The 2019 Oscars are only a few days away! With the biggest award show coming up we took a look back at some of the best looks that celebrities have worn throughout the years. And man, have there been some good ones.
The 91st Annual Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. And with no host set for the ceremony, the fashion will be more front and center than ever.
What a night we’ll have in store! How do we know? Well, the Oscars have always been the biggest headline-maker of the year in the fashion department. After all, the evening of the Academy Awards is the night to wow in Hollywood.
And, boy, have they wowed. In 1953, the style icon Audrey Hepburn attended the Academy Awards in the same ivory lace gown she wore in her final scene of Roman Holiday, courtesy of her favorite designer Hubert de Givenchy. When Elizabeth Taylor was at the height of her fame in 1961, she accepted her Oscar for Butterfield 8 wearing a white and yellow Christian Dior gown with floral detailing. Shirley MacLaine hosted the 1975 event in a strapless floor-length standing alongside Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Bob Hope.
And who could possibly forget Sharon Stone’s surprising look from 1996? Instead of attending in the typical ball gown or formal dress, the Casino actress showed up in a Gap turtleneck and Armani velvet coat.
Sure, we are excited to see who takes home the biggest awards of the year, but you can’t blame us for being equally psyched to see what fashion 2019’s Academy Awards bring us. But until then, we’ll just take a look back.
From Vivien Leigh‘s poppy gown in 1940 to Reese Witherspoon‘s off-the-shoulder stunner and Emma Stone‘s beaded dress in 2015, keep scrolling to see the most memorable Oscars red carpet looks of all time.
