But as some stars have shown, sometimes the desire to stand out can backfire spectacularly.
Who could forget Bjork rocking up wearing what looked like a dead swan? Or Cher's flesh-flashing ensemble (complete with a peacock on her head)?
Let's take a trip back down the red carpet of past Oscars as we present to you the worst dressed stars... ever!

Donning a headdress that would put Cleopatra to shame, Cher made her mark on 1986's Academy Awards. Two years later, this fashion pariah would go on to win Best Actress Oscar for her role in "Moonstruck." (Julian Wasser, Liaison / Getty Images)
While her sheep skin coat and crop top-wearing character in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous" won her the nomination, Kate Hudson would not have such fashion luck during the 2001 Oscars. (Getty Images)
Rainbow, no matter who -- even a sunny country star like Faith Hill-- or when (2002) is a mistake. It doesn't matter if the pink, yellow, green and blue brings out your eyes. No.
The 1992 Oscars were full of life lessons: Sometimes you can't have your cake and eat it, too.
Just remember, 1989 was way before "True Blood."
Still basking in the glow of her "Titanic" ballad, Celine Dion was thought to be unstoppable. I guess that made the 1999 Oscars her Waterloo.
Hilary Swank decided to go with pink tulle for the 2003 Academy Awards. The issue here: pink tulle.
This 2004 Christian Lacroix getup was confusing to all -- especially to Uma Thurman who later confessed, "It was a beautiful dress, turns out I wore it wrong."
Jennifer Connelly took home the gold for her "Beautiful Mind" performance in 2002, but unfortunately, her "meditation on beige" ensemble was far from a winner.
In 2002, even fashion fave Gwyneth Paltrow couldn't make this sheer number sing.
Sarah Jessica Parker broke a lot of SATC hearts back in 2010 with this meringue-colored mess. It's OK! You can still want to be Carrie!
In the years since 2001, when Bjork hit the red carpet wearing a swan costume, this outfit has made the remarkable switch from unbelievably bad to just unbelievable. Well done, Bjork!
1990 was a strange time. Don't remember? Perhaps Kim Basinger dressing as the woman from Candyland during the 62nd Academy Awards will jog your memory.
