When the red carpet becomes a runway.

The 2020 Oscars are less than a week away, which means it’s only a matter of days before Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars turn the fanciful affair into a full-on fashion fantasy. Because let’s be real, the Academy Awards might be all about the best of the best in the business, but it’s also the place to make a style statement.

Halle Berry‘s gasp-worthy Elie Saab gown comes to mind. You know, the design that had a sheer top, and only covered her bust with its floral embroidery.

Another memorable fashion moment at the Oscars?

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s crisp white cape dress by Tom Ford that commanded the room as soon as she entered it. It was a drool-worthy piece, not only for its effortlessly elegant silhouette but its edgy asymmetrical structure. And you can never go wrong with a floor-length cape.

As of late, celebrities like Billy Porter, Lady Gaga and Lupita Nyong’o are just a few who aren’t afraid to push the style boundaries on the red carpet.

The Pose star nearly broke the internet after he appeared at the 2019 ceremony wearing a larger-than-life tuxedo gown by Christian Siriano. Of course, how could anyone forget Lupita’s iconic baby blue dress by Prada. Yes, the one she twirled around in, as she sashayed along the red carpet.

We could seriously go on and on about our favorite Oscars designs. So if you’re like us, take a look at the best dresses to ever hit the ceremony’s red carpet in our gallery below.
