The 10 best dressed couples at the Oscars

When it comes to red carpet Oscars fashion, it isn’t all about the dresses. OK, so it is mostly about the dresses, but these ladies had some pretty spectacular accessories: their significant others. Check out the 10 best-dressed couples at the 86th annual Academy Awards.

Julius Tennon and Viola Davis 
Viola Davis balances out her gown’s brilliant emerald color by keeping her accessories simple, drawing more attention to her flawless hair and makeup. Husband Julius Tennon cleans up nice, doesn’t he?

Kristin Chenoweth and Dana Brunetti
Nothing says “Oscars” more than Kristin Chenoweth’s gold metallic Roberto Cavalli gown. Her boyfriend Dana Brunetti looks sophisticated while inserting a little quirkiness into his look, by wearing a colored bow tie instead of a black one.

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sari Mercer
“12 Years a Slave” actor Chiwetel Ejiofor looks like a million bucks all suited up — check out that watch! His girlfriend Sari Mercer’s Suzanne Neville gown hugs her in all the right places without being too clingy. Perfection.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell is the opposite of “Frozen” — she looks hot in her corseted Roberto Cavalli gown. Husband Dax Shepard’s pocket square and tie bar add just a touch of personality to his clean suit.

John Legend and Christine Teigen 
Fashion-forward couple John Legend and Christine Teigen rarely disappoint on the red carpet, and once again they nail their looks. Legend’s classic tux and Teigen’s floral strapless dress is the perfect updated old Hollywood glamour look.

Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo
Amy Adams hustled down the red carpet in a navy Gucci gown while fiance Darren Le Gallo donned a classic tux. Simple, yet stunning.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis 
Olivia Wilde has nailed every red carpet look throughout her pregnancy and this is no exception. Her Valentino gown flaunts her bump while still keeping her look simple and clean. The earrings and stacked bracelets add the perfect bohemian touch. Jason Sudeikis isn’t looking too shabby himself!

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Pairing a white tux jacket with black pants is a tough look to pull off, but it works on Matthew McConaughey; the peek of black underneath and bow tie help pull the look together. Wife Camilla Alves glows in a peach gown with a regal train.

Channing Tatum and Jena Dewan
If Channing Tatum must wear clothes, at least he does it in a perfectly tailored tux. Wife Jena Dewan really “stepped up” her style, with a sparkly Reem Acra feather dress.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie really do look like Hollywood royalty. Though Pitt’s tux jacket is a little too long, his shaven face and slicked back hair is such a welcome change, it more than makes up for it. Jolie’s Haute Couture dress shimmers as she walks the red carpet, and gives just a peek at her cleavage.
