Fashion has changed throughout the decades, but not only have the gowns changed, but so have the jewelry, hairstyles, and makeup. There is most definitely no better event to see the passing trends then at the Academy Awards.

1960's

Grace Kelly poses with her award at the 1955 Oscars. She won best-actress for her role in "The Country Girl." She is truly timeless in her elbow length gloves and satin dress.
Elizabeth Taylor won an Oscar for her role in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" in 1967. Note her emerald and diamond necklace and earrings made by Bulgari.
