Straight from our Style Files, we bring to you fashion trends on the Oscar red carpet this year. Who copied who?
Barely There: Best Supporting Actress nominee Hailee Steinfeld made nude as sweet as previous Best Actress Halle Berry made it sexy. Mandy Moore and Michelle Williams also worked the trend
Purple Rain: Between the, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson had every shade of purple covered, from the palest lilac to a deep aubergine
Red Hot: Fire engine red was the colour code of the evening with host Anne Hathaway leading the way in Valentino. Best Actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence was simple yet stunning, last year's winner Sandra Bullock looked good enough to be given away as the prize instead of the Golden Man, and new mommy Penelope Cruz showed off her post baby curves in sequinned L'Wren Scott
Heavy Metal: Our very own girls from Bollywood worked metallic on the red carpet - Aishwarya was current in bronze and Mallika toned her usual shin show down in silver. Gwyneth Paltrow and Annette Bening both went for shimmer as well, but the girl who really nailed it was Anne Hathaway
Colour Blocked: Amy Adams and Jennifer Hudson injected the generally staid red carpet with a shot of fearless colour. Best Supporting Actress nominee Amy chose sparkling, electric blue by L'Wren Scott and Jennifer Hudson showed off her brand new figure in tangerine Atelier Versace
Column Dresses: Don't you think ScarJo, Amy, Michelle and Anne give the Oscar itself some tough competition in these form fitting dresses?
Grey's Anatomy: Hillary Swank and Helen Mirren picked grey to set off their cropped hair. You have to hand it to these ladies for pulling off a colour that could turn dismal with such ease
Black, Not Magic : Cinderella went to the ball but so did her evil stepmother. We actually think Helena Bonham Carter's dress is not as jaw dropping as it could have been, but Sharon Stone and Virginia Madsen – sticking to monochrome does not guarantee a good dress
Flaming Lips: Anne gets the Marilyn Monroe look right with fire engine red lips, but Sharon Stone and Virginia Madsen end up looking like they've watched too many vampire movies
Short Cuts: The pixie crop has an Oscar moment courtesy Michelle Williams, Halle Berry and Helen Mirren
Hair Raisers: Swept up hair was a favourite style this year. From Mandy Moore's neat chignon to Sharon Stone who took it up, up and away – every hairdresser worth their salt styled it up
Finger Waves: Channelling Veronica Lake and old Hollywood glamour, our girls Natalie, Amy and Anne broke out the hair pomade for a slick, waved look
The Messy Bob: Scarlett Johansson and Marisa Tomei give bedhead a good name in tousled, shoulder length bobs
Free Falling: Aishwarya and Mallika kept it long and loose, as was to be expected, but look who's keeping them company – Goldilocks Jennifer Lawrence went heavy on the big rollers as well
