Who is a style queen and who should sack the stylist?

Best dressed: Marion Cotillard

Do it right, and it's fabulous. Do it wrong and you'll prompt onlookers to start humming "we're going to the chapel and we're going to get married". Desperate bride-to-be isn't a good look for anyone, y'know. Many try and miserably fail. But happily, there's always one who succeeds.

With typical Gallic nonchalance, Marion Cotillard demonstrates just how to wear the award season's must-have colour. We love this embellished cocktail dress from Elie Saab's winter collection. And guess what?

No animals were harmed in the wearing of this dress (hang your head in shame, Bjork!).

Worst dressed: Penelope Cruz

Oh Penelope, it's just this sort of outfit that got you in trouble the last time! Do you really want those pregnancy rumours to start swirling around you and the gorgeous Javier Bardem yet again?

You know now every time you have one chocolate cake too many and put on an ounce or two, the predatory paparazzi will be thinking the worst.

And who could blame them when you turn up in a shapeless black dress like that?! So do yourself a favour and opt for figure-hugging, rather than figure-forgiving, the next time you're on the red carpet.
