The Oscars award ceremony is one of the most highly anticipated and prestigious, with Hollywood and international film stars gathering to mark the film achievements of the year. Here, we take a look at some show-stopping dresses that might be worn for the 2018 Oscars. Many actresses wore black to the Golden Globes and the Baftas to show solidarity against misconduct in the film industry, and there are rumours that this might also be the case for the Oscars. The haute couture collections are a good indicator of what we might see on the red carpet, and always offer some of the most exclusive and glamorous dresses in the fashion industry.
Christian Dior, Zuhair Murad, Ralph & Russo, Oscar de la Renta and Valentino are all red-carpet favourites and this year it is perhaps the darker colours that will be chosen by the female Oscar nominees. Here, we take a look at the top 21 Oscar-worthy dresses for the 90th edition of the Academy Awards.
