20. Grace Kelly — 1955

Grace Kelly is one of Hollywood’s most elegant icons, but her look from the 1955 Oscars was especially remarkable. The pale ice blue dress designed by Edith Head featured a dainty double strap and a luxurious silk texture that hugged her body perfectly. Suited for the classy woman she is, Kelly wore a pair of sleek white gloves as accessories and delicate pearl earrings. She quaffed her hair into an updo which was topped with romantic rosebuds throughout.

19. Audrey Hepburn — 1964

Audrey Hepburn was another Hollywood icon that looked absolutely striking whenever she stepped onto the red carpet! Hepburn’s floral look from the 1964 Academy Awards was definitely one of her most memorable. The Givenchy number was the epitome of old Hollywood glam with it’s A-line shape and couture detailing. The dress flattered her tiny figure and the belt-detailing around her waist further emphasized her petite frame.
