When Angelina Jolie does drama, she does it dark. The actress-turned-überserious-director was back in black for Oscars evening, serving up some well-toned leg in luxurious black Atelier Versace slit to there. We can't help but love Jolie's aggressively vampish pose, either.

We also loved Emma Stone's red carpet look.

Emma Stone looked ultra-feminine in her fuchsia Giambattista Valli dress, even if it kicked off some major deja vú for anyone who remembers the crimson Balenciaga gown Nicole Kidman wore to the 2007 Oscars. Unfortunately, Emma is not quite as seasoned at carrying off high drama as is Angelina Jolie.
