While everyone might be hankering to see who takes home the coveted little gold men, the beauty stakes are high on Oscar night too. 

From looks that honour classic, Hollywood glamour to the refreshingly unique takes that steer trends for months to come, we can't get enough of the beauty looks that adorn the red carpet on Oscar night.

Some stars go big, some keep it understated, while some end up creating what could be only referred to as a beauty moment, earning a coveted spot on 'best of Oscar beauty lists' long after the night itself has rolled credits. Looks such as these ones:
