While Fashion Month isn’t officially over yet, the Oscars red carpet is the perfect place to reminisce. After all, so many of the stars wore dresses straight off the runway or experimented with new trends we’ve only just begun to consider. There’s no better place for bold style or a powerful political statement than the final ceremony of the year, and as you scroll, you’ll find all the proof you need: 2017’s Academy Awards will be remembered for the icons who made waves all season long. From Ruth Negga to Naomie Harris, there were plenty of fresh faces we welcomed to the scene, but actresses like Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep reshaped their wardrobes right before our eyes. Put all these gorgeous, talented women together, and they make for a pretty notable crowd, don’t you think?
