Since the first Academy Award Show in 1929, Oscar fashion has been documented, dissected and desired. Gorgeous ladies in unattainably beautiful couture gowns will forever have us "normal folk" swooning. With award season kicking off this weekend with the Golden Globes and triumphantly ending on February 24th with the Oscars, women will have their eyes glued to the red carpet to fawn over the fashion. What most people don't immediately realize is that fashion and interior design live hand in hand. Here are some of the most memorable Oscars dresses from the past paired with beautiful interiors inspired by them.
Audrey Hepburn's gown is beautifully mirrored in this cast iron wallpaper by mineheart.
A bold punch of red seen on Kate Winslet and in this stunning living room.
Beautifully peachy, feminine lines on Penelope Cruz are mirrored in the window treatment and wallpaper in this master bathroom.
Gold, bold and fabulous. These sequins pop, whether on Cameron Diaz or covering the wall at Erica Tanov's Marin Country Mart.
Both Julia Roberts and this stylish living room are classic and chic in a graphic black and white palette.
Michelle Williams was a showstopper in this gown, as is this vacation home bar vignette.
Halle Berry wasn't afraid to be daring, and it paid off. This beautiful entry way is as daringly eclectic as it comes.
I can't wait to see the Oscar fashion in 2013. What colors and styles are you hoping to see on the red carpet this year?
