The year may be coming to a close, but before we start planning our Oscar viewing parties, we're revisiting all the gorgeous and glamorous high-fashion gowns that made their way down the awards show red carpets this year.
We saw fringe, we saw intricate embroidery, we saw sequins and we saw a whole lot of skin. From the Met Gala to Cannes, the Grammys to the Academy Awards, everyone from our favorite models, singers and actors put their best sartorial foot forward and set the stage for a very stylish season.

Susan Kelechi Watson shined in a tiered Christian Siriano gown for the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Kendall Jenner attended the amfAR Cannes Gala 2019 at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Giambattista Valli. Only Jenner could pull that look off!
Priyanka Chopra opted for a white Georges Hobeika ball gown at the Cannes Film Festival, which she paired with an intricate diamond choker.
Eva Longoria showed off major skin in a rose gold Alberta Ferretti creation on the Cannes red carpet.
Lucy Liu wore a striking purple Christian Siriano gown to attend the Tony Awards, where she was a presenter.

J.Lo made our list again at the Vanity Fair Oscar After-Party in a glittery strapless Zuhair Murad gown.
Serena Williams landed on our best-dressed list at the 2019 Met Gala for her Atelier Versace gown covered in pink butterflies -- little did we know that she paired the red carpet dress with a pair of Off-White Nike sneakers like the icon she is.
Kim Kardashian West showed off her tiny waist in a Mugler dress that took eight months to make. The look, however iconic, was not without its challenges and left indentations on her back and stomach.
"I have never felt pain like that in my life," she said about the look.
Lupita Nyong'o heated up the Golden Globes red carpet in a cobalt blue gown by Calvin Klein.
