Everything You Need to Know About Oscar® Dresses in One Amazing Infographic

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

For some people the Academy Awards® is all about the movies, but for others, it’s about one thing and one thing only: the dresses. There is so much anticipation leading up to the “big day,” and the day after is completely taken over by style pundits — from professional critics to you and me — giving their two cents about the best and worst dresses of the night. The Oscar® gowns that get the most attention are those that are worn by the women winning the most coveted award of the night — the Best Actress award.  The graphics company Mediarun Digital in the U.K. created this stunning infographic of every single dress worn by the Best Actress Oscar® winners and yes, it’s awesome.

We took a gander at these dresses to see what knowledge we could gain. Here are a few things that we deduced:

• The most popular designer for the Best Actress winners is Armani coming in at three appearances. This is followed by Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dior.

• The most popular color for the Best Actress winners is black with 19 appearances, followed by 14 appearances of white, nine dresses in blue, and five in yellow.

• Only four winners have worn slacks (Sissy Spacek in 1981, Barbra Streisand in 1969, Jane Fonda in 1972, and Jodie Foster in 1992).

• In the mix, there are only four totally strapless dresses, a surprisingly low amount.

• Cher wore the craziest dress back in 1988, and in a tie for the least dressy looks are Diane Keaton in 1978 and Sally Field in 1980.

• No actress embraced any type of splash of color until Vivian Leigh wore a gray and red dress in 1940.

Yup, it’s a totally eclectic mix. I have my top five, do you? You can get a closer look at the graphic right here.
