Nearly every dress on the Oscars red carpet is lust-worthy, but the ones that most often make our collective jaws drop — the ones that we want to reach through the screen and touch — are embellished. Whether it's the 6,000 pearls covering Lupita Nyong'o's Calvin Klein dress or the 80,000 hand-painted sequins that were sewn to look like feathers and flowers on Julianne Moore's Chanel confection, the end results are works of art. The ornate bodice on Felicity Jones's Alexander McQueen gown, the studs on Laura Dern's Alberta Ferretti sheath, and the red netting overlay on Behati Prinsloo's Armani Couture dress also had us wanting a closer look. Which is your favourite? Zoom in on the details below, and then vote.
