Cinema Chic: Oscar fashion throughout the decades

This Sunday night marks the 89th Academy Awards, and what's unquestionably the most glamorous of all red carpet events. This highly anticipated fashion extravaganza is viewed by millions and draws couch critics across the globe compiling their list of the best and worst dressed. Because it's evolved into an event unto itself, almost surpassing the prestigious award ceremony, I thought it would be fun to chronicle some of the most memorable Oscar fashions throughout the decades. As I did my research, the editing process was brutal! As you can imagine, there were countless images of gorgeous gowns on stunning women. Therefore I've narrowed it down to 10; a nice round number. Not necessarily my favorite, or even the most beautiful, but those that stand out, have a story, or make a statement. In some way their fashion legacy endures....

The countdown to the 2017 Oscar red carpet begins and I can't wait to see how the ladies of La La Land dazzle us! They're in good hands with their stylists and I'm sure the ladies AND gentleman ( we can't forget the boys ! ) won't disappoint.

I'll be feverishly taking notes as I prepare for the red carpet recap on ABC with my good friend Alicia Smith.... hmmmm I wonder who will make the list this year
