Oscars 2012 Red Carpet: Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, Jennifer Lopez And More! (PHOTOS)

The 84th annual Academy Awards were dazzling (per usual) and the stars did not disappoint on the red carpet.

First, a huge congratulations to Octavia Spencer who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and looked stunning in a sparkly silver Tadashi Shoji gown.

Spencer's "The Help" co-star Viola Davis didn't snag the award for best actress, but she definitely make out best-dressed list in an emerald Vera Wang gown. Davis simply glowed as she made her way down the red carpet--and we love her au natural 'do.

Rounding out our best-dressed list were: Esperanza Spalding in a beautiful baby blue ballgown (and all that glorious hair), Jennifer Lopez in a shimmery Zuhair Murad dress and Sean "Diddy" Combs looked dapper in a tailored tux (complete with a personal lint remover).

Take a look at all the glamorous stars at the Oscars, the Governor's Ball, the Vanity Fair Party, Elton John's AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party and all the other festivities from Hollywood's biggest night.
