Absolutely radiant! Doesn’t she just glow?

The cape that was part of Gwyneth’s gown didn’t sit right with me. But once it came off? She looked so long and lithe. The cuff and cocktail ring are perfect accessories.

Unexpected and elegant. It did look like she’d had some work done though — her face looked different.

Even though she didn’t win best actress, Glenn Close was a red carpet winner in this custom Zac Posen gown. The matching tuxedo jacket gives her a terrific air of authority.

All in all, there weren’t too many ornate gowns or accessories. This year seemed to be all about how less is more.

Who do you think wore it best at the 2012 Oscars?
