This is IT, folks — the grand finale of award show season. We kicked things off strong back in January with the Golden Globes, got a little funky at the Grammys (Madonna, we’re looking at you) and now we’re headed straight into the heart of red carpet fashion at the 2015 Academy Awards. We can’t wait to see who walks away with a little gold man, but first things first: the dresses. From elegant ombré to a chainmail-esque gowns, here are our favorite looks from the star-studded evening.
