2011 Oscars Red Carpet Dresses

Time for a little red carpet gazing at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Here are some of the looks that caught our eyes at the 2011 Oscars:

Fiery Hot Hues

2011 oscars red carpet dresses - Fiery Hot Gowns: Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang, Jennifer Hudson in Atelier Versace, Anne Hathaway in Valentino, Penelope Cruz in L'Wren Scott at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards

Deep burgundy, spicy paprika and zesty tangerine orange, these ladies shows how to stand out in red on the red carpet. From left: Sandra Bullock in strapless Vera Wang gown with split at the bust, Jennifer Hudson in halter neck Versace gown with origami pleated skirt (LOVE!), Anne Hathaway in Valentino and Penelope Cruz in a wine red L’Wren Scott dress with embroidered detail.

Purple Reigns

Red carpet royalty in shades of purple: Mila Kunis in a romantic lavender Elie Saab Couture (beautiful dress but color washes her out a bit), best actress Natalie Portman looks regally elegant in plum off-shoulder Rodarte gown, Cate Blanchett in a you-either-love-it-or-hate-it pale lavender Givenchy Couture gown and Scarlett Johansson showed some sexy back in a berry hued lace Dolce & Gabbana gown with cutout detail at the back.
