Back in the Golden Ages (a time before COVID-19!), the highlight for many during awards season wasn't just the winners and losers, but what the stars were wearing on the red carpet.
In fact, some might argue that the excitement of seeing the celebs step out in their jaw-dropping beautiful gowns (or sometimes, ridiculously hideous ones), was the ultimate high. Jennifer Lopez, Elle Fanning, Ava DuVernay, and Regina Hall are among those who seemingly never get it wrong.
