LOS ANGELES — Stars may shine on the Oscars red carpet for all rights and wrong reasons.

In anticipation of stunning – and surprising – fashion at the 94th Academy Awards, supermodel and fashion expert Roshumba Williams shares her top 10 most memorable moments on the Oscars red carpet.

10. Lady Gaga’s Yellow Diamond, 2019

Lady Gaga is an innovator who forged her own path. It’s fitting that she wore a one-of-a-kind 128-carat Tiffany yellow diamond to the 91st Awards.

9. Spike Lee’s Kobe suit, 2020

Spike Lee brought love to the carpet in 2020. The director wore a Lakers-inspired purple and gold custom Gucci suit paired with tall Nikes in homage to the late basketball superstar Kobe Bryant.

8. Angelina Jolie’s slit, 2012

Angelina Jolie always has one leg up when it comes to fashion, but at the 2012 Academy Awards, it was her leg the end. The actress wore a black Versace dress with a thigh-high slit. When she posed for the cameras, red carpet history was made.

7. Celine Dion’s Backward Suit, 1999

Celine Dion’s throwback Dior by John Galliano tuxedo suit and massive fedora is one of the most unforgettable looks of all time. That moment in 1999 was unexpected but totally appreciated.

6. Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s dresses

Trey Parker and Matt Stone brought a bit of comedy to the carpet in 2000. The creators of South Park walked the red carpet dressed like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez to make a statement without saying a word.

5. Lupita Nyong’o’s stolen dress, 2015

Lupita Nyongo’s Calvin Klein dress, adorned with more than 6,000 pearls, was a head-turner at the 2015 Oscars. But it happened the end the carpet that makes it unforgettable. The dress was reportedly stolen from the actress’s hotel room two days after the ceremony. It was found later that week at the same hotel.

4. Cher in Bob Mackie, 1988

Cher broke barriers at the 1988 Oscars. The legendary actress turned to boyfriend Bob Mackie to design this see-through black number. It looks like she got lucky – she won Best Actress this year for her performance in Moonstruck.

3. Sharon Stone’s Button Down, 1998

Sharon Stone had a relaxed but totally glamorous look at the 1998 ceremony. She wore a Gap button-down shirt from her (former) husband Phil Bronstein’s closet with a lavender skirt by Vera Wang. The result was casual, chic and classy.

2. Billy Porter’s tuxedo dress, 2019

Fabulous and uncompromising, Billy Porter ushered in the age of flowing fashion on the carpet in 2019 with a bespoke Christian Siriano tuxedo dress.

1. Björk’s swan dress, 2001

For two decades, Marjan Pejoski’s swan dress inspired endless punchlines and parodies, but it became a pop culture phenomenon. Björk has since said she was confused by the response to her 2001 red carpet. “I was really amazed at how many people thought I was serious. I didn’t want to cause a riot,” the eccentric Icelandic singer later told Britain’s Sunday Times.
