After a long awards season, the final stop will be at the 2023 Oscars (95th Academy awards) on March 12. The ceremony will highlight some of the best films of 2022, including Top Gun: Maverick, Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Banshees of Inisherin, and Tár.
Before the ceremony, Hollywood’s hottest stars and A-listers will walk the red carpet. Celebrities will be dressed in fashion’s top brands from head to toe as they pose for photos and stop for interviews. However, this year marks a huge change for the Oscars. The carpet’s color will be champagne, not red. This marks the first time since 1961 that the carpet isn’t red.
Here’s everything you need to know about the red carpet at the 2023 Oscars.
