The Oscars are one of the biggest events in Hollywood. The Oscars are the best excuse for actors and actresses to get decked up in the fanciest of clothes and accessories with all the glitz and glam. Celebrities arrive on the red carpet in all different kinds of style statements and dresses. Everyone wants to stand out, and hence designers outdo themselves every year. Some crazy ideas work well while others become fashion disasters, but there are always dresses that last in people’s memories for years.
Here we have compiled a list of some of the best and worst dresses worn at the Academy Awards. These dresses are definitely the most unforgettable.
Just as her name suggests, Grace Kelly was a true embodiment of grace and classiness. The tiffany blue dress she wore at the 1955 Oscars is surely unforgettable. Although taken way before Grace became a princess, she looks nothing less than royalty in the picture above. The dress definitely deserves to be on top of this list as the luscious fabric draping and the cold shoulder drapes well around the gorgeous Grace Kelly.
Nicole Kidman never fails to impress with her fashion sense. Whether running errands or walking down the red carpet, Kidman always stuns people with her gorgeous self. She has made several show-stopping appearances at red carpet events, but her look at the 2007 Academy Awards was simply breathtaking. The bright red Balenciaga dress she wore made the world stand still for a while. Sleek and simple, the dress was ethereal on the actress’s slender figure. She chose the cold shoulder neckline and sleek blonde hair that perfectly accentuated her figure and skin tone. Celebrities often wear red on the red carpet, but undoubtedly, no one carried it better than Nicole Kidman.
The dress has a pretty color and a nice shape, but what’s up with those satin cinnamon rolls right on her chest? Charlize Theron wore this questionable garment by Dior at the 2010 Oscars. What was she thinking? Fans were confused by Theron’s choice and shocked to see Dior creating something so horrendous. In all honesty, the dress just screams NO!
