The Best Oscars 2020 Dresses That Will Have You Reeling For Years To Come

Share

The pinnacle of awards show season is here — the 92nd Academy Awards, which means it's time to start breaking down some of the best looks to grace the red carpet. As history has proven, the biggest night in Hollywood is reason enough for guests to pull out all the stops; offering some of fashion's most iconic outfits of all time (see also, Celine Dion's backwards suit by John Galliano and Cher's super-sheer embellished dress in 1988). And needless to say, some of the best dresses from the 2020 Oscars are sure to have the masses reeling for years to come.

On Feb. 9, your favorite celebs arrived to Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, in dresses that were as riveting as they were occasion appropriate. Regina King opted for a blush one-shoulder number that's teaming with the events theme of classic Hollywood glamour. While the Joker's leading lady, Zazie Beetz, took the timeless little black dress to the next level in a second-skin sequined iteration — complete with an opulent bib necklace. While both are very different interpretations of the night's unspoken refinement.

If the the red carpet from award shows past are of any indication, you can expect a number of memorable frocks; so much so that it might be tough to sift through each and every one. That said, TZR has rounded up some of the night's best looks for you, just ahead.
