Edgy, sexy, laid-back or romantic - black can be all these things and more, as this week's best dressed from WIWT prove...
Who wore it best: red strapless
Hollywood's leading ladies choose a riot of colours to make their splash on the carpet at the 84th Academy Awards ceremony tonight. Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman and Emma Stone all ruled the red carpet with fiery shades of red and orange, while Gwyneth Paltrow Rooney Mara, Milla Jovovich, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Ripa were amongst those who played it down with understated ivory or cream dresses. Silhouettes were kept simple, with plenty of bare shoulders on display and minimal jewellery.
But who was crowned queen of the red carpet? Here's a round-up of the best Oscars fashion for 2012.
Michelle Williams wowed in this coral (or was it pomegranate?) strapless Louis Vuitton tiered dress, while Natalie Portman's opted for vintage glamour with a polka-dot-red vintage Haute Couture Christian Dior gown from 1954.
Winner: We can't get enough of Michelle Williams' effortless glamour.
