1. Olivia Culpo: Olivia Culpo was truly a vision in a dress created in partnership with Marchesa and Stella Artois. The gown is meant to bring awareness to the global water crisis, and is made from — get this! — glass challis pieces to represent tears. (Photo via Kevin Mazur /Getty)

2. Ruth Negga: The Loving actress, who is one of the night’s seven actors of color up for an award, wore a custom Valentino lace dress with an Irene Neuwirth crown and ruby earrings, but it was perhaps her ACLU blue ribbon that made the biggest statement of all. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
