For Hollywood’s biggest night on Sunday, Mulligan stepped out in a gold sequin bandeau teamed with a coordinating billowing skirt from Valentino. The skirt featured a high-waisted constructed and flowed out around her.

While her feet were hidden, Mulligan’s footwear of choice was a pair of heels from Sophia Webster. Called the Rita Platform Sandals, the shoes are of a shimmery champagne hue and feature glittering details throughout. The heels come with a $688 price tag at Farfetch.com.

Day also opted for a gold look, wearing a shimmery drape dress. The gown featured a high slit, a cutout design at the waist and two straps that fell on the right shoulder.

The toga-like look was complimented by Day’s effortlessly curly updo and jewel drop earrings. Day also accessorized with a chain bracelet and a gold clutch. As for footwear, Day opted for gold strappy sandals. The shoes featured crisscross straps across the toe and sat atop a stiletto heel. Day has been nominated for her role in “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.”
