However, nothing brings a couture gown to life like when it is worn on the red carpet.
Here are some of the most memorable red carpet moments of 2019.
Lady Gaga channeled Judy Garland when she wore a blue Valentino gown at the Golden Globes.
Emily Blunt wowed us in a shimmering pink custom gown by Michael Kors as she was nominated for two gongs for her roles in Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Cardi B proved she could bring any fashion creation to life when she wore a pearl inspired costume by Thierry Mugler at the Grammy Awards.
Katy Perry was ‘lit’ at the Met Gala and looked like she came straight out of a Disney set with her crystal chandelier inspired outfit. Moschino designer Jeremy Scott created the dress.
Lastly, Zendaya looked enchanting and had us in awe with her Cinderella-inspired Tommy Hilfiger dress at the Met Gala.
