Sure, sure, the Oscars are meant for honoring the greatest achievements of the movie industry, but every fashionista knows it's all about the dresses. Who can forget Gwyneth Paltrow's pink ball gown or Halle Berry's sheer Elie Saab masterpiece? For the 84th Academy Awards, Melissa McCarthy stole the spotlight in her Marina Rinaldi dress.
The Bridesmaids starlet worked the red carpet in a custom mauve Marina Rinaldi gown complete with a glittering collar and a jeweled waistline. Beneath her gown, the much-loved Best Supporting Actress nominee sported pumps by Brian Atwood, who inscribed a special message inside her fancy footwear. Her best accessory: Adorable hubby Ben Falcone.
The 84th Annual Academy Awards were held February 26, 2012 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. While we missed all the haute wardrobe changes from last year's show, Billy Crystal charmed (as usual) as host of the soiree.
