With the Oscar red carpet kicking off within the next hour, we've decided to take a look back at last year's awards to check out what the A-listers wore on the red carpet twelve months ago at the Academy Awards 2012. From Anglelina Jolie's right leg which qualified for it's very own Twitter account, to all the hottest trends we spotted hitting the red carpet, we're taking a look at last year before the 2013 Oscars kick off in full style.

All that glitters is gold, and this was definitely a trend out in full force on 2012's red carpet; Jessica Chastain opted for a beautifully ornate gown by Alexander McQueen whilst Meryl Streep went for full on glamour in this show-stopping draped gown by Lanvin. More of these golden goddess gowns this year please ladies!

A trend we prepare ourselves to see season after season is a series of show stopping dresses in the red hot scarlet shade, and no-one did it better in 2012 than Emma Stone, Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman. These three had a memorable red dresses which wowed the fashion crowd, from Emma's Giambattista's Valli over-sized bow neckline gown to Michelle's layered coral Luis Vuitton number. Who could forget Natalie Portman's vintage Dior classic?

Glistening creams are always a red carpet winner, and this trend showed up in it's masses last Academy Awards season. Gwyneth Paltrow went super modern in Tom Ford, whilst Rooney Mara channeled the trend in dramatic fashion wearing a fishtail Givenchy Couture number. Milla Jovovich opted for all out glam in Elie Saab.
