There were a whole lot of nude-coloured dresses here: clearly that's a trend that isn't going away. Lace and embellishments are still everywhere, as are metallics. Interestingly, there aren't many black dresses: reds and navies are much more prevalent, after the nude/white/blush trend. Thankfully, the trumpet skirt (which hugs the hips and knees and flares out at the knees) trend appears to be pretty much over, and the strapless trend is also on its way out.
Anyways, enjoy the dresses after the jump...

|Rosamund Pike in Givenchy Haute Couture|
An elegant, beautiful choice. The bodice scalloping and waist contrast not only add interest but also give her an hourglass figure.
|Naomi Watts in Armani|
This is so unusual and interesting. I love the fabric and the silhouette and I think the back view is gorgeous.
|Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent|
The bodice is lovely but I think that it would be much more striking without the sleeves.
|Cate Blanchett in Maison Martin Margiela|
Black is much too harsh of a colour for her skin and she looks completely washed out here. If her dress had been the colour of the necklace this would have worked.
|Gwyneth Paltrow in Ralph & Russo Couture|
We can tell that this dress is too tight by the wrinkles at the waist and hips. I love the colour on her and the sleeve saves this dress from looking too bridal.
|Sienna Miller in Oscar de la Renta|
This was one of my favourite dresses of the night. I love the dark blue lace with the black accents; it fits her perfectly and I love the shape.
|Jamie Chung in Yanina Couture|
The blue overskirt looks like an add-on to me; I think I'd have liked this better had the bodice been blue as well.
|Anna Faris in Zuhair Murad|
The fabric is gorgeous and the style is ok. There's way too much skirt there for her and the effect is heavy. Also, that is not red carpet hair.
|Kerry Washington in Miu Miu|
The colour looks nice on her and the peplum adds interest. There's not much else to say about this dress... it's kind of boring, isn't it?
|Catt Sadler in Charbel Zoe Coture|
Well, this is... revealing. And sparkly. At least it has sleeves without them, this dress might tip over into tacky.
|America Ferrera in Jenny Packham|
I love the Grecian goddess look to this outfit, and the colour is gorgeous on her. I wish she'd worn a necklace but it's still lovely.
|Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa|
This is a welcme change from the usual Marchesa because there's no lace anywhere. I love the back view but the dress is a bit snug on her and I don't think the pleats on the bodice really work all that well.
|Zoe Saldana in Atelier Versace|
If you're looking for a dress that will make your hips look huge and your bust look small, look no further: you've found it.
|Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture|
Many people loved this, especially the back view. It is definitely unusual, and it's kind of neat, but I do wish that the black appeared somewhere on the front, too. The way the dress fits from the front is exquisite.
|Rita Ora in Marchesa|
That train is rather huge. The bodice is interesting but the gold is too close to her skin so it ends up looking strange.
Rita Ora in Vera Wang CollectionI much prefer this performance dress to her red carpet dress. I don't love that it's a mullet dress but I do love the shapes the dress makes, the dropped waist, and the fabric choices.
|Felicity Jones in Alexander McQueen|
I love the bodice, and I love the skirt, but I don't love the place they meet. I think a belt might help. Still, the colour is lovely on her and it works for her overall.
|Giuliana Rancic in Mireille Dagher|
This is all right. The colour isn't quite right on her but the silhouette is fine.
|Jennifer Hudson in Romona Keveza|
I love this; it's sleek and sexy, fits her really well, and I love the colour against her skin tone. A necklace would have made this perfect.
|Gina Rodriguez in Manon Gobard for Red Carpet Green Dress|
The Red Carpet Green Dress is a competition where designers create red carpet looks out of socially responsible fabrics. The colour is gorgeous and it fits her well.
|Kelly Ripa in Christian Siriano|
This is nice, if a bit much for her tiny frame. Still, it has pockets, and that's a definite selling point.
|Nicole Kidman in Louis Vuitton|
This is a nice enough although the colour doesn't suit her. The red belt makes it interesting.
|Nancy O'Dell in Gauri & Nainika|
I like the way the train is a separate layer from the dress itself. I also like the embellishment running from the waist to the shoulder. I only wish that the dress was a colour other than black.
|Lara Spencer in Carmen Marc Valvo|
This is very simple and flattering at the same time. It doesn't look as formal as most other dresses but it does look comfortable. And pink.
|Kelly Preston in Gustavo Cadile|
The colour is great for her but the shape is kind of boring and the bodice doesn't fit her well. She could also use some jewellery to make this outfit look finished.
|Georgina Chapman in Marchesa|
Now this is what I'd expect to see from a Marchesa dress: lots of lace and frippery. I don't think this dress is exactly attractive or flattering but it is eye-catching.
|Laura Dern in Alberta Ferretti|
I wonder if this dress has pockets. It sort of looks like it, doesn't it? I like this dress because it's got an interesting pattern of embellishments and it fits her perfectly.
|Zendaya in Vivienne Westwood|
This would definitely look like a bridal gown on anyone else but on her it doesn't look too bridal. I love the draping and the fit and her jewellery. And her hair.
|Keltie Knight in Monique Lhullier|
I don't think this is the most flattering outfit that she could have chosen to wear. The slit is a bit much, don't you think? And the bodice is nice but doesn't do anything much for her figure.
|Ryan Hawke in Jenny Packham with Ethan Hawke|
I love the fabric, her hair, the jewellery, the skirt, and the bodice. The sleeves, however, I don't love. This dress would be stunning without the sleeves.
|Keleigh Sperry in Lorena Sarbu with Miles Teller|
If she arched her back anymore her head would be bent back and she'd be looking up. I love the dress but I wish she showed a little more decorum. Aren't I the old fuddy-duddy?
|Rene Russo in J. Mendel|
I like this. What saves it from looking too bridal are the waist cutouts. The layers are interesting, the neckline is gorgeous, and it fits her so well.
|Brooke Anderson in Leanne Marshall|
Aside from the colour, the bodice, and the skirt, this is lovely.
|Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji|
This dress is perfect for her: the draping is flattering, the fit is perfect, and the colour is gorgeous. She looks amazing.
|Ava DuVernay in Prada|
The colour is perfect for her and the embroidery is lovely. The sleeves are a little odd but the overall effect is interesting.
|Oprah Winfrey in Vera Wang|
The draping is lovely except that it sort of looks like there's a band holding her bum up. We can all use a bit of help to keep our bums up but I'm not sure being that obvious about it is a good idea.
|Roshumba Williams in Donna Karan|
This is sleek and sexy and gorgeous. The bodice is spectacular and the skirt fits her like a glove.
|Paige Butcher with Eddie Murphy|
I'm not in love with the strapless look but I rather love the colour and the back skirt. It fits her perfectly and emphasizes her curves. I love it.
|Hannah Bagshawe in Alexander McQueen with Eddie Redmayne|
Those hip pad things are... unusual. If it weren't for those, this dress would be just beautiful. The colour is perfect for her and the gold neck and waist embellishments add interest.
|Shaun Robinson in Leanne Marshall|
This is one of my other favourite dresses. I love the colour, the empire waist, the neckline, and the many-layered skirt. It's gorgeous on her.
|Lousie Roe in Monique Lhullier|
This is like a side-mullet dress with a train. I like the print and the style is ok. It fits her well and flatters her. I like this but I don't love it.
|Meryl Streep in Lanvin|
Calm, cool, and collected: this is perfect for her. She looks amazing.
|Robin Roberts in Marc Bouwer|
She looks put together and well-dressed, like usual. She always wears something that isn't too overwhelming.
I think she's standing like that, with her leg way out, so that we'll all notice her shoes. I like it: the combination of the skirt and bodice really works for me. I don't love the shoes, however.
|Rachael Harris in Nicole Miller|
I love that she wears glasses on the red carpet, although I she wore more jewellery. Then again, with a dress this busy, too much jewellery would be too much.
The dress fits her and looks fantastic. Her face is a little overworked, however. When she was on the red carpet with Dakota Johnson, her daughter, she looked like she'd had way too much bad work done.
|Thea Andrews in Rita Vinieris|
While the colour is lovely on her, the dress style is a bit too prom-like to be perfect. Plus to me it looks like the whole dress is slowly sliding down to the ground, which is never a really good look.
|Gayle King in Vera Wang|
This is nice enough but it's too short. A little longer would be better.
A lot of people didn't like this because it looked like she was wearing armour and a skirt but that's exactly what I love about it. I rather love that bodice, and I love the overall shape of the dress.
|Blanca Blanco in Lafonn|
I don't know who she is or why she's wearing this dress. This is definitely different but I wouldn't call it attractive or especially flattering,
|Lady Gaga in Azzedine Alaia|
This was custom-made for her. It's more of an art object than a dress, and while I love the fabric and the skirt, the sleeves are a little much for my taste.
|Lady Gaga in Azzedine Alaia|
I preferred this dress to the red carpet dress; it's interesting and worked for the song. Not that anyone was really paying attention to the dress for her amazing performance.
|Jennifer Aniston in Atelier Versace|
This is interesting; I like the way the embellishment swirls around the dress. It's more gorgeous when it's on tv; the still photos don't do it justice.
|Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad|
Even though the neckline goes down to there and there's a but of underboob showing, this dress is lobely. I like the draping and sparkly bits, which add interest to the dress.
|Solange Knowles in Christian Siriano|
What is there to say? I think this is a jumpsuit with layers. Oh - and pockets! That's the best part.
|Jessica Chastain in Givenchy Haute Couture|
Oh yes, I do love this dress, too - it's another one of my favourites. I love the cowl front and back, the bodice, the shape, the colour, how it fits, and how it looks. This is beautiful.
|Emma Stone in Elie Saab Couture|
I love everything about this dress except for the colour, which doesn't suit her. Imagine this in a blue - wouldn't that be perfect? This is gorgeous: great design and well-fitted.
|Keira Knightly in Valentino|
It kind of looks like she draped a sheer curtain around her, doesn't it? It's too long, too big, and too the wrong colour for her.
|Viola Davis in Zac Posen|
Although this has a bit of the bridal and prom look about it, I like the flap on the skirt and the sleeves. Plus the colour is nice on her.
|Michelle Schumacher with J.K. Simmons|
The colour is gorgeous on her and the dress is flattering - especially with that wide neckline. I don't love the sleeves but they work, somehow, with the overall dress.
