Zendaya made quite the entrance on the Oscars red carpet in a Valentino ensemble.

Billie Eilish never misses the mark on the red carpet, and her manicures are no exception. To compliment her dramatic black Gucci ruffled gown, the singer opted for extra-long, glossy nude nails that beautifully paired with her sparkling rings.

Jessica Chastain’s Gucci gown was the star of the show at the awards, but we couldn’t help but admire her rose gold chrome nails that perfectly complemented her romantic gold-and-violet dress. The actress’ makeup and hair were also noteworthy. The glowy complexion, nude pink lips and ponytail—all get big ticks from us.

6. Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o had all eyes on her as she walked the red carpet in a gold Prada gown. The actress’ chic fishtail loc updo was one of the best hairstyles of the night, and her manicure was equally amazing, proving that simple nude nails can also make a statement.

We can always count on red carpet queen Cynthia Erivo for gorgeous nail art inspiration, and this year’s Oscars was no exception. She went with a long, square black French manicure that amplified her Louis Vuitton look complete with a zip jacket and long skirt.
