The Oscars' red carpet goes champagne for the first time in 62 years

For the first time since 1961, the traditional Oscars "Red Carpet" will be a different colour. This year, the organisers have rolled out an orange or champagne coloured carpet.

The decision to change the colour came from creative consultants Lisa Love, a longtime Vogue contributor, and Raúl Àvila, the creative director for the glamorous Met Gala in New York.

This year the carpet will be covered, in part to protect the stars and cameras from the weather, but also to help turn the arrivals into an evening event. 

The 95th Oscars red or "orange carpet opens Sunday at 3:30 pm at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony begins at 8 pm.
