The 2013 Oscars took place tonight (Feb. 24), with lighter colors dominating the landscape. Dresses of all shapes and sizes were found their way onto the red carpet this year.

Charlie Theron may have a boyish haircut, but from her swan-like neck down, she was all woman. She wore a femme, peplum Dior Couture dress in wintry white and was one of the very best dressed of the night. The straight skirt and the sexy “V” in the bodice were just lovely.

Every element worked in concert to make this dress aces. It was structured without being stiff.

Some criticized Jennifer Lawrence‘s white Dior Haute Couture gown as “too bridal,” thanks to its full (and imprinted) train, and while it did smoosh down her boobs, she still reminded us of Cinderella. J. Law is a tough cookie, and not just because she plays Katniss Everdeen.

She’s rough around the edges but this dress softened her. She was a princess (albeit a tripping one).

Amanda Seyfried was jaw-droppingly beautiful in a silvery Alexander McQueen gown with a choker collar and a keyhole bodice, which was such a playful and fun detail. She certainly saved the best for last during the awards season run.

Jessica Chastain opted for a simple, blush Armani Prive gown with a straight silhouette. The sparkly detail gave it that extra “oomph” and Chastain’s lovely side part and red pout channeled Marilyn Monroe when she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to JFK.

Kristen Stewart turned up on crutches, wearing a bone-colored Reem Acra gown with a deconstructed hem and lacy detailing. She paired the dress with messy bedhead, and while some critics felt it was sloppy, she made this work. The slightly undone style her “thing.”

Jennifer Garner wore a maroon, strapless Gucci dress that was simple from the front, but the back had a poufy train that looked good on the actress’ figure. It was extra femme and pretty. With so many column and mermaid gowns on the carpet this year, this was a nice frilly change of pace.
