The 2023 Oscars is going goth.

Some of Hollywood’s biggest stars at the 95th Academy Awards were channeling their inner Wednesday Addams for this red carpet trend.

The beloved "Addams Family" member is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable goth icons and she has had a recent resurgence following Jenna Ortega’s portrayal of the character.

Since the release of the hit Netflix horror comedy "Wednesday" in November, there has been a revived appreciation for the eccentric character, her unusual dance moves and, of course, her all-black wardrobe. 

A few celebrities seemed to be inspired by Wednesday’s sense of style as they strutted down the red carpet in shimmery black outfits. 

Ahead of performing her Oscar-nominated song "Hold My Hand" from "Top Gun: Maverick," Lady Gaga made her final appearance this award season in a sculptured, sheer black dress. She completed her look with dark, intense eye makeup.

Harvey Guillen looked like a gothic daydream while making history at the 95th Academy Awards as the first plus-sized man to be dressed by Christian Siriano. While speaking to E! News on the red carpet, Guillen gushed about his ensemble.

"So I’m throwing it back to the old days with the finger wave (hairstyle) and with the original tuxedo top, but with a flair on the bottom," he said.

Guillen added, "(I) want to be here and be myself and I want to be seen as myself. So I love that I’m represented so it’s really a great night."

Meanwhile, Phoebe Waller-Bridge seemed to be more inspired by Catherine Zeta-Jones's Morticia Addams in her glamorous old Hollywood strapless gown.
