What are some of the most unforgettable Oscars outfits of all time?

Audrey Hepburn (26th Academy Awards):

Audrey Hepburn wore a belted white floral Givenchy dress to the academy awards, while receiving her Oscar for Roman Holiday. This would be one of the first times the public sees Audrey in a Givenchy dress, which has now become a classic among many others.

Grace Kelly (27th Academy Awards):

While winning an Oscar for her performance in The Country Girl, Grace Kelly graced the stage with her icy-blue satin gown by Edith Head, which she would re-wear for her Life magazine shoot. The dress would be an inspiration for many subsequent Oscar dresses.

Barbra Streisand (41st Academy Awards):

While this night is mostly remembered for the night Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn tied for best actress, Streisand’s outfit was also a topic of discussion. Deemed outlandish by some, Streisand wore a sequenced pantsuit by Arnold Scaasi with tuxedo cuffs.

Cher (58th Academy Awards):

When Cher showed up to the Oscars to present the award for Best Supporting Actor, she wore a one of a kind of dress by Bob Mackie that left jaws dropped. Wearing an over-the-top headpiece alongside a black jewel-encrusted look.

Uma Thurman (67th Academy Awards):

Uma Thurman’s dress to the Oscars managed to be high fashion while keeping to the minimalistic approach of the 90s. Thurman’s simple lilac Prada dress became one of the most iconic Oscar dresses while boosting Prada’s name in the fashion world.

Nicole Kidman (69th Academy Awards):

Kidman wore a daring Christian Dior dress while attending the Oscars. Wearing a silk gown in iridescent chartreuse by John Galliano that wowed everyone in the red carpet and upstage her then-husband.

Gwyneth Paltrow (71st Academy Awards):

Taking inspiration from Grace Kelly’s gown, Ralph Lauren designed Gwyneth Paltrow a soft pink taffeta gown. While the dress received a decisive response, it nevertheless resulted in many copies being made and is credited in bringing back the color pink back in fashion.

Julia Roberts (73rd Academy Awards):

Julia Roberts vintage floor-length, Black and White Valentino dress is one of the most iconic red carpet gowns. Valentino intended to evoke the style of classic Hollywood in this dress, and it has since become one of the pinnacles of his career. The dress became widely popular and was praised by many media outlets and fashion critics.

Björk (73rd Academy Awards):

Julia Roberts’ dress wasn’t the only one being talked about that night. Björk’s swan dress became widely reported. While some praised it for being original, many criticized it for its outlandish design and appearance. It remains one of the most talked about red carpet dresses.

Halle Berry (74th Academy Awards):

Halle Berry made history as the first person of color to win the Oscar for Best Actress, all while wearing one of the most memorable Oscar dresses for the moment. The dress designed by Elie Saab featured a mesh and embroidered top with a deep sea-red following it.

Michelle Williams (78th Academy Awards):

For the 2006 Academy Awards, Williams wore a Canary yellow Vera Wang design. The dress remains as one of the most beautiful gowns worn on Oscar night. The dress was cut and fit to Williams and paired with her bold crimson lips, became one of the nights most talked about looks.

Angelina Jolie (84th Academy Awards):

For the 2012 Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie wore a black velvet Versace dress that went viral. But it wasn’t exactly the dress that became a viral sensation, rather it was how Jolie confidently struck her right leg out of her high slit, becoming now known as “that dress”.

Jennifer Lawrence (85th Academy Awards):

Although she may have tripped while going up to receive her award, she still looked graceful with her Dior Haute Couture gown, while sporting a Chopard 74-carat strand of 150 diamond beads, worn backward.

Lupita Nyong’o (86th Academy Awards):

When going up stage to collect her award for Best Supporting Actress of 2014, Lupita Nyong’o wore a plunging icy blue Prada gown with Fred Leighton jewellery that earned the admiration of many on the actress’s style.

Lauren Hutton (47th Academy Awards):
