We see sheer, nude and embellished styles dominating the carpet. Mila Kunis proves lace and lavender can be the antithesis of 'old lady'. Helena is herself as always wearing Tim Burton's costume designer, Colleen Atwood - I love the clutch. Calvin Klein shows us how well the design house does minimalist beauty on Gwyneth Paltrow. Nicole Kidman is playing with structure nicely while Jennifer Hudson's body is slammin. Marisa Tomei's vintage dress from the 50s gives me asymmetrical pattern cutting flashbacks. Natalie finally wears Rodarte, perfect choice to emphasize the amazing Rodarte costumes for Black Swan. Lastly, I'd love to put Cate Blanchett's dress on Florence Welsh; girl was born to wear Givenchy.

So who's your pick for best dressed? Let me know your thoughts on 2011's red carpet.
