Margot Robbie, Chanel's newest ambassador, is wearing the couture version of Nancy Kerrigan. Chic, sophisticated and from the right side of the (fashion) tracks.

Jennifer Garner is blue-skying herself. This is "Hope Hicks: The HBO special" right here.

Emily Blunt didn't sync her iCal. It's Oscars today, Crown season 3 casting call tomorrow.

Lupita Nyong'o

Representing Wakanda: Lupita Nyong'o. Now that is a power sash. Top 5 finish for sure in this Versace number.

Right at this moment Gwyneth Paltrow is typing into Instagram: "Thank you Saoirse Ronan for validating my style choices of 1999 #first"

It's bow season and no one does it better than our Nic. This Armani Prive ensemble has more bows and tape than the Myer Gift Emporium but it works. A round of applause please.

Who wore it best (in Dior) J.Law or Joan of Arc or Darryl Hannah in Splash

Emma Stone

"Do you have some sort of business woman special?" Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton is what happens when you have an AGM at 4 and the Oscars at 5.

Greta Gerwig just served seeded mustard better than Shake Shack. 

Tiffany Haddish

Girls Trip's Tiffany Haddish told Ryan Seacrest she chose her outfit to "honour [her] people" after losing her Eritrean-born dad last year.

Attention Greens of Tasmania, maybe you should recruit environmentalist Ed Begley Jr for the next election. Pretty sure he's not up to much as he just caught the train to Hollywood's night of nights. Either he's greener than Bob Brown or Uber's surcharge is ridic in LA tonight. 

Andra Day

Glad to see something survived the storming of Versailles. Good job Andra Day.

Just want dresses? Here are all the arrivals so far.

St Vincent is all of us that have been in a fitting room while the assistant keeps busting in to see "How you're going for sizes" so you pull on everything to conceal some dignity.

Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault

Now this is this shape of water Salma Hayek! Cascading lilac sequins, pearls and more than $4.2 million worth of diamonds. She gets extra points also for wearing something that could sit in both the fashion and homewares section of David Jones. This Gucci creation resembles a chandelier found in a Westworld saloon and I want it in my overpriced studio.

Eiza Gonzalez

Baby Driver baddie Eiza Gonzalez has come good in this Ralph Lauren gown. This colour is perfection and when you are this conventionally attractive you can get away with wearing a full length swimsuit to the Oscars.

Rita Moreno

In a clap back to fast fashion, Rita Moreno, is wearing her Oscars gown from 1962. Unlike misogyny, martinis at lunch and Pigs in blankets this look has really stood the test of time.

Jane Fonda

It's positively presidential, she's the leader we need right now. There is no boning, this is a result of "Feeling the burn!" for 50-years.

Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino, two of the women whose careers suffered road blocks by Harvey Weinstein, are here.

This duo is giving me ALP conference '07 flashbacks from that time K.Rudd introduced himself as "My name is Kevin... I'm here to help". Turns out old mate couldn't but these two glamours - Romy and Michele 2.0 - have helped and empowered hundreds of women in Hollywood and beyond thus far.
