The Best Bodies at the Oscars 2015
Gone Girl was one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, and star Rosamund Pike made sure all eyes were on her with a stunning scarlett dress that not only showed off her super toned upper body, but also gave us a peek at just one leg, à la Angelina Jolie.
Lupita Nyong'o wowed everyone last year in a Cinderella-esque ballgown; this year, the Oscar winner nailed the cut-out trend with in an intricately beaded Calvin Klein dress that showed off a slice of midsection and just a tad of her toned obliques.

Hello, curves! The actress, who gave birth to twins just three months ago, showed off her hourglass frame with criss-crossing ruching that highlighted her waist and hips. (She's proof that Exercising While Pregnant Is Bad for You is a total myth!).
Black was anything but basic on Cate Blanchett. While the sleek, form-fitting silhouette of her gown showed of her sexy curves (and her tiny waist), that vibrant statement necklace drew all eyes back up to her shoulders and toned arms.
Rita Ora may not have been nominated for her super brief cameo in 50 Shades of Grey (ha!), but she was a vision of old Hollywood glamour in this va-va-voom mermaid gown that accentuated every curve on her long, lean frame (but that pixie cut is all modern!).
Trust Reese Witherspoon to elevate a simple black and white dress to something truly glamorous. This number accentuates her shoulders, which look like the star has spent some serious time honing in the gym. (Try these 5 Sexy Shoulder Sculptors to copy her look.)
We can always count on Jennifer Lopez to bring the cleavage—but she keeps things totally classy in a gorgeously bedazzled, nude Elie Saab gown that showed off her sculpted arms and barely-there waist. (Find out J.Lo's Secret to a Sleek and Toned Physique.)
Well, isn't it lovely to see Dakota Johnson in more than she wore in 50+ percent of 50 Shades of Grey? The actress is a red carpet newbie, and this Saint Laurent dress was the perfect way for her to showcase a body that, let's be honest, most of us have seen in various states of undress. Well played, Dakota!
For a woman who plays a superheroine, there's no option besides a dress the fits like a second skin. Even with that giant (kind of distracting) necklace/line, this emerald frock ensures that you pretty much can't look away from Scarlett's famous curves.
