The 20 most memorable Oscar red carpet moments of all time
Two words: swan dress
It's countdown to Oscars time! While we wait to see who wins Best Actress (Saoirse Ronan, obviously), we look back at our favourite ever Oscar looks, like Bjork's famous swan dress and that time when Angelina's right leg stole the show.
Bjork's swan dress is so iconic, even people who have spent the last 20 years living off grid in a mudhut in the bush know about it.
Pre-GOOP Gwyneth was the best Gwyneth, and we love her here in ballet pink Ralph Lauren, crying her way through her acceptance speech.
On Heath Ledger's (*sob*) arm, Michelle Williams looks so young and carefree, not to mention bombshell gorgeous in this saffron Vera Wang gown.
This was a landmark dress and a landmark Oscar win: in 2002, Halle Berry was the first woman of colour to receive a best actress Oscar. Sadly in 15 years, it hasn't happened again yet.
Some loved it and some hated it, but there's no denying, Nicole Kidman upstaged Tom Cruise in chartreuse Galliano.
A French woman in a French designer had to make the list. Marion Cotillard is exquisite in this piece of gorgeous couture from Jean Paul Gaultier.
Angelina Jolie and the right-leg-sticking-out-pose that was mocked around the world.
Lupita Nyong'o was pretty in powder blue Prada.
Pamela Anderson, eat your heart out. Jennifer Lawrence Calvin Klein Collection is 100 per cent Baywatch babe.
Emma Stone was channeling Oscars in her column art deco Givenchy gown, and it worked. That year she won Best Actress for La La Land.
Maybe she missed the memo that it was the Oscars, not the Grammys, or maybe it was just the 90s. Either way, no one rocks a backwards suit like Celine.
Lauren Hutton always looks gorgeous, whether it was in a gold jumpsuit in the 80s or in this pant suit with driving gloves. May we all look as beautiful as Lauren Hutton when we're 74.
This was the controversial year Jennifer Hudson upstaged Sasha Fierce herself, scoring an Oscar for Dreamgirls. Does that mean she's a better singer? Jury's out.
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy is perfection.
All covered in front and bare in the back, Hilary Swank's Guy Laroche gown might be the most understated and sexy Oscars look ever.
Ruth Nega was all gothic chic in Valentino last year, but it wasn't all about looks. The red dress made a striking backdrop for a political statement as she proudly wore a blue American Civil Liberties Unions ribbon to last year's Oscars.
This might seem out of left field, but Whoopi Goldberg is seriously unbeatable. Here she is in full Elizabethan period costume, the first woman and first woman of colour to ever host the awards.
Fellas are always upstaged by the ladies at shows like this, but we can't deny how handsome Dev Patel looked at last year's awards in his Burberry suit. And he brought the best date: his mum.
In this jumpsuit disguised as a gown, Lady Gaga is unstoppable.
A lot of folks choose JLo's mint green, one-shoulder gown as her best Oscars look, but we think this daring dress with a sheer top was ahead of its time.
