There have been many fashion statements on the red carpet throughout the history of the Oscars.
Here are the five best red-carpet fashion statements:
27th Academy Awards: Grace Kelly’s Edith Head dress
The gorgeous actress Grace Kelly won an Oscar in 1955 for her role performance in The Country Girl. For the awards ceremony, she wore an attractive light blue dress designed by Edith Head. She wore the dress with style and also had a coat at the Oscars that matched. Although some of Grace Kelly’s fame has been lost among modern movie audiences, she will always be remembered by film critics as an actress who shined with beauty and elegance.
71st Academy Awards: Gwyneth Paltrow’s beautiful Ralph Lauren dress
The pink Ralph Lauren dress Gwyneth Paltrow showed off on the red carpet at the 1999 Oscars was such a radiant dress that it even has its own page on Wikipedia. Paltrow was able to walk on the red carpet with grace and style in the dress. At the awards ceremony, she won an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Shakespeare in Love, but her fashion statement will also go down as a big moment in Oscar history.
78th Academy Awards: Keira Knightley’s Vera Wang dress
Another modern actress who showed that she can wear a dress on the red carpet with elegance is Keira Knightley. Knightley wore a custom-made Vera Wang gown that was rich in color at the 2006 Oscars. She also made a nice fashion statement at the awards ceremony by wearing an expensive necklace designed by Bulgari. The dress was donated after the awards ceremony to a charity, Oxfam International.
82nd Academy Awards: Zoe Saldana wears a beautiful Givenchy dress
Actress Zoe Saldana also made a fashion statement at the Academy Awards. The actress, who is known for her roles in Avatar and Colombiana, was beautiful in a dress by Givenchy at the 2010 Academy Awards. The dress had different shades of purple, which lightened up her presence at the awards ceremony. Look for the attractive actress to wear more gorgeous dresses in the future at the awards ceremony as she knows how to shine on the red carpet.
84th Academy Awards: Michelle Williams represents Louis Vuitton well
Michelle Williams represented the fashion designer Louis Vuitton well on the red carpet with her rose dress at the 2012 Academy Awards. Williams, who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in My Week with Marilyn, wore the dress with a relaxed sense of beauty. On a side note, she also made a great fashion statement with her marigold dress at the Oscars in 2006.
