Hosting the Oscars is no easy task. And we're just talking about the outfit changes! Anne Hathaway, who cohosted the 83rd Annual Academy Awards last night with nominee James Franco, went through eight stunning looks throughout the evening, all while singing, dancing, and laughing at Franco's deadpan jokes. The actress (who is the youngest person to ever host, by the way) definitely deserves kudos for that! Here's the look-by-look...

RED CARPET ALERT: Anne was one of a handful of celebs who chose red for the red carpet. Her pick, this Valentino tube dress with some serious bustle action going on. To drive the crimson theme home, the actress painted her nails and pout in the hue.

SNOW QUEEN: For her opening monologue Anne wore a white strapless flowing number with beading by Givenchy. Oh, and Anne, don't think we didn't notice that you changed your nail polish from red to nude!

BOYS CLUB: James Franco wasn't the only one to wear a tux onstage. Anne slipped into the feminine Lanvin number with satin lapels for her brief sing-song. She paired the sexy suit with glittering Swarovski crystal-covered Brian Atwood pumps.

GREY GARDEN: Rumor has it that this princess-style gown was custom designed for Anne by Vivienne Westwood. The actress teamed the taffeta and lace corseted frock with a fancy pants diamond and amethyst necklace.

SHIMMY-SHIMMY: This one-shoulder silver beaded embroidered gown by Oscar de la Renta may have been Anne's personal favorite. With all of its tassels, she couldn't help but dance. Totally understandable. P.S. We wouldn't have minded seeing her hair coifed like this—wavy and carefree—for the entire show.

BRICK HOUSE: Anne showed off her amazing figure in this brick-colored Atelier Versace silk gown, which featured a body-hugging, corset-style bodice.

PURPLE REIGN: This luminescent and satin-y sapphire Armani Privé evening gown features off-the-shoulder straps, a fitted bodice and a high back slit. We are dying to know what color/brand lipstick Anne is wearing here. Anyone? Anyone?

ALL THAT GLITTERS: To close the night, Anne slinked into a skintight Tom Ford lace long-sleeve dress, which was adorned with mesmerizing crystals, and pulled her hair into a low party-ready bun.

Hottest Hustlers

Tags , , , , , , , , , ,

Who says you have to wear a floor-grazing gown to look good at the Oscars? These fly guys sported tuxes and suits, and—thanks to a few personal touches—looked just as fierce as their female counterparts.

'THE SOCIAL NETWORK' CUTIES: Andrew Garfield (in Louis Vuitton), Justin Timberlake (in custom-tailored Tom Ford), and Jesse Eisenberg (in classic tux with a skinny tie) proved that just because you play a geek on TV doesn't mean you're not chic in real life.

BOWS FOR THE BOYS: Mark Wahlberg (in a Giorgio Armani two-button tux), Josh Hutcherson (in a perfect-fit ensemble), and Mark Ruffalo (in a sharp tux with a black-buttoned shirt and Tods shoes) look just as comfortable in a suit and bow tie as they do in roughed-up jeans and a tee.

GUYS IN TIES: Josh Brolin, Russell Brand, and Christian Bale put their own twist on the standard suit and tie ensemble. Josh chose a navy suit with a royal blue tie, Russell spiced up his look in a striped shirt, and Christian rocked triple-black.

The red (er, fuschia) carpet at Sunday night's 83rd Annual Academy Awards (aka the granddaddy of all awards shows) featured a handful of classic fashion hits (trains, bustles, etc.), plus a slew of surprise ensembles (who knew so many celebs would rock red?!). Here are the looks we’ll be talking about ALL week long…

MILA KUNIS: Black Swan star Mila Kunis brought the glamor in a lacy lilac Elie Saab gown, which she wore with Neil Lane jewelry. J'ADORE!

MICHELLE WILLIAMS: Michelle Williams, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Blue Valentine, balanced the conservative cut of her champagne Chanel gown with head-to-toe encrusted crystals.

FLORENCE WELCH: Florence Welch, who performed "If I Rise" from 127 Hours, let her fiery red hair do the talking, while keeping her gown choice—a lace tiered Valentino number—muted.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE: One of the first celebs to walk the red carpet, Jennifer Lawrence got the party started in a sleek red Calvin Klein shift that looked painted on!

For every awards show that comes, we try to predict which trends will rule the red carpet. Most of the time, we are completely surprised (pleasantly) by the looks the stars step out in...which was the case at Sunday night's 2011 Academy Awards. From lovely lace to shades of purple, here’s the lowdown on this year’s hottest Oscars red carpet trends.

IN THE NUDE: Mandy Moore, Halle Berry, and Florence Welch looked naturally beautiful in nude-hued gowns. Mandy wore a shoulder-baring Marchesa dress, while Halle also sported a magnificent Marchesa creation, and Florence gave the red carpet a vintage-y vibe in a tired Valentino frock.

RED HAUTE: Jennifer Lawrence (in Calvin Klein), Sandra Bullock (in Vera Wang), and Jennifer Hudson (in Versace) were just a few of the bombshells to wear a serious pop of color.

SHADES OF PURPLE: Purple reigned with Mila Kunis donning a boundary-pushing Elie Saab gown with white drop earrings, Natalie Portman showing her baby bump in a flowing Rodarte dress, and Cate Blanchett wearing a work of art in the form of a Givenchy frock.

GLITTER AND SEQUINS: It's one way to turn heads on the red carpet! Mandy Moore (in Monique Lhuillier), Amy Adams (in L'Wren Scott), and Michelle Williams (in Chanel) weren't hard to miss in their sparkling gowns.

SHEER THINGS: Mila Kunis, Hailee Steinfeld, and Scarlett Johansson looked lovely in lace. Mila's lavender Elie Saab dress was demure yet insanely sexy. Meanwhile, Hailee looked like a modern day princess in Marchesa, and Scarlett's Dolce & Gabbana gown was the talk of the carpet.

8:16 pmZachary Levi, who is singing with Mandy Moore at tonight's show, proves (once again) why we chose him as a Hottest Hustler a few weeks ago. This guy looks amazingly sharp from neck (the bow tie!) to toe (the shiny lace-ups!).

8:01 pm — We're seeing a trend! Sandra Bullock ALSO wore red on the red carpet. Her pick: a classic and beautiful Vera Wang strapless gown with a full and fabulous bustle.

7:56 pmGwyneth Paltrow looks sleek and modern (like we'd want to look on a red carpet!) in a metallic gold Calvin Klein gown with a deep skinny V-neck front.

7:53 pmJustin Timberlake might just be the best-dressed man on the red carpet. Probably because his Tom Ford tux is custom-tailored to fit him like a glove.

7:51 pmNicole Kidman, who is nominated for Best Actress, looks statuesque in a strapless origami-style Dior gown.

7:33 pm — Best actor nominee Jesse Eisenberg makes nerdy look so freakin' chic in a classic black suit with a skinny tie.

7:24 pm — Who's digging the lacy, form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana gown that Scarlett Johansson is rocking? WE ARE!! Our only critique is that the maroon hue doesn't pop off the red carpet as much as we'd like it to.

7:09 pm — In a sea of black and white tuxes, Jennifer Hudson brings a pop of color in this tangerine Versace halter dress. And the word on the street is that she's wearing purple shoes underneath!

6:59 pm — Bucking the black-and-white tux trend, Russell Brand wears a black-and-navy ensemble with a horizontal striped shirt.

6:57 pmAmy Adams' L'Wren Scott '40's-style glitter dress is fab, but the biceps that she's baring are even more awesome!

6:53 pm — Lovely is probably the best way we can describe Michelle Williams' look—her lightly coiffed pixie, her circle diamond earrings, and her glittery Chanel frock.

6:51 pm — Performer Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine wears a lot of nude/beige on red carpets, so this lacy Valentino number was no big surprise. But we love it nonetheless!!

6:48 pmAnne Hathaway looks red hot in a strapless, body-hugging Valentino gown. Check the gorgeous train details!

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards is tonight! Will King's Speech win for Best Film? Will Natalie Portman take home an Oscar for her role in Black Swan? Who knows! The more important question (as far as we're concerned) is: What will the stars be wearing? Will young nominee Hailee Steinfeld rock something new from Prada or something vintage? Will cohost James Franco keep his ensemble classy or kooky? Well, it's time to find out. We'll be here live-blogging the red carpet arrivals, so come back and tell us what you're loving/hating.

There's no denying that Jersey Shore's Snooki loves herself some leopard print apparel. We've seen the castie in slippers, blankets, coats, swimsuits, and itty-bitty cocktail dresses that paid homage to the wild kingdom. But this just might the most subtle show of animal adoration that we've ever seen her rock. While attending the grand opening of TEQA in New York City last night, Snooks teamed her black minidress with a cat pendant and matching clutch and leopard print booties. Probably, one feline-inspired accessory would have been plenty for the pint-size reality star, but what do you think?

Actress Rachel Bilson is the latest celeb to take advantage of fringe benefits. The former star of The OC was spotted leaving a West Hollywood salon yesterday with new brow-skimming bangs. But it wasn’t just the haircut that caught our attention. Check out her subtle ombre highlights (GORGE), her dark square sunglasses (COOL), her scarf that adds a little color to her ensemble (SMART), and her studded Burberry handbag (AMAZING). We think Rachel and her fab casual style would stand out on the street, whether she was a star or not.

"Weird." It's Nicki Minaj's word—not ours—and she used it to describe herself in her cover story for the March issue of BlackBook magazine. “When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was,” said the 26-year-old rapper. "I'm definitely playing a role. I'm an entertainer, and that's what entertainers do. That's what people pay for. They don't pay to see me roll out of bed with crust in my eyes, and say, 'Hey guys, this is me, authentic.' They pay for a show." And what an incredible show it has been—especially in the fashion department. Check out the myriad of looks Nicki was able to rock for the cover story with a curly-fro wig and a rackful of designer threads...

NO WONDER 14-year-old actress Hailee Steinfeld always looks so poised and polished on the red carpet. Pre-True Grit and Oscar nomination(!!!), the young star had quite a bit of practice in front of the cameras. In 2007, the then 10-year-old modeled hoodies, denim, and outerwear for a Guess Kids ad campaign, and she looked so darn cute doing it. It makes us wonder if all that time spent trying on clothes as a child also helped fine-tune the RIDIC style sense she has now.
