If you know me, you know I love a good plunging neckline moment. And during the 88th Annual Academy Awards ceremony, it looked like lots of hot celebs had the same passion for this trend. So I've compiled a list of some of my top favorite gowns that dared to bare in all the right places during this Oscar season. Working from left to right with this photo.

1. Soairse Ronan, Calvin Klein Collection 

Let's begin with my top favorite look of the evening. This Brooklyn star and best actress nominee was absolutely flawless in this custom Calvin Klein Collection gown fitting her beautifully. I am not only in love with the low-cut neck, but the emerald color truly stole the show. She sparkled down the red carpet with equally shiny Chopard jewels (love that she chose to miss-match the earrings, one pearl and one emerald). Of all these stunning dresses, this sequined gown is the one I could most see myself wearing. Classy, chic, with a hint of sexy. Say it with me now...GOALS.

2. Margot Robbie, Tom Ford

Next to Soairse's, Margot's dress is one I dream of wearing as well. Gold, sparkly, a dropped neck, and a snakeskin texture...come on now! *sings* "These are a few of my favorite things!" This "Wolf of Wallstreet" actress looked like an Oscar award herself as she dazzled and turned heads on the red carpet. Then again, I would expect nothing less from Tom Ford. Topping it off with a fringe detailed clutch from The Row...Margot was a stunner!

3. Olivia Wilde, Valentino Haute Couture

Holy cleavage! Olivia by far wins most daring dress in my book! Not only are we getting some serious front cleavage, but the actress gives us some side-boob action, too. Wowzers! I will say, she rocked it well, though! The pleated white Valentino gown is gorgeously sexy and risky all at once. I love that she paired it with an on-trend beaded choker and matching clutch to complete the look. I would just want to spin around in this beautiful flowy number all night.

4. Cate Blanchett, Armani Privé

Cate gave us all some mermaid feels as she entered The Oscars with this seafoam green gown adorned with hand-sewn flower detail. I could not stop staring at her Armani dress as she presented during the show. I don't know what I was more impressed with, the floral detail or how perfectly the gown fit this Oscar nom. The color suited her porcelain skin beautifully and she added the right amount of sparkle to her look with some Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Jewelry. Though this dress is a bit too frilly for my taste, she definitely brought some lovely variety to The Oscars fashion.

5. Charlize Theron, Dior Haute Couture

The ever so gorgeous Charlize spices things up in her vibrant red-hot Dior gown. It's no surprise that she went with Dior as she is the face of the J'adore Dior fragrance. What I absolutely adored about her Oscars look was how she thrived with simplicity. She let the dress shine as she complimented it with a long, diamond, Harry Winston statement necklace and earrings (which btw, costs about 3.7 million dollars...no big!). The "Mad Max" star opted out for the classic elegant look as she went with a timeless hairstyle and a smokey eye. Well done, Charlize, well done! *applauds*

Who's plunging dress do you wish you could rock?! Would you dare to bare like these bombshells did? See you soon for a new Wear I Am post! xo.
