With the Oscars quickly approaching, soon we will have plenty of fashion do’s and dont’s to look at. However, for now, let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at some of the best Oscar gowns to ever grace the red carpet. These iconic looks will live on forever in ou minds for their brilliance and daring.
Angelina Jolie in Antelier Versace
Back in 2012, Angie shocked the world with her amazing black velvet gown.
The dresses long slit, and Angie’s racy pose was imprinted in our minds, and her look made history. Soon everyone was copying Angies look, and it is by far one of the most outstanding dresses of the Oscars.
Lupita Nyongo in Francisco Costa
Kenyan actress Lupita Nyongo wowed audiences at the 2015 Oscars with her majestic and authentic pearl-encrusted gown. However, the dress had its fair share of controversy as shortly after wearing the dress on the red carpet, it was disclosed that the pearl covered gown was worth hundreds of thousands.
Shortly after, the dress was stolen from the actress’s hotel room, only to be returned later. Despite this controversy, the dress looked absolutely gorgeous on the ebony-skinned beauty, and it was definitely one of the most iconic looks for the actress.
Bjork in feathers
In 2001 Icelandic artist Bjork wore a now-infamous swan dress on the red carpet. The awkward look was only made worse when the singer decided to lay an egg on the red carpet.
While Bjork is usually known for her protest outfits, it seems when she wore the swan dress, she wasn’t making any particular pollical or environmental statement. The look was copied by Ellen when she hosted the Oscars the following year.
