It was nearly a complete washout as torrential rain threatened to turn last night's glitzy Oscars bash into a damp squib. Special vacuums were brought in to suck the water out of the red carpet before Hollywood's glitterati arrived at the do.
The sodden scene mirrored the 2002 awards when rain caused shampoo on the carpet to turn to foam and ruined the dress of stars such as Kate Winslet and Nicole Kidman.
Still, organisers needn't have feared. The crowds defied the weather and were out in all their splendour for the 80th Academy Awards.
See who was there and what they were wearing, here.
