Forget the red carpet. Celebrities entering tonight’s Oscars ceremony turned it into a pink carpet. From bold bright fuchsia to paler shades of blush and almost-nude, the colour reigned supreme over the evening’s fashion choices.

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:

Gemma Chan made us swoon in this bright pink Valentino gown with horizontal ruched sections and a high ruffle neck:
