1. Penelope Cruz

Penelope’s blush Atelier Versace gown in ’07 was one of our all-time favorites. The woven corset detailing and cascading train of soft feathers wowed on-and-off the red carpet.

2. Jennifer Lopez

There’s something about J.Lo’s two-tone Chanel dress that still speaks to us today, in 2014. For 2011, this was considered a major couture moment for Jenny from the block and her simplistic hair and makeup were the perfect finishing touches. Oh wait, we take back the simple makeup part, this was the year the bonita rocked MINK lashes.

3. Jessica Alba

In 2006, Jess Alba took things to the next level in this gold lace Versace dress. Not only did the hue complement her sun-kissed complexion, but the halter-style silhouette accentuated her curvaceous bod. Loved it!

4. Zoe Saldana

We love Zoe Saldana for always bringing a fresh breath of fashionable air to any red carpet she steps on, and the 2013 Oscars were no different. This belted, structured, floral-embroidered Alexis Mabille gown stunned on her figure. 

5. Cameron Diaz

Even though Cameron’s negligee-inspired black dress was slightly scandalous for the Oscars in 2000, it proves sheer is one trend that will never go out of style. 

6. Salma Hayek

We dare you to find a more striking blue hue on Salma. She wore Prada in ’06 and everyone was thankful for it.
