Star style at the Oscars 2017 red carpet

AUSTRALIAN actor Nicole Kidman has turned heads on the Oscars red carpet, wearing one of the trends of the night: a nude-coloured dress.

The Oscar nominee is striking in a skin-coloured body-con dress.

But it was one actor's seriously high thigh split that turned heads for the wrong reasons.

American actor Blanca Blanco is wearing a dramatic, puff-sleeved gown with a split right up to her, um, hip, which led to an embarrassing (and inevitable) wardrobe malfunction.

Stars are getting political, sporting blue ribbons as a show of support for the American Civil Liberties Union in the wake of President Trump's controversial travel ban.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss, actor Ruth Negga and best original song nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda are all wearing the ribbons.

Culpo's one-of-a-kind Marchesa for Stella Artois gown featuring beads made from the Stella Artois limited-edition chalices. Her gown was made by Marchesa as part of a push to raise awareness for the global water crisis.

Meanwhile, Felicity Jones resembled a ballerina.
