Maybe realizing that, as a double nominee, all eyes really were on her, the Reader and Revolutionary Road star took a welcome break from her customary black to break out in a form-fitting cobalt blue gown by Narciso Rodriguez.

BEST DRESSED ANNE HATHAWAY
In a white Azzaro column dress, the best actress nominee proved it's a gift to be simple...though, with a gorgeous jeweled neckline and inset waist, thankfully not too simple.

WORST DRESSED ANGELINA JOLIE
Could this be an elaborate prank by one of the world's most beautiful women to see just how dully she can dress and get away with it? If so, game over Lara Croft. Game. Over.

BEST DRESSED EVAN RACHEL WOOD
Proving she's come a long way from her Goth (cough, Marilyn Manson, cough) days, throughout awards season the Wrestler actress has been playing the part of best-dressed starlet impeccably — case in point, this perfectly fitted, one-shouldered Monique Lhuillier.

BEST DRESSED JANE KRAKOWSKI
A testament to the powers of double-sided tape, the 30 Rock star's Roberto Cavalli proved the old adage that one's gown can never be too red or too plunging on the carpet.

BEST DRESSED CHRISTINA HENDRICKS
If a little red can go a long way, then what about a lot of red? From her fiery 'do to her crimson lips and her scarlet Carolina Herrera gown, we love that the Mad Men star piled it on.

BEST DRESSED EVA LONGORIA PARKER
Okay, so we could have done with one less ruffle, but we have to applaud the Desperate Housewives star for resisting the urge to fall back on the siren style that won her raves at the Golden Globes, choosing instead a softer, more romantic Jenny Packham. It's positively peachy.

BEST DRESSED ROSARIO DAWSON
In a silver Dolce & Gabbana, the presenter managed to stay on the right side of the fine line between statuesque and statuette.

After the fall of the bandage dress, have we moved into the winter of the white halter? We started to wonder, after seeing both Benjamin Button star TARAJI P. HENSON (in Herve Leroux) and House's OLIVIA WILDE (in Ralph Lauren) wearing the old Hollywood classic.
