Gown Hall of Fame

Let’s be honest, the only thing anyone is going to be searching the internet for right now are pictures of the best and worst Oscar gowns. I personally prefer the Met gala since those dresses tend to be more outlandish. For that matter, I also can’t get enough of the Miss Universe national costumes. Here are some of my favorite dresses from various award shows over the years.

I’ll keep this simple because I want to get back to the show, but let’s just say I would happily accept the wardrobes of Cate Blanchett, Dita Von Teese and, surprisingly, Anne Hathaway. So without further ado…

The power of red.

Orange is a hard color to pull off but these are beautiful.

Yellow is equally challenging and not a color you often see on the red carpet which is too bad.

Green is also not terribly common.

Silver and white definitely pulls focus.

Brown is not a color you associate with sexy and yet…
