Oscars Dresses That Could Be Worth Millions

The Academy Awards is Tinseltown's biggest night of the year, and it's about much more than the movies.

Almost as many people tune in to the red carpet shows as the ceremony itself, and an A-lister wearing a certain designer can be worth millions more than a huge advertising campaign.

The top designers such as Dior, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, Chloe and Valentino battle it out to dress the big names.

If an actress chooses an unknown designer, this event can launch their career, as happened last year when Zoe Saldana wore Alexis Mabel.

All eyes this time around will be on nominees Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Sally Hawkins, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyongo and Meryl Streep.

The stars' main concern now is keeping their hair from frizzing amid the worst rain Southern California has seen in 100 years.
