These mamas came prepared for the biggest night in Hollywood.

best-dressed at the 2020 Oscars

The 2020 Oscars red carpet may have started with rain but that didn't stop our favorite celebrity mamas from hitting the scene in stunning Hollywood glamour. Historically, the Oscars are known for A-listers wearing the most sought-after designers, as it celebrates the best in film—and this year didn't disappoint. From satin and sequins to pearls and vintage gowns, these mamas brought their A-game, and possibly, the most elegant looks in Hollywood so far this year.

Check out the best-dressed mamas from the 2020 Oscars:

America Ferrera

America Ferrera Oscars 2020

Is there anything more stunning than a baby bump on the red carpet? America Ferrera, who is the voice of Astrid Hofferson in the film How To Train Your Dragon: Hidden World wore an Alberta Ferretti dress, Lisa Eisner jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Jennifer Behr headpiece. Gorgeous!

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman Oscars 2020

We love statement pieces and Natalie Portman's Dior cape was a total standout. The black cape featured the names of eight women directors who were overlooked, including Greta Gerwig, Lorene Scafaria and Lulu Wang. "I wanted to recognize the women who were not represented for their incredible work this year in a subtle way," she said on the red carpet. Mission accomplished!

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron Oscars 2020

Charlize Theron wore an off-the-shoulder black gown and accompanied it with a very special person—her mama. "I win the award for best date, for sure," the star and mama said on the E! News pre-show. We couldn't agree more!

Lily Aldridge

This mama of two and co-host of the Oscars Red Carpet Show wore a Ralph Lauren dress and Jimmy Choo heels. Equally eye-catching was her ethereal Bvlgari earrings and red lip that clearly stole the red carpet.

Maya Rudolph

The Saturday Night Live comedian and mom of four paired an orange sequin Valentino gown with green earrings that were once worn by Beyoncé. We also can't stop starring at her blunt haircut that's the perfect style for busy mamas to maintain.

Tamron Hall

Tamron Hall Oscars 2020

New mama Tamron Hall looked regal in a Theia Couture empress gown, that was cut from black matte satin with a hand embroidered pearl collar. We're also obsessed with her short haircut and perfectly pink pout.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling Oscars 2020

Remember when Mindy hit the red carpet at the 2018 Met Gala in a gorgeous white cap-sleeve gown and navy arm-length gloves less than six months after she birthed her daughter? Amazing, right? Well the actress stunned again, only this time she killed it in a one-shoulder yellow gown with a short train. Go, mama!

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson Oscars 2020

Scarlett looked marvelous in a silver Oscar de la Renta gown and a revealing corset that served as a perfect way to showcase her rose back tattoo that's in honor of her daughter, Rose Dauriac.

Why do all of my good parenting or baby-focused inventions come after they've already been invented by someone else? Sigh.

Like the Puj hug hooded baby towel, aka the handiest, softest cotton towel ever created.

Safely removing a wet, slippery baby from the bath can be totally nerve-wracking, and trying to hold onto a towel at the same time without soaking it in the process seems to require an extra arm altogether. It's no wonder so much water ends up on the floor, the countertops, or you(!) after bathing your little one. Their splashing and kicking in the water is beyond adorable, of course, but the clean up after? Not as much.

It sounds simple: Wash your child, sing them a song or two, let them play with some toys, then take them out, place a towel around them, and dry them off. Should be easy, peasy, lemon squeezy, right?

But it hasn't been. It's been more—as one of my favorite memes says—difficult, difficult, lemon difficult. Because until this towel hit the bathtime scene, there was no easy-peasy way to pick up your squirming wet baby without drenching yourself and/or everything around you.

Plus, there is nothing cuter than a baby in a plush hooded towel, right? Well, except when it's paired with a dry, mess-free floor, maybe.
