In a sea of black, white and red gowns, a fresh trend emerged on the ladies of the Oscars 2012 red carpet — the return of the waist. From a broach detail on Michelle Williams's Vuitton gown to Meryl Streep's embellished Lanvin belt, Tina Fey's peplum and Angelina Jolie's cascading velvet ruffle, the high-fashion point of focus was somewhere around the middle.
Showing some major leg, Angelina Jolie stuns in black velvet Atelier Versace as her Oscar-nominated husband's chic date.
Elie Saab is slowly emerging as a top designer for the evening, with Bérénice Bejo in a mint-hued long-sleeve gown with crystal embellishments by the designer.
