    Jennifer Lawrence delivered one of her strongest red carpet showings of awards season in this Dior gown. As the new face of the brand's Miss Dior handbag line, we knew she'd be clad in the label, and we weren't disappointed by her choice, though many thought it was a tad bridal.

    Charlize Theron showed off her cropped 'do and outrageously toned body in Dior Couture. An expected choice given her relationship with the brand, but she knocked it out of the park.

    Despite initial reports that she would be wearing Valentino (one of her favorite designers), Anne Hathaway wore a pale pink satin Prada dress that failed to make a statement. However, her Tiffany & Co. jewels were stellar.

    Halle Berry may not have broken ground in this Versace dress, but she looked sexy and "Bond girl chic," which she told designer Donatella Versace she was going for.

    Helen Hunt looked chic in a dress by—wait for it!—custom H&M. Her ensemble wasn't all affordable though, she accessorized it with $750,000 of diamonds.

    We predicted that Jennifer Aniston would wear red Valentino, and she obviously did. There was nothing groundbreaking here, but she looked like a seasoned A-lister on the red carpet.

    For her second straight Oscars appearance as George Clooney's trophy girlfriend, Stacy Keibler wore a metallic Naeem Khan dress. Her style game is definitely improving thanks to her stylist Brad Goreski

    After her stunning turn at the Grammys, Kelly Rowland hit the red carpet in a black and white Donna Karan Atelier dress that paid homage to Angelina Jolie's trendsetting leg slit at last year's awards.

    Amy Adams made a completely predictable choice with this ruffled Oscar de la Renta frock that was neither here nor there.

    While we weren't completely crazy about Giuliana Rancic's Raphael Cennamo gown, it was relatively subdued for the "Fashion Police" host, who looked much better thanks to her lack of hair extensions.

    "Fashion Police" host Kelly Osbourne chose an unflattering black Tony Ward Couture dress that left us questioning why we should listen to her opinions on the red carpet.

    "Les Miserables" star Samantha Barks showed a bit of skin on the red carpet that seemed more appropriate for the Golden Globes, but she still killed it in black Valentino.

    Reese Witherspoon opted for a Louis Vuitton gown which she said her 13-year-old daughter Ava helped her pick out. While it wasn't exactly a major risk, the blue and black combo is completely on trend and it looked elegant with her side-swept curls and simple makeup.

After an awards season full of serious sartorial hits and major misses on the red carpet, the hotly anticipated Oscars were tonight. Naturally, they brought out all of Hollywood’s big names from nominees like Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway to previous Oscar winners like Halle Berry and Charlize Theron.

While we were impressed with some of starlets’ gown choices for the big night, we can’t help but feel that some of our favorite A-listers definitely could have stepped it up—from Jennifer Lawrence’s haute couture Dior gown to Naomi Watts’ glittery Armani Prive dress.

Check out all the looks for yourself in the gallery above, and let us know who looked the best (and worst!) on Hollywood’s biggest night.
