Who wore what (and WTF) at the 89th Academy Awards.

BEST: Ruth Negga

Ruth Negga solidifed her rising style star status in this custom Valentino gown, but her most talked about accessory was her red ACLU ribbon. One of the best dressed of the night.

BEST: Emma Stone

Emma gave a throwback to her Cabaret stage days in this gold fringe Givenchy gown.

BEST: Alicia Vikander

Last year's Best Supporting Actress winner took a risk in this black lace Louis Vuitton Victorian-style dress.

BEST: Nicole Kidman

It feels like we've seen Kidman in this type of dress dozens of times, but this Armani Prive number is perfection.

BEST: Meryl Streep

After a much-hyped pre-Oscars fight with Karl Lagerfeld over her choice of Oscars dress, Streep proved she always comes out on top this embellished Elie Saab gown.

BEST: Naomie Harris

oscars.jpg

It's not typical Oscars attire, but this cut-out white midi dress with cape detail makes a case for having fun with red carpet fashion.

BEST: Scarlett Johansson

x10.jpg

She manages to look modern in this pretty princess gown.

WORST: Kirsten Dunst

There's technically nothing wrong with this dress, but it's guilty of being painfully boring.

BEST: Priyanka Chopra

x12.jpg

The Quantico star dared to bare (at the side) in this Ralph and Russo gown, adding a modern twist on the traditional structured dress.

BEST: Charlize Theron

x13.jpg

The plunging neckline is similar to her look last year, but this metallic Dior number is a dream.

BEST: Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner

Does this couple ever get it wrong on the red carpet? Dornan's white Hermes tuxedo helps him stand out from the crowd, but Warner's Emilia Wickstead dress is absolute perfection.

BEST: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

x14.jpg

I'm a little bit obsessed with Jessica's shimmering Kaufman Franco gown, not to mention that standout neckpiece by Tiffany & Co. Her best accessory is her husband, who looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo.

BEST: Halle Berry

The Oscar-winning actress looked out of this world in Atelier Versace, fresh from the runway.

BEST: Michelle Williams

The Best Actress nominee added some edge to her classic monochrome dress with a seriously plunging neckline.

BEST: Taraji P. Henson

Honestly, she looks absolutely amazing.

BEST: Octavia Spencer

Possibly Octavia's best ever red carpet look.

BEST: Chrissy Teigen

Teigen added her own twist to traditional Oscars fashion in this thigh-skimming Zuhair Murad dress.

WORST: Dakota Johnson

It might be Gucci, but this ill-fitting dress does nothing for the Fifty Shades star.

WORST: Cynthia Erivo

The too-bright floral hues distract from the beautiful shape and Erivo's on-point hair and makeup.

BEST: Hailee Steinfeld

She's only 20 years old, but Hailee proved she's here to stay on best dressed lists with this dreamy Ralph & Russo gown.

BEST: Isabelle Huppert

This Armani Prive gown is a modern classic.

WORST: Leslie Mann

Mann took the Disney princess look a step too far.

BEST: Emma Roberts

This vintage Armani Prive dress injects some youth into the red carpet.

BEST: Karlie Kloss

The supermodel's classic movie star look is a winner.

BEST: Riz Ahmed

The Night Of star's blue Ermenegildo Zegna Couture's tuxedo stands out from the crowd.

WORST: Blanca Blanco

It was a risk that didn't pay off.

BEST: Olivia Culpo

(Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)

The former Miss Universe was one of the inexplicable appearances on the red carpet this year, but she made a statement in this plunging Marches dress.

BEST: Sofia Carson

The Disney star's ballgown is impossibly pretty.

BEST: Janelle Monae

Yet another smash hit by one of awards season's best dressed stars.

BEST: Viola Davis

The Best Supporting actress winner went for a classic shape and style in Armani Prive.

WORST: Laura Dern

This otherwise spot-on dress is overshadowed by the unnecessary straps.

BESTL: Darby Steinchfeld

The detail in the Scandal star's Georges Chakra dress is mesmerising.

WORST: Allison Schroeder

Far too busy.

BEST: Felicity Jones

The Oscar nominee does the beautiful ballerina look like no other.

WORST: Mica Levi

It might be reflective of her personal style, but this ill-fitting suit does nothing for the Jackie composer. Chances are composer Mica Levi DGAF about what any of us think though.

WORST: Salma Hayek

u3.jpg

When you have the access that Salma Hayek has, why is this the dress you choose?

BEST: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson

The Rock's velvet tuxedo jacket is a major win.

BEST: Brie Larson

Last year's Best Actress winner pulls off the sexy senorita look like a boss.

WORST: Busy Phillips

Busy's strapless velvet gown does nothing for her knockout figure.

BEST: Sofia Boutella

Sofia Boutella arriving at the 89th Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA.

All eyes were on Sofia in Chanel after Karl Lagerfeld's aforementioned furore with Meryl Streep, but this sequins and feather combination was worth the hype.

BEST: Chris Evans

This blue suit trend is here to stay it would seem.

BEST: David Oyelowo

David's Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo made him one of the best dressed men of the night.

WORST: Miranda July

The director's floral, semi-sheer dress looks out of sorts at the biggest red carpet event of the year.

BEST: Ginnifer Goodwin

I'm still in between two minds with this dress, but it's leaning towards a win primarily because of its similarities to my style crush Ruth Negga's Valentino number.

BEST: Ryan Gosling

For obvious reasons.

BEST: Jennifer Aniston

Although she avoided walking the red carpet, Jennifer looked sensational in a black sequin dress with neckline.
