The Oscars: Hollywood’s biggest event of the year is full of elegance, glitz, and glamour. Let’s take a look at the absolute most unforgettable Oscar gowns worn by the most iconic stars.
Audrey Hepburn, 1954
Audrey won Best Actress that year and wore an iconic Givenchy floral dress. It’s considered the most favorite Oscar look of all time.
Vivien Leigh, 1940
Vivien won Best Actress for the popular and classic movie Gone With The Wind. Her beautiful Marlene Dietrich designed dress also stole the show that night. Paired with a Van Cleef & Arpels luxury necklace, Vivien definitely looked red carpet-worthy.
Julie Andrews, 1965
Julie Andrews wore an incredible pale yellow dress on the night she won her Best Actress award. While the designer is not known, we love how this color compliments Julie’s personality and skin tone. A classic look for sure!
Jane Fonda, 1972
Fonda digressed from the typical ballgown look and opted for a haute couture suit from Yves Saint Laurent. Her choice of dress got everyone talking but luckily the attention was diverted to her Oscar win for best actress in the movie, Klute.
Meryl Streep, 1980
Oscar fashion fans consider this look their favorite of all time and we have to admit, it’s stunning! Streep accepted her Best Supporting Actress Oscar award in this breathtaking classic, cream, popped-collar dress designed by talented Pauline Trigère.
Anjelica Huston, 1986
Daring to say the least. Back in the ‘80s, this look was surely an eye-opener. Huston rocked the asymmetrical look with an emerald green satin dress designed by Tzetzi Ganev. We love her boldness and confidence in this ensemble!
Jodie Foster, 1989
Foster won Best Actress that year for her role in The Accused. While we sure she deserved that Oscar, we are not so sure about the dress that accompanied it. It looks like a prom dress and the nude stockings really are a no-go!
Gwyneth Paltrow, 1999
Another one of the most iconic and favorite Oscar dresses of all time. Paltrow dazzled in this beautiful baby pink satin ensemble. Designed by Ralph Lauren, this fitting gown is still one of the most talked-about looks over the years.
Angelina Jolie, 2000
The start of the millennium saw a lot of different looks being worn on the red carpet. Jolie wears a clean, black, and floor-length gown by Versace. This simplistic look looks amazing on Jolie’s figure and we can safely say she stole the spotlight.
Julia Roberts, 2001
When Roberts won Best Actress for Erin Brokovich, she chose a lovely, clean, and asymmetrical dress made by Valentino in 1992. While we can’t help but notice that it looks similar to Marisa Tomei’s gown, Roberts looks stunning as always.
Halle Berry, 2002
Who could ever forget this epic win? Also, we adore this Elie Saab gown that Halle wore for her historic win. The dress, the win, the speech…everything was a fabulous ensemble and it’s definitely an Oscar look that tops the list.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, 2003
Versace pulled off this amazing maternity look for Catherine with elegance and style. Catherine was nine months pregnant when she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Chicago. We love the flowy features and the touch of sparkle.
Nicole Kidman, 2003
That same year, Nicole Kidman take away the award for Best Actress for the movie The Hours. We love how she strutted her look with grace and confidence. She opted for a Jean Paul Gaultier dress and gave off a classic Grace Kelly vibe.
Charlize Theron, 2004
South African-born beauty Charlize Theron won Best Actress and also stole the red carpet in 2004 with a sparkling Gucci gown. Charlize topped off her look with intricate jewelry pieces. Did we also mention how much we love her Old Hollywood wavy hair?
Penélope Cruz, 2009
We just can’t get over this superb vintage look that Penélope pulled off in 2009. While some may argue that it looks like a wedding dress, it’s actually a vintage Balmain ball gown from 1950. 50 years later and this timeless look doesn’t get old.
Jennifer Lawrence, 2013
While Judd Law didn’t have a good run-in with this dress ( yes, he tripped and fell while walking behind Jen), we absolutely adore this grandeur look that Jennifer pulled off like a pro. This Dior gown just screams fabulous and the color is perfectly pretty.
Priyanka Chopra, 2016
One word- wow. Priyanka stole the show with this breathtaking Zuhair Murad dress. White looks perfect on her and the embellished, delicate flowers really put the final look together. Paired with $3.2 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Chopra was the queen of the red carpet.
