Best Dressed at the Oscars 2011

Red carpet denizens such as Julianne Moore, Salma Hayek and Meryl Streep were mysteriously missing from the festivities, but there was no shortage of hot fashion on the 2011 Oscars red carpet. Check out our picks for the best Oscar dresses of the year!Mila+Kunis in 83rd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
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.

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.

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?

Hailee+Steinfeld in 83rd Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsHailee 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.

If there's any woman who can truly command a couture gown, it's Cate Blanchett. The Academy Award winner was stunning and extravagant in a structured Givenchy Couture creation pebbled with textured beads. Anyone else might have looked like they were trying too hard, but not Cate.


Mandy+Moore in 83rd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
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.

Natalie+Portman in 83rd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals
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.
