The Academy Awards turns films and movie stars into enduring icons.

But the film industry's star turn is just as famous for its fashion moments. There was Julia Roberts in Valentino, Marion Cotillard in Dior Haute Couture, and, most recently, Sandra Bullock in Marchesa.

WSJ's Elva Ramirez spoke to celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch, who named his favorite Oscar dresses of all time and discussed what elevates a dress into fashion history.
