70 Red Carpet-Ready Gowns

Celebrate the 2013 Oscar Nominations with These Oscar-Worthy Creations

— January 10, 2013 — Pop Culture
Award season is one of the most exciting times of the year in Hollywood and with the 2013 Oscar nominations released, these red carpet-ready ball downs will have you anxiously awaiting the larger-than-life event. Celebrating its 85th year, the Oscars are synonymous with opulent fashion, fantastic cinematic features and, naturally, the world of celebrities.

The red carpet at the award ceremony is always studied with intense scrutiny from television personalities and fans who critique outfit choices with little mercy. What you'll find within this collection isn't just a number of gowns that are red carpet-ready, but that they are also impervious to the critiques of discerning critics because they exude the elegance most suited with the Oscar ceremony.
