While movies like Django Unchained and Silver Linings Playbook faced off for Best Picture at last night's 85th Annual Academy Awards, an altogether different kind of competition was happening offstage and in our living rooms. We're referring to the star-studded red carpet, where Hollywood's best and brightest showed up in a parade of glamorous looks to vie for the Best Dressed title. We think every one of these ladies deserves accolades, whether it's Best Silhouette for Jennifer Lawrence's body-skimming gown or Most Show-Stopping Color for Kerry Washington's gorgeous coral dress. Click through our slideshow to see our top ten favorite looks from the evening.
