Our 7 Top Picks for Best Oscar Gowns

In addition to basking in the glow of the two Oscar wins for "Milk" (Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor for Sean Penn) last night, we couldn't take our eyes off of the stunning parade of red carpet fashion. Here, our picks for who looked more dazzling than the rest:

1. Marisa Tomei in a jaw-droppingly detailed Atelier Versace gown

2. Penelope Cruz posing in a 1950s Balmain couture fairytale frock

3. Natalie Portman looking statuesque in a jewel-incrusted, bubblegum pink Rodarte gown

4. Sarah Jessica Parker, sweeping by in a frothy "barely mint" Dior Haute Couture gown

5. Kate Winslet accepting her Best Actress award in a controversial Yves Saint Laurent number, which nevertheless channeled Grace Kelly beautifully.

6. Viola Davis shining bright in a disco-meets-old Hollywood number by Reem Acra

7. Melissa George showing off every curve in a structural fishtail frock by Dolce & Gabanna

Honorable Mention: Tina Fey, who appeared radiant in a metallic form-fitting Zac Posen gown
