A few times a year, the regular people of the world gather with the common goal of watching the stars of Hollywood rise and fall in accordance with their award show outfit choices.

post-baby body in a tight fitting Dolce and Gabbana blush dress. She kept it simple as she told Ryan Seacrest Its tight. Its lacy. Thats all there is to it.
Nominated for her songSkyfall, Adele also made her first
appearance since having a baby. She didnt stray too far from her typical black, floor-length gown.

little less Hunger Games and asurprising level of classy, in her bright red-oraange, strapless, belted A-line Dior Haute Couture dress.
Zooey Deschanel was also able to don the color of the carpet in her Oscar de la Renta strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline. True to her unique sense of style,Deschanel also sported some film camera nail art and a simple ponytail.
