84th Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet Looks

There are two reasons we tune into The Oscars every year: 1. To see who takes home the gold and 2. To see what everyone is wearing. Film’s biggest night is also a major event in the world of fashion, as starlets step out in dresses fresh from the Spring runways or pulled from the vintage archives. We’ve rounded up some of the most talked about looks from last night. Our favorites were Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford (that cape!) and Jessica Chastain in Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
