All movie fanatics surely look forward to watching the Academy Awards every year. And as part of being a spectator, you confess to waiting for the best-dressed celebrities who attended the red carpet and who they are wearing. Apparently, these outfits don’t come cheap. Couturiers devote almost the entire year to come up with eccentric designs for every celebrity-client they have who’ll be attending the Oscars. And these actresses don’t care how much it would cost them to appear as stunning as they can be for the night. After all, the whole world is watching them win or lose, they might as well dress for the night. Hence, these movie stars spend so much time looking for the right designer to create elegant and intricate pieces for the most-awaited event of the year.

Jennifer Lawrence

It was J-Law’s Dior Couture gown that stole the show at the Oscar Award in 2013. The four-million-dollar dress was all worth it since she paraded it as she collected her Oscar for her movie Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence was the face of the brand back then, and it was just right that she was given the privilege of wearing the most expensive piece of Dior. It was indeed a well-deserved night for the multi-awarded actress.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman didn’t want to fall short in the 1997 Oscars because her staggering $2 million Christian Dior gown became the talk of the night. She garnered everyone’s attention as she pranced on the red carpet, looking like a goddess on her eclectic Dior gown, together with the dashing, debonair Tom Cruise right by her side the entire time. Kidman wasn’t even on the nominee list that year, but she sure knew how to earn the spotlight.

Hence, the attention of the public. As ever, she appeared her calm and confident self while catching up with other A-listers.

Lupita Nyong’o
