Last year's best supporting actress winner is no stranger to a red carpet risk, but this Calvin Klein gown exceeded all of our expectations. This hand-sewn Francisco Costa design used five different variations of over 6,000 pearls.

The Wild star and best actress nominee had an instant wow-moment when she arrived at the 2015 Oscars in this black and white Tom Ford gown. We love her classic (yet stunning) diamond earrings and bracelet and the off-the-shoulder sleeves.

The 2015 Oscars red carpet was all about showing off stunning couture gowns with extraordinary detailing — including this custom Chanel creation. The best actress nominee said the Karl Lagerfeld design took over 927 hours to make. And the cherry on top? Jaw-dropping Chopard diamonds.

Just like at Bridal Fashion Week, delicate beading was having a serious moment at the 2015 Oscars. And even though the Cake actress was snubbed an Oscar nomination, she had the last word when she showed up right before showtime in this blush-tone, beaded Versace gown. Her classy-yet-sexy slit, rose gold heels and simple makeup puts her at the top of our best dressed list.

You can't go wrong when you hit the red carpet in Alexander McQueen. This best actress nominee stunned in a off-grey, high collar ball gown with intricate embellishments, but kept her look on-point with a simple updo and dangling earrings — because with all that detailing, simple accessories and makeup are a must!

This best actress nominee opted for a sequined Dior Couture gown to standout on the red carpet. But unlike her fellow nominees, we like how she edged up look with black nails and a graphic cat eye.
