We've seen all the dresses, now let's take a closer look at each part of the stunning gowns. Up second is Rachel Weiz in a beautiful Vera Wang gown.

Ah, a silk dress, we don’t see much of these on the red carpet anymore. The quintessential English Rose, Rachel always pulls off her red carpet looks with grace, choosing a Vera Wang gown for the 2007 Oscars. The dress sounded simple enough until you take it from all angles: the diamante detail at the bustline, topped with a pretty diamante bow and diamond pendant necklace hanging low on her décolletage.

But my favourite part of the dress was the train, with the layers of tulle, diamantes, and crimped satin. It adds a bit of fun and pizzazz to a satin dress you can buy off the rack.
