With the 2015 Academy Awards taking place this weekend, we roundup the best gowns of all time.

Once upon a time the Oscars was solely concerned with movies, these days it's all about dresses.

The red carpet at the 2015 Oscars is 500 feet long, that leaves a lot of room for posing to ensure the all important gowns are captured in all their glory.

In the 86 years since the very first Academy Awards took place, the ceremony (and the fashion) has come a long way.

From Audrey Hepburn's classical take on formal dressing in the fifties to the fully fledged glamour of the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz in the 90s.

Some of the most iconic dresses of all time have cropped up at the Academy Awards.

Ahead of the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, here is our roundup of the best Oscar dresses:


The 2015 Oscars take place on Sunday 22nd February at 5.30 (PST) - 1.30 (GMT).
