The French actress picked up the Best Actress Oscar in 2008 for her performance in La Vie en Rose, sporting a gorgeous fish scale Jean Paul Gaultier dress. A side-swept 'do and an eye-catching long necklace completed the daring ensemble.

The Shakespeare In Love star's girly pink Ralph Lauren gown in 1999 is one of the most memorable gowns in Oscar fashion history. Paltrow played up the youthful style by accessorizing with a pink shawl and a diamond choker necklace fit for a princess, which her father, the late Bruce Paltrow, actually bought for her.

The Monster's Ball actress' daringly sheer Elie Saab creation dazzled us in 2002, and it still does now, more than 13 years later. Along with her edgy pixie cut, we can't think of another actress in Hollywood who could pull off this look to such perfection.

The Brokeback Mountain actress hit it out of the park in this amazing canary yellow Vera Wang gown in 2006. From the dress' unconventional plunging v-neck, to her romantic low bun with side-swept bangs, Williams hit all of the right notes with this look.

The Grace of Monaco star is another actress who made the Oscars fashion hall of fame in a memorably bright colored gown. Kidman sported a chartreuse John Galliano for Christian Dior dress in 1997, and it is widely regarded as having changed the fashion red carpet game thanks to its shocking color. The sleeveless style also fit Kidman like a glove, and impressively had no wrinkles in sight.
