Celebrity Unforgettable Oscar Dos It's no secret that celebs often spend weeks searching for just the right gown for the Oscars. But sometimes it's their hairstyle that makes the real fashion statement.

And West's platinum curls -- topped by a wild feather headdress -- displayed her undying sassiness. "She looks like a circus freak, and she's still gorgeous and fabulous," designer Isaac Mizrahi told InStyle in 2001. 02 of 10 DIVA'S 'DO Globe Photos Blaxploitation film Foxy Brown hit screens in 1974 and made the Afro a fashion statement. That same year, Diana Ross -- who played host, along with John Huston, David Niven and Burt Reynolds -- sported one to the Academy Awards, symbolizing the "black is beautiful" era. 03 of 10 BRAIDY BUNCH Steve Granitz/Retna Juliette Lewis got lots of attention for her Oscar-nominated turn as a nubile teen in 1991's remake of Cape Fear – and even more for the jet-black cornrows she wore to the 1992 ceremony. But the hubbub was no surprise to the actress: "I realized how wild it was," she said, PEOPLE noted in 2000. 04 of 10 BACK TO THE FUTURE Gilbert Flores/Celebrity Photo Two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda wowed the crowd in 2000 with her stylish short cut, a 'do reminiscent of the shag she sported in her Oscar-winning role in 1971's Klute. Stylist Sally Hershberger gave Fonda the cut to "look sexy and young, which is how we think of Jane," she told InStyle in 2000. 05 of 10 WHAT A TEASE Fitzroy Barrett/Globe Not many girls "from the block" would wear a bouffant, but that's exactly what trendsetter Jennifer Lopez did at the 2002 Oscars, to mostly bad reviews. "What did you do to her?" critics asked hairstylist Oribe. J.Lo retorted: "Tell them that I loved it and that it was very fashion-forward for me," Oribe told PEOPLE in May. 06 of 10 HIGH & MIGHTY Scott Downie/Celebrity Photo In 1986, Cher ruffled some feathers when she arrived at the Oscars wearing a Bob Mackie outfit that was more flesh than fabric and a goth-meets-Native American headdress. At the ceremony, she joked, "As you can see, I did receive my Academy booklet on how to dress like a serious actress." 07 of 10 ALL GLAMOR Paul Smith/Featureflash/Retna Lucy Liu wasn't known as a fashion plate until the 2000 Oscars, where she arrived in a beaded, one-shoulder Donatella Versace dress and shimmering, seductive hair. With that, Liu "clinched her place among Tinseltown's most fabulously dressed" (and tressed!), Women's Wear Daily noted in July 2000. 08 of 10 GO ON Paul Smith/Featureflash/Retna Celine Dion's long, sleek ponytail and hat was an unfortunate topper for an outfit that didn't win her any fans at the Oscars in 1999. "In a white-bread, dyslexic pimp outfit, Celine became the night's biggest fashion faux pas," Entertainment Weekly noted at the time. 09 of 10 ALL GROWN UP Janet Gough/Celebrity Photo Jodie Foster may have been a tomboy as a youngster, but she was femininity from head to toe at the 1990 Academy Awards, where she presented a screenwriting award with Silence of the Lambs costar Anthony Hopkins. Who was behind the sleek, elegant hairstyle? Foster's fashion mentor, Georgio Armani. 10 of 10 WING AND A PRAYER Nate Cutler/Globe Photos Sally Field has shown she likes to move with the times, having transformed herself from a goofy teen on TV's Gidget to a serious actress (as proven by her Oscar-winning role in 1979's Norma Rae). She also follows some fashion trends, such as the "winged" hairstyle (a la Farrah Fawcett) she sported at the Academy Awards show in 1980.
