(Getty Images) 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, Viola Davis stole the spotlight in her Vera Wang dress.

The Help's Viola Davis took the emerald trend to the next level in a brilliant emerald green gown complete with a pleated chiffon train. We give major kudos to Viola who opted to abandon her usual wigs in favor of her close-cropped natural hair. Her cropped 'do perfectly highlighted her jade-green earrings.

The 84th Annual Academy Awards were held February 26, 2012 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. While we missed the fantastic wardrobe changes of Anne Hathaway, Billy Crystal charmed (for his 9th turn) as host of the soiree.
