10 Major Red-Carpet Moments from the Oscars

Our internal Slack channel was going crazy.

By: Jodi Taylor

It’s no secret: Here at Coveteur we love a good red-carpet moment, and the 92nd Academy Awards did not disappoint. Since 6:00 PM tonight, our Slack channels have been ablaze with rapid-fire commentary around who nailed it on the carpet (and obviously who maybe missed the mark a hair, too). Yes, it’s a celebration of the year’s greatest films and performances, but tonight is also a celebration—for us, at least—of the fashion, killer glam, and over-the-top accoutrements that set this carpet apart from so many others throughout the year.

With that, here’s our take (including what we love the most about Brad Pitt) on the carpet and the 10 looks we couldn’t get enough of.
