Nicole Kidman, Dior
While the Australian actress wasn't nominated for an Oscar at the 1997 Academy Awards, she made fashion history with the chartreuse dress she wore on the red carpet that year. Her Christian Dior Couture gown was from John Galliano's very first couture collection for the house and marked one of the first instances of truly modern couture appearing on the red carpet.
Rihanna, Giambattista Valli
A Rihanna gown for the history books. The Fenty mogul stepped onto the 2015 Grammys red carpet wearing a Giambattista Valli couture gown. "I was mesmerised not only by how well she wore the dress but also by her fresh and effortless beauty," Valli told InStyle. "She looked like she had just taken a shower and zipped up her dress to walk the red carpet."
Cardi B, Thierry Mugler
Cardi B wore an archival look from Thierry Mugler’s Fall 1995 Couture show, originally shown at the Cirque d’Hiver for the 2019 Grammy awards where she was nominated in seven categories - including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Best Rap Album.
Jennifer Lawrence, Dior
Zendaya, Ralph & Russo
For the 2018 GQ Men Of The Year Awards, Zendaya walked the red carpet in a Ralph & Russo couture gown.
Margot Robbie, Chanel
As a Chanel muse, it's unsurprising Margot Robbie looked to the archives for her 2020 Oscars gown. Paying homage to Claudia Schiffer, the Australian actress wore a look from the fashion house's spring 1994 runway.
Cara Delevingne, Chanel
The supermodel complemented her cropped silver hair at the 2017 Met Gala with a shimmering suit from Chanel's spring 2017 couture collection.
