Oscar Night 2011

Oscar Night 2011
There are so many things to debate about the Academy Awards--what films should win, which host was best, who impresses us with their presenting skills--but we can all agree on one thing: checking out the fashion choices of Hollywood's finest is absolutely essential. How else can you explain why otherwise sane individuals (like ourselves) will happily glue themselves to their couches for hours of pre-show dress coverage? In fact, we're so crazy about Oscar night, we willingly spend hours scouring the photo agencies for the best gowns--including the most interesting picks from the post-ceremony parties--in the hopes of creating one amazing Fashion Scene story. We've complied a collection of fabulous looks for you today, so please enjoy and don't forget to tell us which look you love best!
