The Academy Awards is one of the most glamorous events of the year for Hollywood’s elite. But for supermodels, the star-studded spectacle is an excuse to get glam and don super-sexy ensembles to the many afterparties. Below, we’ve rounded up the most sizzling looks from Miranda Kerr, Kate Upton, Alessandra Ambrosio and more models — and then divided them into two teams: ultra-plunging and super-sheer.
Kerr is red hot in a low-cut custom red-orange KaufmanFranco design with large cutout detailing for the evening. She teamed the high-slit number with gold accessories — a metallic Atelier Swarovski clutch and strappy Christian Louboutin sandals — and her brand-new bob!
Meanwhile, Upton opted for a deep V-neck Victoria Beckham dress, a black-and-gold metallic Jimmy Choo clutch and dazzling drop diamond earrings; and Chanel Iman really took the plunge in a metallic black-and-gold dress with a subtle sheer tulle skirt, which she paired with drop earrings and a sultry smoky eye.
And rounding out the bodice-baring team? Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover star Ashley Graham, in a form-fitting bright red custom dress from Bao Tranchi with a high-slit and a large diamond cutout over her chest, which exposed a bustier-style bra. The model paired the statement design with strappy sandals and hoop earrings.

Now for our sheer team! Ambrosio set the tone with a high-neck, form-fitting black velvet dress with sheer cutouts and a thick gold choker. Se cinched the design with a wide black-and-gold belt and kept her beauty look low-key with a soft smoky eye, nude lip and a simple center-parted do.
Emily Ratajkowski wowed in a strapless Steven Khalil gown with a sheer floral embroidered skirt, which she accessorized with Brian Atwood heels, a Tyler Alexandra clutch and a dazzling Neil Lane choker. But the biggest show-stopping look of the night? Natasha Poly’s sleeveless Roberto Cavalli gown, featuring crystal and pearl embroidery, covering all of the right places. She teamed the nearly-naked number with a sleek center-parted hairstyle and a dark-hued mani.
And lastly, Petra Nemcova opted for an off-the-shoulder, black tulle Georges Chakra Couture gown with a ruffled skirt and striped embroidered bodice, which she paired with a satin Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and an equally bold red lip.
