What I like most about a red lip is that it doesn't have to be too fussy, as the ladies of the 2009 red carpet prove.

Angelina Jolie, Evan Rachel Wood, Alicia Keys, Jessica Biel, Vanessa Hudgens, and Heidi Klum were all luxuriously iced with statement-making earrings. Angelina Jolie's ($2.5M) Lorraine Schwartz emerald drops took home the gold as her strapless black Elie Saab played a supporting role. To see the rest of the celebrity baubles, read on.
The party got started with the Academy Awards, but the festivities will go on late into the night. You've seen the red-carpet photos, but that's not the only place where trends begin. As at the Oscars, updos reigned supreme at afterparties and viewing soirees. Read on to see some of the best off-the-shoulders hairstyles from the evening.
