Academy Award Dress Winners: Ladies in Red

Bravo to the Hollywood stars bold enough to stand out at last night's 80th annual Academy Awards wearing RED on the red-carpet.

Miley Cyrus earns an ovation for the bright red evening gown with cap sleeves. Watch for that design to inspire look-alike designs at a fraction of the price of the evening gown Valentino created for Cyrus.
Helen Mirren, always a portrait of grace and elegance, takes a bow for her choice of a crimson square neckline satin gown with silver sleeves which we can only guess are made of lace and beads.

Ann Hathaway steals the show in a Marchesa gown with sash of red rosettes.

Heida Klum takes a curtain call for her very full volune dress by Galliano that is being aunctioned off to raise money for women and heart disease.
