Stars gather tonight at Los Angeles's Dolby Theatre to celebrate the best in film at the 89th annual Academy Awards. And while the star-studded spectacle has us gathering around screens to witness who will take home the gold, we're also eager to see how our favourite leading ladies and nominees make their entrances. If Hollywood history is made at the Academy Awards, it's on the red carpet where we get the indelible visual. Oscars red carpet beauty looks from the archives become synonymous with our collective memories of today's icons when they were still the ingenues of yesteryear, and 2017's lineup of leading ladies is a mix of veterans and fresh faces.
Scroll below to see the most head-turning beauty looks from the 89th Academy Awards.
The actress, nominated for best actress for her role in Loving, was on fire in a bold red ensemble complemented by a coordinating red lip and warm eye shadow.
Culpo lit up the red carpet with an iridescent violet eye that electrified an otherwise subdued beauty look with a matte nude lip and slicked-back hair.
The French actress nominated for her role in Elle stepped out in a classic red carpet beauty look of side-parted wavy locks and a red lip, modernized by a dramatic ear climber.
Jones was fresh-faced with a light coral pout and a black-lined eye.

Roberts looked every part the screen siren with polished side-swept locks and a bold red lip.
The model glowed in coral-toned lip and eye makeup and highlighter.

We love the subtle '60s feel to Salma Hayek's hair, plus her eyeliner is on point.
