All the deets on who blew us away with their red carpet worthy beauty looks last night.

Stars gathered in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles last night to partake in one of the most prestigious award ceremonies in Hollywood, the 90th Academy Awards. While the red carpet offered plenty to talk about (all our best dressed picks here), celebs didn't disappoint on the beauty front with stunning hair and makeup looks that complemented their dazzling ensembles.

Hair wise, lobs seem to be the evening's most popular hairdo, with Margot Robbie and Allison Williams showing off chic waves that were incredibly feminine to boot. Saoirse Ronan debuted a shorter, blunt bob tucked behind her ears, while Emma Stone went with a classic, side-parted lob in a strawberry blonde shade. Elsewhere, Black Panther star Danai Gurira channeled her inner badas* with metallic detailing on her close-cropped hair; while Lupita Nyong'o took inspiration from Rwandan culture for her gold-thread braided 'do.

While some stars played it safe with their makeup — including Ronan's no-makeup makeup look, others took a more dramatic route with smokey eyes (Zendaya, Zoey Deutch, Jennifer Lawrence) and a vivid lip colour (Nicole Kidman, Gal Gadot, Greta Gerwig). Below, check out our favourite beauty looks of the night:
