Oscar Dresses Infographic by Paul North, Chloe Williamson
We created a graphic that details the dresses worn by every actress who has won (and accepted) the Best Actress Academy Award since 1929. Using photographic sources, we researched and illustrated all 70 dresses worn up to 2014's ceremony. For older, black and white photographs we found additional written sources that described the colours of the dresses. Written sources and visitor comments also helped us find the names of the designers for most of the dresses as well. We chose an illustration style that recalls fashion designer sketches and combined this with fonts and layout choices that echo a classical Hollywood period.
