For the movie junkies, the Oscars is the treasure trove for amazing movies worth missing a Friday night out for. But for the fashion and beauty girls all over the globe, the Academy Awards is the best event to spot the dreamiest frocks and beauty looks, too!  If you're turning eighteen real soon or attending a debut, you're in luck because we're rounding up six of the dreamiest debut dress ideas you can and totally should steal from the 2017 Oscars!

Emma Roberts

Thanks to Scream Queens, we're so used to seeing Emma Roberts rocking a pale blonde tresses, so when she rocked a fiery red 'do on top of her dazzling black and white dress, Emma easily stood out—in a totally good way—on the red carpet. Take your cue from the original Chanel and opt for a black and white number for your big day, too.


Hailee Steinfeld

Skip the usual sweetheart cut for your debut and opt for a classic, no-fail halter dress like Hailee's dreamy Oscars gown. Pull back your hair and don’t be afraid to let your dress take center stage.

Sofia Carson

This might be Sofia Carson's first ever Academy Awards, but she absolutely slayed the red carpet with this beautiful Monique Lhuillier frock. If you're going for a full-on princess moment, then dress is perfect for you!

Felicity Jones

When it comes to debuts and red carpets, girls usually go all out with their dresses, but Felicity Jones took the road less travelled by and went the simpler route with a basic Christian Dior dress. Take your style cue from Felicity and opt for a simple dress that’s still nothing short of breathtaking.

Emma Stone


Still taking cues from her hit movie La La Land, Emma walked the red carpet in a vintage-esque, beaded dress and looked absolutely gorgeous, too! Add an instant dose of roaring twenties to your debut and opt for a Great Gatsby-inspired dress and get your flapper on!

Dakota Johnson

For a sleek and classic debut look, take notes from Dakota Johnsons' Gucci frock and opt for a long-sleeved dress and keep your accessories bare minimum.
