For the most part, it was a stunning, but relatively predictable, Oscars red carpet Sunday night (no dramatic capes, crazy hairstyles or wacky nail art to be found). That said, there were still several ladies who stood out in looks that will more than likely go down in Academy Awards style history — for good and not-so-good reasons. Let’s discuss:

Jennifer Lawrence Oscars Dress

Jennifer Lawrences’s everything: From her Dior Haute Couture gown (which we totally predicted!) to her stunning 74 carat Chopard necklace worn backward, the star was the night’s big winner both on and off the carpet. Oh, and did you see the dress she changed into for the Vanity Fair after-party? Smoking hot.

Brandi Glanville’s dress: The Real Housewives star knows how to make an entrance. She kicked off the red carpet in a uncomfortably revealing ruffled gown that was just a tad (okay, a lot) too small in the chest area.

Sandra Bullock Oscars

Sandra Bullock’s hair bling: The star’s dazzling Harry Winston brooch (which she wore as a hairpin) elevated her ‘do from simple to totally glamorous.

Melissa McCarthy Oscars

Melissa McCarthy’s super-size blowout: And the award for “Most Voluminous Mane” goes to the funny woman who took her hair to new heights. No word on how many cans of hairspray were sacrificed to achieve this look.

Charlize Theron Oscars

Charlize Theron’s short hair: Sorry Anne, but no one can rock a pixie quite like Charlize. The actress’s chic crop was the perfect complement to her white Dior Haute Couture gown.

Jennifer Garner Oscars

Jennifer Garner’s ruffles: We have a feeling her Oscar-winning husband said, “I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you walk away,” when he first spotted the star in this plum Gucci gown.

Anne Hathaway Oscars

Anne Hathaway’s wardrobe malfunction: We have two questions for Anne regarding her pale pink Prada gown. One, what happened to the Valentino gown she was slated to wear? And two, what happened to her undergarments?

Kardashians Oscars

The Kardashian’s after-party looks: The sisters went to the same event (Elton John’s get-together), but followed two very different dress codes. Kim opted for Old Hollywood glam in a skintight white Donna Karan jersey dress, and Kourtney went for a dramatic Brian Rennie for Basler tea-length creation.
