10. Janelle Monáe at the 2020 Oscars
Janelle showed off her risk-taking style with this silver hooded Ralph Lauren gown. The star, who performed the opening song, paired the look with a bold lip and glam jewels.

From the dramatic hooded design to the impeccable fit and the overall mystique, this was a flawless look. But you know what's even more astounding? The dress was made out of over 168,000 Swarovski crystals and required more than 600 hours of hand embroidery. She could hardly walk in the gown and had to be assisted by a team, but so what? Anything for a glamorous Oscar night, right?
