Since first star stepped on the red carpet at the Golden Globes in January, awards season 2012 has been a blur of sequins, bows, plunging necklines and thigh-high slits.

Many celebs had the difficult task of finding the perfect gown for several high-profile events leading up to the biggest one of all on Sunday. Now it's time to take a look back and choose their best one.


Angelina Jolie caused a fashion frenzy when she arrived at the Globes in a one-shoulder ivory Atelier Versace with red detail. She donned a slinky black Jenny Packham halter at the SAGs, before dominating the Oscars in a strapless velvet design (also Atelier Versace) with a daring slit.

Michelle Williams also made an appearance at all three shows, starting off in a navy velvet Jason Wu look with a headband at the Globes, followed by a red lace Valentino at the SAGs, and finally, a coral-colored Louis Vuitton at the Oscars.
