The 88th annual Academy Awards are just a few days away, but before we get swept up in Sunday's ceremony, we're looking back at the ultra-glamorous past of Hollywood's big night.
Before stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt became mainstays at the Oscars, the award show saw silver screen legends like Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly walk its red carpet in gorgeous gowns and sharp tuxes.
Just check out the photos below (curated by Getty Images) for a little glimpse at the glamour of Oscars' past, and get ready for this year's ceremony, which airs on Sunday, Feb. 28, at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC. Red carpet coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET.
