Ladies rock red on red carpet


Actress Jennifer Lawrence arrives before the 83rd Academy Awards.


From beginning to the end of the Academy Awards' red carpet, early arrival Jennifer Lawrence's look carried the day. She was fresh and sleek in a saturated red Calvin Klein gown and long earrings barely visible under long, blond hair framing her pretty face.

Ms. Lawrence, represented classy, young Hollywood, followed by 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, in custom Marchesa. The blush Cinderella dress had sparkle on soft mesh at the neckline, a pretty effect also seen on Mandy Moore's glittery Monique Lhuillier gown.

More trendsetters:

Color: Red was repeated by Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang, host Anne Hathaway, who walked the carpet in Valentino, and Penelope Cruz, who showed off her post-baby body. Jennifer Hudson was high glam in a low-cut tangerine gown by Versace.

Black and white: Reese Witherspoon did it best, rocking an elegant black column gown with a white strip.

Glitter and metallics: Gwyneth Paltrow shimmered in low-cut Calvin Klein, while Melissa Leo wore a busy Marc Bouwer design.

Sleeves make a comeback: Annette Bening and Michelle Williams wore short-sleeved gowns; Amy Adams' form-fitter had cap sleeves topped with more than $1 million in diamonds and emeralds.
