Oscars 2017: What Emma Stone, Ruth Negga, Lily-Rose Depp and More Wore Before the Academy Awards

Between countless dinners and parties celebrating Oscars nominees and the smaller awards ceremonies that act as the unofficial warmup acts for the Academy Awards, Oscars weekend is filled with plenty of opportunities for actors to get a bit of red carpet practice before the big night. At the Independent Spirit Awards, American Honey actress Sasha Lane made a statement in a Louis Vuitton ensemble paired with a jersey reading “Black Lives Matter” in bold print across the front; across the pond, Soko, Best Actress nominee Isabelle Huppert, and Chanel darling Lily-Rose Depp all stunned on the red carpet of the César Awards. And while designers as varied as Erdem and Rodarte were represented, this week has really been all about Karl Lagerfeld. The only thing that would make these looks that much better? An Oscar statuette might be the perfect accessory. See all the best looks from the Oscars pre-events, from Brie Larson in Alexander McQueen to Rowan Blanchard in Rodarte, here.
