Here are a few of our top picks from the 83rd Academy Awards red carpet last night…

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy

Poppy Evans, Fashion Editor: ‘Cate looks so super modern but ultra feminine, I love it.’

Jenna McArthur, Junior Features Writer and Stylist: ‘I love Cate in this structured gown. The colour and fit is simply amazing, and the crystal and pearl details make this dress one of a kind.’

Florence Welch, of Florence and the Machine, in Valentino

Jenna Robbertse, Deputy Editor: ‘The combination of old-world charm makes this dress so romantic.’

Jenna McArthur: ‘Florence’s bold fashion choices once again pay off – the warm yellow couture gown is perfectly offset against her fiery red hair. And I love the vintage feel.’

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Couture

Jenna Robbertse: ‘The Grecian element of the neckline, teamed with the insets of lace and gentle colour, make this look my firm favourite!’

Lynette Botha, Beauty Editor: ‘Love, love, love – whimsical, romantic, soft and oh-so-feminine.’

Janine Jellars, Features Writer: ‘Mila’s been wearing bold colours all awards season, so I was pleasantly surprised by the pastel, and she completely pulls it off. I love that Mila is of the “less is more” school of accessorising. A contemporary take on old-Hollywood glam.’

Jenna McArthur: ‘Mila looks amazing, the draping gives her look a Grecian elegance and femininity.’

Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa

Cheska Liackman, Editorial Assistant and Stylist: ‘I love her youthful, glamorous take for the red carpet. I’d love to wear a dress like this!’

Michelle Williams in Chanel Haute Couture

Kirsty Stoltz, Senior Fashion Editor: ‘Michelle in Chanel is the perfect dress for now. Demure, ladylike and a hint of glamour with the delicate embellishment all over the gown.’

Jenna Robbertse: ‘Simple sophistication as only Chanel knows how to achieve.’

Lynette Botha: ‘Love the shape and the way the dress hugs her body.’

Poppy Evans: ‘Michelle looked amazing in Chanel. Again, very modern but also very feminine. Love the texture and the un-bridal take on white.’

Best Actress winner Natalie Portman in Rodarte

Poppy Evans: ‘Natalie looks spectacular in the colour purple, and this is true maternity chic.’

Jenna McArthur: ‘Natalie makes pregnancy look glamorous in this timeless, chiffon draped gown.’

Jennifer Hudson in Atelier Versace

Lynette Botha: ‘The colour is amazing with her skin tone. Love the volume in the skirt, not so sure about the bow though. And I think she could’ve gone for one less bracelet.

Poppy Evans: ‘I’m not so keen on the shine.’

Camila Alves in Kaufman Franco

Jenna Robbertse: ‘Such an elegant dress, with lots of sexiness – the perfect balance. And you can never go wrong with black.’

Jenna McArthur: ‘Simplicity is key and Camila shows us how it’s done.’

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana

Poppy Evans: ‘Scarlett was her usual bombshell self. Her dress was a masterclass in how to wear lace.’

Halle Berry in Marchesa

Jenna McArthur: ‘Halle gets my vote in this beaded Marchesa gown – I love the dramatic tulle train.’

Cheska Liackman: ‘I always love the glamorous looks the most, and I find Halle’s dress uber glamorous and still unusual. I love the certain amount of fantasy that she radiates.’

    It’s a tough one between Cate Blanchett, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams, but for the Oscars I think Mila Kunis in Elie Saab definitly takes first prize. She looks absolutely beautiful and oozes elegance!
