Want to learn how to dance like a "Slumdog Millionaire"? As part of the pre-Oscar hoopla, personable 33-year-old Artesia-based Bollywood choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan was called in to instruct media personalities and television viewers in one of the most popular dance forms in the world, a combination of classical Indian dance, folk dance and Western styles like hip-hop, Latin and jazz.

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.

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.
