Gallery: 30 standout Oscars gowns over the years

If worn right, an Oscar dress can go down in fashion history - and there have been some gorgeous gowns over the years. Remember Hilary Swank's amazing backless Calvin Klein dress in 2005? Or JLO's mint-green Valentino in 2004? Penelope Cruz's 2007 stunning blush Atelier Versace dress still tops almost every best-dressed list as does Halle Berry's exquisite Elie Saab gown, worn in 2002 when she took home the Oscar for her performance in Monster's Ball. And remember the year before last when Emma Stone stunned (also in Elie Saab)? And, of course, last year, Saoirse Ronan was dreamy in in a blush-pink Gucci gown.

We've chosen a number of fabulous Oscar dresses that have wowed us through the last few years - and you can view them in our gallery above.
