Top Five Most Memorable Oscar Dresses of Past Years

It’s hhhhhhhhhhhhhh-eeeeeeeeeeeeeee-rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  Ah the Oscars.  Two years ago at this time I was standing in a hospital room while my midwife rubbed my back and coached me through my labor pains.  Where was my husband and my support people?  On the couch relaxing and watching the Oscars.  🙂  Even the midwife was making dress comments!  (I’m not sure yet to this day if they were just trying to get me to focus on the dresses and less on my uncomfortableness and if so, they know what this girl likes!)  The good thing was that my own baby girl was born that night!
This story should show you the power of the Oscars.  There have been years that I’ve missed it.  But the dresses live on whether or not you watch.
Here are a few of my most memorable (look tomorrow for my favorite Oscar dresses).  I wish I could say that I saw Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelley, but I don’t have those moments.  Here’s what I do have-

I was not a huge fan of this dress.  I thought the hem in the front was too short, but I must have been the only one who seemed to mind.  This was a dress that you don’t forget, regardless.
Hillary Swank-

Again, not a huge fan of this dress either (I thought her back was a little too thin scary!) but it does down in Oscar history.
Halle Berry-

This was a pretty memorable night at the Oscars and Halle’s dress did not disappoint for a dress that will easily be forgotten!

If you say “swan dress” we all have this image still ingrained in our minds.  ‘Nuff said.
