly but surely back to a world we can recognise, we’re thankful we have nights like this in which we can celebrate some of the world’s most talented entertainers.

Here’s to all of them!
