There may actually be a science behind what it takes to land on the Best Dressed list at the Oscars.
With the 89th Annual Academy Awards on the horizon, OnlineCasino.ca decided to take a look at the history of the Oscars' best dressed stars to determine which looks faired best with fashion critics -- and the numbers are pretty amazing.
According to the site's analysis, which took into consideration the Best Dressed lists from the past 20 years, there are clear trends in which ensembles are favored. Among them? White, metallic and black dresses, which have been worn by over 40 percent of the best dressed women at the Academy Awards over the past 20 years.
The most favored designer was far and away Versace, with almost 9 percent of best dressed women wearing the designer's looks since 1996.

Though there are definite trends when it comes to which outfits enable stars to look their best on the Oscars red carpet, there is one star who seems to defy those trends: Jennifer Hudson. The 2007 Academy Award winner wore a brown Oscar de la Renta gown when she won Best Supporting Actress in 2007 and an orange Versace dress in 2011. Both looks won Hudson major praise, despite the fact that orange and brown are the colors least likely to garner a woman praise at the Oscars.
