As the 2022 Oscar Awards get underway, the post-pandemic red carpet is once again swimming in the usual glitz and glamour, with media given the opportunity to photograph some of the most amazing designer dresses in the world.

Her ability to turn Spiderman into merely a ‘plus one’ – and effortless shapeshift between sci-fi epics and record-breaking HBO teen dramas has only cemented her status as the most promising actor of her generation.
On top of this, she is also the best dressed person to have ever made an appearance at the Oscar awards in their 94-year history.
