The Academy Awards are a nationwide event that every year people look forward to. Not only do individuals wait to see their favorite stars win awards, but we love to fawn even more over the amazing outfits they wear. On the red carpet, we always see such lovely gowns and suits, so let’s take a second and remember some of the loveliest Oscar outfits. We’ve got the best list for you, so we hope that you’re happy!

Kendall Jenner

For Kendall Jenner, last year was a remarkable one. She had a meteoric rise to fame as she, together with her good friends Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid, became one of the world’s top models. The dream of Kendall to become a model for Victoria’s Secret was fulfilled and the 14th season of her family’s reality show ended with high ratings of all time. Her red carpet dress does not leave much to the imagination in 2017.

Rihanna

In fashion, Ri Ri, everyone’s favorite bad girl, is popular for taking risks. We’re usually big fans of the style she’s got, but we’re not entirely sure if she’s been successful in owning this look. Some fashion experts share the view that an unflattering one, she resembles a Valentine’s Day bouquet.

Angelina Jolie

A dress with such a pale color would frequently not complement a complexion that is this pale. Nevertheless it totally works in this case! Certainly, the dress complements her figure, making her look absolutely gorgeous. We think Angelina Jolie definitely nailed it even though she looks slightly unimpressed.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry definitely stirred up some controversy over her decision to wear this rather interesting outfit. This look may be loved or hated by several people, but we believe the pop star achieved the goal she had, which was to walk the red carpet while making a big impact. This is because our expectations of what a woman should wear for such an event were challenged by her.

Andra Day

With the array of colors and materials the outfit had the 2018 look that Grammy-nominated singer Andra Day sported certainly got a lot of people’s attention. She was already a head-turner in her dress, but when she was lying on the carpet, she also caught people’s eyes! By opting to style her hair this way, the singer added more drama. Her voluminous ponytail was full of loose waves and the small pink flowers were beautifully decorated. This girly look is, we think, totally original.

Rita Moreno

This is not the first time on the red carpet that this elegant gold and black number has made its appearance. This boatneck gown was first worn by Rita Moreno back in 1962. Her West Side Story performance earned her the award for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars that year. Fifty-six years later, the star chose to wear the same outfit and completed her look with lovely opera-length black satin gloves. We just adore this look and love her choice. This woman looks incredible!

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman looks pretty much like a diva on the 90th Academy Awards red carpet. We think she deserves a spot on the year’s best dressed list for rocking this cobalt blue Armi Privé dress. There is a very unique shape to the dress, and it is perfectly tailored. We also love how she selected this bold red lipstick to complement this look. 1/4 Sentences

Cameron Diaz

The name Cameron Diaz usually tops the list of best dressed stars, but this kimono-esque night gown may not be a look everybody loves. The dress is however, definitely bold and memorable. We are fairly certain that she turned a lot of heads because of her amazing outfit.

Kim Kardashian West

Many know KKW as a fashionista who is not afraid of taking fashion risks and is on top of various trends in the design world. Her style has certainly matured and improved ever since Kim Kardashian got married to Kanye West. Case in point: that gown. We think this outfit is classy and elegant, and in the right places, it hugs her curves.

Sarah Jessica Parker

SJP is popular for her sense of fashion, which is adventurous as well as experimental. Some individuals have commented that with the look she sported in 2015, she went a little too far. One thing is for sure: with the dress she wore and the headgear she used to complement the look, she definitely turned heads.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum is an expert not only on numerous catwalks, but also on many red carpets, strutting her stuff. Although the purple gown she wore was definitely girly, some have said that it was not a suitable choice for this event. Still, we can’t deny that what she wore is unforgettable!

Celine Dion

Here, Celine Dion took a risk and chose to go for a look that can be described appropriately as rock chic glam. We’re not sure, however if the best style choice for her was the dress or the dark makeup. Regardless of what we think, she definitely rocked the place with how astounding she looks.

Daryl Hannah

Daryl Hannah wore this glam-gold dress back in 1988 and paired it with elbow-length gloves. She had long blonde waves as well. With this look, the actress certainly turned heads, and we can’t help but commend her for it, particularly since it was in the ’80s!

Savannah Chrisley

In this stunning tight-fitting black dress, Savannah Chrisley attended the ACM Awards and left so many speechless. The 23-year-old American actress definitely pulled the look off as the red carpet rocked her. The idea behind the long dress, apparently, was that she wanted to tell the world that she was a woman now. She certainly looked good, in addition to the fact that she was sporting significant cleavage.

Sofia Vergara always looks breathtaking, just based on her personality and character, to be honest, she turns heads. However in a black and gold embellished strappy dress, the Modern Family star looked sensational. The dress had gold and silver embellishments, glitter and was complemented with further black sequins. The floral details are elegant and seamlessly embroidered. In addition, this statement piece really added to her subtle curls and red lipstick.

The wonderful long black dress Kate Upton wore at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2016 was utterly ravishing. Whatever Kate is wearing, however, she always looks smashing.

We all love Cher! While she is most definitely an icon, total divas can still be the victim of looks that are not so flattering. Style critics have been saying that this look is “unflattering.” We’re not so sure about her dress, but we definitely dig the wig!

Melissa Rauch

The ‘Big Bang’ star had her looks downplayed in the series as she portrayed someone extra-nerdy, however, Melissa Rauch is simply stunning. She pulls of this elegant yellow floor-length gown that emphasizes in all the right places her figure. She looks amazing pairing the gown with a simple white clutch, tear-drop oearl earrings and an up-do-.

Whether she is on the red carpet or not, Kate Winslet is always gorgeous. We completely believe that both the color and the cut of this dress fit her. The dress against her pale skin makes her natural beauty truly accentuated. Lovely choice, Kate! A definite epitome of a rose from England and all its beauty.

Liz Hurley

Back in 1995, because of both this dress and the guy on her arm, Liz Hurley fueled rumors. That year, an actor from the UK, Hugh Grant, was also her date. The two became the ultimate couple in Hollywood later on. Their outfits may be simple, but they are a perfect match!

Zendaya

The dress that was worn by this young beauty is very polarizing. Although some fashion experts claim that this danger is a fashion victory and rightfully merits a place on the best dressed list, others strongly disagree and believe that it is a major faux pas. Who do you agree with?
