By now it should be more than obvious that Jessica Chastain is not only incredible onscreen (she's up for Best Actress in Zero Dark Thirty) but a total style MVP as well. And as we learned on the Oscars red carpet tonight, the fashion world's love affair with Jessica is totally mutual! The flame-haired beauty chatted with MTV on the red carpet tonight about her "fashion-gasm" moment in her nude Armani Privé couture gown. "What I love so much about the dress is that it's a throwback to the glamour of Old Hollywood," she told Josh Horowitz and Janell Snowdon. "It's a Happy Birthday, Mr. President kind of a dress." Um, we'll say! So let's all join Jessica in obsessing over her dress, shall we? Get the scoop from the star herself in the exclusive video below!

Anne Hathaway Oscars

Anne Hathaway might be channeling Audrey Hepburn on the red carpet tonight in her pale pink Prada gown, but let's be real— the star's Old Hollywood ensemble isn't the ONLY reason people are buzzing about her Oscars look. OK, so there's no avoiding it: the darts across Anne's chest coupled with the chilly L.A. weather makes her wardrobe malfunction entirely too obvious, and everyone is taking notice. #Hathawaynipples is now blowing up on Twitter, and you know what that means. Exactly a year later since Angelina Jolie's statement pose rocked everyone's world, the social media universe just mayyyy have finally found its replacement for @Angiesrightleg. *shifts eyes uncomfortably* Scene stealers, much?!

Quvenzhané Wallis  Oscars

Finally! Oscar night is officially off and running, people, and leave it to Quvenzhané Wallis to start things on a seriously high fashion note. The 9-year-old Best Actress nominee (she's up for her star-making turn in Beasts of the Southern Wild) was one of the early attendees on the red carpet tonight, practically OOZING adorableness in a midnight blue dress from Giorgio Armani. The princessy custom frock, which is embellished with rhinestones over layers of tulle, comes courtesy of the Italian label's Armani Junior collection. Oh, and get this— Quvenzhané's the very first person to rock it on the red carpet! So basically what we're saying is, she's not ONLY making Oscar history as the youngest nominee, but she's making fashion history, too. Girl is on fire! We've been waiting to see if the actress would carry one of her 20 (!!) signature puppy purses on the red carpet, and she did NOT disappoint. Meet Sammy the dog, who's also glammed up in a formal tutu and a tiara. Hey, it IS the Oscars, after all...

8:22 PM — Whoa. K. Stew's official crutch holder looks like an FBI agent in a way that I think is TOTALLY appropriate. She needs Ray Ban aviators even.

Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams, Halle Berry, Bjork, Gwyneth Paltrow, Oscars

We're not sure if you could tell from the QUADRILLION movie fashion articles we've been churning out for the past few weeks, but we are suffering from MAJOR Oscars fever here at MTV Style. With the 2013 Academy Awards RIGHT around the corner (this Sunday, y'all!) our anticipation of all the history-making red carpet togs is reaching inexplicable heights. We are SO sugar high crazy off the waiting, guys. Or our anxious snack-consuming disease... I DIGRESS. Because the Oscars put the final glamorous cap on the winter awards season, Hollywood's best and brightest save their most show-stopping sartorial numbers for this event, and the results are truly dazzling. To quench our thirst for Oscars fashion, we took a look back — from Angelina Jolie's black velvet Versace Atelier last year (#neverforget Angie's Right Leg) to Michelle Williams in stunning yellow Vera Wang for the 2006 show, from Halle Berry's risky but drop-dead sheer bodiced 2002 Elie Saab to Bjork's infamous Marjan Pejoski swan dress to the unforgettable image Gwyneth Paltrow in baby pink Ralph Lauren way back in 1999, and everything in between — and put the most memorable red carpet ensembles from the past 20 years together in a pretty little photo gallery for you to click through endlessly. That is, until the action starts THIS YEAR with our 2013 Oscars red carpet fashion live blog. Enjoy!

Jennifer Lawrence

After counting down for what seems like forever, the 2013 Academy Awards are this Sunday night! And you'd better bet our eyes will be zoomed way, WAY in on Jennifer Lawrence. This year the star is nominated for her incredible performance in Silver Linings Playbook, which marks the second time she's up for the Best Actress trophy (she nabbed a nom in 2011 for Winter's Bone but lost out to Natalie Portman in Black Swan). There's no question J.Law has been killing the fashion game onscreen and off these days, and we can't WAIT to see what she turns up in this weekend. But in addition to placing bets on which designer she'll choose (Dior? Viktor & Rolf?) and getting your Oscar night plans squared away, here's one more thing to make the time fly: take a trip down Jennifer's red carpet memory lane! We've rounded up her most iconic style moments, from back when she was just a baby-faced Kentucky teenager ALL the way up to as recently as this week, proving just HOW far she's come. See for yourself in Jennifer Lawrence's red carpet style evolution below!

Quvenzhane Wallis

This year's littlest Oscars Best Actress nominee, Quvenzhané Wallis, initially captured our hearts in the riveting indie Beasts of the Southern Wild, and as we've soldiered on through awards season, she's caught our eye as a rising style star. Her red carpet steez strays infrequently from her go-to cocktail frock + shiny flats + curls, but one style element that's definitely a constant in her public appearance outfits is: a plushy puppy purse! During a recent stint on The Ellen Show, Quvenzhané revealed to DeGeneres that she has "about 20" different puppy purses, and confirmed that she will be toting one at this month's Academy Awards. "Yes, of course," she told Ellen, "That's my signature! I've had this since Utah." Utah! She's referring, of course, to last year's Sundance Film Festival when and where Beasts premiered.

We love movies. We love them for their fashion, for their stories, but also for all of the glitz and glamour that surrounds them, including, of course, the red carpets. And what's the red carpet to end all red carpets? I mean we hardly even have to answer that question, do we? The Oscars, of course! Well, the nominations were announced yesterday (MTV News has the full list), and we're already chomping at the bit to see the dresses that float down the carpet come February 24th. With a best actress category that includes both Oscar veterans and newcomers, it's going to be a good year, we think. Between Jennifer Lawrence, who was nominated in the same category in 2011 and regularly appears all over MTV Style; Quvenzhané Wallis, who is the youngest person to ever be nominated for Best Actress at just 9 years old; and Emmanuelle Riva, who will be the oldest person nominated in the category at 85 years old, there are a lot of firsts and a lot of familiar faces. Jessica Chastain, who regularly tops our top looks lists and got a Supporting Actress nom last year, will be pulling out a killer look without a doubt; and Naomi Watts, who is a two time best actress nominee, always breaks out the old hollywood glamour. Let's take a look at some of our nominees past looks!

When she was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Winter's Bone in 2011, she became, at the time, the second youngest actress to be nominated in the category. She was just 20 years old. For her first Oscars, Jenny wore a super simple but super sultry long red Calvin Klein gown and kept her hair and makeup understated and youthful. She's been on many a red carpet since then, between other major movie roles and, of course, The Hunger Games series, but we think Jennifer will go with a similar approach to this year's awards. Like her character in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer isn't afraid to take risks, but she also has a style all her own. We would love to see her amp up the glam factor, maybe with some old Hollywood flourishes, but we're not sure how HER that would be. Nevertheless, we're sure she'll surprise us with her look.

If the 2012 Oscars wasn't enough to satiate your red carpet appetite, we have just two words for you: After. Parties. Our favorite post-show shindig was definitely the Vanity Fair Oscars party. Glammed-up gals filed in donning chic couture ensembles, impeccable locks, and flawless makeup. Check out our top late-night looks below, and let us know YOUR favorite frock in the comments.

Lily Collins was certainly the fairest of them all in her nude and azure blue lace brocade Monique Lhuiller gown. The Mirror Mirror star oozed elegance with a soft swept-back updo, statement brows, long lashes, and a light pink lip. She sported minimal accessories and let the dress do all the talking.

Miley Cyrus Sky Ferreira Katy Perry Elton John Oscars Viewing Party

Whew, it was a loooong 2012 Oscar night. From a fash parade of Best Dressed lovelies to Angelina Jolie's leg workin' the red carpet (and Oscar stage) like a seasoned pro, it was an evening full of style sensations and straight-up style shenanigans. And it didn't stop with the actual awards show, either. As you know, there are many post-Oscar bashes to attend, and Elton John's annual dinner, in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, is always a celeb- and musician-friendly fave. This year's event drew everyone from Miley Cyrus and Sky Ferreira to Katy Perry and Nina Dobrev. Also? It was an evening awash in silver sparkle and matte black panache.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
