The People's Choice Awards has recognized stars and their work since 1975. What's also recognized? The fashion. From full-blown sequined gowns to lingerie-like midi dresses, ahead, the most iconic look from every year at the People's Choice Awards.
This is the first year of the People’s Choice Awards, and Talia Shire and her husband David Shire are among the first attendees of the awards. While David is dressed in a tuxedo, Talia dons a more relaxed, everyday dress and coat. The dress code has certainly changed over the years.
Mary Tyler Moore steps out in a high-neck, polka dot dress for the 2nd annual awards show. She won “Favorite All Around Female Entertainer,” alongside Carol Burnett.
Marlo Thomas attends the 1977 People’s Choice Awards show in a dress with a plunging neckline. This style seems to be way before Thomas’s time, as it’s seen all over the red carpet now.
Suzanne Somers attended the still-fairly-new awards show wearing a stunningly classic low-cut, silk gown. She finished the look with a silk cape the same color as the dress.
Those pearls! Those gloves! Pam Dawber holds her award for “Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Program.”
Natalie Wood wore a dress with a mesh see-through top—a bit of an outlandish look at the time.
Charlene Tilton took a different approach to her look in 1980 in an all-white tuxedo, complete with cummberbund and top hat.
Barbara Babcock adds flare to a simple black dress with a red fur boa and a patterned, fitted jacket.
Linda Evans in a beautiful sparkling gown with a plunging neckline and front slit.
Victoria Principal wore a mermaid-like silver dress with a one-shoulder accent in 1984.
Paul Stanley from KISS and his date Lisa Hartman attended the 10th annual People's Choice Awards. Hartman wore a more risqué open-front, halter top dress...scandalous.
Cybill Shepherd arrived to the 1986 awards decked out in a gold pleated dress with a large fur coat.
Actress Deidre Hall wore a black off-the shoulder gown with a black feather wrap.
Dolly Parton arrived in a mix of pearls, sequins, and fur, proving a fashion statement could be just as big as her hair.
Robin Givens wore a mermaid-blue, body-con gown to the 1989 People's Choice Awards—and looked absolutely stunning.

Debra Messing wore a gorgeous low-back, black gown.
Jennifer Love Hewitt opted for a cerulean strapless gown, and completed her look with crimped hair, because it was 2000.

Reba McEntire salutes the camera, wearing an America-themed gown to the 2002 awards show, which premiered a few months after the 9/11 attacks.
Jennifer Aniston wore a simple black shirt paired with black pants to the 2003 awards show. Another accessory she probably wasn't expecting to bring: a cane. The Friends star broke a toe and leaned on the cane for support during the awards show. (But she still looked pretty fabulous.)
Kaley Cuoco's entire ensemble—from her spiked hair bun to her ruffled, spaghetti strap pink dress—is a perfect example of the early aughts fashion.
