With so many killer actresses dominating the Oscars ballot this year, we’re anticipating some big beauty moments. After all, it's the awards show that closes out the season — might as well go out with a memorable bang, even if it's without a golden statue. Of course, red carpet veterans like Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, and Nicole Kidman will be in attendance, but there's also some relative newcomers, like Ruth Negga and Naomie Harris. Which got us thinking: What did these stars do with their beauty look the first time they arrived for the biggest night in film? Did they have a totally different haircut? Experiment with a bold lip color?

We’ve dug up old photos of all the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees on their first Oscars red carpet — and, no surprise, they all looked amazing back then, too. The only person missing? Actress Isabelle Huppert, a first-timer who is nominated for her role in Elle. Click ahead to take a trip back in time with the A-list crowd.
