Nominated for her work on The Artist, one could have easily guessed that the film editor was wearing a gown made by Hefty when she showed up on the red carpet in this trash bag-like creation.
Wearing a fitted gold Marchesa gown that gathered into a rather unflattering rose shape at her waist, Keibler looked like Oscar come to life in this metallic disaster.
Between the billowy sleeves and the shapeless silhouette, the Best Supporting Actress nominee did little to complement her curvaceous figure when she showed up in this Marina Rinaldi dress.
Always America's golden girl, and usually a red carpet favorite, Bullock hit a fashion snag when she opted to pair a high ponytail with this ill-fitting Marchesa gown.
White as snow
There was no shortage of white gowns on last night's red carpet, as seen on celebrities like The Descendants' Shailene Woodley and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara.
Adding a punch of color to this year's Oscars, red carpet darlings Natalie Portman (in Dior) and Emma Stone (in Giambattista Valli) opted for gowns in bold shades of red.
Always the trendsetters, celebs like Tina Fey and Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams showcased one of spring's biggest trends when they showed up in peplum-style gowns by Carolina Herrera and Louis Vuitton, respectively.
