Black dresses were the second most popular at 2012 Oscars.

Some ladies, like Tina Fey and Angelina Jolie, went for a pure black look. Others, like Jessica Chastain and Sandra Bullock went for color combos that brought an edgy elegance to their look.

Angelina Jolie wore Atelier Versace and finished her look with Neil Lane jewelry, Salvatore Ferragamo peeptoe shoes, and a Jaime Mascaro clutch. Angelina presented the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay which went to "Midnight in Paris."

In case you were under a rock during the airing of the 84th Annual Academy Awards, Angelina Jolie's leg was on one of the breakout stars of the night...it even afforded it it's own twitter account:

I'm not sure who designed this dress (if you find out, please share in the comments!), but I really like it! Gary Oldman wife, Alex Eden Edenborough, attended the 2012 Oscars in a black, remarkably sequenced gown.

Gary Oldman was nominated for Best Actor for his role in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," the Oscar went to  Jean Dujuardin for his role in "The Artist."

Not sure who designed Kate Capshaw dress, but she looks lovely.  Something so sophisticated about her long necklace with tassel pendant. Her husband, Steven Spielberg, directed "War Horse," which was up for Best Picture, the Oscar went to "The Artist" instead.

This jewelry is so gorgeous I'm going to show a close-up of the pieces:

Sarah Green was one of the producers of the film "A Tree of Life" (Brad Pitt also helped produced the film) which was nominated for Best Picture, Oscar ended up going to "The Artist".

Clearly one of the least attractive dresses of the night.  Not sure of the designer.

Tina Fey wore a custom made Carolina Herrera peplum dress.  Carolina Herrera only does exclusives on the red carpet and this year she dressed Tina and I'm so glad she did. I think this is one of Tina's best red carpet looks.  She finished her look with Bulgari jewels, Stuart Weitzman shoes, and a Roger Vivier purse.
