Best and Worst Oscar Dresses
Truly gorgeous (and hideous!) red carpet looks
Valentino can do no wrong! Our fave pretty woman rocked this gorg look in 2001, making her one of our choices for best dressed!
We couldn’t think of a better combo than Penelope Cruz and Versace! She stole the show in 2007 with this gorgeous and elaborate gown.
A backward white suit, dark shades, and a hat? Sorry Celine, but you look like an insane Good Humor Man.
Classic and glamorous, this star’s sparkly gown was an instant hit, and landed her on the Best Gowns of All Time list.
Another Versace hit! Kate Hudson is glowing in this gorgeous gown with her vintage jewels.
Whoop…sie. This dress reminds us of a Disney villain. Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, anyone?
Stunning in Vera Wang! Loving Michelle’s bold choice of color, tied together with the red lips.
Move over Cate Blanchett, because there’s a new (er, old) pregnant stunner on the carpet! Humphrey Bogart’s special lady and baby looked fierce in Christian Dior at the 1952 Oscars.
The daring Ms. Stone used her basic instincts when she paired her husband’s Gap button-down with a lilac satin Vera Wang skirt, and we’re loving it!
Look up the word “glamour” in the dictionary and you will find a pic of Grace Kelly at the 1956 Oscars. The real-life princess looked regal in a Helen Rose creation.
Sorry Björk, you’re a few years early for the role of the Swan Princess! We love original pieces, but some should be left in the closet (or the oven).
A Greek goddess in gray, Natalie Portman topped off this Lanvin creation with a diadem and minimal accessories. Gorg!
Romeo and Juliet…Kate and Will…Starsky and Hutch…Some people are just meant to be together. Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn were no exception, and our fave waif dazzled her way into America's heart wearing Givenchy's glamorous design in 1954. Talk about a perfect fit!
Runaway bride or the 1990 Oscars? To be determined. Sorry Kim, not your best!
We wish we were just friends with Mila Kunis so we could borrow her uh-mazing lavender Elie Saab haute couture gown from the 2011 Oscars. Wow!
It was a pleasant surprise when the queen of the LBD changed it up and made an appearance in this gorg Valentino number. One thing that remains unchanged: her gorg glowing tan!
The sheer and the shades of pink are just all wrong for an Oscar dress, or maybe for any dress!
The Balenciaga-clad beauty’s red scarf followed her all night at the 2007 Oscars…as did the eyes of every person on the carpet.
