oscars 2019 best red carpet looks

Will These Looks Go Down in Oscar Fashion History?

We’d like to thank the Academy for creating an awards show that not only recognizes crowning achievements in cinema, but that also serves as a stage for some of the best fashion moments in history. Lauren Hutton’s pastel Halston gown in 1975? Perfection! Halle Berry’s semi-sheer Elie Saab number in 2002? Don’t even get us started. Lupita Nyong’o’s plunging Prada circa 2014? We’re still wiping away the tears.

Tonight, we’re once again watching with bated breath as the biggest stars in Hollywood—and a few wildly talented newcomers—glide down the red carpet in looks that may go down in fashion history. Here are the best looks from the 2019 Oscars red carpet.
