We’re getting really excited about the 89th Academy Awards ceremony taking place this Sunday evening! It’s the most magnificent night for fashion because I think more than any other Hollywood event, celebrities want to put their best, most classic foot forward. There certainly isn’t as much scandal, shock and risk-taking than at say the Golden Globes or the Grammy’s. In anticipation, here is a roundup of the best and most iconic Oscars gowns in recent years.

    Nicole Kidman looked great in red with dark red lips-not a washed out look.

    Octavis Spencer wows in her sparkly beaded dress.

    Michelle Williams’ dress has a stronger colour presence that suits her in that past image, compared to her 2017 look.
