ROMAN GRIFFIN DAVIS: The men were mostly in boring, black-and-white combos. But Davis, the 12-year-old star of Jojo Rabbit nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, was charming in his rusty orange suit.PHOTOS: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS, EPA-EFE, REUTERS

GWYNETH PALTROW: See-through does not always mean sexy. Let us take a moment to thank Paltrow for teaching us a lesson in this earwax-coloured Fendi dress. But kudos to her for letting her grey roots show. PHOTOS: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS, EPA-EFE, REUTERS

ANA DE ARMAS: The Knives Out breakout star looked stunning in a gown from Ralph & Russo. The Cuban-Spanish actress paired her look with bold red lips and a low ponytail, channelling classic Hollywood glamour. PHOTOS: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS, EPA-EFE, REUTERS

ZOE KRAVITZ: The actress rocked the notoriously difficult pixie cut in a polka-dot ensemble from Saint Laurent that looked effortlessly stylish on her. Perhaps it was the hair or her innate chic-ness - this look evoked the iconic Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn. PHOTOS: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS, EPA-EFE, REUTERS

JENNIFER LOPEZ: There is genuine reason to worry about Lopez. Sexy, bold and age-defying are terms commonly used to describe her outfits, so this Valentino couture mess of a crinkled, off-season Christmas gift wrap, with a comically huge bow, is cause for concern.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON: Marriage Story's leading lady came in a poufy red dress from Vera Wang. While the colour is lovely on her and the train rather dramatic, the plunging neckline is too wide. And the triangle of illusion netting holding the bust of the dress together is fairly visible. PHOTOS: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS, EPA-EFE, REUTERS

KERRY WASHINGTON: The actress' Altuzarra blazer, skirt and silver chain combo looks painful, impractical and makes a prisoner of her own torso. It begs the question: Why? PHOTOS: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS, EPA-EFE, REUTERS
