The 10 Best Oscar Looks of All Time

By Sarah Hearon on February 17, 2015

To celebrate the 87th Academy Awards this Sunday, let’s take a look back at the best Oscar dresses of all time.

1. Lupita Nyong’o: Lupita channeled her inner Cinderella in 2014, and the result was absolutely stunning. It’s no surprise she picked up her first trophy and all of the attention before the clock hit midnight.

2. Penelope Cruz: When Penelope stepped onto the red carpet in 2007, jaws dropped. The star looks perfect in this feathered little pink gown.

3. Jennifer Lawrence: Another star who looked pretty in pink was Jennifer Lawrence in 2013. The star completed her look with a backwards necklace and an up-do that kept everyone talking for weeks.

4. Halle Berry: Halle’s 2002 dress is the perfect example of a fashion risk totally paying off. Her look was daring and unique, but also sexy and beautiful.

5. Julia Roberts: In 2001, Julia Roberts looked like a classic beauty. Her tight black dress and super high ponytail made her look like a retro Barbie, inspiring Reese Witherspoon’s 2011 look.

6. Mila Kunis: Mila’s gown, which fit her perfectly, was the definition of elegant in 2011. The lavender, lacy dress probably made the Academy regret not nominating her for Best Supporting Actress in The Black Swan.

7. Michelle Williams: It’s nearly impossible to make yellow work on the red carpet, and whenever anyone tries, their dress is compared to Michelle’s impeccable 2006 gown.

8. Sandra Bullock: Sandra looked just like the Oscar she won later that night on the 2010 red carpet. The actress’s dress was detailed and sparkled to perfection.

9. Gwyneth Paltrow: Gwyneth brought fierce to the red carpet in 2012 with her white cape. Gwen’s look was striking and gorgeous.

10. Hilary Swank: This is a dress so fabulous you need to see if from three different angles. In 2005, Hilary and her back stole the show and made a long sleeve gown sexier than anyone thought possible.
