Tidying guru Marie Kondo sparked joy in her flower-studded Jenny Packham dress:

Was there a pop culture inspiration behind the pink carpet? Twitter seemed to think Killing Eve‘s contract killer villain Villanelle might have been on the mood board for some of the Oscars looks:

And it’s true—Villanelle’s frothy Molly Goddard dress did seem to have some doppelgangers.

Just look at Maya Rudolph in this caped floral number:

And Helen Mirren in this twirly-swirly tulle confection from Schiaparelli:
