No matter the reason, the following style savvy divas brought an unexpected, fresh take to the Emmys red carpet, and did so in flawless fashion!

Yellow was the biggest trend on the red carpet, with stars like Julianne Moore and Kaley Cuoco rockin’ this bold color. But it was Emmy winners Julie Bowen and Claire Danes who really took home the citron cake last night!

With the start of fall officially on Saturday, it was no surprise that the jeweled toned hues of the season would make an appearance on the red carpet. 30 Rock funny lady, Tina Fey, looked gorgeous in autumn’s “it” color – burgundy. Her strapless Vivienne Westwood gown was a sophisticated choice, with a corseted bodice and ornate gold embellishments.


2 Broke Girls star, Kat Dennings, was ravishing in a wine hued goddess gown by J. Mendel. Her fair skin, raven hair and matching lips were the perfect complements to this beautiful look.

Oscars 2012 Best Dressed

The hottest celebrities hit the Oscars red carpet in impeccable style Sunday night, drawing a memorable close to tinsel town’s award season! On Hollywood’s biggest night, the best dressed stars channeled the simplicity and glamour of the 1920’s film era, paying homage to the silent but golden winner of the evening, “The Artist.”


17-time Academy Award nominee Meryl Streep was an image of Oscar gold in her custom, eco-friendly Lanvin long sleeve gown. The deep neckline and asymmetrical draping added to the drama of the Best Actress winner’s look, while her Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe pumps and Lanvin clutch were the ideal touches to complete her ensemble.


Best Supporting Actress winner Octavia Spencer was the belle of the ball in a creamy metallic Tadashi Shoji gown with dazzling embellishments. “The Help” actress wore Tadashi to many red carpet events this award season, but this short sleeve gown took top honors. I love how the perfectly placed crystals cinched in her waist to show off her beautiful, curvaceous figure!


Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams ended her awards season run on a high note in a gorgeous silk and organza Louis Vuitton strapless gown. Her fiery orange dress featured a feminine peplum waist, one of the hottest fashion trends for spring. The “My Week with Marilyn” star finished off her exquisite look with a 30-carat brilliant cut necklace and vintage brooch by Fred Leighton.


Presenter Milla Jovovich looked elegant in a silvery white, sequined Elie Saab Couture one shoulder gown. The “Resident Evil” star topped off her look with Jacob & Co. jewels and an Edie Parker clutch. Although it was her first walk down the Oscars red carpet, Milla looked like a pro as her delicate gown sparkled and showcased her slim frame.


Presenter Jennifer Lopez definitely turned heads on stage in her sexy and shimmery Zuhair Murad long sleeve gown. The plunging neckline and seductive cutouts complimented JLo’s flawless figure, reminding us why only she can pull off such a daring dress. Wardrobe malfunction aside, nobody can doubt that Jennifer looked stunning in this body hugging gown!
