oscar dresses

The  London agency Mediarun Digital created a wonderful illustration of every Oscar dress worn by the Best Actress Academy Award winner starting in 1929. 

I think its so interesting that Katharine Hepburn chose not to attend any of the awards.  I imagine her in a great pantsuit anyways.
