We love watching our favorite films win big at the Oscars. Truly, nothing beats the look on an actor’s face when they realize they’re getting lucky with a little gold man. But sometimes, the real prize of the Academy Awards is spotting all the stunning dresses. From the red carpet to the living room, these Oscars dresses are inspiring winning design in our spaces.

Emma Stone in Elie Saab, Academy Awards 2015 / Elle Décor

Emma Stone always stuns on the red carpet, but at the 2015 ceremony, this beaded beauty gave us visions of a room mixed with classic Hollywood Regency style and flattering modern decor. Yellow-gold hues and a glittering tear drop chandelier are musts for completing this look at home.

Lupita Nyong’o in Prada, Academy Awards 2014 / HGTV by Tessa Neustadt

Lupita Nyong’o had a Cinderella moment in this plunging, pale blue Prada gown, which she wore while accepting her award for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years A Slave. We hope she took this flowy princess look to a relaxing coastal enclave to celebrate.

Leslie Mann in Zac Posen, Academy Awards 2017 / Morgan Levy

Although there’s nothing casual about Leslie Mann’s Oscar look this year, her poppy-colored gown has a bit of a relaxed style to it. Big, billowy folds of fabric appear semi-wrinkled and a simple bow sits center. A laidback living room with pops of color and natural, neutral furnishings seems best suited for this look.

Hailee Steinfeld in Ralph & Russo, Academy Awards 2017 / Claire Zinnecker

Hailee Steinfeld stunned in her glowing gown spotted with shiny, pastel flowers as she presented at this year’s Academy Awards. An equally romantic room complete with pastel pinks, rose gold, and a metallic marble wallpaper matches this stunning look.

Gwenyth Paltrow in Tom Ford, Academy Awards 2012 / The Design Chaser

Gwenyth Paltrow’s elegant all-white Oscars look was both modern and classic at the same time, just like an Eames chair. With her structured cape and fitted dress, we can imagine this look translating to a minimal space with Scandinavian style to match the tall blonde’s stature.

Janelle Monae in Elie Saab Couture and Forevermark Diamonds, Academy Awards 2017 / Gray Walker Interiors

Rough meets refined in this bright and ethereal dress worn by Janelle Monae at this year’s award ceremony. The large skirt calls for swooping silhouettes while the metallic details require a certain material edge when it comes to translating this stunning style to a room.

Katherine Heigl in Escada, Academy Awards 2008 / Huffington Post, Steven Gambrel: Time & Place

This column gown worn by Katherine Heigl left us with a serious case of scarlet fever. The only remedy? A room painted in red-hot hues with scattered heights that mimic the silhouette of her one-shouldered dress.

Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton, Academy Awards 2017 / Mimi Design

Michelle Williams went simple and stunning this year with a plunging black neckline and a glittering white skirt. A monochromatic room that’s bright, modern, and has just a hint of shine is the right match for this goddesse’s gleam.

Amy Adams in Proenza Schouler, Academy Awards 2008 / Jonathan Adler

Amy Adams’ hourglass-shaped gown recalls Old Hollywood style in more ways than one. Paired with a tiny gold bag, that small hint of sparkle makes as much of a statement against her ivy-colored dress as gold accents make in luscious, glam space.

Viola Davis in Armani Privé, Academy Awards 2017 / Pierre Yovanovitch

Viola Davis sported one of this season’s hottest hues on the red carpet this year. A chic, salmon red works wonders when worn in a sweeping, relaxed shape. But we also love it with more structured pieces in the home.

Michelle Williams in Vera Wang, Academy Awards 2006 / French Fancy

Michelle Williams’ sunflower yellow gown was met with mixed reviews from style critics. But we think this canary tone is a perfect example of how to wear bright colors both in the home and out in the world.

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture, Academy Awards 2011 / House Beautiful

There was thunderous applause for Mila Kunis’s airy romantic dress choice at the 2011 Oscars ceremony. The lavender lace get-up reminds us that decking your home out in feminine textures and pastel hues is totally acceptable.
