The Oscars red carpet was rife with stunning gowns, but thanks to these A-list ladies, we've got some serious best-dressed competition. Kerry Washington chose an embellished coral-hued Miu Miu gown, Naomi Watts shined bright in a silver-sequined Armani Privé number, and Reese Witherspoon went for Old Hollywood glamour in a blue-and-black Louis Vuitton dress. Meanwhile, best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence and Charlize Theron both chose Christian Dior Haute Couture for the night's festivities. Now that you've got the breakdown, it's time to cast your best-dressed vote below.
Jennifer Lawrence celebrated her big win at the afterparty festivities in a shimmery metallic Calvin Klein gown and Brian Atwood shoes. The plunging neckline and body-con silhouette highlighted her figure to a T, while drop earrings, bold stacked Shay cuffs, and a Elahn statement ring injected a refreshing edge to the overall look.

Oscar winner Anne Hathaway changed into a custom light-blue silk Saint Laurent column gown for the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty last night. While her red-carpet look included a gorgeous Tiffany & Co. necklace, the actress kept things simple with her second look, allowing the intricate gold-sequined neckline to shine through. Simple diamond stud earrings, an ear-to-ear smile, and, of course, her golden statue completed her party style. Do you love it?Vote on all of our Oscar polls here!

You won't see many miniskirts at the Academy Awards, but floor-length hemlines didn't make this set of Oscar gowns any less sexy.

Zoe Saldana turned up the sex appeal for the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty tonight — she showed up in a lacy black Givenchy number that was basically the epitome of boudoir-chic. Saldana accessorized her dress with a few silver rings and a gorgeous pair of drop earrings, and capitalized on the Old Hollywood glamour with a slicked-back chignon and a sweep of red lipstick. Dare we say that we love this look more than her red-carpet confection earlier tonight? Time for you to weigh in now.Vote on all of our Oscar polls here!
Naomi Watts did the old Oscars switch-up on us tonight, swapping her incredible silver-sequined Armani Privé gown for an equally stunning Emilio Pucci number. The actress arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in the asymmetrical black-and-gold beaded dress, which perfectly accentuated her curves. Not only did we die for Naomi's first look, but her second one tonight is just as killer — what do you think?Vote on all of our Oscar polls here!
Diane Kruger arrived at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in what could potentially be one of the coolest dresses we've ever seen on the afterparty circuit. Crafted in a messy-meets-modernist black-and-white finish, Kruger's leg-baring Giambattista Valli look caught our attention and kept it there. Rest assured, the blond beauty kept everything else minimal, pairing the look with a slicked-back bun, Neil Lane cluster earrings, a gold-and-black clutch, a Jaeger-LeCoultre diamond-encrusted watch, and crisp white Christian Louboutin pointy-toe pumps.

In addition to all the shimmer and shine, there was no denying the influx of pale-colored gowns at the Oscars this evening — and it's not hard to see why these lighter hues were so popular. Spanning from blush pink to dove gray, celebrities chose the perfect pale hue to complement their best assets. Jessica Chastain's custom Armani Privé gown looked perfect against her ginger locks; Charlize Theron practically glowed against her stark white Christian Dior Haute Couture gown; and Oscar winner Anne Hathaway took home her prize in a pale pink Prada number. There's much more where that came from; click on to see all of the starlets in their pretty pale gowns.
