Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard all about the eventful Oscars ceremony that happened on Sunday. And while it feels like most of the internet is talking about one particular moment of the night, many are also focused on the fashion.
Of course, the Oscars are always an excuse for celebrities to get kitted out in their finest attire and hit the red carpet. But have you ever looked at the attendees and wondered, what book cover do they look like? Us neither, but thanks to Waterstones, now we can't stop thinking about it.

The book shop Waterstones has tweeted a thread (opens in new tab) of photos of celebs at the Oscars compared to book covers. From Timothee Chalamet (actor and secret Xbox modder) to Olivia Coleman, Waterstones has chosen book covers that feature a similar colour or pattern to the outfits – and we're seriously impressed by how accurate they are.
The tweets have racked up several likes and retweets. Many Twitter users are loving the comparisons, with many complimenting the designs. One user replied "These Oscar fashion/book covers images are kinda rad," and another responded, "This is the best thing to come out of the Oscars" – to which we have to agree (those Will Smith Slap NFTs were pretty distasteful after all).
After all the controversies surrounding this year's Oscars event, it's nice to see something so wholesome grace our Twitter thread.
