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.

America Ferrera

Looking like an ethereal mermaid goddess in her teal modified Jenny Packham gown.

Joanna Newsom

Wearing an Honor gown, Joanna Newsom resembles a modern Grace Kelly.

Faith Hill

Everything from her slicked back short ‘do to her textured metallic J. Mendel frock screamed glamour.

Laura Dern

Laura Dern looked sexy and slinky in Alberta Ferretti’s shimmering floor-length dress. 

Zoe Saldana

Wearing nude without looking bland is an incredibly tricky feat — one that Saldana pulled off gracefully in Atelier Versace.

Lupita Nyong'o

In custom Calvin Klein, Nyong’o one-upped pretty much everyone else on the red carpet in this pearlescent number. Stunning.

Rosamund Pike

You can’t beat a babe in a red dress and Pike — with the help of that high slit and ruby-hued Givenchy Haute Couture — definitely turned heads.

Cate Blanchett

This textured black John Galliano for Maison Margiela gown with its sultry back cutout was one of the evening’s showstoppers.

Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo knows her hue and embraced sparkle and a full skirt to go full modern princess — and she killed it.

Emma Stone

Skipping played-out gold and going for spring’s trendy lemony chartreuse hue, Stone rocked her custom Elie Saab with a Gatsby-esque look.
