As usual, the Oscars were a glamorous kaleidoscope of couture fashion on Sunday, February 26, when the 89th Annual Academy Awards aired live from the Dolby Theatre in sunny Los Angeles.

While a few stars stood out in pops of bright color—like Leslie Mann's bumblebee-hued gown and Ruth Negga's amaranth lace frock—many opted for the classic black and white look, like Moana star Auli'i Cravalho's ivory ruffled dress and Taraji P. Henson's stunning, sexy onyx evening gown. (Emma Roberts' plunging monochromatic lace dress combined both, naturally.)
