Pampering and partying: the best behind-the-scenes Instagrams from the Oscars 2017

One of the joys of social media is the insight it gives us into worlds we’d otherwise know little about – and rarely is that truer than on the night of the Oscars.

Everyone loves seeing Hollywood’s best and brightest in all their finery on the red carpet, but there’s something particularly fascinating about getting a glimpse at what goes on behind the scenes. So it’s lucky for us that the stars – plus their friends, families and assorted glam squads – are more than willing to oblige by posting their personal snaps on Instagram.

From the sheer volume of beauty products it takes to get Scarlett Johansson red carpet-ready, to Emma Stone’s exact lipstick shade and Michelle Williams’ bathroom selfies, here are the best Instagram snaps giving an insider’s look at the 2017 Oscars.
