The most iconic Oscars dresses from the last 20 years
Ahh, the Oscars are upon us. Otherwise known as the Academy Awards (or the pop culture fanatic's Superbowl), Oscars night is an evening known for showcasing the glitz and glam of Hollywood in all its fame and glory. The first-ever Academy Awards ceremony took place on May 16, 1929, saw under 300 guests, and wasn't broadcast to the public. In fact, according to The Telegraph, the name "Oscar" was not yet in use.
The Academy Awards have certainly evolved since their inaugural ceremony nearly a century ago — for example, the average number of viewers of the 2016 Academy Awards was a mere 34.4 million. However, one constant has remained throughout the years — those glamorous Oscars gowns.
We're guessing you've likely never made it to the Academy Awards. However, you can live vicariously through the 20 most iconic Oscars dresses from years past. From Gwyneth Paltrow's pretty-in-pink moment to the infamous swan dress, this trip down Oscars lane has all the hits.
