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
