2012's Best Onscreen Costumes: Our Oscar-Worthy Picks

This Sunday night, some of our all-time favorite actors and actresses will face off at the 85th Academy Awards—as will the costume designers who worked nonstop behind the scenes to create the wardrobe for their nominated films. We're thrilled that certain designers earned a nod this year—Jacqueline Durran for Anna Karenina and Paco Delgado for Les Misérables, for instance—but there are a good handful of flicks we wish had been nominated for their costumes, too.

Click through to see which onscreen wardrobes we loved most last year—both the Oscar-eligible and the sadly snubbed—as well as to learn our personal pick for Best Costume Design.

Moonrise Kingdom

Why: Fans of Wes Anderson's reliably kooky repertoire, A.P.C.'s utilitarian minimalism and general Brooklyn-hipster je ne sais quoi swooned for Kasia Walicka-Maimone's work on this flick. From Suzy's DIYed beetle earrings to the Khaki Scouts' neatly-pressed shorts and shirts to all those Peter Pan collars, the looks added so much to Anderson's sweet tale of young love.

Nominated? Nope. We're still scratching our heads over this one.
