As they say, "all roads lead to the Oscars." Nowadays, that phrase is not limited to the culmination of an actress's film career but also about her ability to come up with a look, deserving of that much coveted Oscar. If you want to witness fashion at its very best, the 83rd Academy Awards is the go-to event.
Here are some of the lovely gowns featured in this prestigious event courtesy of ontheredcarpet.com.
This year's winner for Best Supporting Actress, Melissa Leo is draped in a white Marc Bouwer dress that comes as a lovely diversion from her downplayed look in the movie, "The Fighter."
