The glitz! The glamour! The gowns! The gentlemen in suits! The most important night of award season is upon us, and the stars are pulling out all the stops. Unlike some of the other virtual award shows this season, the 93rd Academy Awards have a dress code and a strict "no Zoom" policy, so we get to see the stars in all their glory in person. We blame Jason Sudeikis and hoodie gate (not that we didn't so appreciate that).

As much as we loved his sweatshirt, we're not complaining. Of course, being the fashion fiends we are, we staffers at InStyle are always ecstatic for the red carpet, and we're just glad this one isn't taking place over Zoom. Tonight's jaw-dropping looks, from Alan Kim's adorable suit to Andra Day's gold gown, are giving us major fashion FOMO — I mean, I'm writing this in my sweats from my couch.

But these breath-taking and dreamy looks also give us a glimmer of hope for what is to come post-pandemic. A light at the end of the WFH-uniform-tunnel, if you will (Seriously, I may show up to work in a gown on the first day back.) Click through to see some of our favorite looks of the night.
