The best dressed Oscar winning ladies of the Millennium know a lot about winning. Their gold statues and (more importantly) their gorgeous dresses prove just that! 

Celebrities' fashion choices are already big business, but Oscar fashion takes our obsession with what stars wear to a whole new level. The Academy Awards red carpet is an unparalleled runway for some of the best (and worst) celebrity fashion. Maybe it's the lights, or the golden glow of Oscar himself... but no where else do our favorite actresses shine brighter. 

When it comes to best dressed Oscar winners, Sandra Bullock, Helen Mirren, and Penelope Cruz always look stunning. And it makes sense that Oscar winners like Lupita Nyong'o (can we say blue Prada?) and Charlize Theron (gold Gucci to match Oscar) always make the lists of best dressed actresses at the Oscars. Check out this list of best dressed Oscar winning ladies of the millennium. Upvote the dress that wins them all!
