The 1960s Oscar looks were all about glamor and big hair! While some actresses wore more traditional dresses, some were beginning to embrace edgier looks, like Liz Taylor below.
Elizabeth Taylor looks intensely glamorous wearing a Dior dress with her Oscar in 1961. The gown is lemon yellow on top, white on bottom, with a dark sash and floral decoration. She won Best Actress for BUtterfield 8. Taylor poses beside Billy Wilder and his 3 (!) Oscars.
Julie Andrews paired a simple white gown with a sparkling necklace in 1965 to receive her award for Mary Poppins.
Audrey Hepburn and Jane Fonda both wearing elegant gowns and accessories at the 1965 Oscars.
Barbra Streisand’s see-through ensemble garnered quite a bit of attention from the press, though it was later reported that she had no idea how transparent the outfit was. We also love Ingrid Bergman’s flowing white and silver dress as well. Check them both out in the clip from the 1969 Oscars below.
