I hope you enjoyed this post of the first 30 Academy Award Best-Actress winners and their dresses. Please not that I was not able to find the designer who designed most of the dresses, as a lot of the information on some of the gowns is unknown. Regardless, I hoped you enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading!
