9 Super Sexy Plunging Gowns From the Oscars

The 2016 Oscars took place last night, and we think the red carpet was kind of the best part (but not as great as Leo's win, of course). We saw a lot of dresses with plunging necklines and backs this year. We don't know about you, but we loved this daring trend. Here are our favorites, in no particular order:

1. Cate Blanchett


We love the balance of fragile flowers with this risky plunge!

2. Saoirse Ronan


Nominated for her role as a sheltered, shy young woman in Brooklyn, Saoirse showed that she does not share those characteristics with her character when she donned this stunning and eye-catching gown! 

3. Charlize Theron


Who knew a deep-cut neckline could elevate a simple red dress to this magnitude?

4. Rachel McAdams


Rachel, whose film Spotlight won Best Picture, mixed things up with a high neckline and open back. Needless to say, she looked oh-so-sophisticated.

5. Julianne Moore


While Julianne—who had the honor of presenting Leo with his first Oscar—didn't have the most adventurous neckline on the carpet, this plunge still made a gorgeous addition to her dark gown.

6. Margot Robbie


Margot sparkled for all to see in this solid gold gown!

7. Olivia Wilde


Not only did Olivia's dress have an interesting square neckline, but it also had an open back. That paired with the neutral color worked so well together!

8. Jennifer Lawrence


J. Law rocked this nude and black gown, with its fairly deep neckline.

9. Kerry Washington


Okay, we're not sure if this really counts since Kerry wore this to the after party. But, regardless, it is a beautiful open-back gown that we wish we had the guts to wear!
