26. Emma Stone, 2017
The young actress was already nominated for the desired award five times, and in 2017 she marked her first win the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture for her performance in the acclaimed musical La La Land. Every time she steps on the red carpet, the actress immediately steals the show, but in 2017 she truly outdid herself, almost as if she knew this was the year she would finally win and step on the stage, after two nominations.
The dress she chose for the big night, which ended up being even bigger than she’d expected, was a Valentino gown, and her starry look was created by stylist Petra Flannery, who matched the metallic stars of her dress with silver Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Silver sparkles and a deep neckline is pretty much the actress’ usual red carpet look, giving it a different version and a different twist every year. This year’s award wasn’t much different, and the actress donned a Louis Vuitton gown, featuring twisted glass tubes to achieve the silvery, sparkling look.
