Fashion Friday: The Best Oscar Looks of All Time

I have a serious red-carpet award show obsession. I never miss it! This year there is bound to be some good looks on the red carpet this Sunday for the Oscars. I cannot WAIT to see what style maven Lupito N’yongo will wear! Until then, I wanted to recap some of my favorite Oscar looks of all time!

There are a few dresses I think of when I think, “Best Oscar Dress of All Time” and one of them is Michelle Williams in the canary-colored Vera Wang dream at the 2006 Oscars. Her dreamy updo, the handsome Heath Ledger on her arm-may he rest in peace-and that bold lip color. Everything about this look was perfect.

A few years before that Jennifer Lopez wore a mint green one-shoulder Valentino gown that to this day, I cannot think of any other red carpet dress that looks like it. Jennifer Lopez often wears glammy skin-tight sequin gowns, but I don’t think she has ever looked better than the Oscar red carpet in 2003.

I am sorry, I know it is practically a cliche at this point, but no list of the Best Oscar Looks Of All Time would be complete without Gwyneth Paltrow in pink Ralph Lauren. 1999 looked good on Gwyneth!

A practice in minimalism, Angelina Jolie stunned in black and emerald on the red carpet in 2009. The look made such an impression, I distinctly remember my friend and I going to the mall a few weeks later, because my friend wanted to pick up a black dress and emerald earrings to go with it, “like Angelina!” for an event she was attending. She looked like perfection that night.

The cut of this dress would even look chic today.

When I said of all time, I really meant it. Let’s reach way, way back to see some other great looks, such as Elizabeth Taylor in a lavender gown in 1970. There is still no movie star as glamorous to replace Elizabeth Taylor. She wore one of her all-time greatest gems, the 69 carat Taylor-Burton diamond. To die for!

Nobody did timeless like Audrey!

Another glamor girl of an era gone-by, Audrey Hepburn, makes my list of the Best Oscar Looks of All Time! Hepburn was divine in a white floral Givenchy, a radiant beacon of light. This dress is a total classic.

Say what you want, I love it.

Call me crazy, but one of my personal favorite Oscar looks will always be Barbra Streisand in that sheer black and white pantsuit with a collar. Back in the days where not every celebrity had their own celebrity stylist, choices were much more unique. I think it’s fun, and it is just how I like to remember Streisand!

Last on my list is Sandra Bullock, who stunned the year that she won the Best Actress Oscar in a gown by one of my all time favorite red carpet designers, Elie Saab.
