Audrey Hepburn, Goldie Hawn, Halle Berry, and Nicole Kidman are a few of the talented leading ladies who have made an appearance at the Academy Awards since the event began in 1929. And while those stars also happen to be Oscar winners, a number of other celebrities have had memorable moments in gorgeous gowns when they attended the ceremony.

Since the beginning of the elite awards show, iconic designers such as Christian Dior and Valentino have dressed the famous attendees. From Cher's daring Bob Mackie creations to Gwyneth Paltrow's pink Ralph Lauren dress, stars have continued to take our breath away on Hollywood's biggest night. 

Even if you were born long after celebs like Audrey Hepburn and Barbara Streisand attended the show, it's still fascinating to see how much red carpet fashion has changed over the years. For example, Cher donned a racy outfit in 1973 when she wore a gold crop-top and matching skirt, while Alicia Vikander went the princess-inspired route in a strapless yellow gown for her Oscar look.

From simple silhouettes to metallic golds and billowing ballgowns, these celebs brought the drama and elegance with their stunning looks. Click through to see the most stunning Oscars dresses from the past few decades.
