Michelle Williams, who attended the 2006 show with then-boyfriend Heath Ledger, made a bold sartorial choice when she paired bright red lips with a saffron-colored Vera Wang.

In case the world didn't already know that Halle Berry had a killer body, the actress showed it off in a sheer Elie Saab design when she won the Best Actress award for Monster's Ball in 2002.

Mila Kunis' Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman snagged an Oscar last year, but it was Kunis who killed it on the red carpet in a pale lilac Elie Saab Couture lace gown.
