Golden Girls: Our Favorite Ladies At The Oscars 2013

The 85th Annual Academy Awards themselves were a bit of a snooze, thanks to host Seth Macfarlane's sexist, racist, and just plain unfunny jokes — because domestic violence is just hilarious, right Seth?

There were some bright spots, though. We were glad to see some of our favorite leading ladies take home the gold, including Anne Hathaway's Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Les Miserables, and Jennifer Lawrence's win for Best Actress in Silver Linings Playbook. 

Musical performances from Adele, Jennifer Hudson, and Shirley Bassey brought down the house, and Charlize Theron swept our breath away with her dreamy dance sequence with Channing Tatum — not to mention that hot new pixie cut. 

And then, there was Halle Berry's dress. Holy. Cow. I'll admit to basically melting off my chair — along with another SheWired editor — when Berry took the stage in a sparkling, two-toned, floor-length Marchesa gown. Take a gander for yourself here (from both the front and the back — you're welcome). Then keep reading to see our sartorial selections from Oscars night 2013.

The Show Queen contingent at SheWired was totally rooting for Anne Hathaway, who won a well-deserved Oscar for best supporting actress for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables. And for those calling Hathaway's dress "Les Nipplerables," we'd like to introduce you to the concept of darts, offering texture and body to a slinky dress like Hathaway's Prada.

And we're fans of pretty much anything Kerry Washington does — it takes a fierce woman to pull off that neon salmon tone.
