The Oscars are awarded this Sunday, 28 February, and the ceremony will see hundreds of Hollywood actresses and actors take to the red carpet to honour the best films and acting talent of the year. Hollywood royalty will also pay homage to some of the world’s best fashion designers, with catwalk creations moving from the runway to the red carpet. The haute couture collections are a good indicator of what we might see on the red carpet on Sunday, and provide some of the most exclusive and indeed glamorous dresses in the fashion industry.
Many actresses are expected to wear pieces by some of the most coveted designers who showed at the haute couture spring/summer 2016 collections, with classic names such as Armani Privé, Oscar de la Renta and Chanel often among the most popular. Take a look at the top 21 Oscar-worthy dresses for the 88th Academy Awards.
