The best fashion looks at the Oscars night

The famous carpet may have changed colour in Hollywood for this year's Oscars - it was described as champagne, instead of being the traditional red. But the glamour on show was the same as ever.
Cate Blanchett had the eighth Oscar nomination of her career. Her elegant blue velvet outfit featured a ribbon made by refugees as part of an initiative from the United Nations refugee agency, reported BBC on Monday.
The decision to change the red carpet after 62 years was made by a creative consultant, who explained that a "champagne" coloured carpet would help with "the change from daytime arrivals to an elegant evening setting".
In a reference to Will Smith's slap last year, host Jimmy Kimmel quipped beforehand: "I think the decision to go with a champagne carpet rather than a red carpet shows how confident we are that no blood will be shed."
