While film buffs the world over await the drumroll just before the announcement of Best Picture, fashionistas get in on the action early. All eyes were on the 83rd Academy Awards red carpet with the hope of spotting Scarlett Johansson's Oscar dress. The starlet wore a purple lace Dolce and Gabbana gown.

The curvy Scarlett Johansson has been making waves ever since she starred opposite Robert Redford in The Horse Whisperer. Since then, she's received critical acclaim for her roles in Lost in Translation, The Girl with the Pearl Earring and Match Point. She's made a point to balance her art house films with more mainstream blockbusters including The Island and Iron Man 2. In her free time, Scarlett has a burgeoning singing career and two albums under her belt.

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!
