The 86th Academy Awards are this weekend, and if you’re a big fan of Hollywood, you know that means lots of fabulous (and some horrible) designer dresses, oversized diamond necklaces, big hair, loads of makeup, lots of Joan Rivers and Giuliana Rancic and A-listers shmoozing on the red carpet. It’s a fashion critic’s dream. And though we don’t know who is taking home the night’s top prizes, we do know that the nominees are sure to be turned OUT in big ball gowns and haute couture dresses from the likes of Valentino, Givenchy, Prada, Gucci, Tadashi Shoji and more.

In honor of the upcoming fashions, we’ve rounded up the 20 luckiest Oscar dresses from the past 20 years. Aka, the dresses that actually produced a “win” (no, not a best dressed win–an actual gold statue!). Click through the slideshow above and enjoy such gems as Gwyneth Paltrow‘s big pink Ralph Lauren gown to Julia Roberts in vintage Valentino. Enjoy!
