Rebel dazzles in glam Oscars gown

 

Hollywood's brightest stars are beginning to flock to the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, where the 2020 Academy Awards will soon get underway.

1917, Joker, Parasite, Judy, Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood and The Irishman are all among the favourites to take home statues at today's Oscars ceremony - but before all of that gets announced, all eyes are on the red carpet.

Rebel Wilson, who stars in Best Picture-nominated JoJo Rabbit, is an absolute knockout in her ultra-glam gold sequinned Oscars gown.

Director Spike Lee, one of today's presenters, turned his suit into a walking tribute for late NBA legend Kobe Bryant, who tragically died in a helicopter crash last month.

Lee donned a customised purple and yellow ensemble in honour of Bryant's team, the LA Lakers, and had the player's jersey number stitched onto the front and back.

Meanwhile, in the first "huh?!" invitation of the Oscars, Rob Kardashian's ex-fiance Blac Chyna has turned up in a daring black velvet gown, which by my count has two very significant wardrobe malfunction danger zones.
