Red is such a difficult color to pull off, yet many actresses still try to wear it at many significant events, and we're so happy they do. With the Oscars coming up, many are reminiscing about past gowns that made their mark on the red carpet. Out of all the frocks that have graced the Oscars over the years, which red gowns stand out as being the best?
In 2005, the actress went with a bold look at the Oscars in a strapless red Carolina Herrera gown that had structuring on the bodice and a fishtail train. She accessorized the ensemble with a gorgeous diamond bracelet and diamond necklace. Bright red lips and a dark hairstyle completed the look.
The supermodel made a dramatic entrance at the 2008 Oscars in a red John Galliano creation that certainly turned heads. Pink drop earrings and red slingblack heels added the perfect finishing touches. She later teamed up with MyCokeRewards.com to auction off the gown to help raise money for the Red Dress Campaign for Heart Truth.
In 2007, the blonde beauty attended the Oscars wearing a red Balenciaga halter gown that had a large bow at the neckline. That seemingly simple detail changed what could have been a boring dress into one that's one of the most loved Oscar dresses in recent memory. In 2012, Emma Stone made a big fashion faux pas by wearing an extremely similar Giambattista Valligown.
The English actress wowed on the Oscars red carpet in 2002 in a red one-shoulder body-hugging Ben de Lisi gown that had a stunning red floral single strap. Much like Kidman's gown, it was that one detail that changed everything. From the red clutch to the simple makeup, this look was sheer perfection.
Sound off! Which red dress from Oscar's past is your favorite?
