Our Pick: The Best Dressed Couples At The Oscar Over The Years

The 2021 Oscars happened. There were winners all around, both for acting and style. Unlike other Oscars, attendance was low due to the current pandemic. Only the nominees and a few guests were present.

The glamor of the night is the stuff for Hollywood watchers and fashion enthusiasts over the years. However, it’s not only who wins the coveted prize that captures headlines but also who the stars show up with.
