And it’s not just that – it’s the details that count. The clutch bag? Who’s starting a new nail-colour trend? And that’s before we even get started on the actual award winners.
But what about the journey from dress selection to the actual event? Slaves to Instagram and Snap chat, celebs heavily document their awards preparation process. Potential Oscars leading lady Emma Stone has already revealed her pre-show eye mask essentials, while Eva Longoria loves to give fans a glimpse into the full day of work her team spend on her look.
