With all the smashing fashion on the red carpet of the Academy Awards over the years, only the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress bring home the winning wardrobes! In honor of the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday, RadarOnline.com is taking a trip down red carpet memory lane, bringing you Oscar winning stars and the gowns they wore on their big night. From Sandra Bullock‘s gold Marchesa Blind Side gown to Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Shakespeare in Love Ralph Lauren look, these are the women who knew how to pick a red carpet winner.
When Gwyneth Paltrow took home the gold in 1998 for Shakespeare in Love, the beautiful blonde looked pretty in pink, with the help of Ralph Lauren. Her feminine fashion inspired formalwear for years to come.
Brad Pitt‘s current lady love Angelina Jolie amped up her big screen bombshell status to Academy Award winning actress the next year, scoring the Best Supporting Oscar for Girl, Interrupted, going in completely the opposite direction. The jet-black haired star gothed up the stage in a dark and dangerous Versace floorlength, which had fashion critics talking for months.
Halle Berry was also dressed to shock when she took the stage in 2001 to accept the Best Actress Oscar for Monster’s Ball in her Elie Saab gown, relying only on floral embroidery to cover her boobs.
Marion Cotillard looked white hot in Chanel when she scored the Best Actress Oscar in 2007 for La Vie En Rose, while Sandra Bullock shimmered in a gold Marchesa in 2010, when she won for her role in The Blind Side.
