Angelina Jolie and that sky-high slit.

Awards season has arrived, and the best show of all is only a few weeks away: The Academy Awards. Honoring the best in film over the past year, this year's Oscar nominees include acting veterans (and style icons) Naomie Harris, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Viola Davis.

The most prestigious ceremony demands the most dramatic red carpet look, which is why Oscar night outfits are often seen as the best in high fashion, period. 

In anticipation of the 89th Annual Academy Awards airing on February 26th, we've pulled together a collection of our favorite Oscars looks from recent history. From Angelina Jolie's thigh-high slit and Michelle Williams' canary yellow gown, to Mila Kunis' lavender lace stunner and Sandra Bullock's dazzling sequins, the Academy Awards red carpet never fail to impress. 

Scroll through some of our top choices of Oscar gowns, and check out our selection of dresses for you to become a red carpet style star.
