Everything is always better with a bow on top.

While the 2018 Oscars red carpet saw plenty of sequins, beads and bold lips, as expected, there was another trend that made just as strong of a statement: bows.

Whether it was Ladybird actress Saoirse Ronan wearing one giant iteration on the back of her pink Calvin Klein dress or musician St. Vincent wearing an edgier half-version on her pant-less Saint Laurent ensemble, the traditionally feminine accouterments channeled a range of vibes. What used to be a pretty detail now can be the focal of an ensemble. Please see Nicole Kidman's midnight-blue Armani Privé gown as evidence.

Better yet, keep scrolling to see all the stars who wore some type of bow on the Oscars red carpet.
