The most glamorous night on Hollywood's social calendar has kicked off as the stars take to the red carpet for the 90th Academy Awards.

After the red carpet blackout that dominated the Golden Globes, Hollywood's biggest stars are shining bright at the Oscars, opting for light and bright colours.

Champagne is the order of the day - when it comes to gowns at least. Allison Williams, Giuliana Rancic and Abbie Cornish are just a few of the stars sporting the pale hue, pairing it with delicate embellishments and simple accessories.
