Even amidst a global pandemic, the show must go on.

Ahead of the 93rd Academy Awards, celebrities took to the red carpet, stepping in front of the cameras while wearing the latest fashion.

A letter from the Academy told guests to aim for a “fusion of Inspirational and Aspirational” in their attire. In other words, while black-tie wasn’t an absolute necessity, sweatpants were a definite no-no.

Red carpet correspondents kept their social distance from the celebs, and masked guests milled around in the background. But beyond a few minor cosmetic differences, the red carpet felt more normal than expected.
