People's Choice Awards have been around for a few years since it first began in 1975, and the awards show has managed to bring along some serious fashion-forward moments through the years. The first season of the show featured Talia Shire in a collared dress with an elegant trench coat that defines what it means to be classy. The lady kept her makeup and jewelry to a minimum. 

Barbra Streisand knew how to make an impression, and the androgynous satin gown that she wore to the 1977 People's Choice Awards stand proof to that statement. The actress won the honor of Favorite Motion Picture Actress on that eventful night and again bagged the same title the next year.

Asymmetric gowns require a specific elegant touch to come off as phenomenal, and Mary Ann Mobley certainly did not lack the talent when she wore one of a king scarlet, asymmetrical gown to the 1980's award show. The look was paired off with red nail paint, a red lip to match, an equally dazzling red back, and a red flower in her hair. 

Women need not always be in dresses when attending formal events, and Charlene Tilton stood guard to this fact when she chose to let go of gowns and wear a tuxedo to the 7th annual show of the People's Choice Awards. She paired the tuxedo with a white tailcoat and a hat to complement it. She did not leave it there but also added a bowtie to match along with burgundy nails. 

People's Choice Awards has some serious daring outfit moments, but nothing could compare to the sequin gown that Lisa Hartman wore in the 1985 awards event. The gown featured very sheer fabric, and a daring panel cut out, leading to a future of cutout dresses to emerge in fashion moments. 

Talking about daring, Dolly Parton has never been outdone by anyone when it comes to outstanding. The lady dressed in an assortment of pearls, crystals, a lot of silver, and a sheer panel even back in the 1988s. Her fashion sense has always been phenomenal and daring to extreme limits, and she looked seriously extra in the gown as she ascended the stage to accept her Favorite All-Around Female Entertainer award.

Lingerie need not be reserved only for bedrooms, and Sandra Bullock looked very exceptional as she attended the 22nd annual People's Choice Awards in a lace slip dress. Channeling the 90s energy, her look was paired off with a classy updo and a diamond hoop necklace. 

Sequins have been the epitome of fashion for quite a while now, but no one wore it better than Michael Michele in a Chevron dress. The floor-length gown came with a strapless design that the designer and soap opera star paired with a red lip and little dazzle in terms of makeup. Needless to say, her sequins were dazzling enough for the 2001's award night!

Award shows are the perfect time to make political statements, right? Well, Reba McEntire channeled the power of stunning sequins as she wore the American flag formed into a gown. She paired the already sparkling gown with an equally shining star chain belt during the 2002 event.

Jennifer Aniston's fashion was all the rage back in the 2000s, and she definitely did not disappoint when she arrived at the red carpet event in a daringly low-opened blazer and accompanied with a walking cane on the 2003 show. The actress had actually injured her foot but did not scare away from putting her best foot forward as she donned on a drop neck diamond choker and a walking foot due to her injury. 

Leather has always been the signature material for Oprah, and she did justice to her cropped leather top that looked stunning paired with golden buttons. She won the award for Favorite Talk Show Host that year in 2004 and rocked her glam pencil dress with gold earrings to match.

Pauley Perrette amazed the audience in a satin asymmetrical gown at the 2011 People's Choice Award show, where her gown featured detailing to bring awareness to NoH8. NoH8 is a charitable organization working for gender and marriage equality. The Terre King designer gown soon became a sensation as people flocked to auction for signed copies of pictures of Perrette wearing the gown. The proceeds were donated to the charity. 

Britney Spears surely went through a hell of a time in the past decade but killed it when it came to fashion. The singer looked gorgeous in a nude bodycon dress at the 2014 awards event that debuted a sheer panel overlay on the dress and was detailed with crystal roses. 

Remember when Jennifer Lopez created history for wearing a sheer green fabric in the form of a gown which later gave rise to the invention of Google images? Well, the star once again channeled her captivating sheer outfits loving inner goddess when she walked the red carpet of the 2017 awards event in a sheer black Ree, Acra mermaid gown debuting a crystal breastplate and ruffled shoulders. She won the Best Crime Drama TV Actress award that year and was stunned as she grabbed the awards with her diamond ring-decked hands. 

Remember when Christina Aguilera wore a yellow and black outfit if you can barely call it one, during her "Dirrty" era? The star brought the heat back on stage this year in 2021 with a renovated version of the iconic dress. She once again performed at the event in the rendition outfit and won the Icon award.

Accepting her award, she said, “What an exceptional honor. To be standing here receiving an award with the word ‘icon’ is truly surreal.” She added, “Believing in yourself is often the biggest obstacle of all, and throughout the years, I’ve heard your stories about the impact of songs like ‘Beautiful,’ ‘Fighter,’ ‘Can’t Hold Us Down,’ and, yes, even ‘Dirrty,’” and added, “Thank you for your stories. Thank you for listening. And thank you for fighting. You inspire me every day.
