As you count down the hours until Ellen DeGeneres’s second stint as Oscar host, enjoy this gem of a photo of Ellen and Anne Heche at the Academy Awards in 1999. Though it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish awards fashions from the '90s and now, this photo is living proof that the decade was also a quaint time before the ubiquity of celebrity stylists — a time when couples would grace the red carpet in matching sunglasses.
