Jane Fonda has always been a groundbreaker. This picture from the 1972 Oscars is just one example. It’s not really noticeable from that angle, but Fonda chose to attend the ceremony wearing an all-black ensemble featuring a tailored suit-style top and a pair of pants. Yes, pants. At an award show in the early seventies. What a queen.
Fonda ended up taking home the best actress award that night for her role in the movie “Klute” and gave everyone another memorable moment when instead of an acceptance speech she just chose to say “there’s a great deal to say it and I’m not going to say it tonight. I would just like to really thank you very much.”
Some may argue that Zoe Saldana was a little over the top in this Givenchy Haute Couture dress that she wore to the 2010 Oscars. Others may argue that she absolutely killed it. The majestic train, sequins, and ruffles are in all the right places in our opinion.
This dress is very unique and she ended up on the 2009 best-dressed list.
At the 2022 Academy Awards, actress Kirsten Dunst showed up wearing a rosy red dress that blended with the red carpet almost too well. The textile of this frilly gown was layered and manipulated to create a wave-like texture at the bottom and a cloud-like texture around the chest.
Dunst's dress was vintage, but it was definitely not the kind of vintage you stumble upon at a random thrift store. The Hollywood star was fortunate enough to wear a vintage Christian Lacroix to the ceremony and look like a melting, deconstructed rose. This is how you win the vintage game, people.
Not only is Julia Roberts incredibly talented, but she is also drop-dead gorgeous. She wore this vintage black and white Valentino dress to the awards. She looked absolutely unforgettable in it.
We definitely vote this dress as one of our favorites that we’ve seen her in.
This isn’t the first time that Gwyneth Paltrow looks like a real-life Barbie. She wore this pink Ralph Lauren gown to the 71st Academy Awards back in 1999 where she won the Oscar for Best Actress.
This dress became an instant classic and she looks beautiful in it.
