Is this the postpartum red carpet or what? All the commentators seem to be able to talk about is who has lost the baby weight (Claire Danes) and who might be pregnant (Anne Hathaway). But enough about that, let's talk about the clothes. Sexy as hell in a cream, body-baring Zuhair Murad gown, Jennifer Lopez finally gave us the fashion moment we had been waiting for, and one to rival that famously low-cut leafy print Versace gown she wore to the Grammys in 2000.    On the other end of the spectrum, another winner is Julianne Moore, wearing of-the-moment black-and-white by Tom Ford.

Ladies in red. The fall season's red-oxblood color trend seems to be influencing the Emmy red carpet. I love the sleeves on Mayim Bialik's deep burgundy Pamella Roland gown, though they must be really hot. Then there's Julia Louis-Dreyfus' classically beautiful, merlot-colored silk tulle Vera Wang mermaid gown with ruched accents on the bodice. And Tina Fey is wearing a strapless deep burgundy gown with corset detailing by Vivienne Westwood. But Ginnifer Goodwin's Monique Lhuillier dress with a high-low hem is my favorite so far because it's so unusual.

With a lifetime of red carpet misses ranging from uncomfortably busty Guinevere gowns to something reminiscent of Grandma's doily tablecloth, Disney princess Miley Cyrus hasn't exactly been fashion It Girl material. Until now. The sleek and chic futuristic white dress Cyrus wore to the People's Choice Awards on Jan. 11 was so well-received that it could single-handedly turn the star's fashion fortunes around. The dress was by David Koma, a designer who hails from Georgia, shows in London and is so new to the fashion scene that his website is still under construction.

This is like an Oscars flashback with all the Armani, Harry Winston and Veronica Lake waves on the red carpet Sunday. Then, there was a Sharon Stone-Gap turtleneck moment, when Helen Hunt revealed she's wearing a navy blue dress from cheap chic retailer H&M. Shocker! Oscars 2013 red carpet photos Back to Armani, though. He should get his due. After all, he practically invented the red carpet designer derby, when he started dressing Jodie Foster in the 1990s. Sunday, he's done a wonderful job with Jessica Chastain, with Naomi Watts' silvery sequin gown, and with 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis' dress, a navy blue, puff-sleeve Armani Junior creation with a back bow detail and matching wrap.

The red carpet before the stars come out is like high noon before the big showdown. If you squint you can almost see tumbleweeds blowing down the path. Print journalists, corralled like horses in their stalls, whinny in the heat, unused to so much sunlight on their skin. On-air hosts greet one another like wary townspeople with melting makeup trying not to sweat on themselves.   At around 2:30 p.m., the carpet opens to the talent, and the first hardy pioneers venture forth. Publicists ask if anyone wants to talk to producers, the talent behind the talent, but everyone passes.

At the moment, it seems everything's coming up roses on the red carpet. I love the photo at top right from Thursday night's CW Network Young Hollywood Awards held in Santa Monica. Actress Crystal Reed, left, is wearing a cabbage rose jacquard sleeveless dress by Carolina Herrera , and  her "Teen Wolf" costar Holland Roden is in an allover-rose and flower print shirt and pants ensemble by Ted Baker .  Also on Thursday night, across town in West Hollywood at the Fox Summer All-Star Party, Diane Kruger wore a gorgeous rose and trellis digital print dress by the talented British fashion designer Mary Katrantzou.

Texture aside, there's nothing cushy about an award show's red carpet. In fact, it's one of the biggest challenges of an award night. From the moment nominees or presenters pull into the three-cars-deep arrivals' circle, they'd best be ready to run a gantlet of minor indignities. From a strobe of flashes to a cacophony of shouts for attention, those on the red carpet have to endure ? and do it wearing formalwear and a smile. And they'd best be ready to learn their place in society.

Andrew Garfield sounds more at home in the snappy suit he wore to the London world premiere of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" than in the classic red-and-blue costume his character dons in the film.  Blame it on his "British reserve. "  "Spandex does not suit the British," Garfield told the Mirror on the red carpet Thursday. "You are pretty much naked, so you have to trust what you have is enough.

Perhaps taking a cue from Beyonce's showstopping, barely there Grammys dress by L.A. designer Michael Costello, country music divas embraced the sheer-and-sexy cutout trend on the red carpet at the American Country Music Awards held Sunday night in Las Vegas. It was impossible to ignore Shakira's Zuhair Murad teal blue silk jersey long-sleeve gown with embroidered detail and nude silk cutouts snaking down the sides.   Sheryl Crow wore a black sheer, diamond cutout gown by Christian Siriano . And Kimberly Perry chose a similar style with a geometric pattern by another maximalist designer,  Georges Hobeika.

L'Wren Scott, who was found dead Monday in New York, dressed nearly every A-list actress in Hollywood, including perennial fashion darlings Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Sarah Jessica Parker, and helped turn many of them into style icons. Both as a stylist and designer, Scott created a number of the most magical red carpet moments of the last decade. Here, we look back at her most memorable looks. Nicole Kidman, 2008 Oscars Scott dressed a pregnant Nicole Kidman in a black  Balenciaga  gown and designed a dramatic 1,399-karat rough diamond sautoir to go with it.  The diamond necklace, draped around Kidman's porcelain neck, is one of the most famous pieces of jewelry ever worn on a red carpet.

When in doubt, go with Giorgio Armani and the old Hollywood look. Jessica Chastain did just that, choosing a coppery-nude sequin mesh strapless gown by Armani Prive. And it may just be her best red carpet look yet. Oscars 2013 red carpet photos “It's a very 'Happy birthday, Mr. President' dress,” she told Ryan Seacrest, referring to Marilyn Monroe's famous Jean Louis gown. Chastain's Veronica Lake hairstyle and matte red lips are the perfect accents.

Barely a week after it came down the runway at Paris Fashion Week, Nicolas Ghesquiere's new collection for Louis Vuitton has already made its debut on the red carpet. And on Charlotte Gainsbourg no less, who as the daughter of actress Jane Birkin and singer Serge Gainsbourg is French fashion royalty.  Gainsbourg wore a head-to-toe look from Ghesquiere's debut collection for the luxury brand at the Thursday night premiere of "Nymphomaniac: Volume I" in New York.

The hectic pace of the Oscar night coverage here at All The Rage central meant we never got a chance to check out this year's winning Red Carpet Green Dress looks, which were revealed to the world Sunday afternoon as Olga Kurylenko and Kellan Lutz hit the Academy Awards red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The details of the outfits' eco-friendiness, provided by the challenge's organizers, are fascinating.
