Get a behind-the-scenes look at the glam before the Oscars storm

Awards season is coming to a close — but not before the most anticipated night of all, the Oscars! The biggest stars in Hollywood have saved their best looks for last — and tonight, they’re finally revealing them. Before they hit the red carpet, they spend hours (and sometimes days) getting ready — and of course, they gave us a look inside the process on social media. See how Jessica Biel, Chrissy Teigen and more stars prepped for the big night, below.

Sofia Vergara had a few dazzling jewelry options to choose from, thanks to jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz.

Jessica Biel will hit the carpet to support husband Justin Timberlake, who’s set to perform tonight along with John Legend and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Early this morning, the actress got her workout on so she could indulge in some post-Oscars pizza, because “the need for after party pizza is REAL.”

Not long after, Biel started getting red carpet ready with her “magicians” (otherwise known as her glam squad), hair stylist Adir Abergel and makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua.

Chrissy Teigen‘s also been sharing a behind-the-scenes look at herself going glam. Even her 10-month-old daughter Luna joined in on the fun, posing with her mom in a star-covered onesie with Legend’s 2015 Oscar as a prop.
