Cameron Diaz, 2010
Actress Cameron Diaz had quite the fairy tale moment at the 2010 Academy Awards. The blond beauty deviated from her usual California-cool style in a show-stopping gown by Oscar de la Renta. Everything about the gown, from the sparkling embellishments to the soft sweetheart neckline, worked perfectly with Cameron's breezy personality.

The champagne tulle dress came from Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2010 show, and had quite the couture price tag. According to The Richest, the gown cost $62,500. That makes you wonder just how many hours it took to create the delicately gold-embroidered dress. 

Diaz got a lot of rave reviews for her fairy-tale-like dress, with the fashion editors of People charging the way. "The phrases 'breath-taking' and 'jaw-dropping' are severely overused in my opinion, but both apply to Cameron’s dazzling strapless Oscar de la Renta gown. The champagne hue, the scattered paillettes and the vintage-inspired vibe made the dress such a showstopper," wrote Zoë Ruderman, PeopleSenior Style Editor.

"It was Rachel Zoe, the actress’s stylist at the time, who spotted this number on the Fall 2010 runway, and I think the confection on Cameron is the most amazing thing Rachel has ever conceived."
