Awards season is still in full swing, dudes, and this weekend is (perhaps!) the most highly-anticipated show of all: the Oscars. Yep, this Sunday all your faves will be walking down the red carpet, and to celebrate, we decided to look back and see what the stars were wearing 20 years ago. I mean, who isn't down for some good ol' '90s fashion inspiration, amirite? Check out some of the most memorable red carpet looks below.
Winona Ryder (and then-boyfriend David Pirner of Soul Asylum) went for a timeless all-black look at the 1995 Oscars. She sported short curls with her sparkly, spaghetti-strap dress and honestly, we could totally still see someone sporting this ensemble today. Get ittt.
OMG, bb Anna Paquin! Before she made Sookie Stackhouse a household name, she was killin' it on the red carpet in patchwork dresses like this one. Extra points for matching the gloves and heels exactly, girl.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Save for SJP's super '90s beauty game (which, honestly, we're totally into now), she could've stepped out of any of the last few decades in this classic black number.
Elizabeth Hurley dominated the fashion world in the mid-'90s (the now-infamous safety pin Versace dress made its debut only a year prior), so it's no surprise she brought her red carpet A game to the Oscars. Everything about this sculpted white gown is perfection. *kisses fingertips*
One of our favorite '90s babies, Mara Wilson, kept it cute in a layered white lace gown and tights. Also, this was right before she performed a live number during the show–no pressure!
Um, is there anything more awesome than this photo of Oprah straight-up owning the red carpet in plunging brown gown? Yeah, we didn't think so.
It looks like streamlined, no-nonsense dresses were a hit in 1995, as seen here on Claudia Schiffer. TBH, though, we can't get over her incredibly timeless beauty look. (NEED. THOSE. WAVES.)
Uma Thurman (seen here with her dad) also went for a sleek, all-white gown complete with a dark burgundy lip and matching accessories. WERK.
This was definitely the era of anti-poofy gowns, as Jodie Foster proves in her sleek dress covered in crystals.
You probably don't know Australian costume designer Lizzy Gardiner by name, but her dress made out of 254 real American Express Gold cards was so iconic that it even has its own Wikipedia page. Also worth noting: she won an Oscar for Best Costume Design the same night.
