The best dressed Oscars 2012 list includes anyone and everyone who rocked the red carpet at the 84th Annual Academy Awards on February 26, 2012. Entries on this list include some Oscar nominees, particularly actresses (though actors can certainly wear tuxes beautifully), along with veteran actors and Oscar presenters. (Be sure to check out the Worst Dressed list as well when you're done here!) Celebrities know that the Academy Awards red carpet is THE biggest of the big when it comes to glamorous gowns and sparkling jewels and accessories, so no expense is spared. This list includes the most beautiful, best dressed, A-listers at the 2012 Oscars. Be sure to vote for your favorites, and obviously if you think a celeb's look fell far short of "best dressed," vote them down.

Unlike some other major awards shows, the Oscars red carpet tends to be very, very classic. A celebrity who wants to take a huge fashion risk would be well-served to NOT do it at the Academy Awards. The Oscars, traditionally, are all about old school Hollywood glitz and glamor. This is the time for true fashionistas to shine, with designers gladly making Oscar dresses for top nominees to gain exposure for their designs.

Who will be among the best dressed at the 2012 Oscars? Actresses who could steal the spotlight include Academy Award nominees Viola Davis, Michelle Williams, Rooney Mara, Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain. Other potential head-turners include Bérénice Bejo, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Mila Kunis, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Reese Witherspoon, Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Veteran actresses Helen Mirren, Glenn Close and Meryl Streep are always a sure bet for almost any "best dressed" list. They've walked so many red carpets over the years, how could they go wrong? Many of the aforementioned actresses were on the best dressed at the 2012 Golden Globes red carpet list, too, so it's a safe bet they'll go all out at the Oscars as well.

Couples-wise, some of the best dressed at the 2012 Oscars will likely include George Clooney and Stacy Keibler (she dazzled on the Golden Globes' red carpet in 2012), and, of course, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Enjoy this list of the 2012 Oscars best dressed list, and again, vote for the celeb that you think rocked the best awards show look of the year!
