Best Dressed at the 2011 Oscars
Who looked her best while thanking the Academy? And who was the big winner on the red carpet? We've got the scoop on the best looks of the 2011 Academy Awards—see who won big with fashion fans!
Natalie Portman in Rodarte
Natalie Portman had the year's most buzzworthy performance in Black Swan, and had fashion followers on the edge of their seats over her choice of Oscars attire. This violet off-the-shoulder Rodarte gown was a lovely choice, even if it was not nearly as dramatic as most of her fans would have liked.
Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang
Sandra Bullock pulled back her blunt bangs into a stately updo, giving her strapless red Vera Wang gown an elegant complement. A pair of diamond bracelets, diamond studs and regal red lips made this a classic Oscars look.
Mila Kunis in Elie SaabIt's too bad Mila Kunis looked so bored on the red carpet, because her soft lavender Elie Saab gown was actually quite pretty. The plunging neckline must have turned plenty of heads, as did the semi-sheer skirt. Delicate diamond earrings, a diamond bangle and a soft updo completed her look.
Michelle Williams in Chanel
Michelle Williams' understated Chanel gown was just what we'd expected from the Blue Valentine star, who tends to favor feminine frocks with a delicate touch. Impeccable makeup and eye-catching diamond earrings added the Hollywood touch to Michelle's look.
Celine Dion's Armani Privé gown was made for her, and it shows. The structured gown's understated elegance was perfectly matched with a deep green jeweled necklace.
There was nothing wrong with Anne Hathaway's vintage Valentino gown, but it was perhaps a bit conservative for the evening's hostess...even when paired with a deep red lip and a sparkling diamond necklace. Was she saving her best look for the telecast?
Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein
Gwyneth Paltrow added a bit of sass to her minimalist sequined Calvin Klein Collection gown with Louis Vuitton earrings and a belt brooch. This is red carpet styling at its best.
Nicole Kidman in Dior Couture
Like Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman belongs to that selective crew of women who can wear pretty much whatever they want—so they should wear couture. Nicole chose this embroidered white Christian Dior Couture gown, accented with a vintage Fred Leighton necklace with over 150 carats of diamonds.
Hilary Swank in Gucci
HIlary Swank had her goddess moment in a sequined and feathered strapless Gucci Premiere gown accented with ostrich feathers. It's too bad she's not nominated this year—this dress deserves more time to shine.
Halle Berry knew she had a red carpet hit in this glittering tulle masterpiece by Marchesa! The one-time Best Actress winner went soft for the evening, matching her gown with ultra-feminine diamond earrings.
