The Academy Awards are on Sunday, and that means we’ll soon be picking apart every stitch and hem of the clothes worn by the stars up for the awards. And then we’ll promptly forget about them a day or two later. This illustration, put together by Media Run, commemorates all of the dresses worn by every Best Actress winner since 1929.
Other than the pleasure of looking at the dresses and remembering them from the occasion (depending on your age), it is interesting to see how styles change over the decades. The 50s are classically elegant, as one might expect, while the love/hate relationship people have with 80s fashion is on full display with wildly different and highly original designs each year. The early ceremonies were a far less extravagant occasion and fashion choices reflected that, while today’s events see luxurious flowing gowns from the world’s leading designers.
How many do you remember?
