Most Glamourous: Penelope Cruz
Best Actress nominee Penélope Cruz was a style winner in a showstopping Atelier Versace number. “You can only wear this kind of dress to the Oscars!” said the Volver star, who dazzled in 60 carats of Chopard diamonds.
Best Figure Flatterer: Cameron Diaz
“It’s great to be able to come out and support the people you’ve worked with,” said presenter Cameron Diaz, who flaunted her figure in second-skin Valentino and accessorized with Brian Atwood slingbacks and almost $2 million worth of Cartier jewels!
Slinkiest Fit: Cate Blanchett
“It’s like the love of your life – they choose you, these frocks,” said Best Supporting Actress nominee Cate Blanchett, who plucked this Armani Privé number from the runway in Paris. The dress, made of Swarovski-crystal mesh, weighs a whopping 40 pounds!
Hottest Hue: Nicole Kidman
“It takes a few hours to get ready,” said Nicole Kidman, who wowed in a silk-crepe Balenciaga gown made just for her. She completed the look with a pair of diamond cuff bracelets (with 375 carats!) designed by her stylist, L’Wren Scott.
Flirtiest Look: Beyonce
“I guess it’s mint green,” said Beyoncé about her pretty bejeweled one-strap Armani Privé gown. While the soft shade flattered the singer’s brown eyes, the daring slit highlighted her long legs – and offered a glimpse of her sparkly ankle-strap shoes.
Sexiest Transformation: Reese Witherspoon
Ryan who? Reese Witherspoon turned heads in a pleated silk-jacquard amethyst bustier dress by Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci. The finishing touch? A gorgeous 83-carat Van Cleef & Arpels diamond bracelet from 1937.
