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.

MISS SCARLET

Glamor is clearly the order of the day for Best Actress nominee Renée Zellweger (for Chicago), who looks ravishing in this red gown. The sparkling, cutout lace top complements both her alabaster skin and slender figure, while the skirt pours gracefully down onto the red carpet. She tops it all off with simple blonde locks and perfect ruby lips.
