For actors, stylists and designers, the lead-up to the red carpet for any major awards show involves weeks of preparation, fittings and debate over which brands will be aligned with which stars. In terms of visibility, getting worn by a major celebrity can work wonders for smaller designers, but the truth is that the red carpet is still most often lined with a selection of more established fashion houses.

Each year, we tally the most frequently worn designers during awards season, and for 2017's annual red carpet score card, those that come out on top may be of little surprise. We looked closely at red carpets for the Golden Globes, SAGs, BAFTAs (a new addition this year) and, of course, the Oscars. In determining the leaders of the pack, we're tracking quantity, yes, but it's also important to account for quality. If that garment ends up on stage, whether through a presenter or (more importantly!) a winner, the designer can consider it a home run. Interested to see who made the cut? Keep scrolling.
