Award presenter Angelina Jolie looked every bit the sexy movie star in a black strapless Atelier Versace gown with a sky-high leg slit. She completed her classic Hollywood look with a pop of red lipstick. Did we expect anything less than total glam from Angie?

Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe with an “orange salmon pink” Louis Vuitton dress she said felt right. The many tiers on the dress reminded us of a decadent cake, and the rhinestone side-hook is very “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.”

George Clooney’s girlfriend Stacy Keibler resembled an Oscar statuette in her gorgeous, gold off-shoulder Marchesa number. We bet George was happy to know he’d be taking home this award after the show.

Bridesmaids’ beauty Rose Byrne was all sultry sparkles in an off-shoulder gown by Vivienne Westwood. Rose has been channeling her inner 70’s vixen at all the red carpet events this season—maybe it’s the bob?

Emma Stone looked like a present in a fuschia Giambattista Valli gown with a gathered bow at the neck. Too bad Nicole Kidman wore almost the exact same dress at last year’s show.

“The Help” actress Jessica Chastain showed up at the Oscars accompanied by her grandmother—how sweet! Her black Alexander McQueen gown with intricate gold detail was more regal than sweet, though—and looked fiercely beautiful set against her redheaded locks.
