The Oscars are Hollywood’s biggest night where the stars show off their most glamorous looks — but there was one newcomer who totally stole the show.

Nigerian singer Tems made her Oscars debut last night, and I think we can all collectively agree that she looked incredible.

Tems wears a one shoulder white tulle gown with a thigh high split with a head piece that extends from the shoulder back around her head

Tems, who was nominated for her writing credit on “Lift Me Up” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, stepped out in a stunning tulle gown.

Her hard-to-miss look was styled by Dunsin Wright and designed by Ukrainian fashion label Lever Couture.

But aside from Tems just looking amazing, she also made headlines for the fact that her gown may have kinda obstructed the view of some people in the audience.

Imagine waiting your whole life to be at the Oscars and you end up sitting behind a stratus cloud.

Tems didn’t win any oscars but she’s still the conversation topic of the event, a queen.

I hope Tems wears an even bigger dress to the next event she’s invited to.
