Oscars 2012: Our 10 Favorite Looks and How to Get Them
Last night's Academy Awards saw a handful of our favorite stars branching out with more daring looks (capes! orange ruffles!), while others kept it classic. And interestingly, both the risk takers and the traditionalists wound up on our best-dressed countdown, proving that when it comes to the red carpet, it truly is all about the mix.
See who we thought stood out in the slideshow—and then shop our likeminded fashion finds.
Gwyneth, can you do no wrong?! The gorgeous Goop-ette wore what we felt was the best look at last night's show: a snow white column, accented with a sleek cape, from Tom Ford's Fall 2012 collection.
It should be noted that press images from Ford's super-secret fall lineup haven't even been released yet—but leave it to Gwyneth to nab a dress that's been kept under wraps. Click through to shop her look.
Octavia's emotional reaction to her Best Supporting Actress win had us all choked up last night—but even though she didn't seem to know what to say while accepting her statuette, this metallic beaded number did all the talking for her. So pretty. Click through to shop her look.
When it comes to red-carpet dressing, you don't mess with Moi. Our favorite porcine fashion plate had her Zac gown custom-made for the Oscars, where The Muppets took home the Best Original Song trophy for "Man the Muppet"—which, by the way, has been stuck in our heads all day. Piggy's date Kermie doesn't look too shabby in his Brooks Brothers tux, either. Click through to shop her look.
At once daring and dramatic, Jessica's stunning gold bullion gown was a flawless choice. From that intricate metal threadwork to the flattering sweetheart bodice, it was our favorite look the actress has ever worn. And note the perfect styling choices: loose, undone hair, cat-eyed liner and dewy skin. Click through to shop her look.
We love a redhead in a red gown, and this bow-adorned number on Emma Stone is no exception. Hollywood's new favorite funny girl looked gorgeous. And despite being a first-time presenter, Emma pretty much stole the show during those few minutes onstage. Who else would like to see her co-host in 2013? Click through to shop her look.
Angie usually opts for body-conscious dresses, but we loved seeing her in this more voluminous, structural velvet gown. Of course, the magic was really in that thigh-high slit, and Brad Pitt's better half wasted no time in showing some leg—so much, in fact, that it earned its own Twitter account.

She might not have selected one of our personal choices for the big night, but she did go for Givenchy. And what a pretty Givenchy it was. Lighter than her usual red-carpet choices, this sculpted-bodice gown from Spring 2009 somehow walked the line between Old Hollywood and edgy. And to think that she only decided on this dress the morning of the Oscars! Click through to shop her look.
We always look forward to seeing Rose Byrne's red-carpet choices, and this one-shouldered sequined column was a prime pick. A nice counterpoint to the white sequined pantsuit she wore to the SAGs, this dress was simpler but still so flattering. And those chandelier-style Chanel earrings were our favorite item of jewelry from the entire evening. Click through to shop her look.
