Dior's new designer Raf Simons has dressed a constellation of stars in recent months, including two of the highest profile guests at tonight's awards. Both ladies wore red, Jennifer Lawrence in a strapless, 1950s-ish style dress with a molded bustier that sent the Twitterverse into overdrive chattering about her assets, and Marion Cotillard in a more demure red column with draped detail, which was whipped up by Simons especially for her. Any pizazz that Lawrence might have had was deflated as soon as she opened her mouth.

Ben Affleck may have been snubbed for directing it, but "Argo" certainly wasn't slighted at the Academy Awards, winning best picture in Sunday night's ceremony. In beating Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" for the top Oscar honor in the 85th annual ceremony, "Argo" became the first movie since 1989's "Driving Miss Daisy" to collect the best picture statuette without its director being nominated for making it. Although "Argo's" win was not a surprise, the introduction of the best picture by First Lady Michelle Obama was unexpected.
