Oscar Legends: the most famous dresses in the history of the award

In the light of the fashionable preparations for the next Academy Award, we recall the outfits of the stars who made us talk about ourselves in the past years.

Marilyn Monroe in Charles LeMaire, 1951

The 50s are the time of the formation of red carpet fashion. It was then that the new look from Dior matured with its inherent post-war romanticism, the theatricality of Givenchy and the feminine style of Balenciaga. In the same decade, three major stars of Western cinema shone — Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, who, in fact, “walked” the masters’ design creations, giving them wide publicity. However, girls often borrowed dresses not from collections sewn by fashion designers, but from their own costume rooms, as was the case with Monroe.

At the 1951 Oscar, the actress appeared in a magnificent black outfit by Charles LeMaire, who dressed the troupe of the film “All about Eve”. Marilyn played one of the leading roles in it, and the film itself then received as many as six statuettes. To present the award to colleagues for the best sound, the diva chose a dress that originally belonged to a completely different celebrity: in it, a few months before the event, the heroine of Valentina Cortese was seen in the tape “House on Telegraph Hill”. However, Monroe was not at all confused by this: throwing a fur coat over her find, she gracefully walked to the Pantage Theater, where no one could take their eyes off the uncrowned queen.

Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy, 1954

Unlike Marilyn Monroe, who never received the coveted statuette, Audrey Hepburn was elevated to the title of Oscar-winning actress for her performance in the film “Roman Holiday”. For the triumphant exit for the award, she wore a lace dress from Givenchy, which became the first “off-screen” experience of her collaboration with the designer. The outfit was identical to the work of costume designer Edith Head, in which Hepburn appeared in the final frames of the picture. However, the Givenchy dress had a relatively shorter length and greater modesty, which emphasized the subtle beauty of the French fashion designer’s muse.

To date, “Audrey’s floral dress” has its own page in the English Wikipedia as an example of an ideal social outlet. It was recognized as the best Oscar outfit by Time magazine and one of the most expensive dresses in history: at the 2011 vintage auction, it was sold for almost 132 thousand dollars, which is quite good even by Hollywood standards.

Grace Kelly in Edith Head, 1955

Edith Head, a full-time designer at Paramount Studios, was more famous than any movie actress in the 50s. During her long career, she has worked on more than a thousand foreign films and received eight (!) Oscars in the nomination “best costume designer”. Head dressed Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Debbie Reynolds and Grace Kelly, not only on the screen, but also off it, turning unremarkable starlets into the most stylish women of the era.

One of Edith’s most famous creations is a dress for Miss Kelly, who in 1955 received an award for the image of a “country girl” in the George Seaton tape. Made of blue satin and complemented with light drapery and straps, it became an American-style glamour classic, repeated many times afterwards. The cold color, which was neglected at pompous events, preferring the fashion for monochrome, gave Grace the necessary status to her appearance. Armed with this, she soon performed her last and main role – the wife of Prince Rainier and the magnificent Princess of Monaco.

Barbra Streisand in Scassi, 1969

At the 41st Academy Awards Ceremony, Barbra Streisand won two awards at once. One — for his debut role in the film “Funny Girl”, the second – for the most tasteless outfit. The creator of the mesh pantsuit with sequins, which all the leading media thundered about the day after the Oscar, turned out to be Canadian designer Arnold Skazi. He offered Streisand a choice between “cute and conservative” attire and, conversely, “too eccentric and unlike anything.” The young actress, who then only dreamed of world fame, of course, chose the latter, and, as it seemed to her, did not lose. “God, I didn’t even think about the spotlights! When they caught fire, my costume became completely transparent! – Barbra told in one of the interviews. — I felt so awkward…”.

Over time, a fashion blunder played into the hands of both personalities: the “funny girl” was named the owner of the most famous costume from the red carpet, and orders not only from Hollywood stars, but also from top officials of the state poured in to the Fairy tale. Barbara Bush, for example, appeared in his outfit at the inauguration of her husband, George H.W. Bush, and Hillary Clinton chose designer dresses for almost every outing. Streisand herself secured Arnold the status of her main dresser, and a few years later he wrote a memoir, “The women I dressed (and undressed).”

Cher in Bob Mackie, 1986 and 1988

Cher surpassed her colleague on stage twice, first shocking the audience in the costume of an “Indian”, and then in the “exaggerated” outfit of an oriental woman. Both images were prepared for her by Bob Mackie, an American designer known for his collaborations with Judy Garland, Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli and Tina Turner. In Hollywood, he is called the “sultan of sequins”, creating clothes for women who are not afraid of being noticed. Cher’s Oscar-winning toilets definitely prove this thesis, summarizing that fashion is primarily art.

“In 1986, I didn’t get a nomination for The Mask, and everyone said that it was because of my habit of dressing not like a serious actress,” Cher said. “Okay, I wanted to be noticed by the Academy, but at the same time I didn’t want to not belong to myself.” For perseverance and the desire to follow only her desires, the sweet-voiced actress received her award a couple of years later. “Oscar” Cher then rejoiced like a girl, jumping and dancing in a transparent dress with a shiny fringe: “When Jane Fonda saw me, she was laughing like crazy. It’s great that our ideas with Bob bring such emotions to people!”

Madonna in Bob Mackie, 1991

A significant year for Bob Mackie was also 1991, when Madonna ordered an outfit from him for the 63rd Academy Awards ceremony. On it, the singer was preparing to perform the song “Sooner or Later”, which, being the soundtrack to the movie “Dick Tracy”, won a golden statuette.

The day before, Madge promised that she would come to the evening with the most famous man of the era, and also try on an unexpected, but familiar image. And so it turned out: the pop queen went to the press on the arm of Michael Jackson, and her dress, coupled with a fur cape, appealed to the fashion of the 50s and the immortal style of Marilyn Monroe.

Nicole Kidman in Christian Dior, 1997

Equally impressive at the Oscars was the wife of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, who at that time had not even thought about divorce. The actor, nominated for best actor, was wearing a classic black tuxedo, while his red-haired darling was wearing a luxurious Christian Dior dress.

For 1997, it was completely unprecedented: firstly, its design resonated with the then red carpet fashion (everyone wore only black cases and nude chiffon outfits), and secondly, its author was a “newcomer” from the French house Dior. John Galliano, who assumed the post of creative director of the brand a few months ago, thanks to this exit, Kidman gained enormous popularity, and then the support of other world stars.

Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph Lauren, 1999

Two years after Nicole’s triumph, America has found a new style icon. She became the 25-year-old actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who won an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love. The girl came for the award in a pale pink Ralph Lauren dress, which reminded the guests of the evening of the era of Balenciaga and Jacques Fata.

Made of taffeta and decorated with a V-neck, it had a very simple design, but at the same time it was incredibly elegant. Gwyneth was constantly compared to Grace Kelly, hinting at good taste and the courage to go against the trends. After all, before Paltrow’s release, no one dared to wear pink, associating this color with well-known stereotypes.

Bjork in Marjan Pejoski, 2001

If the image of Gwyneth can be confidently attributed to the best Oscar outfits, then Bjork’s “swan” costume traditionally appears in the “tops” with the most unpleasant epithets. “Terrible”, “tasteless”, “outrageous” – as soon as the invention of designer Marjan Pejoski, who was only 15 years old at the time of the creation of the outfit, was not called.

With Bjork, he was brought together by a love of outrageous and a desire to pay tribute to Busby Berkeley — one of the few directors whose musicals the singer watched with adoration. In his film “Ladies”, you can notice outfits with an abundance of snow-white feathers, which just decorated her costume. Plus, the debutante of the award considered the fertility symbol very appropriate in the context of Hollywood, so, in addition to the swan wrapped around her neck, she took a small clutch egg to the ceremony. “I knew that this might be my first and last appearance at this kind of event, and of course I wanted to be remembered,” Bjork said after her disastrous exit— “In any case, guys, it’s just a dress!”.

The black PR of the white swan, which continued until the next Oscar, provided the performer with a full sold-out of her album “Vespertine”, the cover of which was not without a cult outfit. Marjan also received good bonuses in the form of a star pilgrimage to his newly opened atelier. There were hundreds of freaks in line for something that is “easier to see than to describe” – they were just as crazy as Lars von Trier’s muse, who loves to laugh and be funny.

Julia Roberts in Valentino, 2001

In the same year, the actress Julia Roberts was “celebrated”, who not only received a statuette for her role in the film “Erin Brockovich”, but also made a certain contribution to the fashion of the beginning of the 21st century. Her spectacular fashion show in a black velvet dress influenced the Hollywood tradition of wearing exclusively new outfits to celebrations. Vintage from the house of Valentino, chosen by Julia among a dozen other brands, came from 1992, which Garavani dedicated to the most beautiful movie actresses.

The only innovation of the fashionable invention was a striped organza train that stretched from the waist of the “beauty”. Her look was completed with a laconic bun, small diamond earrings and a bracelet, but the main decoration of Roberts that evening was a gold figurine, which she held with undisguised pride. “I’ve dressed a lot of famous women,” Valentino shared after the Oscar broadcast, “but only Julia made me really happy. When she came out for the award in my dress, I almost cried with delight. This moment will definitely be one of the most important in my career.”

Halle Berry in Elie Saab, 2002

The Academy Awards red carpet is capable of literally overnight elevating a designer to the top of the most sought-after personalities in the industry. So, Lebanese couturier Elie Saab, who in the early noughties was just recruiting clients from overseas, woke up famous after the Oscar night, where actress Halle Berry was recognized as the most stylishly dressed star.

Angelina Jolie at Atelier Versace, 2012

The image of Halle Berry held the position of “the best” for 10 years, until Angelina Jolie’s naked leg entered the Oscar. Her velvet dress from Atelier Versace with a high slit and a “tulip” top eclipsed all last year’s celebrity outings and set the bar high for the future. Even today, it is impossible to say with certainty that any of the images stirred up the public more than the one presented by the mother of six children together with Donatella Versace. At least, Twitter users who addressed more than a hundred thousand messages to Jolie’s dress did not experience such a “boom” anymore.

By the way, hashtags alone were not enough that day. During the online broadcast of the celebration, the @AngelinaRightLeg account appeared on the network, dedicated to the personalized part of the star’s body, which she dramatically exposed at every opportunity. “Look, I’m here!”, “I’m beautiful, aren’t I?” — appeared on the ironic Twitter page, which created even more noise around the actress’s triumph.

Anne Hathaway in Prada, 2013

A year later, “Angelina’s foot” was joined on the web by “Anne Hathaway’s nipples”, which defiantly shone through her pink Prada dress. The piquant detail was considered inappropriate within the framework of such a status event, calling the “bow” of the heroine of “Les Miserables” the main blunder of the 85th Oscar ceremony. The outrage of critics was the result of a banal lack of time that the actress faced on the way to preparing for the evening, because literally three hours before the exit she was going to wear a completely different outfit.

“I was looking at my Valentino dress and already imagined how I would rise in it for an award—” Hathaway told People reporters. “A little later I found out that Amanda Seyfried was going to wear something similar, and I was forced to choose a new look for myself.” Among all the toilets offered to the actress, she liked the satin model from the Prada collection, which had an accentuated tuck on the chest. She, according to stylists Ann and her husband, added the necessary sharpness to the modest ensemble, assuring the star of the right choice. Unaware that he would turn into the most discussed fashion incident, the diva smiled and winked at the press, which was awkwardly whispering behind the camera lenses. At this time, “Hattaway nipples” shone in the top of all social networks, declaring that they won in the nomination “Best Supporting Actress” without any support.

Jennifer Lawrence at Christian Dior, 2013

In the anniversary year for the film award, Hathaway was not the only one who felt awkward. Jennifer Lawrence, who came to the ceremony in a magnificent Christian Dior Haute Couture dress, presented to her as an act of cooperation with the company, fell right on the way to the statuette. The bulky hem, coupled with the high heels of Brian Atwood, prevented the graceful exit of the girl, securing her the status of the most awkward actress in Hollywood. She confirmed it both in 2014 and 2015, stumbling even in less intricate clothes.

Thanks to a kind of business card, Jennifer, which was annually exaggerated by most of the media, Dior dresses received excessive attention in the advertising equivalent. The prices of the outfits in which the Oscar-winning actress fell astronomically crept up, reaching $ 4 million. Thus, her soft pink bustier dress became the most expensive in the history of the Oscar, which overnight put the girl on a par with all the above-mentioned personalities.

In addition to the fact that this azure-blue dress is just fantastically beautiful and really suits Lupita Nyong’o, he really had a place in history: in 2014, Nyong’o received an Oscar in the Best Actress nomination for playing the role of the slave Patsy in the Steve McQueen film 12 Years of Slavery.

The resounding victory is notable for the fact that for Nyong’o, this film became an acting debut: before, the actress had not even starred in episodic roles. In addition, she became the first African to be awarded an Academy Award: despite the fact that Lupita grew up in Mexico, her parents are from Kenya.

“When I look at this statuette, I think: every child, no matter where you come from, all your dreams are meaningful,” she said from the stage. McQueen’s tape that night was recognized as the best film of 2013.

Lady Gaga in Azzedine Alaïa, 2015

Lady Gaga’s dress, which she wore almost five years ago, almost overtook Jolie’s famous dress in the number of memes created on its basis. Or rather, not so: the singer’s outfit, created by Azzedin Alaya, has nothing to do with it at all — it’s all the fault of red leather gloves, which users on the web compared with gloves for washing dishes or plumbing work — illustrations are attached.

The dress that evening received mixed reviews — as well as the performance of the artist on the stage of the Dolby Theater. The singer performed three songs from the musical film “Sounds of Music”, which celebrated its 50th anniversary that year. Lady Gaga’s performance was criticized by professional music critics, including, for example, Stephen Sondheim, the author of more than 20 Broadway musicals and the winner of the Academy Award in the nomination “Best Song” for the film “Dick Tracey” (Dick Tracey).

“It was ridiculous and ridiculous. She sang songs without a soul,” he said.

Meryl Streep in an Elie Saab dress, 2017

In 2017, the world learned about the difficult relationship between Meryl Streep and Karl Lagerfeld. The fact is that on the eve of the Oscar, Meryl Streep’s agents contacted Chanel’s management and asked them to sew a dress from the spring-summer couture collection for the actress, only slightly changing it. Lagerfeld himself told about what happened next.

“I made a sketch and we started sewing a dress. A few days later, its representatives called us and informed us that they had found a brand willing to pay. After we gave her a dress worth 100 thousand euros, it turned out that we also have to pay! We make dresses for actresses and give them to them, but we don’t pay. She is a brilliant actress, but this is cheap behavior,” said the fashionable Kaiser.

Later, Streep said that the designer had lied to her.

“The famous couturier Karl Lagerfeld slandered me, my stylist and the famous designer whose dress I chose to wear to the Oscar ceremony. Subsequently, this story was picked up by the world media in order for me not to appear at the Oscars and to humiliate me in the eyes of the press, colleagues and viewers. I still haven’t received an apology from Karl Lagerfeld, because he lied, and journalists printed this lie,” the actress said.

After the actress, stylist Streep intervened in the conflict and told “how it really was.”

“There was no question of any monetary compensation. We did not consider any brand from the position of whether it would pay or not. My company doesn’t work that way, it’s also against Ms. Streep’s professional ethics. All statements that claim the opposite are completely fabricated,” she said.

Chanel’s management put an end to this dispute by issuing an official statement.

“Chanel negotiated with the stylist Meryl Streep about the design of her dress for the Oscar ceremony with the full understanding that she was also considering the proposals of other fashion houses. When the stylist reported that Miss Streep had chosen a dress by another designer, she did not indicate any reason. Chanel wants to express its undying and deep respect for Miss Streep,” the headquarters said.

Anyway, Streep appeared on the Oscar 2017 carpet in a dress with deep sapphire-colored trousers from Elie Saab. Whether the image was successful or not is up to you.

Jennifer Lawrence in a Dior dress, 2018

The glory of the Dior brand at the 2018 Oscar ceremony was made not so much by the outfit itself, but by the cheeky behavior of its owner Jennifer Lawrence (for the umpteenth time). For the award, the actress chose a shining metallic dress in the style of the Golden Age of Hollywood, which was successfully combined with a careless styling. The outfit deservedly got its place in the list of the best-dressed stars, and it would seem that everything was worth finishing, if not for the next antics of the most direct Hollywood star.

The curiosities began even during the arrival of the stars to the Dolby Theater, when the actress was having fun and making faces at the cameras during a photo shoot on the carpet. Later, during the award ceremony, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel asked the actors to be careful not to go on stage immediately after the winner was announced (recalling the curious case a year earlier when Emma Stone mistakenly received the winner’s envelope in the Best Film nomination). At this moment, the camera zoomed in on a confused Stone, and Lawrence was gaily pointing at her friend with her finger.

After the ceremony, when the stars were already leaving for the afterparty, Lawrence noticed her friends from afar and wanted to say hello to them, but decided not to bypass the rows of chairs and climb into the dress right over them. The company in her difficult task was made up of a glass of sparkling wine and the now world-famous iridescent Dior dress, the hem of which the actress kept trying to tighten.

Легенды «Оскара»: самые известные платья в истории премии

The picture that made the Dior dress famous all over the world

Needless to say, several pictures that the journalist managed to take instantly hit the net and spawned hundreds of new memes. Lawrence’s overly cheeky behavior made users doubt her sobriety, and the pages of publications were full of headlines like “Drunk Lawrence surprised everyone with her behavior at the Oscars.” Although there was already so much in the biography of the cheerful and direct Lawrence that an event with her participation without any funny cases can rather surprise. And who knows how many outfits the actress will still be famous for thanks to her laid-back exits.

The American actress took the opportunity to state an important problem faced by the industry. For many celebrities, the red carpet of such a prestigious award is not just a chance to show up in a luxurious couture outfit, but also a way to start a dialogue on a significant topic. In 2020, the Oscar-winning actress appeared on the red carpet in a black tulle Dior dress, embroidered with gold threads, over which she wore a cape. It was he who attracted the attention of the public and literally helped the new image of the star to enter the history of the film award.

Zendeya in a Valentino dress, 2021

The star of the red carpet actress Zendeya drew all the attention to herself and her bright image. In 2021, Hollywood was trying to return to normal life after the pandemic, and any red carpet in the usual format was comparable to a miracle. The star of the Euphoria series made her appearance in front of photographers as spectacular and memorable as possible — this year Zendeya chose a bright yellow Valentino dress.

The outfit was crowned with luxurious Bvlgari jewelry from the collection of high jewelry art.
