Through time, the Oscars have given us some of the biggest moments in both fashion and pop culture history.

From Michelle Williams in the iconic canary yellow Vera Wang dress to Jennifer Lawrence in Dior (who could forget that fall), Julia Roberts in vintage Valentino and Halle Berry in sheer Elie Saab, there have been many memorable Academy Awards dresses over its history.

Last year marked the full return of the awards since the start of the pandemic, meaning we had a full red carpet of celebrity fashion to enjoy. Ahead of the 2023 awards, we can't wait to see what's in store with all the glamourous celebrity style, as well as who will take home the prestigious accolades for every category.

Here, we've rounded up all of the information you need to know:

When are the 2023 Oscars?

The 95th Academy Awards will take place on 13 March.

After two years of significantly more low-key Awards due to the global pandemic, the 2022 Oscars marked the official return of the business-as-usual ceremony – and naturally, stars including Zendaya, Billie Eilish and Zoe Kravitz made sure to dress the part.

Until the early 2000s, the Oscars took place in March or April until the Academy moved it forward to a date in February. Last year marked the first time the ceremony took place in March - something which is set to be repeated this year.

Who will present at the Oscars?

It was recently announced that Jimmy Kimmel will host the 2023 Oscars, marking his third time fronting the world's biggest showbiz event.

The late-night TV presenter previously hosted the ceremony in 2017 and 2018, and was delighted to be invited back. "Being invited to host the Oscars for a third time is either a great honour or a trap," Kimmel joked in a statement following the news. "Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no."

Where will the Oscars be held?

The Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, as it has every year since 2001.

Who will perform at the 2023 Oscars?

It wouldn't be the Academy Awards without some memorable performances like John Legend and Common's moving 'Glory' number in 2015 or the star-studded Les Miserables performance in 2013 or 2019's hugely talked about rendition of 'Shallows' by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

At present, it's still unknown who will play at the 2023 ceremony, but with the likes of Billie Eilish and Beyoncé performing at last year's Oscars, we have high hopes for a seriously stellar line-up.
