Only the boldest of red carpet walkers dare to rival Oscar himself in gold attire. It just so happens that these brave fashionistas were three of our favorite looks of the night.
Jessica Chastain's gold-emblazoned Alexander McQueen gown was regal, to say the least. The heavily embroidered design was encrusted with intricate metallic thread for a masterpiece of a design.
Stacy Keibler looked like quite the trophy, herself, as George Clooney's date in this off-the-shoulder Marchesa number (it was only a matter of moments before this baby was snatched up for red carpet fodder). Meryl Streep, however, was the true golden girl at the Oscars, taking home an Academy Award for Best Actress in this lamé Lanvin dress.
