The 7 Most Memorable Dresses of the 2017 Oscars

It’s one of those nights you want to be that someone in the crowd! The 2017 Oscars certainly didn’t go off without a hitch, but the red carpet did play host to what will certainly go down as some of the most memorable gowns in Academy Award history…

Confident, sexy and oh-so glam! This stunning custom-made Alberta Ferretti gown is a perfect fit for the Hidden Figures starlet Taraji P. Henson, and spoke to the strength of her onscreen character. The bold cut and eternally elegant style of this frock represents a woman who knows her worth, and isn’t afraid to make a statement.

We are going la la over Emma Stone’s Givenchy Haute Couture number, paired with dazzling Tiffany & Co. jewels. Emma took home the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in La La Land, and her dress was a match made in heaven for that special moment in the spotlight. There was exquisite movement to the Givenchy Haute Couture dress and everything about this look said showtime.

This Ralph & Russo gown was the ideal pick for Hailee Steinfeld. Not only did it look like a fairy tale but the dress also spoke to her status as a rising Hollywood style icon and one to watch.

Feathers galore made Octavia Spencer’s Marchesa frock one to remember. Her Forevermark Diamonds sparkling as bright as her inner star. The romantic shade complimented the Hidden Figures star’s lovely complexion, the gown’s neckline providing the kind of attention to details of an equally incredible woman.

Auli’i Cravalho is leading the way on-screen and off in this impeccable Rubin Singer gown. Every bit the Disney princess and more in this look, Auli’i followed her heart to the right dress, the shape rippling like tropical waves. We can’t wait to see where she takes this next!

Ever the golden goddess on the red carpet, Charlize Theron wows in Christian Dior Couture, the impact only heightened by the dazzling Chopard jewels. Like liquid gold this couture piece is moulded into the flawless fit that would give even the golden man himself a run for his money.

Nicole Kidman’s star power roars in this fetching Armani Privé gown. A tough colour to pull off however Nicole manages to find just the right balance. This one is for the books!
