On the holiest of holy red carpet nights, fashion mavens the world over watched with bated breath the parade of exquisite Oscar gowns. The 83rd Annual Academy Awards did not disappoint. Best Actress nominee Annette Bening's Oscar look was ultra-elegant. The gunmetal dress was topped off with her cropped hair styled in voluminous waves. The actress let her natural beauty shine through with a soft make-up palette.

Four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening is a 52-year-old force to be reckoned with. Also the wife of Warren Beatty, Bening earned the spotlight in 2010 for her Oscar-nominated turn as a lesbian parent in The Kids Are Alright.

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards were held February 27, 2011 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted the festivities, which honored the best films of 2010. Hathaway, who employed her stylist gal pal Rachel Zoe to dress her for the event, looked fabulous as always. And as well she should: Zoe's fee was reportedly astronomical!
