Since its opening night 90 years ago, the Academy Awards red carpet has become one of the most style-watched events of its time. Who could forget Nicole Kidman in an off-beat chartreuse couture dress that dazzled onlookers in 1997 — or Halle Berry, who filled us with body-envy donning a sheer-panel floral gown back in 2002? Throughout the years, the Oscars has offered an abundance of striking fashion moments, but only handful of gowns truly stand the test of time. To celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night in film and fashion, we’re taking a look at 10 dresses we’ll never forget from the red carpet.

Black was the word of the night at the 2018 Golden Globes. Most stars — men and women — wore black to protest sexual misconduct in Hollywood. They made it clear that this was not a fashion statement but a statement of solidarity, and it’s a powerful message. Here are the biggest stars as they hit the carpet on this momentous night.

(Photo: Getty Images) There was this candid moment at the Academy Awards captured on camera: Best Actress nominees Brie Larson and Cate Blanchett were chatting with Best Supporting Actress nominee Kate Winslet. During the conversation, the Room star looked shocked, and then Blanchett started rubbing Winslet’s stomach, with Larson eventually throwing her arms around Winslet. This short exchange, shared on Vine and in photo sets on social media, resulted in a viral conspiracy theory: Kate Winslet is pregnant.
The actual Academy Awards was just the first stop for attendees on Sunday night, with celebrations taking place until the early morning hours. For some, the same dress for the multiple events couldn’t possibly suffice and they shed their red carpet look for something new. There are plenty of reasons for doing this: Alicia Vikander wanted to dance and her dusty yellow Louis Vuitton gown wasn’t really made for that; Jennifer Lawrence slipped into something more age appropriate; Daisy Ridley swapped a midi for a mini; and more.

Few things are better than when fashion and ballet collide, and such was the case at New York City Ballet’s Fall Gala on Wednesday night. The Cartier-sponsored event celebrated fashion designers who create costumes for the ballet, like Zuhair Murad, Peter Copping of Oscar de la Renta, Hanako Maeda of Adeam, Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony, and Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida of Marques’ Almeida. Many of those same designers sparkled on the red carpet, with Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Hudson, and Julia Restoin Roitfeld showing off their most theatrical, fashion-forward designs. In fact, SJP was so enthralled by Zuhair Murad’s smoky-gray, glittering gown when she saw it on the designer’s couture runway, she personally wrote him a letter asking to wear it to the event.

Photo: Getty Images Willow Smith might be the model in the family — she was just signed to The Society Management, Kendall Jenner’s agency — but it’s pretty obvious where she got her looks from: her mother. Jada Pinkett Smith hit up Paris Fashion Week in an eye-catching dress and France hasn’t seen this much glamour since the Kardashian family took over in February. The 44-year-old attended the Guy Laroche show, a burlap, denim, and army green dream, wearing a black and gold body-hugging dress.
I was really upset to not get an invite to Givenchy’s epic New York show, but I’m actually depressed that I didn’t attend Fromage Fashion Week, the most incredible meeting of my two loves in life: clothes and cheese. Held on Sunday ahead of Paris Fashion Week, the festival of fashion and gastronomy drew a crowd of around 500 as models hit red carpet-lined rues wearing dresses designed by Geoffrey Mignot. The women, including a beauty queen, some actresses, a journalist, and a few athletes, were clad in intricately made pieces with sheer, feathers, fur, fringe, beading, and other standout details. But the accessories were the best part as each catwalker carried her own wheel, chunk, or plate of cheese in place of a clutch or bag.
Oscars Red Carpet Face-Off: Red Dresses on Rosamund Pike, Dakota Johnson & More If you’re wondering why Behati Prinsloo was at the 2015 Oscars in the first place, it was to watch her husband Adam Levine perform. She wore an Armani Privé beaded column gown, giving Rosamund Pike a run for her money. But theGone Girlactress will make all the best dressed lists tonight thanks to her deep red, thread-embroidered custom Givenchy gown that took over 2,000 hours to make. Meanwhile, Solange Knowles loves taking risks, and did so with this long-sleeved turtleneck jumpsuit by Christian Siriano.
The stars couldn’t have aligned for a better cause last night as Lisa Kudrow, Katherine Heigl, Molly Ringwald, Sarah Hyland, and Yahoo Style cover stars Sophie Tweed Simmons and James Marsden were among those who attended the TrevorLIVE event at the Hollywood Paladium. The fete supported the important non-for-profit organization the Trevor Project, now in its sixteenth year, which provides much-needed help and crisis intervention to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
