The 2019 Academy Awards finally arrived — and with them, the most anticipated red carpet of the year. Really, it doesn't get more A-list or more glamorous than the Oscars, and the fashion stakes are never so high. In fact, what stars wear on this night can go down in Hollywood history and be remembered for decades. Just think of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, and their unforgettable Oscar gowns. No pressure, y'all.

What we really love to see, though, are the ladies who take big risks with their selections, who put spins on classics or dare to try unconventional silhouettes and unexpected colors. Thankfully, this year's show was not a let-down. A plunging back? Charlize Theron delivered. How about dramatic capes? Thank you, Glenn Close and Melissa McCarthy. Head-to-toe sequins? You can count on Jennifer Lopez for that. Delightfully decadent layers of pink tulle? Yup, Kacey Musgraves, Linda Cardellini, and Helen Mirren all appeased our inner princesses with their frothy designs.

But who wore your favorite dress for the iconic red carpet walk? Click through to see all the boldest and brightest style moments from cinema's most surreal soiree. You won't be forgetting these looks anytime soon.
