Oscars Red Carpet Review

So that happened (again). The Oscars red carpet was the final stop in a long awards season and it went out with a bang. Ellen killed it (and handed out free pizza), Lupita and Jared made us tear up, Bette brought Beaches back, and the ladies seemed to put as much heart into their ensembles as they did into their movie roles. It was a night full of striking silhouettes, goddess-worthy flowing gowns, bright colors, and daring, other-worldly designs. While it was hard to narrow down, here are our favorite fashion moments from last night that we are sure will stand the test of time: [caption id="attachment_7217" align="alignnone" width="400"]Photo: Robyn Beck / Getty Images.

This Armani Privé stunner took us over the edge with the addition of turquoise drop earrings and classic curls.

This pale, shimmering Versace number with a plunging neckline, elegant silhouette and CAPE was everything we could ever wrap our minds around for a perfect red carpet gown. Oh and that hair and vintage-inspired jewelry...just give us a second okay...Kate, you killed it. [caption id="attachment_7220" align="alignnone" width="399"]Photo: Jim Smeal/REX.

It was expected that she would wow us as usual, but this had to be her best Oscar look to date. We can't stop looking at the intricate details on this dress - from the shape of the bodice to the nude mesh straps and train; Charlize may not have been nominated for an Oscar last night, but we definitely nominate her for best dressed.

We're still tripping over the stunning silhouette paired with minimal make-up and signature backward necklace. This look was a perfect reflection of the classic JLaw we love: true to herself, statuesque and confident. [caption id="attachment_7222" align="alignnone" width="400"]Photo: Jim Smeal / BEImages.

Look closely and the intricate details on this amazing halter dress are endless and breathtaking. [caption id="attachment_7223" align="alignnone" width="399"]Photo: Jim Smeal/REX.

As part of the cutest couple on earth, Olivia is having an amazing year and an even more amazing red carpet moment with this form-fitting black and white gown and peek-a-boo train.

Mendel dress, we're giving props to Anna for keeping it young and fresh AND being a bit daring. Among all the classic, elegant looks we thought this dress was both fun and unexpected.

The one shoulder draping and perfectly fitted silhouette added a Most Elegant award to the couple's growing number of well-deserved honors.

Topped with Neil Lane jewelry and her signature bangs, we were taken back to the classic glamour of the '40's. Okay, as hard as it is to stop here, those are our favorite picks from last night.
