Oscars 2012: Guess the Gown

Monique Lhuillier

To celebrate her second Oscar nod (the first she earned for her performance in 2008's Doubt), we'd like to see Voila Davis refine her scope to a contemporary take on a classic silhouette, like this flowing Monique Lhuillier gown. With a fuss-free skirt and glittering crisscross halter straps, the design offers Davis an age-appropriate style with a dose understated impact. After all, when you're sharing a category with The Streep, it's best not to overcompensate with anything mistaken as garish. Meryl would never do that.
