The 2016 Oscars are finally upon us, and with so many incredible red carpet looks in the past, it’s going to be tough for the ladies to live up to the hype! Click through the gallery to check out the best Oscar dresses of all time — you’ll forget how much you loved some of these.
Let’s be real, the Academy Awards are as much about the fashion as they are about honoring the best in film. The red carpet is one of the most exciting moments of the night, and as we get ready to see what stars like Lady Gaga, Brie Larson, Kate Winslet and more are going to wear this year, we’re looking back at some of our favorite looks from the past. Check ’em out here!
Jennifer Lawrence, 25, is basically the queen of the Oscars these days, but back in 2011, she was just a newbie, and she made quite a first impression. The A-lister looked absolutely stunning in a form-fitting, red Calvin Klein dress, and with her hair in loose waves, she was the definition of elegance. We can’t wait to see what she wears this year!
And how about Angelina Jolie?! Shockingly, it’s not her 2012 leg-slit dress that we’re going to include in this roundup. Rather, it’s the white Marc Bouwer dress she wore to the show in 2004, which has been widely cited as one of the best Oscar dresses EVER, with Angie flawlessly pulling off the plunging design and satin material. We’ll be anxiously waiting to see if she and Brad Pitt show up for the 2016 show!
Beyonce may not be a movie star, but she knows how to work a red carpet, and that’s exactly what she did when she showed up to the 2005 Academy Awards as a performer. She looked absolutely incredible in a strapless, black, velvet gown and we will NEVER forget it. Click through the gallery above to see Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock and more gorgeous ladies wearing some of the most beautiful dresses EVER!
