We held out hope for a much improved red carpet through awards season, having slightly suffered through the Golden Globes and the Grammys. Thankfully, Oscar night fashion was much improved. Here are some trends from the best-dressed of the night.

Return of a trend: Ball gown styling. This old Hollywood glamorous shape took on new life with Penelope Cruz looking stunning in vintage Pierre Balmain and Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Dior Haute Couture. Try out a subtle version of the trend with this Pale Yellow Dress from JS Boutique ($180).

Fresh color statement: White gowns
. We cannot say how gorgeous these dresses were in refreshing shapes with such stunning details. The ladies who brought the house down in what are soon to be the best wedding styles to come were Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive and Taraji P. Henson in Roberto Cavalli. Try a gorgeous white stunner to take you into warm weather with this Splendid Modal Lycra White Maxi Dress ($158.)

Best returning color statement: Red on the red carpet
. Rocking the red trend in all its glory last night were Amy Adams in Carolina Herrera and Heidi Klum in RM by Roland Mouret. Every woman needs a red dress in her wardrobe and this Marc Bouwer GlamIt! Red Silk Drape Detail Strapless Dress ($267.30) is a sure-fire winner.

Newest color trend: Orchid/Plum tones
. New hues of lavender and plum dresses made their way onto the carpet for a pop of romance. Looking stunning in the pretty hue were Natalie Portman in Rodarte and Alicia Keys in Armani Prive. Lighten up your own wardrobe with this T-Bags One Shoulder Grecian Dress ($215.)
