Every year the awards season brings a bumper crop of head-turning red carpet getups, but we can't help but reflect on those standout looks from years—decades—past. Oscars, Grammys, and Golden Globes might be the coveted prizes over the coming weeks, but let's not discount the ability to stand out in a sea of fellow celebs in couture, all coiffed to perfection. It's impressive! What's even more impressive is if a look can resonate in people's minds for years to come. 

There are more than a handful of iconic beauty moments that have managed to stick with us, and we thought it only fitting to pay tribute to them here. From Cher to Madonna, Audrey Hepburn to Zendaya, see our nominees for the most memorable red carpet beauty looks of all time below.
