Oscar Gowns I Love

This was actually a tough job! There have been so many fabulous gowns in Oscar red carpet history – and a ton of not-so-fabulous as well – so picking a few was impossible. I might have gotten carried away! Enjoy this collage of gowns I particularly adored. It isn’t an exhaustive list by any stretch! And I suppose it will be obvious that I tend to prefer color over bland white or basic black.

In 1996 Susan Sarandon won for Dead Man Walking, and I’ve never forgotten her gown, or how she looked that night wearing it. It was a deep copper, and exactly matched her hair. Decided to look for it on the net and found it–number 17 on this memorable (good& bad) Oscar dress site. http://www.buzzfeed.com/leonoraepstein/26-oscar-dresses-you-once-thought-were-soooooooooo-pretty
During my search, discovered it was by Dolce & Cabbana. After the Oscars, Susan donated it to The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where it continues to Wow each time it’s exhibited: http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20130918,00.html
The only other gown as memorable for me, isn’t an Oscar gown but a First Lady gown. Hilary Clinton’s first inaugural gown was a purple lace stunner I’ve never forgotten. http://www.firstclassfashionista.com/archives/57856
