Looking more radiant and gilded than an actual Oscar statue, Fawcett presented the award for Best Film Editing alongside Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni in a stunning gold dress.
If anybody can look glowing in a clingy brown dress, it's Julia Roberts. While her relationship to Kiefer Sutherland didn't work out, her career certainly did — Pretty Woman was released just three days before this Academy Awards ceremony, making her a massive star that year.
Eight years before her historic win for Best Actress in 2002, Berry walked the red carpet in this lavender number made of both velvet and satin — very '90s, yet she somehow made it look good.

Looking as gorgeous as an Oscar statue herself, Best Supporting Actress nominee Viola Davis strutted down the red carpet in an iridescent Reem Acra gown, accessorizing it with glamorous jewels and voluminous hair.
A year before her win for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Help, Spencer wore a striking black and gold off-the-shoulder gown to the 2011 Oscars.
