I must confess that watching the Academy Awards sometimes feels like punishment. It’s wayyyyy too long. I watch it now to see who showed up and what they wear. The Oscars are meant to be an elegant ceremony, but celebrities just can’t resist the opportunity to bare some skin. The Gloss has listed the 15 most revealing dresses in Oscars history. Among the more memorable are Angelina Jolie’s leg-baring Versace gown in 2012, Heidi Klum’s inappropriately cleavage-baring number last year, the Versace gown with a sheer bodice that Halle Berry wore in 2002 for her big win, and, of course, Cher’s wild Bob Mackie outfit from 1986, featuring a crop top and a two-foot tall headpiece. Brandi Glanville’s also on the list for the overly tight dress she wore to last year’s Oscars, but we’re less puzzled by her outfit and more by the fact that she even got invited.
