The countdown to the next Academy Awards is on. As we prepare to feast our eyes on the highly-anticipated red carpet event, we're looking back at some of the most memorable looks from the Academy Awards.

The Oscars are one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year both for the ceremony itself and the iconic, celebrity-laden, red carpet.

The annual awards have always been a high-fashion extravaganza, dating back to the first ceremony in 1929. The designs are haute couture, the stylists are the best in the business, and the stars have some of the most talented glam squads in the world.

We can't wait to see what the Oscars bring to the table each year but, in the meantime, you can click through the gallery above to look back at some of the greatest dresses, suits and jumpsuits so far.
