The 2015 Oscars Best Dressed Were Visions In Red, White, And A Whole Lot Of Sparkle

Each award season, we're treated to dozens of stunning designer gowns. To quote Ice Cube, the awards shows aren't a track meet, they're a marathon — and the Oscars are the final sprint towards the finish line. Just like any other marathon, there has to be a winner... or ten. From Lupita to Emma to J.Lo, these celebrities were the best dressed on the 2015 Oscars red carpet.
