OSCARS 2020: Best dressed stars shine despite SOGGY red carpet

Stars shined bright at the Academy Awards on Sunday afternoon despite rain drenching the red carpet.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge, 34, looked like an old-fashioned movie star as she modeled a plunging white wrap dress with ruffles with a nicely placed red floral accent on her hip.

And Kristin Cavallari resembled Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief in her strapless powder blue dress with a perfectly chosen diamond necklace and matching earrings. 

Other early birds included Blac Chyna and Billy Porter.
