#OscarsThrowback: Revisit The A-List’s First Ever Oscars Appearances

Want to see what all your favourite stars looked like back at their first EVER Oscars show? Well right this way then...

Awards season is upon us so it’s only right that we celebrate the Oscars glory by revisiting some vintage snaps from yester-year. We’ve collated all the stars’ first ever appearances on the Academy’s storied red carpet, and boy are there some some corkers…

There’s baby-faced Leo in his tux looking about 12 in 1994 (two years before he looked set to make it big after starring in Romeo + Juliet) and Tom and Nicole looking very vintage back in the day. Oh, and we’ve also got some questionable outfit choices from the late ’90s and early noughties sported by A-list actresses, who are today renowned for their sartorial choices but obviously needed a little time to find their style (we forgive you Hilary Swank and Penelope Cruz, it happened to us too).

However, there’s also a whole heap of stars who’ve just kept getting it right since they first stepped out into the limelight all those years ago – Keira Knightley, for example, absolutely killed it back in 2006 in an a-symmetrical Vera Wang dress. And when she made her red carpet Oscars return last year, she looked incredible once again. Hats off also to the timeless style of Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez and Sharon Stone too, showing us that sometimes glamour is just in your DNA.

First up we have this vintage snap of Cate from the 1999 celebration, which is quite obviously, everything. That same year she’d just starred along Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley and was starting to get noticed in Hollywood for her acting skills, although we totally rate this detailed, slinky dress too…
