We've seen all the dresses, now let's take a closer look at each part of the stunning gowns. First up is Cate Blanchett in her gorgeous Armani Prive gown.

A stunning dress by a fabulous designer may be all it takes to stand out on the Oscars Red Carpet, but Cate is a seasoned professional when it comes to red carpet outfits as she has shown time and time again. She went with a seasoned red carpet professional in Armani, with the one shouldered gown suiting her body shape to perfection. The heavy embellishments at the base of the dress and at the shoulder balanced out the shimmer of the dress.

Accessorised with a black bangle studded with diamonds and simple chandelier earrings, Cate does it again at the Oscars in 2007.
