The Oscars, the most celebrated event in the film industry, is not only a stage for awarding excellence but also an exhibition of the most unforgettable beauty looks of the year. As expected, the 95th Academy Awards didn't disappoint, with A-list celebrities like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Michelle Yeoh gracing the event with jaw-dropping looks. The event was a spectacle of sculptural hair moments, modern takes on Old Hollywood glamour, and regal elegance on the champagne carpet.
