This Sunday sees the 85th Annual Academy Awards – that’s the Oscars to you and I.
Last year Cate Blanchett wowed in Givenchy Couture, while Mila Kunis looked pretty in a lavender Elie Saab couture creation. Every year throws up an iconic look to better the last, and ahead of our Oscars coverage, we’ve put together the ultimate Oscars retrospective of looks you remember, and some you don’t.
From a tearful Gwyneth in pink Ralph Lauren in ’99 (was it really that long ago?) to Audrey Hepburn picking up Best Actress for Roman Holiday in ’54 and that naughty duo Pam and Liz in 2001, take a journey back through the history of the Oscars’ red carpet...
