The Academy Awards can be just as much a showcase for designers as they are for talent in the film industry. Scores of ladies show up in in beautiful, incredibly expensive gowns designed specifically for the event.
When Julia Roberts won in 2001 for “Erin Brockovich,” she rocked a black and white Valentino gown.
Lupita Nyong’o stunned everyone with her blue Prada dress almost as much as she stunned them with her heartbreaking portrayal of the slave Patsy in “12 Years a Slave,” which won her an Oscar in 2014.
Not to be outdone, Cate Blanchett also turned heads while winning in 2014 for “Blue Jasmine” by wearing an Armani Prive worth $100,000 (including jewelry, the entire outfit was worth over $18 million).
Vote for the best dressed Oscar-winning lady of the millennium.
