Best Oscars Red Carpet dresses from 10 years

The red carpet is no more about being randomly dressed. It’s more about being responsibly and sustainably dressed. The red carpet is no more red, it has turned green, raising concerns for degrading environment.

Let us have a look at the favourites from last 10 years, that outshined at Oscars

Jennifer Lopez’s molten metallic Tom Ford, 2019:
J.Lo will always find a way to make a statement on the red carpet—and there are very few celebs who could pull off disco ball chic. But she looks beyond incredible.
Ashley Graham’s slinky black Zac Posen, 2019:
The supermodel was the epitome of Old Hollywood glamour in her perfectly tailored Zac Posen gown.
Gemma Chan’s hot pink Valentino Couture, 2019:
This dress had everything—a bold color, an interesting silhouette…and pockets!
Nicole Kidman’s electric blue Armani Privé, 2018:
The color and the giant bow at the waist made Nicole Kidman’s dress a total showstopper on the red carpet.
Zendaya’s one-shoulder Giambattista Valli, 2018:
Zendaya never looks anything less than effortlessly cool—and the 2018 Academy Awards were no exception.
Allison Janney’s sleek red Reem Acra, 2018:
This was definitely a winner’s dress, as Janney took home the Oscar for her role in I, Tonya. “We loved the shape and the color of this dress!” her stylist Tara Swennen told the Hollywood Reporter. Reporter. “The bold sleeves are modern and eye-catching, and the classic red is timeless.”
Emma Stone’s fringed Givenchy, 2017:
This custom Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy gown proved to be quite the winning look all around at the 2017 Oscars: Not only did Emma Stone win for Best Actress, but her dress appeared on “Best Dressed” lists across the internet.
Taraji P. Henson’s glamorous Alberta Ferretti, 2017:
Taraji P. Henson knows how to command a red carpet—and this sultry velvet off-the-shoulder Alberta Ferretti certainly did at the 2017 Oscars.
Alicia Vikander’s princess-like Louis Vuitton, 2016
It’s a tale as old as time: An actor wears a gown vaguely reminiscent of a Disney princess, and she’ll attract comparisons to it for the rest of time.… But how can you look at Alicia Vikander’s lovely pale yellow Louis Vuitton dress from the 2016 Oscars and not think of Belle from Beauty and the Beast?
Cate Blanchett’s flower-coated Armani Privé, 2016:
Floral evening wear has been done time and time again on the red carpet, but Cate Blanchett managed to revive the sartorial genre with this lovely Armani Privé gown at the 2016 ceremony.
Julianne Moore’s glimmering Chanel, 2015:
The only thing that’ll make you love Julianne Moore’s gorgeous rounded-neckline Chanel gown from the 2015 Academy Awards is learning about all the care and detail that went into its creation—927 hours, according to People.
Viola Davis’s dusty pink Zac Posen, 2015:
Zac Posen sure has a way of creating a red-carpet moment—and the dress he made for Viola Davis in 2015 certainly fits into that legacy.
Lupita Nyong’o’s dreamy blue Prada, 2014:
Lupita Nyong’o accepted her first-ever Oscar in a simple but extremely elegant baby blue Prada dress back in 2014—and it’s still one of our favorites to this day.
Jennifer Lawrence’s elegant, structured Dior, 2014:
Jennifer Lawrence has worn a lot of Dior (and a lot of red) over the years, but this riff on a column silhouette from the 2014 ceremony is up there among the most memorable.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s white caped Tom Ford, 2013:
Can we be honest? The actor and Goop founder smashed red-carpet standards and all but shut it down in this Tom Ford column gown. Of course it would make our list of best Oscars gowns ever.
Angelina Jolie’s high-slit Atelier Versace gown, 2012:
Thanks to this gown, Angelina Jolie was able to do that pose (hand on hip, leg jutting out), which earned her right leg its own Twitter account, inspired millions of memes, and left everyone buzzing for days.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s gold Calvin Klein Collection dress, 2011:
As gold as the Oscar statuette itself, Gwyneth Paltrow’s floor-length column dress from Calvin Klein Collection is a minimalist take on formal evening wear.
Mila Kunis’s delicate lavender lace Elie Saab dress, 2011:
At the 2011 Oscars, Mila Kunis went for an envelope-pushing yet elegant look in this lingerie-inspired lavender gown by Elie Saab haute couture.
Jennifer Lawrence’s red Calvin Klein gown, 2011:
Before she became the Girl on Fire and face of Miss Dior, Jennifer Lawrence (nominated for her role in Winter’s Bone) wore this beautiful figure-hugging crimson Calvin Klein number. How gorgeous!
Reese Witherspoon’s black-and-white Armani Privé, 2011:
Reese Witherspoon is all-American red-carpet royalty, as evidenced by this gown. Plus, we love the vintage Barbie-inspired ponytail.
Jennifer Lopez’s stunning Armani Privé ball gown, 2010:
The updated twist on the traditional train makes Jennifer Lopez’s Armani Privé strapless gown feel completely modern, while the iridescent material gives her just enough sparkle.
Anne Hathaway’s white Armani dress, 2009:
There aren’t many women who can stand out in a simple white strapless dress (on any day besides her wedding day, that is), but leave it to Anne Hathaway to pull it off. Let this be a lesson: A little glitter goes a long way.
Marisa Tomei’s white Versace dress, 2009:
Here’s proof that you can avoid the dreaded “fussy” judgment while sporting more pleats than a JV cheering squad. Marisa Tomei arrived at the Academy Awards in a formfitting one-shoulder origami-inspired gown with a small train and still managed to look elegant and effortless.
