We've made it! Another awards season has come to an end, culminating in the Academy Awards — known unquestionably to be the most important red carpet of all, but not necessarily the most adventurous. Still, you can bet that tonight's looks were the most considered of all of 2019's many glamorous film, television and music events thus far. Celebrities and their stylists worked overtime, pulling looks from the best designers, some of which walked the runway just weeks ago.

The evening's looks were primarily pretty safe, but there were a few fashion moments we thought were special: Tessa Thompson sparkled in her custom Chanel couture; Melissa McCarthy looked chic in a pants look by Brandon Maxwell, who also created Sarah Paulson's perfect pink gown; Gemma Chan's and Kacey Musgrave's pink gowns were also true gems, while Constance Wu stunned as the only guest we know of to choose bright yellow. "Eighth Grade" star Elsie Fisher might have looked the coolest of all, though, in her Thom Browne suit.

Men provided some excellent suit moments as well, from Rami Malek in Saint Laurent to Stephan James in Etro.

See all that and the rest of the night's best-dressed stars in the gallery below (and don't forget to check out the best beauty looks as well).
