Ladies and gentlemen, we witnessed a phenomenon at the 2012 Oscars tonight: Angelina Jolie's right leg. From her arrival on the red carpet to presenting onstage, she just could not stop hitching her hand squarely on her hip to pop out her svelte gam ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Posing with Brad Pitt? POP. Solo red carpet shots? POP. Reading from the teleprompter? POP. Sitting in her seat? POP. Nah, just kidding, that would look tawdry (but CONSISTENT!). Angie's black Atelier Versace strapless, zigzag bodice with a hiiiiiiiigh-thigh slit was the perfect curtain to showcase her scene-stealing limb, and the structure of the bustier provided endless hand placement possibilities.

Our favorite time of year is here! We're talking about the 2012 Oscars, aka the Academy Awards, also known as the closest thing fashion stylists get to competing in the Olympics. Watching the nominees and Hollywood royalty waltz down the red carpet in all their fairy-tale princess glory is our sport of choice, and we've been glued to the pre-show proceedings ready to decree the fairest of them all. We were captivated by giant crimson bows, voluminous blood orange confections, lace trains, and a particular prince who broke the black tuxedo spell with some swoon-worthy velvet panache. It wasn't easy *wipes sodden brow* but here, without further ado, are our Best Dressed looks of the night.

Dear Emma Stone, YOU WIN. In the category of Best Vivid Oscar Dress of Classic Feminine Delight, you get the imaginary MTV Style golden button statue. Not only was this crimson Giambattista Valli gown a triumphant choice due to the gargantuan halter neck bow, elegant silhouette, and undulating floor-grazing hem, we were particularly taken with the poise in which you wore it. Look at the relaxed arms anchored by that single diamond bracelet, the subtle makeup that highlights the skin yet doesn't detract from the gown, and the side-swept hair that is at once classic and crowning in a complementary strawberry hue. We're smitten, bowled over, and utterly transfixed by this ensemble. BRAVO to one of the most stunning gals of the night.

We've already dished on all the best-dressed ladies who graced the Oscars red carpet, but we just can't deny all the gorgeous tress trends that topped their glamorous looks. From super chic, chin-length bobs to sleek, high ponies to soft, side-swept waves, stars flaunted all sorts of cop-worthy coifs that we want to try ASAP.

First up: the fail-safe high bun. Rooney Mara, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lopez, and Tina Fey all showed off their dome adornments in impossibly chic ways. Rooney went for a sleek, tucked-under ponytail with shiny, blunt bangs, which starkly contrasted her soft, white Givenchy gown. Emma opted for a deep side part and pulled her fiery strands into a big, coiled bun. She kept her hair simple in the front as to not compete with her Giambattista Valli high-neck bow dress. If you could tear your eyes away from J.Lo's curve-hugging Zuhair Murad gown, you'd notice her on-point, super thick (and tight!) crown bun. Tina Fey went for a messier look in a teased pompadour bun paired with her navy Carolina Herrera strapless dress.

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