But whose red carpet frock do you like the best?

Awards season hit its climax last night as the biggest names in Hollywood brushed off their best designerwear for the 84th Academy Awards.

And as ever all eyes were firmly fixed on the red carpet as the stars made their big arrivals.

Leading the bid for best dressed were blonde bombshells Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz who wowed in white, while Angelina Jolie favoured black velvet and a whole lotta leg.
