The glitz and glamour of the Oscars!

Best dressed
There was certainly an interesting mix of dresses at the 78th Annual Academy Awards. Some of the most stylish stars will be disappointed to grace the worst dressed columns and some of the women who usually make terrible choices finally showed they have a bit of taste! One woman who always looks good is Salma Hayek, and she didn?t disappoint at the Oscars. She shimmered in a gorgeous, sea-blue Versace gown that set off her figure perfectly. Best dressed of the night we think! Another Latin bombshell who got it right was Jennifer Lopez. With her curves in all the right places and her gorgeous dark green pin-tucked Rita Watnick vintage gown, she looked happy and serene. Keira Knightley looked the ultimate Hollywood star in her ruby red Vera Wang gown and 1960’s Bulgari necklace and Reese Witherspoon shone in her gorgeous vintage Dior dress.

Black beauty
Despite celebrity stylist predictions of colour being the winner, there were a fair few who opted for stylish black gowns. Jennifer Aniston looked relaxed in her refined black Rochas dress, complete with sweeping train and stunning diamond jewellery and Hilary Swank shone in her slinky black Versace dress. Queen Latifah looked ever the star in a black Carmen Marc Valvo and Memoirs of a Geisha star Ziyi Zhang wore a gorgeous black and white strapless Giorgio Armani gown.

Worst dressed
Unfortunately black didn?t bode so well for Felicity Huffman. She wore an extremely low cut Zac Posen gown however it might have been a little too risqu? for the well respected actor. As always, there were plenty of red carpet disasters. Poor Helena Bonham Carter failed to get it right yet again. She worse a shiny, corseted dress that bulged in all the wrong places and made the diminutive star look like some kind of 80?s escapee. Surprisingly, Charlize Theron?s outfit wasn?t particularly appealing either. Her pleated charcoal grey Dior dress had a huge bow on her left shoulder and criss-crossing pieces of fabric all over it. Unattractive at best.
