The pair did a fantastic job maintaining Carter's off-kilter aesthetic in a surprisingly elegant fashion.

The gown was floor length...  If only we could see if the shoes were mismatched!

Also, what did you think of her fan-shaped clutch handbag?

Halle Berry in Marchesa
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. [High Res Pictures]



Mila Kunis in Elie Saab
It'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. [High Res Pictures]

Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa
Hailee Steinfeld had a true princess moment. The True Grit star's soft pink Marchesa gown was pitch perfect with its jeweled sheer yoke and soft tulle skirt. Steinfeld avoided the major bling, accessorizing her look with a thin, glittering headband and plenty of charm. [High Res Pictures]


Mandy Moore in Monique Lhuillier
Mandy Moore makes a fabulous Disney princess and such a beautiful, stately presence on the red carpet. She looked like a true movie star in a sparkling nude gown by Monique Lhuillier, worn with large, retro diamond earrings. [High Res Pictures]



Amy Adams in L'Wren Scott
There was a new redhead in L'Wren at the Oscars—The Fighter's Amy Adams, whose midnight blue sequined gown looked radiant against her creamy complexion. Bright green jewels, including a necklace worn atop the dress, added an extra dimension to a winning look. [High Res Pictures]


Anne Hathaway in Valentino
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? [High Res Pictures]


Jennifer Hudson in Versace
Bye bye bolero! Jennifer Hudson has come a long way since the year she took home an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, fashion wise. She went for full va-va-voom in a bright red Versace gown that raised plenty of eyebrows with its halter neckline. [High Res Pictures]


Reese Witherspoon in Armani
Reese Witherspoon looked like she'd stepped straight out of the '60s—and it was so cute! Her strapless black and white Armani Privé gown was just right, especially paired with that bouffant 'do and those sparkling emerald earrings. [High Res Pictures]
