Feeling blue now that the 2020 Oscars are behind us? Well, join Us in taking a look back at some of the top styles that celebrities have worn throughout the years — and prepare to stay for a while.
The 92nd Annual Academy Awards took place on Sunday, February 9, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. And with no host set for the ceremony, the fashion was front and center. Two stars that took our breath away were Janelle Monáe and Renée Zellweger. Monae wowed in a custom crystal-covered gown that took over 600 hours to make, while Zellweger glittered in a gorgeous custom one-shoulder number deserving of its own award.
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.
Let’s take a trip back in time, shall we? 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.
