7. Janelle Monáe At The 2020 Oscars
Janelle Monáe 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. 

While the star's dress may seem effortless on the red carpet, it actually took four people to help carry the look to her dressing room. So, why was it so heavy? The gown featured over 168,000 hand-embroidered Swarovski crystals — and took 600 hours to make. Forevermark jewelry including a choker, studs and  rings completed the outfit.
