Golden Girls of the Oscars

While most stars dream of leaving the Academy Awards with a golden statue, a few fashionable ladies arrive dressed like one. A noticeable trend on the red carpet this year was golden gowns that brought to mind a gleaming Oscar stauette.

Stacy Keibler, girlfriend of best-actor nominee George Clooney, stunned in a gilded one-shoulder dress by Marchesa. "Iron Lady" star Meryl Streep arrived in a shimmering Lanvin wrap dress with gold accessories. And small-screen queen Oprah Winfrey looked fabulous in a gown covered in gold beads.

The look ended up being good luck for Streep, and, yes, her best-actress Oscar perfectly matched her outfit.
