Best & Worst Dressed

No one knew exactly what to expect this year in terms of Oscar fashions – and while some stars didn't disappoint, gracing the abbreviated red carpet in gorgeous gowns, others made us cringe with their fashion faux pas. Take a peek at the creme de la creme and the bottom of the barrel in our special gallery.

PRETTY WOMAN

Oscar winner Julia Roberts (for 2000's Erin Brockovich) is a tall, cool drink of water at the 2003 Academy Awards. Her halter dress dips low enough to be daring but not too baring, and the gathers accentuate her slim waist. Add to that a delicate gold drop necklace and her signature megawatt smile, and you get a dazzling Oscar-worthy look.
