And in 2010, Sandra Bullock accepted her Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side wearing a romantic beaded Marchesa gown that also landed her on the top of best dressed lists.

“It was chosen at the last hour,” the star said of her golden Marchesa gown before attending the Governors Ball. “It was my stepdaughter Chandler’s favorite. If it’s going to be the most special night of your life – aside from your wedding – you just want it to feel right. I loved it, and she just said, ‘That’s my favorite.’”
