BEST: Kelly Rowland opted for a more modest look than her sexy Grammy gown, looking statuesque in a sculpted black and white Donna Karan Atelier strapless gown that featured a very Angelina Jolie slit.

BEST: Jennifer Lawrence opted for the ultimate Oscar gown with her Dior Haute Couture strapless gown, wearing a necklace draping down her back. Though it was very upside-down-cupcake and she struggled to even walk in it, the Oscar nominee definitely stood out in the crowd. She finished off the look with Brian Atwood heels and Chopard bling.
WORST: Zoe Saldana is one of those stars that always makes us pause when she steps onto the carpet, but her Alexis Mabille gown, that just had too much going on and didn’t really make sense, was simply not a hit for her. She finished off the look with Neil Lane jewels.

WORST: Salma Hayek’s Alexander McQueen Gucci gown was dramatic enough that she didn’t need to go so overboard with her updo. She finished off the look with Cindy Chao jewels.
Bradley Cooper and Gloria Cooper
WORST: We don’t usually put a celeb’s mom in a gallery, but Bradley’s mom, Gloria, donned such a distracting outfit we can’t help ourselves. Not only did her pink feathered caplet look awful on the red carpet, but it kept blowing in Jennifer Lawrence’s face during the show.
