Amy Adams

From the extravagant ruffled skirt to the perfectly fitted bodice, Amy stole the spotlight at the 2013 Academy Awards in this powder blue Oscar De La Renta dress.

Carey Mulligan

Carey’s Prada dress from the 2010 Oscars may have looked like it was adorned in everyday sequins and jewels, but the embellishments — including tiny forks, knives, screws, and bolts — were anything but ordinary. Here’s to thinking outside of the (tool) box!

Next: Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Julianne Hough, Sandra Bullock and more…

Cate Blanchett

In this pale purple Givenchy gown at the 2011 Oscars, Cate turned heads and topped best-dressed lists.

Emma Stone

The Gangster Squad star was a total knockout in this bold Lanvin number at the 2012 Golden Globes.

Halle Berry

Forget playing it safe! Halle donned a shimmery, avant-garde Versace dress for the 2013 Oscars. We think the risk more than paid off.

Isla Fisher

Isla ruled in red at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony thanks to this stunning Oscar de la Renta gown.

Julianne Hough

Citron may not be easy to pull off, but Julianne rocked it effortlessly at the Rock of Ages premiere last year in this daring Kaufman Franco ensemble.

Maria Bello
Via E!

The Prisoners star looked positively sultry in this silver one-shoulder Donna Karan dress at a BAFTA Brits To Watch party.

Oprah Winfrey
Via InStyle

With this eye-catching Gucci number at the 2007 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, the talk-show queen proved her reign extends to the red carpet too.

Rooney Mara
Though she’s known for sporting edgy black dresses, Rooney looked ethereal in this white Givenchy Haute Couture gown at the London premiere for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Sandra Bullock
Via E!

The Gravity actress dazzled in this blush pink Jenny Packham gown at the 2011 Globes.

Viola Davis

Viola was va-va-voom in this cranberry colored Emilio Pucci ensemble at the 2012 Globes.
