I imagine getting ready for the Oscars is much like getting ready for your wedding. Dieting, exercising, hair, makeup and of course, finding the dress. Only the stars are lucky enough to get to do it pretty much every year! The adorable Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) pictured here attended the big event for the first time in a sweet teacup dress worthy of any wedding day (or in her case, prom?).
The ladies came out in full force tonight at the Oscars, and most did not disappoint (sorry Amy Adams and Nicole Kidman). Some of my favorites include Mila Kunis, Cate Blanchett and Michelle Williams. In comparison to the gowns at last year's Oscars, which felt very classic and subdued with gowns in basic black and neutrals reining supreme, 2011 is impressive. This time around, there are some serious punches of color and tons of detailing that have the "WOW" factor that every bride is looking for.
Although I'm guessing that you most likely won't be running out to purchase Anne Hathaway's red vintage Valentino anytime soon, here are some celeb photos of the night's biggest fashion trends that may inspire your own wedding day look.
