This is officially everyone's favourite Oscars dress of all time

Since the Academy Awards started over 90 years ago, there have been some pretty epic Oscar dresses. There is the most expensive Oscar dress ever worn, the iconic Gwyneth Paltrow Oscar dress and then there's the best Oscar dresses of all time.  

More recently, we had Angelina Jolie's 2012 Atelier Versace dress, with a split so high that it earned her leg its own Twitter account. I also loved Jennifer Lawrence's 2014 bridal Dior gown - even if it did cause her to tumble up the stairs to pick up her award, and don't even get me started on all the borrowing diamonds process. 

All this to say it's hard to pick a favourite, so it's time to call in the resources. The British marketplace OnBuy asked over 3,000 people to pick their favourite celebrity Oscars dress of all time, and they picked... Angelina Jolie's 2004 cream satin Marc Bouwer dress, which was unusual thanks to its halterneck design.

She was closely followed by Kate Hudson and her 2003 blush pink sequin Versace dress, and Keira Knightley's romantic 2015 Valentino gown. See the full list of results below.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
