Wow. It's so long ago since the model wore this plunging Versace number to the Oscars that Richard Gere was only her boyfriend at the time - she hadn't gotten around to marrying him and divorcing him yet. It might date back to 1991 but it's clearly memorable as in recent years it has rated very highly in polls of the most iconic pieces of clothing ever.

2005 was a different time for Gisele - before the babies and Tom Brady, she was Leonardo DiCaprio's other half. Clearly, she's always been a style icon. This hippie-style Christian Dior dress makes it a big winner in our books.
