Now that we know how celebs get fit for the Oscars and what trends superstar stylists hope to see on the holy grail of red carpets, it's almost time to watch it all go down live. If you didn't score a ticket to this Sunday's show and are ready to say peace out to your pajamas and couch, throw on a party dress and some lipstick and hit the damn town, like the vivacious mover and shaker that you are.

Be forewarned that not all of them are open to the public, but we know you have connections.
