The 92nd Academy Awards rolled out the red carpet at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre on Sunday, February 9, 2020, and the show did not disappoint. Although the lead-up to the ceremony was steeped in controversy — from the all-male Best Director category to what the Daily Beast described as "the aggravating domination of Joker" — the show itself ended up being full of bright spots.

Just some of the highlights included Janelle Monáe's high-octane opening number (even if she did have what Cosmopolitan called "the most relatable" wardrobe malfunction, which she handled like a pro), Brad Pitt kicking off the string of awards by taking home his first-ever golden man for Best Supporting Actor in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Parasite making Hollywood history as the first-ever foreign-language film to win Best Picture.

Also notable was the endless parade of A-listers braving the rain and trying their best in the sartorial department. The biggest trend of the night was definitely sustainability while pink dominated in terms of color. Here are all of the best- and worst-dressed stars we saw at the 2020 Oscars.

Scarlett Johansson showed off her ink on the Oscars red carpet

Scarlett Johansson was nominated for not one but two Oscars this year, as Marriage Story landed her a Best Actress nom while Jojo Rabbit snagged her a Best Supporting Actress nod. According to CNN, the last time such a feat was accomplished was over a decade ago when Cate Blanchett was nominated for Elizabeth: The Golden Age and I'm Not There in 2008. Just like Blanchett, Johansson went home without a trophy for either category, but that didn't mean she wasn't dressed like a winner.  

The 35-year-old wowed in a metallic Oscar de la Renta gown (per Page Six) that was certainly worthy of her history-making status as a double nominee. Featuring a bodice made of mesh covered in beautifully draped silver strands and a champagne-colored skirt with a short train, the dress made Johansson glow. Adding to the drama were her sparkling diamond drop earrings, a diamond bracelet, and her massive engagement ring. The gown was also a perfect choice to show off her massive back tattoo, which consists of "a series of roses in honor of her daughter, Rose," as well as a lamb next to the flowers, and "a large owl" on her ribcage that just peeked out over the top of the low-cut back.
