The 2021 Oscars red carpet certainly brought out some surprises. Never did we expect Carey Mulligan, who has been recently devoted to Prada, to surprise in a Valentino Haute Couture two-piece set consisting of a bandeau top and ballroom skirt. And Andra Day, sticking to her slinky gold "uniform," revealed just about the most daring thigh-high slit we've seen in a while. Even though we weren't surprised to find Valentino brand ambassador Zendaya in a number from the fashion house, who knew her full look would be glow-in-the-dark — or that her Bulgari diamonds would add up to a whopping 183 carats valued at over $6 million?!

It's plain to see that celebrities and their stylists pulled out all the stops for the culmination of a virtual award season, and we're just here to celebrate their bold choices. Ahead, be sure to check out H.E.R.'s purple Dundas ensemble, LaKeith Stanfield's '70s-inspired Saint Laurent jumpsuit, and Regina King's metallic blue Louis Vuitton column gown with intricate sleeves we could admire all night — then choose a favorite outfit, if you can. Here's fair warning: it's a glamorous decision we're asking you to make, but it is definitely not an easy one.
